You may have seen my recent Facebook post about the upcoming Home & Garden show in Wellington. Just in case you haven't - I am entering the Interior Design competition with Olivia from Lucille. The brief is calmness and serenity with muted colours which inspire you to 'stop and smell the roses'.  
Make sure you come along and check out our take on this brief! If you do come along you can enter into the draw to win a mood board for a room of your choice - there are two to give away.

Also, if you haven't already - make sure you check out Olivia will help you re-imagine your tired furniture and make it stylish again. Look at these lovely pieces she has transformed.

Finished Pasifika Youth Space

I have mentioned vaguely in my previous posts about an office space I have been designing. Well this weekend the office space was completed and I have some pictures to share with you.  The brief was simply 'a colourful office space to be used for the pacific island community for training and lounging, with an admin area'. The budget was very tight and so I decided to utilise a lot of the inexpensive cane furniture found in second hand shops.  I recovered the cushions and combined the cane furniture with new furniture and fittings.  The walls were painted a pale grey and I chose a graphic wallpaper to provide a back drop to the touches of bright colours and neon. I am very happy with the result and it just goes to show what is possible with little money.

Wanda Harland design store

Sorry about my absence, I have started working out in Seatoun - how lucky am I? Can't wait for summer lunches on the beach...if only I could find someone to join me! That is the only bad thing about Seatoun is no one is out there so I'm a bit lonely! Anyone out there want a lunch buddy? 
 I did use my lunch break to do something useful and fun today, I visited the Wanda Harland Design store in Miramar ( they also have a shop at the bottom of the BNZ building). What an awesome little shop and so reasonably priced. I bought a couple of little pieces for the youth space I'm working on. Check out the website:
