About Us


Born in Thailand to English parents and educated in Great Britain, Madeleine Hamilton relocated to the United States in 1976 where she studied at Parsons School of Design in New York. From traditional to modern to contemporary, Madeleine’s 30 years in the interior design industry allows her to work with any house setting. Madeleine uses her architectural eye in combination with color and space to create rooms that fit a client’s personality and lifestyle. She has participated in several design homes, has received awards from the interior design industry, and has been published in “Design Times.” Madeleine resides in Fairfield, CT with her husband and three children.



Janine S. Knauf possesses a  Masters in Nursing from Catholic University in Washington DC, and has had a rewarding career for over ten years as an adult practitioner in Primary Care and Occupational Health. She came to realize that her true passion was not in healthcare, but interior design. Janine was inspired by her love for antiques, and travels throughout Europe. Janine resides in New Canaan, CT with her husband and four children.



Together Madeleine and Janine have created Tradome Home & Interiors. Tradome is the new modern traditional. It is the perfect combination of classic traditional decor and modern, fresh, artful flair.


“We strive to enrich peoples’ homes with our sense of style and passion for classic design. Choose a one-of-a kind vintage find, custom made furniture, or a beautiful home accent to transform any room in your home. We hope something special from Tradome will add a little pizzaz to your home to make it extraordinary!”
