Jamie Drake ~ Modern Moroccan Showhouse

Jamie Drake did a showhouse in 2006
that I thought was a really fun rendition
of a modern Moroccan room. It's not
the usual saturated color palette you
would have expected from Drake but
a considerably more neutral palette
considering very bold colors are used
in Moroccan decor. I really liked his
rendition of it though - very comfortable
and clean feel to it.

Very pretty painted patterns
on the Moroccan side table.

Putting a mirror on a mirrored
surface is a neat touch.

I've been really into grass wall coverings
lately but am totally in love with the
colored ones! The blue is so pretty.

AAhh lacquered surfaces - my favorite.

I love the bold yellow sunflower he used
on this blue wall - totally pops out.

Happy Friday everyone and have a
great weekend!

There's nothing I've seen by Jamie Drake that I haven't liked. Great stuff.

Great point about Drake's lighter hand with the color. Love the tables and lanterns.

ooh that blue seagrass is fab. Fyi, those side tables are not painted but inlaid:)

Alkemie said...

Thanks Maryam! I didn't realize they were inlaid. I can't wait to see more of your place.
