Step into the fairy tale office of Hill House Home | Architectural Summary

Hill House Home, famous for its ruffled Nap dress, was founded in 2016 and since then it’s felt as much like a community as a business, Diamond says. That’s why Barfield Thompson envisioned the office as a clubhouse, starting with the stunning entryway covered in blue-on-white plants. “When people walk in, I want them to be transported. You step out of the elevator into a dark hallway, and then you’re in this boudoir,” Diamond says. A riff on a posh ladies’ dressing room of yesteryear — with a swoon sofa, a curtained armoire and a frilly vanity skirt – this dreamy space is the only one devoid of natural light, giving Barfield Thompson the opportunity to “play with intense colors and patterns,” the designer points out.

The majority of Hill House Home’s 24 staff camp out in the open-plan workspace, which Barfield Thompson has washed in an exclusive Hill House Home pale pink and decorated with Diamond’s campaign images. They give off “a fairytale vibe,” as Barfield Thompson puts it, so she turned them into large-scale pieces that look like fine art.

Diamond, unaccustomed to private offices, often hangs out here with her colleagues, but also has her own haunt (“I’ve never had a door on my office before, so it’s a great moment,” she says) that Barfield Thompson adorned with a palette of pinks, greens, and blues, complemented by mid-century French furnishings and whimsical touches like a Jean Roger ceramic frog planter. Finding a synergy between fashion and interior design, Barfield Thompson experimented with scale and texture by decorating the room with a lattice print that she ‘blew up’ from a Hill dress pattern House Home.

In the office kitchen, a breakfast nook accommodates frequent snacks for staff.

Continuing her fashion and home synergies, Barfield Thompson took inspiration from a trellis print featured in Hill House Home’s collection when designing the fabric and wallpaper for Diamond’s ‘big girl office’.
