curl up

Relaxing into a curved couch or chair can feel like a warm hug, which, in 2020, we could all use. Referencing Art Deco and 1980s modern shapes, this season’s sofas and chairs bring a soft, organic feel into the home and herald a welcome shift from structured shapes to more comfortable designs. Take a load off and ease yourself into one of these velvet or textured styles.…

Holly Quinn always dreamed of putting down roots in Gisborne. It’s where the 39-year-old was born and raised, and where she and her brothers, Maz and Jay, made international headlines as surfers. But first there was the world to see: nine years in Australia, three in London and seven on the Kāpiti Coast, where her project-manager husband, Jackson, is from. Gisborne, however, was always calling, and in late 2018, the couple bought a section in Sponge Bay, halfway between Gisborne’s CBD and Wainui Beach. It helped that Holly’s brothers lived nearby, and friends from their London days had owned the section. But having a strong design aesthetic meant the mother of two was never going to be happy with a standard building package. “We wanted a Palm Springs style of house because we love…

mindful makeover

GOING, GOING, GREEN As someone who spends hours researching the environmental impact of every purchase, I knew buying my first home was never going to be easy. In the end, it took a year and a half of open homes, tears and heated discussions with my husband before we finally found “the one”. As vintage lovers, we wanted something cute and characterful, and looked at our fair share of 1950s do-ups and run-down 70s baches. But we didn’t have the budget or energy for a big renovation and our DIY skills weren’t up to much. Plus, tearing up charming old features that were still functional – even if they weren’t to my tastes – seemed wasteful. The idea of buying a new build and not needing to renovate at all was appealing. Some…

five summer blooms to sow now

Ah, spring - the season when we fall head over heels in love with our gardens again. It starts in September with the first flirtatious blossoms, gets serious in October with the arrival of tulips, then by November, it’s all on. There’s no reason this passion can’t continue until autumn. Inspired by seed seller Susie Ripley’s gorgeous selection of blooms, I’ve compiled a list of easy summer annuals you can sow in the garden or in pots that will flower their socks off all summer long. Cosmos For maximum romantic impact, this summer bloom looks best grown in drifts. You can purchase punnets of traditional pink and white cosmos from garden centres or grow some of the delectable new varieties from seed. My top picks for this summer are zingy ‘Apricot-Lemonade’ (above),…

cavoodling with maude

Amanda Holland has always loved dogs. But when her beloved spoodle Bruno died prematurely two years ago, the owner of Wellington design store Small Acorns and café Squirrel wasn’t looking to replace him. “But then a friend told me about some cavoodle puppies, and of course I couldn’t resist having a look,” Amanda says. Not that husband Mike Brunel wanted another dog. “Mike grew up in the country and believes dogs are meant to be outside.” But by then, Amanda and her daughters, Eva, now 17, and Milly, 21, had fallen in love. “We didn’t tell Mike we’d got Maude till the day we brought her home. And he still doesn’t know what we really paid!” Home is a four-bedroom villa high on the slopes of Wellington’s Mt Victoria, with views that arc across…
