The postie delivered me a new copy of Homestyle magazine this morning. Seriously, do yourself a favour and subscribe ($51 for a full year) – it’s always such a lovely little surprise when he latest issue turns up, and life’s made up of those kind of moments. #betterlivingeveryone #leahpanapa
Above are some sneaks from one of the many New Zealand spaces in this issue – the home of Gretchen Houston, food stylist and recipe developer of My Weekend Table. Gretchen and her husband are renovating an old Grey Lynn villa as time and funds allow; and this issue of Homestyle takes you through what they’ve completed so far. STUH. 👏🏼 NING. 👏🏼
Let there be light! This prefab-pretty home concept was developed by architect and interior design couple John and Nikki McNamara. It’s their real home, but also the first prototype of Modhouse, their new prefab homes venture. Sign me up.
Before you head off, I want to take a quick moment to congratulate the team at Homestyle for their wins at the Magazine Media Awards 2019. Alice Lines (follow her here on Insta) won Best Editor in the Home & Food category, Juliette Wanty (Insta here) won Best Designer (same category) for the third year running, and Homestyle’s parent company (a boutique business, not a big media conglomerate) won Best Small Publisher.
