NZ House & Garden - - TALKBACK -

As a mul­ti­me­dia artist I’m of­ten on the look­out for colour­ful bits and pieces, in­clud­ing tiles. For the past cou­ple of years the tile shops have dis­ap­pointed greatly; a five-minute browse tells me they haven’t yet moved on from their pal­ette of grey/ black/white/cream and beige. Sadly that’s how I found your Au­gust is­sue too. Bland. All those ex­pen­sive and mono­toned ren­o­va­tions, with their ubiq­ui­tous seethrough or shell-shaped chairs, Eames birds, pen­dant/in­dus­trial lights and fake deer heads, gave me a five-minute read this month. Thank good­ness for the orig­i­nal­ity and colour of Robyn Gib­son’s Flow­ers and TV art­work on page 161. Any chance of get­ting a look in­side her home? June Peka, Christchurch
