BEA TAYLOR Fresh ideas and interesting new finds
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.
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.
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.
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.
