Interior Design

I’ve recently made the move to list a room in my Auckland apartment on Air B’n’B. I spent my Sunday taking some pics and thought that some of you might be interested to see the Studio Home HQ. Not exactly glamorous…but I am very lucky with my little light and bright space and the location couldn’t be better for me. Enjoy the snoop and if you would like to see some more photos or perhaps might be looking for somewhere to stay on your next visit to Auckland (or your

From left: Hannah, Billie and Leanne. ……  Hawkes Bay design darlings; Home Base Collections have uprooted their shop and beautifully re-homed it for the next 4 weeks on Ponsonby Road. Leanne and Brian Culy, along with Hannah Feltham and daughter Billie Culy opened their pop-up officially on Friday and it’s pretty obvious why there is a bit of a buzz around it! Their kiwi/scandi aesthetic is highly recognisable and like all the best brands – when the entire range is put together in a tight space its total harmony.  From the

I’ve had this coastal kiwi home bookmarked to share for a while. Designed by Glamuzina Paterson Architects it is nestled against a ridge with sweeping views of the sea to the east of Warkworth.

Designer Lara Cameron – one half of Ink + Spindle. Tegan Rose was absent due to Pirate ship duties. ……  My visit to the huge brick warehouse of the Young Husband Studios in Kensington, Melbourne is not one I will be forgetting in a hurry. Not only was I getting to visit the studio of Ink & Spindle who I have faithfully stalked online for years – I was catching them at a pivotal time where they were developing an exciting new way to offer their products with some cutting

Champions of clean but clever buildings – NZ based architects Fearon Hay joined forces with interior architect; Penny Hay to bring to life this amazing example of kiwi coastal design. Aptly named Storm Cottage, the bolthole is on the exposed side of Great Barrier Island and is completely off the grid meaning it runs on solar power and has independent water and sewage systems. Sliding screens can fully enclose the building when need be adding to the stealth factor of the black exterior and simple box form. It’s the oiled

Waiheke Island really is the jewel in the Auckland regions crown. Just 40 minutes on a speedy ferry and you are transported from the city to the rolling isle whose bays play host to luxury modern homes and low-key coastal boltholes alike. Its in a ridge hugging bach that artist Melissa Sharplin has taken up residence to work on a new collection. After being a not so subtle online stalker of her work for years I jumped at the opportunity to visit and was more than a little blown away at

All photography by Julia Atkinson for Glassons. On the amazing off chance you somehow missed my tirade of links yesterday on instagram and facebook to my latest offering over at the Glassons blog; Style Keeper… I thought I would throw a few pics out there as a back up.
