3 The lo­ca­tion of this home (op­po­site), right on the water in Syd­ney’s Dou­ble Bay, in­spired the unique ur­ban-beach-cot­tage-meetsso­phis­ti­cated-boathouse look of this fam­ily room. Hav­ing com­pleted sev­eral projects for close rel­a­tives of the client, the pres­sure was on in­te­rior de­signer Thomas Hamel to de­liver on the brief. Bead­board was in­stalled on the side wall and ceil­ing and painted Re­sene White Pointer Quar­ter. It’s matched with a sandy-coloured silk and aloe rug and mix of tim­ber, cane, linen and leather pieces. The ma­hogany-stained vin­tage arm­chairs “avoid the beach-house cliché” while the art­works hold child­hood mem­o­ries.
