Book Description

April 7 2009
Since establishing his office in New York in 1985, Thad Hayes has become one of the most sought-after young interior designers. As the twenty-two residences here show, he is noted for light-filled interiors characterized by calm colors, quietude, and elegance. His interiors embrace the period and the modern, significant objects and simple ones, furniture he finds and pieces he designs. Hayes’s rooms resound in meditative understatement but are not afraid of being daring. From a penthouse on Central Park, a Deco duplex on Park Avenue, or a pied-à-terre at the Pierre Hotel to a Palm Beach retreat and Hamptons hideaway, his designs are remarkable for their symbiotic sensitivity to the client and his own subtle, extraordinarily beautiful aesthetic.

Product Description


"...in the 21 private residences he has chosen to walk readers through the AD 100 designer’s ability to edit is always on display. But so are his predilections for 1940s French furniture, calming palettes and, overall, a simple elegance." ~Architectural Digest

"...The Tailed Interior,
featuring twenty-two selected residences masterfully designed by Hayes which exemplify the designer's embrace of light-filled interiors, quietude, and calm colors within his overall sophistication and aptitude for the period Modern." ~1stDibs.com

“The 21 residences shown embody the adjectives that former Vogue associate editor Charles Gandee uses in his introductory essay: rigorous, restrained, and reserved.” ~Interior Design

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice July 7 2009
By I.Peters - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Nice coffee table book for people interested in interior design.

When looking through the book, I initially enjoyed looking at these very polished and perfect rooms. But half way through a certain fatigue set in and I found myself trying to figure out what exactly made me feel that way.

Now, this is no criticism of Thad Hayes' work. It was only my personal preferences that got in the way: After looking at picture after picture of these styled rooms I was starting to yearn for more color. Yes, there are a few color details in most rooms (think blue Buddha head on the front cover) but just not enough for my personal taste. The vast majority of rooms is beige, cream, gray and brown-colored. Which makes for elegant backdrops for the many art collections Hayes' clients own, but I found the reduction a bit foreseeable - page after page. I also felt that many of Hayes' rooms seem to rely on symmetry to achieve the look. Again too much of it for my personal preferences.

I think the title "Tailored Interior" hits it on the head. These are rooms for people enjoying tailored, perfect rooms. I had some trouble picturing actual people in these interiors. And on a personal note, some of the artwork hanging on the walls I find downright scary.

But - this is a great book to provide inspiration and ideas to the reader and absolutely ideal for people who enjoy very stylish homes with every aspect of the interior throught through and picked for effect.

So in summary, I liked the book and found it useful to evaluate design principles. But these are not rooms I personally would enjoy living in. Nonetheless 4 stars because it is very skilled, high-level work that is presented here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful May 1 2009
By SMO - Published on Amazon.com
A beautiful book featuring the work of Thad Hayes. I have long been a fan and was always pleased to come acros his work in different magazines but primarily Architectural Digest. It is great to have a single tome as a reference to these beautiful, serene spaces with incredible balance and composition. The work looks simple, but that is the hardest part - making it look simple and as if you couldn't imagine it any other way.

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have long been a fan of Thad Hayes. My first exposure to him within architectural digest, and I have followed his work there over the years, after seeing him in a variety of other sources, I decided to buy this book, and a very happy I did. His method of design, and just compositions are excellent, he is a truly talented designer. The book is a great resource if you like clean, simple modern American design.
