On the Couch With Jamie Drake
Designer Jamie Drake breaks down his well-loved strategy for decorating with color.
MHI: Does your use of color change when you?re dealing with a large space rather than a small one?
JD: Small spaces often benefit from a huge color blast. I will cover the entire room in one color with the variety of texture from paint, fabric, and accents providing interest. I find by coating a small space in one color, the room?s perimeter dissolves, creating a sense of increased space. I always leave one plane, usually the floor, as a contrast.
