The Observer has a lovely little Q&A today with Jamie Drake, the interior designer best known for his work designing Mayor Bloomberg's 2,274 homes around the world. If you were hoping for some info on the dimensions of the mayor's closet, or if Drake ever proposed painting the mayor's master suite pink—much as he did with one of his other clients, left—you'll have to look elsewhere. When asked if the pair ever had any disagreements about design issues, Drake did not bring up that time Mayor Bloomberg proposed installing a hot tub on the roof of his ever-expanding townhouse and Drake counseled against it. (We totally made that scenario up, by the way.) "When one has a fabulous relationship with a client for a long time, you obviously have a dialogue and a comfort and a trust that is a major and important component of each and every relationship."
