NZ House & Garden - - HOMES - Jason Bonham

Proud­est DIY achieve­ment: I hang all my own art lit­er­ally by eye. I get all of the things I love and just merge to create in­ter­est­ing scenes. I’m not a DIY guy – I use my tried and trusted trades­peo­ple to do the jobs I can’t.

Best money I ever spent: My Tout Va Bien cre­denza. It’s a very prac­ti­cal item, as I use it for a lot of stor­age, but it’s also an art piece. In­vest­ment fur­ni­ture is where it’s at. Buy once, buy right. Bug­ger the cost. I want things to look great for a life­time.

My hap­pi­est day in this house: Get­ting the so­fas de­liv­ered. It was a great day hav­ing a rug and some­thing to sit on af­ter months of no fur­ni­ture. When my last house sold the new own­ers bought ev­ery­thing! This week­end I will be: Go­ing to Italy for a wed­ding in San Gimignano. I’m so ex­cited to be able to go. So many things to see and do, the food, art, ar­chi­tec­ture, mar­kets, shop­ping, ad­ven­tures with friends. I al­ways get so in­spired when trav­el­ling; it opens my mind and al­lows me to re-en­er­gise cre­atively.

In the next 10 years I’d like to: Build a home in the country, a place to house and dis­play my art. I want a week­end es­cape from the city.
