Go­ing green

From her home in the foothills of the Waitāk­eres, artist Jen Siev­ers has been no­ticed by Aus­tralian com­pany Green­house In­te­ri­ors. Priced from around $520, her ex­clu­sive new col­lec­tion is avail­able at green­hou­se­in­te­ri­ors. com.au.

STORY TIME

With a bit of imag­i­na­tion, the graph­ics on this Pony Rider Day Walker cush­ion cover will tell a story of a long me­an­der over a moun­tain and a slow walk through a river com­pleted by a ses­sion un­der the stars. Pick it up for about $105 at ponyrider.com.au.

Hats off

Melbourne-based Kiwi de­signer Luke Mills has a re­fined, sleek style. His pen­dant light range, Hat, in­cor­po­rates his love of nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als, bold colours and clean lines. The base comes in two sizes and two tones, black or white; the top in ter­ra­cotta or a glazed or coloured ce­ramic. See more light­ing, as well as chairs, stools, ta­bles and benches, at lukemills.co.

Plant per­fect

Ever stud­ied the colour wheel? It’s not top of every­one’s to-do list, but if you do hap­pen to glance at it, you’ll see green and red are on op­po­site sides – a vi­brant pair­ing called com­ple­men­tary colours. This means red (or a sul­try ma­roon like this planter) is the ideal shade to make your in­door plants re­ally pop. Avail­able at Capri­cho, $85 for small, $389 for large, capri­cho.co.nz.
