It’s a good week! Homestyle magazine is on the shelves again – and for me at least, it’s an invitation to an hour or two of lovely interior-perving uninterrupted me-time. Let’s serve you up a little amuse bouche….
But first: see pic above – Homestyle has a new look! A fashion-forward but still very considered design update, courtesy of Homestyle’s Art Director Juliette Wanty.
My fave home in this issue is a New Plymouth renovation. This kitchen! Originally the ‘kiwi standard’ U-shape, the owners had it re-designed by Rowson Kitchens to be a galley shape. It’s actually a very clever re-design – and there’s loads more images and info about it in the issue. P.S: I LOVE those green tiles on the splashback. If you like the Subway tile look but agree the glossy white ones have been done to death now, choosing a tile with surface texture or patina (even if a textured white tile) is a nice evolution of the trend.

Along with loads of real New Zealand homes, there’s this inspiring feature from Copenhagen, or a former-factory turned family home. This huge terrazzo island, with built in drawer storage and corner hobs is my dream!
As always, this is just a little taster – so get thine self to where Homestyle is sold and get the whole enchilada.
