When the latest issue of Homestyle magazine arrived in the post last week I couldn't wait to dive in for a read. Always full of wonderful interior inspiration and fresh ideas, this issue is a particularly special one because it features our home!
While seeing our newly completed build in print for the first time has been quite surreal, it's also a big honour to be included in the pages of such a great magazine, especially amongst so many beautiful homes. We were very lucky to have the talented photographer Larnie Nicolson, who is well known for her extensive interior work and hugely popular book, New Zealand Interior Style (with a second due to be published later this year). Along with the lovely Homestyle editor Alice Lines writing the story, I couldn't have asked for a better team to showcase what we've achieved with our new house so far.
Here are a few photos from the shoot, including a couple that didn't make it to print!
