In a world of minimalism, Scandinavian white floors and mid-century homage there’s room for something more. Lots more. Collections and art and middle eastern and asian influences and a grand tour vibe. New York based Thomas Hays has long been a collector of Asian art and antiques. I love the collections in these rooms and that they are luxe and layered. Beautiful objects are part of the owner’s everyday life as they should be and Thomas designs for his client’s needs and loves. As for that rooftop garden. It’s like climbing that stairway to heaven.
