WELCOME to The Colour Issue of Simply You Living. Many people avoid using colour in their home, often because they are uncertain, even nervous, about how to make it work or because they prefer a more neutral palette. Cream, white and grey have become popular tones as they are both safe and effective. Just look at the Auckland home of Ian Webster, the former owner of women’s fashion brand Verge, to see how stylish a monotone look can be (page 100). Others, like fashion designer Vanessa Kortlang, operate at the opposite end of the colour spectrum, employing something of a ‘full noise’ approach when it comes to their interiors (page 118).

From the age of six, Daniella Norling remembers accompanying her father on drives around Auckland’s picturesque Herne Bay just so she could study some of her favourite houses. So the design director of Ponsonby’s Trove Interior Design was delighted when she was asked to work her magic on one of the beloved 1920s villas on her childhood wish list. Norling was also no stranger to the villa’s new owners – a well-travelled, professional couple who no longer have children living at home – as she had already completed a five-star boutique hotel on the South Island for them, as well as their previous home on the North Island. Like Norling, they are passionate about beautiful design and craftsmanship, and sharing her love of art deco, they too wanted the interiors in…
