Jamie Drake has gained a reputation for designing spaces with personality and place.   We love his style! (
I love this yellow room.  It would hard to feel anything but energetic here!
The tower in the corner is a stack of carefully placed books.  Probably not a good room for kids, but very clever and dramatic.
What an amazing painting, it is HUGE!  The scale of everything in this room is unbelievable.  Jaime did a great job of choosing the right scale of furnishings to make is look cozy and elegant.

This is a perfect example of a colorful room that is actually full of neutrals with a few well placed pops of color.  The color is well balanced.
We hope you enjoyed our look at Jaime Drake's work.  He is a definate style master and a really nice fellow.  Don't be afraid to try introducing a bold color into your home.  Start with pillows and a few acccesssories, you'll be amazed at the difference a little color can make.
