The Brooklyn House

The brief was to enhance the character of the house by removing some dated detailing added during previous renovations, to provide lots of storage for books, and to give the Living and Dining rooms a feeling of warmth and relaxed comfort. We designed the window seat and book shelves, and provided the curtains and colours. Loose furniture by the owner.



The Handley House

The May 2011 issue of NZ House and Garden featured the Handley house in Wanganui, a great project which typifies our style of work. Claire worked with Juliet and Rob to develop a very comfortable, relaxed home. Enjoy the images below.






Late last year we were asked to renovate a tiny bathroom, which felt overcrowded and dark. Immediately in front of the door, the previous owner had installed a wraparound burgundy painted wall which completely dominated the space.


Bathroom before


The client wanted to use a wooden vanity she had found, so Philippa redesigned the space to give it a light and airy feel, as well as maximising the sense of space. The floor is tiled in Carrara marble tiles, while the walls are small white tiles in a brick pattern, in keeping with the age of the house. This is the finished result.
