PROJECT NURSERY This issue is all about getting cosy for winter, but there’s a slightly different kind of nesting going on at my place with our first baby due in August. Curtains and carpet have been installed to make sure the house is as warm as an old 1950s girl can be, and our spare room is slowly transforming from dumping ground to nursery. We don’t know our baby’s gender but there will be plenty of colour – I’m thinking dusty blues, mustards and pinks to cover all bases. Here’s a collection of things I’ve got my eye on… instagram @yourhomeandgarden e: SHOW US YOUR RENOS!

What is your work and study background? I’m from Christchurch and studied textile design at Massey University. After finishing my Master’s, I stayed on in Wellington for a year or so before heading over to China to teach design at a university. I moved back to Christchurch in May 2017, which is when I met Ami Muir (who initially owned the store) and started working with Pepa. Ami offered me the incredible opportunity late last year to purchase Pepa and continue the magic! What do you love about stationery and paper goods? As a designer and maker, I adore beautifully made, tactile goods and dynamic uses of colour, so stationery is an amazing outlet for exploring that sweet spot where aesthetics and functionality meet. How did you find your beautiful shop space?…
