My clients wanted their family bach to sell, and it sure did – way above their expectations.
When gold is paired well, it adds a sophisticated element that warms up any interior.
Decent wall lights are hard to find. These Drone Wall lights in deep dark chocolate and gold are really going to set the tone for an interior I am working on.

From the leaves on the wet Ponsonby Rd pavement; a client’s kitchen with its mink brown tiled splash back; to the chevron floors at Artedomus, with that table!! The striking cushions from Elle Maison will liven up any room.
Storie – Florim ceramic tiles from European Ceramics; the timber tray and bowls display at Apartmento; the stunning granite slab from SlabCo; my favourite antique cane chair, and Pierre Frey’s cork wallpaper from Atelier – all creating interesting texture and tones, naturally.
This was an enjoyable project to work on last year, particularly as the owners had some vision, and were not afraid of some colour…. the right colour of course. As it is a well known sweet company, I didn’t think the predictable sweet colours were right. The Charcoal joinery framed the Dulux colours of Cook Strait and Huka Falls with the doors in Dulux Torrent Bay, and Dulux Whangaroa keeping the vibe fresh and lively.
There are so many options for rugs, it is integral to get the balance right within the room. The colour; style; size; positioning, as well as the components of the rug are all important to consider. I tend towards the natural wools, jute, hemp and sisal. It is reassuring to see the carpet companies coming out with more wool ranges again. I think they have more presence than artificial ones. However there are times when the artificial ones are more appropriate in a practical sense.
Shopping for a client last week I found a beautiful range within the inner city from some of my favourite suppliers – SF Design; Artisan and Designer Rugs
