What are your interior paint colours?

I use Resene Paint colours.

The walls are Blackwhite and the ceilings are half.

The Master Bedroom  and formal Living room are White Pointer and the ceilings half.

The two feature walls are Bokara Grey.

What is your feature wallpaper?

This is a classic design by Cole and Sons called Woods, it was originally printed in 1959.

What carpet brand do you recommend?

We used Feltex brand for its durability, it is stain and fade resistant and after years of using wool I am finding this an absolute pleasure in comfort and practicality.  The product is Okiwi Bay and the colour is Stone.

What is your cladding?

The house is clad in a traditional Board and Batten method using Shadowclad.  It is stained in Resene Cool Colours Woodsman Stain.

What are your exterior Colours?

The roof is Silver Aluminium

The facias are Resene Winchester

The Windows and cladding are Pitch Black

What make is the grey sofa in your living room?

The sofa is the Hilton from Freedom Furniture

What brand is the rug in the living room?

The white rug is Armadillo & Co, Sierra in Chalk.

Where do you source your art?

Mostly from Society6, Norsu and Popmotif but I also love Sophie Melville’s work.

Where do you buy frames for your art?

The framing is custom by Factory Frames in Auckland

What items should I splurge on?

Create a balance but try and buy quality rugs, cushions, linen and china.  Always add a statement piece of furniture, such as a designer Coffee Table or chair.  You can mix these quite happily with a sofa from a cheaper store.

Do you have an Interior Design and Styling Service?

I take on a limited number of design jobs per year.
