Designer Visions Show House 2013

For the 2013 Designer Visions Show House, Jamie Drake envisioned a very glamorous and urbane client, inventing her as the granddaughter of Josephine Baker. "The minute I saw Walker Tower - a marvelous 1929 Art Deco skyscraper - I was transported back to a time that was exuberant and forward-thinking, when designers began to use straight lines, geometric patterns and luxurious materials. Josephine Baker embodied the era, breaking down barriers in a provocative and glitzy manner. The pink living and dining areas, are a warm coral with a sophisticated, feminine point of view that connects to the cityscape. With an innate knack for thinking outside the box in space planning, Drake placed the dining table not where most people would - by the kitchen - but in front of the fireplace. In the master bedroom Drake floated the bed to take advantage of the views, and evoke a dreamy experience. Ever the confident, bold, nuanced and witty designer. Drake also teases views by stacking books on either side of the fireplace with most of the spines turned away from the viewer. The only ones showing are the few that relate to Paris and New York in the, leaving them to wonder what else is in this bold and graphic library.
