Rachyl Abra­ham, Auck­land

NZ House & Garden - - INTERIOR OF THE YEAR 2018 -

With three kids, Rachyl Abra­ham wanted the master suite to be a calm and rest­ful adult space. The open beam ceil­ing en­sures head­room is max­imised for an airy feel. Gar­ments can be on dis­play: “I was in­spired by the idea of a beau­ti­ful cloth­ing bou­tique. There’s a spot to put shoes on and drawer tops for dis­play.” The fur­nish­ings add colour: “The soft linens have a dreamy feel, ac­cen­tu­ated with a punch of colour from the cush­ions, chairs and tie-backs.”

The views are max­imised: “The sky­lights and win­dows are at just the right height to en­joy the view and see what the day has in store.”

Judges’ com­ments: “A so­phis­ti­cated, el­e­gant room. A lot is hap­pen­ing but it’s well zoned; the de­signer hasn’t put a foot wrong.”
