A serene hol­i­day home with dreamy, bo­hemian-tinged in­te­ri­ors is the last thing you’d ex­pect to find on a West Coast dairy farm but this one be­longs to pho­tog­ra­pher and in­te­ri­ors guru Ge­orgina Skin­ner. A long-time ad­mirer of this 1908 villa, once she pur­chased it, a cos­metic up­date was all that was needed to bring her vi­sion to life. “I en­joyed ev­ery sin­gle mo­ment and chal­lenge of the ren­o­va­tion,” says Ge­orgina. Since mov­ing from Lon­don she says the farm has be­come a sanc­tu­ary: “It has been good for all as­pects of my life and I value how healthy coun­try­side liv­ing can be.” Lo­cated be­tween Reefton and Grey­mouth, the house sleeps six and costs $250 per night, cow­shed488.com. >
