Drake's done it again!

My hero= Mr. Jamie Drake...his interiors are positively flawless, extremely invigorating, and certainly vibrant. A man whose color infused room designs never go unnoticed- especially by design enthusiasts, bloggers, and national design publications. With clients including NY's Mayor Bloomberg, well, I think it's safe to say that Jamie has "made it"!

I was most recently stunned by his spread in this month's Elle Decor...

While Alessandra Branca is the "queen of red", Jamie could certainly be the "king of lavendar". I am no stranger to color myself. It is hard for me to do a room in all neutrals- which is why I admire Jamie's work so much.

He is not afraid of bright, fun hues and his rooms surely depict this.

I can't take my eyes away from the piece of art over the sectional (painted by Dan Christensen)- so simple but so moving! This attention-grabbing den is located in the Manhattan residence of two art enthusiasts. Jamie had almost a completely clean slate to work with (with the exception of fabulous art pieces that the client previously owned- not a bad deal I must say! I love all of their art).

A marble top table sits upon a rug designed by Jamie himself. The rug's unique color palette connects to all of the other textiles and upholstery in the room.

Different shades of violet are spread throughout this master bedroom- and it isn't complete of course, without lively punches of coral accents.
Does anyone know where the bedroom's desk is from? Not that I am going to rush out and get it or anything (!!) but it's just such a sight- lucite legs with a clean white top...what a blissful space!
Researching Jamie, I came across even more rooms of his that I never knew who the designer was. Turns out, a lot of my favorite rooms are in fact, Jamie's!
