Following yesterday’s interview with award-winning interior designer Thomas Hamel, today he’s giving us a sneak peek behind the scenes of his own home. And how’s that for a bed? Amazing! You can see why it’s his favourite thing in the apartment! “It’s a perfect cocoon to protect me from the world,” he says.
I personally love how his home is full of texture and beautiful standout pieces and is incredibly warm and inviting despite being a very neutral palette.
I asked Thomas to share a few favourites with us:
Homewares shops/brands? I am quite partial to Residence-Australia, a vast emporium of home furnishings, lighting, textiles, carpets etc that I have helped to create.
Australian interior designers? I am friends with most of the known names in Australia, Michael Love, Stuart Rattle, Greg Natale, Nick Tobias, Marco Meneguzzi, Cameron Kimber, Margie Bromilow, Adelaide Bragg, Christian Lyons, Meryl Hare, Briony Fitzgerald, Richard Archer, David Hicks. We have a wonderful design community who all complement each other very well.
Recent job? We are just completing a true fantasy; a Scandinavian inspired reclaimed timber house with a full grass roof in country New South Wales, to be used as an artist’s studio. Talk about pushing the boundaries!
