editor’s note

Little, petite, bijou, pint-sized. When the final touches were made to our cover, these were just a few of the adjectives that were bandied about. “Good things come in small packages” was suggested, then left on the cutting-room floor. Given the interesting mix of apartments and townhouses we feature in this month’s issue, trying to avoid clichés seemed the least we could do to reflect the unique and varied ways that homeowners are choosing to live in small spaces. Take our cover story on page 46. Talented film costume breakdown artists Jono Lousich and Jimmy Rogers transformed a bland, featureless two-bedroom apartment into a style statement of scale and sophistication. How did they do it? By diverting their powertools from epic sagas to a domestic setting – and watching a whole…

Reuben Looi Photographer As a photographer who shoots interiors and creative people’s homes, what is your advice for creating a space you feel inspired to work in? I am always inspired by light and shadows, so having a nice, clean, creative space with lots of natural light definitely helps. You photographed Olivia Hammond’s houseboat for this issue. What do you love about her lifestyle, and could you imagine living on the water? I love how simple and minimal her lifestyle is in the houseboat. It really shows that you don’t need a lot in a house to have a nice, safe haven. Personally, I can’t picture myself living on the water because I get motion sickness quite easily, but if that wasn’t an issue, then absolutely! What four words describe what your haven means…

hamilton my haven

Where is your haven? I live in Dinsdale, Hamilton, with Jassher, my husband, and Kazuki, my little pup. Please tell us about yourself. I work from home, making jewellery and candles for my business Arowm. I also make music. I am currently working on my debut EP, and as an artist I go by the name Tijay (Tiffany Janine = TJ = Tijay). When I’m not creating for the Arowm/Tijay world, you’ll find me working at Lush part-time. What is your home like? I would describe my home’s style as a bit of a pick-and-mix situation but with some very prominent pastel themes. I’m about little knick-knacks. We have quite a vintage-modern fusion, but since both Jassh and I are collectors I feel like our style is always changing, so I’m not…

What global trends have influenced Dulux’s colour palette for 2021? The pandemic has blurred the lines between work and home beyond recognition. We need multitasking, flexible spaces in which we can conduct our professional lives and also perform household tasks. Our homes should provide balance, calm and a sense of comfort and security. Thus, the colour and design trends for 2021 reflect our desire for reassurance and strength, with nurturing palettes drawn from nature, and furniture and decor that speak of familiarity and comfort. How can colour be used to change the look and feel of a space? Colour can completely change the mood and feel of a room. It’s also great for dividing up areas of your home for different uses. If you’re just starting on your colour journey, my…
