Interior Designer, Jamie Drake is not shy when it comes to colour. He is known for injecting oodles of bright colour into his client’s homes. Which made me wonder if he walks the talk when it comes to colour in his own home. I was pleasantly surprised to find that his New York City apartment, in the western edge of the Chelsea neighbourhood was saturated with it! At over 3000 square feet, this is not the tiny shoe box that most New Yorkers live in. His apartment even comes with a very impressive perk, his own parking space attached to the unit! I just adore how confident and bold his space feels. Below are some photos of his home from his own portfolio at Jamie Drake Design

Here is the parking garage that comes attached to the unit. It definitely screams, “I have arrived! Snap!”

Jamie chose a custom abstract rug for his master bedroom. I love how dark and masculine it feels compared to the rest of the space. Love the red!

Finally, here is a shot of his outdoor terrace. Loving how he chose a modern L shaped lounge couch for maximum seating. Perfect for a New York summer evening with friends!

What are you doing this weekend? Sunday, I have plans to do some vintage clothing shopping and coffee with a friend. Today, Tim and I are looking for a little adventure, we plan to jump in the car and see where it takes us.  Stay inspired and enjoy your Saturday!
