Design Talks NYC

Jamie Drake

Jamie Drake is co-founder of the award-winning, multidisciplinary interior design firm Drake/Anderson. Arguably the foremost colorist of our day, Drake brings his singular, exuberant design sensibility—which he has developed over 30 years—to every project. Lauded for his ability to distill his vast knowledge of periods and styles with a discriminatingly modern connoisseurship, he creates environments that are both glamorous and eloquent, yet always interpreted through the unique prism of each client and assembled with a sense of contemporary comfort. Drake’s unmistakable flair is highly sought after by clients such as former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg, entertainer Madonna and many in the glittering social scene of which he, too, partakes.


Drake’s work has been featured in virtually every design publication of note, including Architectural Digest, Elle Decor, House Beautiful, Interior Design, and more. Among accolades too numerous to mention, he has held a spot for several years on the prestigious Architectural Digest AD100 list and the Elle Decor A-List. He also has been bestowed with Fashion Group International’s Night of Stars Award for Interior Design, named to Interior Design magazine's Hall of Fame, and was designated by House Beautiful as a Master Class designer.


Drake currently serves on the boards of The Alpha Workshops, the New York Community Trust and Parsons School of Design. He is vice chair of the Kips Bay Decorator Showhouse, benefitting the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club, and he is a recipient of a Partnership for the Homeless Director's Award.
