For such a small coun­try at the bot­tom of the world, the tal­ent and creativ­ity that comes out of our land blows me away. This month I am so proud to be a Kiwi with this ul­tra-cool bed­room set­ting which is 100 per cent pure New Zealand. Ev­ery piece in this room has a touch of Aotearoa, ei­ther de­signed or made (or both) by some­one down the road. It’s pretty neat to see what our cre­atives are do­ing around the coun­try and it was par­tic­u­larly fun to pull it all to­gether and cre­ate a bed­room ded­i­cated to lo­cal tal­ent.


> Our mates at Mavis & Os­born de­sign and make these lovely waf­fle tow­els and sturdy, prac­ti­cal laun­dry bas­kets. I love how some­thing as sim­ple as a laun­dry bas­ket can bring such a re­fresh­ing pop of colour and style into a room.

> Pen­ney & Ben­nett are two skilled print de­sign­ers who work with gor­geous or­ganic cot­tons and linen to cre­ate items such as the robe, slip­pers and printed bed cush­ion fea­tured here.

> Made of To­mor­row uses folded metal to cre­ate Scandi-style ac­ces­sories for bed­sides, shelv­ing and dec­o­rat­ing.

> Ash­ley & Co is a lo­cal hand soap, lo­tion and home fra­grance brand that’s a house­hold favourite of mine.

> Arnold Cir­cus stools are de­signed in London by Martino Gam­per but made here from 100 per cent re­cy­clable poly­eth­yl­ene. > Du­lux has a fab­u­lous Colours of New Zealand range that’s easy to ap­ply in your home. The colours are named af­ter some of your favourite places in New Zealand – I’ve cho­sen Du­lux ‘Mt Al­bert’ for this bed­room set­ting.
