Jamie Drake ~ Kips Bay 2007 Showhouse

I'm sure many of you have seen the first couple
of photos of Jamie Drake's Kips bay 2007
Showhouse. This particular room showcases
his furniture lines and fabric line he has designed
for Schumacher. I've seen a couple of photos here
and there for this showhouse but not one cohesive
post or article that has shown the entire thing.
The room he did is actually pretty huge. I leave
you with Drake's Ultra Girly and very Pink
showhouse. Very bold.

Jamie Drake is really talented with monochromatic. He
manages to draw drama a lot of drama out of them. I can
imagine this room in many other color palettes as well.
It would be neat in white and silver.

I also love his eclectic style in mixng period
pieces with more modern pieces such as the
lucite chair.

Love the polk-a-dot bench! Both the
bench and the fabric come from Jamie
Drake's collections.

Imagine having a closet with shoes and clothes that look
like an upscale boutique!

The armoire from his collection is
shockingly pink!! I think it's the only
color it comes in!

From this angle, you can see the other side of the bedroom
and the placement of the furniture. This room is pretty
huge. At first I even thought the whole collection of photos
was a flat, but it's actually one room and closet!

Love the pink tweed on the chair.

And the man himself.

Meg at Pigtown Design did an earlier post on the
Kips showhouse that referenced Jamie Drake's room
as well. Do check it out here.

What are your favorite elements?

The closet is awesome. In real life, I'd never do a room THAT pink, but I might copy that closet.

Yowza. That first image is just *amazing*.

Bayou Contessa said...

What a perfect celebration of the color pink. It takes great talent to pack so much pink into one space and have it come out so head-turningly well. I love the polka dot bench, too!

M&Co said...

Oh so pink and perfect!! I think I love it all, but that bed is fabulous!!

Alkemie said...

Thanks for all of your great comments! I really love all the hues of pinks too. I agree the bed is amazing - I think it's the fabric that makes it so. The polk-a-dot bench is very cute too. A "celebration of pink" as the Bayou Contessa put it I think is very well worded!

Katie - I'm very much looking forward to meet you too!

That closet with the polka dot bench is one of my favorite rooms! Lana

Pigtown-Design said...

Thanks for the shout! That closet just kills me. I have two tiny closets, so there's no space between the garments or shoes at all!

I've always loved that gorgeous desk area, with the lucite chair and orchids.

bandelle said...

I've started to see a LOT more pink and purple these days. Have you seen the March edition of Elle Decor? I love looking at these images -- makes me feel so girly!

Alkemie said...

Meg - I totally would kill for a closet like that.

Acaligurl - I could totally spend so much time in a closet like that!

glamorous - Totally agree. The desk is so elegant and I Love the lucite chair!

Bandelle - the cover is so pretty!! And I love feeling girly :)
