As Minimalism loses its novelty, a new generation of designers is keeping the flame alive. Miles Redd and Kelly Wearstler channel Draper via interiors filled with overscaled elements (elaborate door frames, neo-Baroque furniture) and a general sense of joie de decorating. Jamie Drake, creator of the bold Gracie Mansion redecoration, is an acolyte of the strong color scheme, and the firm of Diamond Baratta has fearlessly piled pattern upon pattern for a new definition of over-the-top. Don’t say gaudy, say exuberant!
