The King Of Color

Seeing this Manhattan apartment in Architectural Digest recently, reminded me why Jamie Drake, is widely known as the “King of Color.” I love the exuberant use of bright purple and blue in this space.  Mr. Drake, has the ability to create sophisticated and serene environments with colors that could potentially look juvenile or chaotic.  When it comes to your own home, do you go bold and brave with interior color choices?

  2. I do go for color, but am starting to crave more whites and neutrals. Jamie's light fixture choices are stunning. I especially love the chandelier in the bathroom!

  7. I do shirk away from bright colors but simply LOVE that fuchsia poof/stool in the penultimate image.

  10. I love bold colors, but I would have to say that our home is more of a mix. 🙂 These photo are beautiful!

  11. Wow, our home is a mix but we're definitely getting bolder as we grow into our style (and as we see more inspiration on the internet).

  12. The color looks great. I see the bathroom has more of a modern look especially the bathtub.
