See Inside Tommy Smythe’s Most Beautiful Spaces

Longtime H&H contributor and columnist Tommy Smythe crafts interiors that are as witty and memorable as the comments on his Instagram feed. He started out on Sarah Richardson’s popular HGTV shows, but Tommy has more than carved out his own career. In 2020, he launched his own firm, TOM, with designers Lindsay Mens Craig and Kate Stuart. His interiors are classic but never stuffy, and stand the test of time brilliantly. His bold use of accent color (particularly red) is perfectly in keeping with a personality and design eye that’s cheeky and smart. “Given free rein, this is what you’ll get from me: strong colors, bold gestures and traditional references,” says Tommy. Here, the beloved designer takes us on a personal tour of the homes he designed throughout the years.
