Tips on cre­at­ing en­dur­ing style

NZ House & Garden - - HOMES -

* Cre­ate a lay­ered ef­fect that will re­main in­ter­est­ing and in­trigu­ing over time.

* Look for fur­ni­ture that is sim­ple in de­sign with so­phis­ti­cated fin­ishes. * Source ac­ces­sories and ob­jet d’art that are dif­fer­ent and not seen ev­ery­where. * When buy­ing fur­ni­ture, less is more: make de­ci­sions on qual­ity rather than price. Ben Lewis of Tren­zseater

THIS PAGE The home’s mar­ble spine re­flects soft light fall­ing through the front en­try; a Polo but­toned ot­toman is po­si­tioned at the bot­tom of the stairs and a Bran­quinho agate chan­de­lier by Eich­holtz hangs from a glass ceil­ing; the glass balustrade was cus­tom-made in full length pieces.OP­PO­SITE An en­er­getic red fea­ture wall en­livens the front en­try, com­ple­mented by a Canape con­sole, Monaco ot­tomans, Miyaki mirror and an art­ful dis­play of orchids; on the right un­der the stairs is a chaise longue that was passed on to Mark from his grand­par­ents and given a new lease of life with char­coal and black striped up­hol­stery. >
