Lizzie Beere owes a lot to the girlfriends who, back in 2003, insisted she try online dating. The accomplished painter was freshly back from overseas and living in Wellington. She laughs as she recalls that she was “divorced, nudging 40, and the idea of drinking my way down Courtenay Place and dancing around my handbag was frightfully unattractive.” So, summoning some courage, Lizzie popped a profile up, and it wasn’t long until a (literally) fine man appeared in her world. Martin Fine, a commercial lawyer and dad to two grown children, was living in Hamilton when he and Lizzie first started chatting. Hawke’s Bay was an obvious halfway point between their two residences, and also where Martin’s parents lived, on a picturesque apple orchard on the outskirts of Hastings. “We took it…

editor’s note

Autumn, with its golden days, is my favourite time of the year. Although the balmy temperatures of summer are coming to an end, the drop in the mercury is more than made up for by the season’s crisp, clear mornings, dappled sunlight and a rich colour palate that is endlessly covetable. In this issue, autumnal tones are everywhere. Russet floral artworks take pride of place in a Hawke’s Bay love nest that began its life as a relocatable home. Coloured glassware in shades of amber and mustard pop up in many of our house tours, and on the walls of an impeccably renovated art deco home in Ngaio, heart-warming yellow transforms a once-dark kitchen into a vibrant sun trap.

Sitting comfortably among the gleaming high rises and restored historic shipping buildings beside Auckland’s Waitemata harbour, The Hotel Britomart opened in October 2020 to quiet fanfare. As New Zealand’s first hotel to be awarded five green stars by the New Zealand Green Building Council, the calm, cosy, organic vibe of the hotel’s 99 rooms and five rooftop suites is backed by strong sustainable principles, literally from the ground up.

grant's decor tips

What was the overall feeling you wanted to create? “A welcoming, comfortable and practical home that reflects our interests: art, gardening and textiles. We both work from home so our house has to be functional, as well as a haven for living and relaxation.” How did you collect the ideas for your renovation? Did you have some type of mood board? “If only we’d been that organised! I love changing things around – the art, accessories, and colours. I get inspired when I come across something that I love, while Jorg prefers to think about things for longer.” When it comes to home decor, what colours, patterns and textures are you drawn to? “I love old wood, battered metals, jewel-like glass, naive art, indigenous art, mementos from travels.
