Liv­ing. It’s some­thing that’s prov­ing to be ever more ex­cit­ing as Ki­wis in­creas­ingly want their homes to re­flect their in­di­vid­ual style. Part of that in­di­vid­u­al­ity is the art they choose to dis­play as well as their own con­cept of lux­ury – whether it’s a de­signer chair, luxe li­nen or sim­ply hav­ing the space to en­ter­tain in­doors or out. Our fea­tured houses en­com­pass all these things and each owner has cu­rated a per­sonal take on mod­ern lux­ury that is also very live­able. Like­wise, the three Style File prop­er­ties (page 78) may be small but all of the women have lov­ingly pieced to­gether col­lec­tions of art and ob­jets that re­flect their cre­ativ­ity and pas­sions. Art At­tack (page 70) and the trend sec­tion (page 18) show how art can be used as in­spi­ra­tion for styling your home or in­tro­duc­ing a new colour pal­ette and each of­fers myr­iad shop­ping op­tions.

Kitchens and bath­rooms are the hard­est-work­ing ar­eas of any house and any­one con­tem­plat­ing a re­fresh or over­haul will en­joy our guide (page 135). Just don’t wait un­til you have your per­fect kitchen to try the recipes from Neil Perry’s lat­est cook­book, out now (page 174).
