Orange and Magenta

Good morning, everyone, did you have a good holiday? I’m back from Buenos Aires and busy editing my photos for a post tomorrow. For today though, I haven’t been able to stop thinking about Jamie Drake’s new Chelsea apartment and especially this color combination of magenta and orange!

As you know, orange is my favorite color so I love seeing it paired with unexpected colors and this is definitely my favorite combination lately.

It’s especially good with gold and toned down by a background of gray.

He carries the colors throughout the apartment in smaller doses and uses a variation of it in the bedroom:

The upholstery is a crocodile pattern of his own design and it’s just sick! Jamie Drake: feel free to send some of that amazingness to my house. I can think of about a million uses for it.

    I thought you might like some of Jonathan Adler’s Happy Chic collection available at JC Penny since orange and pink/magenta seems to be one of his color schemes. Just thought you and some of your followers might want to know. I love JA’s things, although I have not purchased any of this JC Penny items and don’t know the quality.

Thanks so much for taking time to comment! I read every one and reply through my own comments.
