Jamie Drake - Crayola Man

I am taking a break from my Christmas postings to talk about crayons.
I did a post a several weeks ago about rooms and their personality and used this room as an example for someone with a love of color.


In fact, I called it the crayola room because it reminded of some art we would do as kids where you took 2 pieces of wax paper, put crayon shavings in between and iron it. Remember? Then the crayons would all bleed together. Come on, isn't that what the art reminds you of?


Well, I didn't know it at the time, but the room was decorated by Jamie Drake. I stumbled upon that fact recently and decided to look him up.

Crayola Man is the perfect name for him.

That man is the crayola box of decorating. You like color? You're gonna like the Crayola Man. Check him out here and let me know what you think.

  2. I love color too and think he is a genius. A few years ago I went to a show house in NYC that he did a room in and it was stunning.
