The color king has done it again! New York designer, Jamie Drake, recently dreamt into reality a glamorous and glitzy design for the House Beautiful Designer Visions Showhouse located in Walker Tower, a gorgeous 1929 Art Deco skyscraper in NYC. Subtlety is definitely not Jamie’s forte. Take a look at these stunning rooms and you will never again want to use taupe!
Base color is Benjamin Moore Salmon Peach. Drake had a faux finishers layer a pearl type shimmer on top to create a subtle shimmer.
