Entries in New Zealand (71)
I've asked myself many times if there is a land more beautiful than my own Australia? And each time I have to admit that New Zealand is just a little more stunning. Just. The same question arises when it comes to architecture and interior design and the answer might just be the same. Just. This Barn House on the edge of the sea by Sumich Chaplin Architects has stolen my heart and may just prompt me to slip quietly across the Tasman Sea and declare myself a Kiwi. Perhaps ;)
If I was an employee at Blush Flowers in the Auckland, New Zealand suburb of Parnell I don't think I would be actually working. No, technically I'd be floating on a cloud of perfumed beauty. That's why there is no one in shot in the shop. They are floating high, just out of sight, above the photographer's head. The design is by owner and creative director Kelly Karam with key pieces by Douglas and Bec.
In this world there are the "haves" and the "have nots" and on a Saturday it is all about the "haves", the "have to go to work" contingent. No need to be hopping mad about dragging yourself into the office on a weekend if it looked like this. No you'd be twitching with excitement to get in on time. New Zealand interior design firm Hare's own offices, a wonderful work warren.
