A FRESH TAKE

NZ House & Garden - - BEHIND THE SCENES - PHO­TO­GRAPH: TESS A CHR ISP STYLING: RICHARD BRUN­TON Glass jug and bot­tle from French Coun­try Col­lec­tions CRED­ITS:

How ironic that “fresh” is how art director Richard Brun­ton de­scribes this is­sue’s cover image, con­sid­er­ing the home started life as a piggery. You can still see some glimpses of those days through­out the house, such as con­crete pil­lars, repur­posed doors and win­dows, and rus­tic wooden beams. While those mas­sive bi­folds drench the room in light and lure us out­doors, it’s the small de­tails that charm: tim­ber in­laid floors, brass feet on the ta­ble, and wheaten ter­rier Peppe Le Poo adding a friendly face. “It’s sim­ple, low-fuss and close to na­ture,” says Richard.
