There’s so much to think about when you undertake a new build or renovation project. These tips will serve as a great starting point for those about to start this adventure.
This client took on a labour of love when she purchased this grand old lady. The 1890's villa had weathered over time, and while some period features were still beautifully preserved, a major renovation was definitely in order. The home is now the perfect blend of heritage details and modern, fresh finishes.
This super busy family of five (and all the teenager's friends!) needed a major kitchen update. The brief: functional but still fabulous. The client was keen to experiment with colour, but still wanted a chic, classic finish. The result is the prefect blend of classic and contemporary - streamlined, chic and completely unique.
Planning a new kitchen? Take note! In our New Zealand homes, our kitchens are definitely the heart of the home. More than any other space in your home, our kitchens need to be functional as well as stylish - and that requires detailed planning. Whether you're building a new home or renovating your exisiting one, these steps will help you nail your dream kitchen.
This home is almost totally unrecognisable from the cobweb-clad beachside bach it was when our client first purchased it. The client was downsizing in scale, but didn’t want to compromise on style. Kirsten Ford Design completely reimagined the space to create a home as a true reflection of its owner: modern, stylish, well travelled.
