Thomas Hamel is a American-born and internationally recognized interior designer. He has now his own firm, Thomas Hamel & Associates in Sydney. After crafting his talent in NY City at Parish-Hadley firm he then moved to Australia where he established his company.
London Townhouse is the idyllic representation of how two different times, the past and the present, can work so well together. It all began when Hamel accompanied the wife to a de Gournay showroom in London.
It’s important to refer that the owners of this house were an important part, especially the wife because first of all they get along instantly. Thomas loved to work with her because she had everything in her mind.
They didn’t want only the re-creation of an old London Townhouse, they wanted to push limits. Thomas gave to this home the contemporary style and went ahead with the colors. That happened to contrast with the grayness outside.
One curious thing about the interior design of London Townhouse is that the dining room and the living room are in the exact same room. The owners didn’t needed much space for dining.
This the guest room! It looks like a small room, but the fact is that it has everything that’s needed for a bedroom. The colors were so well combined, the wallpaper mixed perfectly as well.
It’s clear to see in every room how modern and ancient can match! The different wallpapers give to the this London Townhouse a sensation of comfort and elegance.
According to Thomas Hamel, they found all the antique pieces in Godson & Coles, London fairs. But also in New York, where he found out the curvaceous mirror from Hyde Park Antiques.
Thomas Hamel as always in mind his client! When he has a project he is not a dictator decorator as he said. He asks questions because what is important here is that he personality of his client infuses with the house.
