This lovely Grace Kelly inspired Manhattan Apartment is designed by Jamie Drake. He is dubbed ‘King of Color’ by House Beautiful because of his extraordinary way of using colors to create stunning and livable spaces. Jamie Drake also designs furniture, fabrics, and various accessories. According to Drake Design, “The design of this Manhattan House apartment aspire to replicate the cool, unapproachable beauty of style icon Grace Kelly. Pale icy green frosts the foyer, living and dining rooms with piquant Kelly green accent panel in foyer. Refined, couture details such as the ruched trim on the shapely sofa reflect the impeccable manner in which she was always dressed”. Although pale icy green is the dominant color of this place it is interesting to note that this place is a mixture of hues and textures. Green evokes coolness and calmness and a dash of blue, pink, red and yellows help give this haven dynamism and chic. I so love the luxurious and beautifully designed fabrics and the elegant lamps and accessories used to enhance glamour and elegance in this already enchanting Manhattan Apartment.
If you were to choose a celebrity to inspire the design of your home, who would you pick? And why?
