Onetangi Beach House

There's something subliminal going on with my posts so far this week. Beach houses and holiday rental accommodation, accommodation and houses by the sea. Perhaps I need some time off?

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.
