Jamie Drake: The Library

This year the designers had the challenge of converting boxy modern rooms, usually without much or any architectural interest, into beautiful and interesting spaces.   They mainly accomplish this by covering almost each and every wall in either wallpaper, wood paneling or by utilizing a paint technique.  Jamie Drake covered the library in a beautiful sea foam green grass cloth wallpaper on one side of the room and wood paneling and built-ins, painted in the same kind of green, on the rest of the room.  Most of the furniture were kept in white, maybe to brighten up the space.  The ceiling was covered in a hammered silver paper that reflects light. 
The beautiful painting above the sofa is by Andy Harper and displays almost the same colors as the pillows. I have to say that this year the art throughout the show house is perfect.  The chair is by Julian Mayor. 
I love how Jamie installed mirror on the wall across the window by multiplying the stunning view.
