Who lives with you? My husband Cam, daughters Lily, 12, and Saffron, 10, cats Peaches and Jess, pup George, and guinea pigs, a bunny and chooks. Tell us about your home. We moved into this lovely old farm cottage in October 2020. Rentals are hard to come by in our region, so we were stoked when this option came up through a friend’s family – a lucky chain of events that will hopefully give us the chance to stick around for a while, especially while our girls finish primary school. What is the history here? Our home was named Oakleigh by Austin and Helen Hyatt in 1948 after the lee of seven oaks on the property. The original part of the house was built around 100 years ago. Initially, the family farmed…

“Rustic glamour” was the design brief for opulent new Queenstown accommodation offering The Dairy Private Hotel. It may sound contradictory, but it absolutely works. The 15-room hotel is housed in what was the town’s original corner store, dating back to the 1920s, and the resulting bold and quirky but perfectly curated interiors give a chic nod to traditional European ski chalets but are injected with a fresh and distinctive New Zealand twist.

Paint a sculptural dried arrangement 1 To create this winged wonder, I used chicken wire, floral wire, blue gum, hydrangeas, proteas, limonium, dried and bleached fan palm and spear palm fronds (available from floral supply stores and Etsy), and Resene testpots. Choose flowers that are already dried or that will dry well once suspended. 2 Paint the palm fronds. I used Resene Half Beryl Green, Resene Quarter Heathered Grey, Resene Blanched Pink and Resene Half Washed Green from Resene’s Karen Walker Paints range. To create an ombre effect, paint the lower half of a frond a dark colour and the top half a lighter colour. Leave to dry. 3 Determine how large you want your finished arrangement to be, then fold your chicken wire into a square so that there is ample space…
