Meryl Hare started Hare + Klein in Sydney in 1988.
She initially learnt about the principles of form, colour and proportion through her studies as a graphic designer. Her work as an interior designer started with her own home and then friends asking her for help with theirs.
“Our design philosophy is embedded in our strong conviction that interiors should balance aesthetics with layers of visual generosity. We weave texture, visual warmth, refined comfort with a sense of the client’s personality.”
Hare + Klein tries not to have a ‘signature style’.
“We approach each project taking into account the client brief, architectural envelope and purpose so that the end result is individual and bespoke. However, I suppose that the thread that weaves through the work is attention to detail, comfort, texture and liveability.”
Personally, I’d also add Hare + Klein’s sophisticated use of colour and superb artwork selections to that list. Meryl Hare’s interiors are undoubtedly some of the most compelling in Australia.
