colour my life

I had been feeling like a bit of a design impostor having never visited Milan during Salone del Mobile – the annual world showcase of interior design. But this year I finally got to go, and it was magnifico! I was fortunate to have Scott Fisk and Angus Dawson of Dawson & Co as my travel companions for a couple of days to preview the Noble Souls collection by Timothy Oulton. Along with soaking up the dynamic design offerings, we indulged in delicious pasta and vino whenever the opportunity arose! Salone del Mobile, the original Milan Furniture Fair, may have lent its name to this event (although it’s generally referred to as ‘the festival’), but in reality the furniture fair was a mere support act to the myriad installations and exhibitions…

When it comes to your neutrals for 2018, off-whites are anything but banal. Think Out Of Africa, sun-baked dunes, all the romantic beauty of the desert.

purple & olive

Ultra Violet – or more specifically, Pantone 18-3838 – is the Pantone Colour of the Year for 2018. Intergalactic, mysterious and moody, this blue-based purple is easier to pepper throughout your home than it may first appear. Purple-toned lighting pulled through meditative spaces brings a juxtaposition of calming energy to a room, while more vibrant pops of this shade in furniture and furnishings create the opportunity to let your individual style shine through. Mix with olive green – purple’s direct opposite on the colour wheel – for the perfect match. It’s true what they say, opposites do attract. Complex and contemplative, Ultra Violet suggests the mysteries of the cosmos, the intrigue of what lies ahead, and the discoveries beyond where we are now.– Pantone Color Institute…

A pair of golden lions from Egypt perch on the steps inside the polished front door. Protectors of Yvonne Sanders Antiques store in Auckland, they have seen many treasures come and go; Venetian vases hand-painted with gold flourishes, tortoiseshell Boulle cabinets, Capodimonte porcelain figures frozen in romantic narratives, and myriad crystal chandeliers hoisted up on the converted 1940s warehouse’s exposed timber beams. For 46 years, Yvonne Sanders Antiques has been the destination store for a sensory overload of beautifully unique homewares, where every piece on the shop floor has a story to tell. At 78 years of age, Sanders, a confessed Francophile, is a walking history class in recherché retail.
