Jamie Drake, the man behind some of the country's most dynamic, distinctive, and livable interiors knows how to create delightful environments and craft decor that is as right for a particular place as it is for the person or family occupying it. Equally comfortable in traditional and contemporary styles, he has a natural gift for making modern interiors inviting, and enlivening traditional spaces with a fresh mix of contemporary elements. Drake's device of choice is color - used boldly, fearlessly, and with great flair. Drake launched his firm, Drake Design Associates, in 1978. Since then, he has completed a vast array of projects for an impressive roster of clients. Drake's notable residential interiors include a Los Angeles showplace for Madonna, a Martha's Vineyard vacation retreat, and a stunning Manhattan apartment for Phyllis and Victor Grann. Drake has also completed multiple projects for New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg - a client for almost twenty years - including the recent renovation and restoration of Gracie Mansion, the longtime ceremonial residence of the Mayor of New York and the redesign of various rooms at City Hall.
