Dael & I are really lucky to have met some awesome people in our Bibby + Brady job. This gorgeous, super-relaxed couple - Sarah and Roger, and beautiful baby Stella - have recently relocated to Mount Maunganui. Having moved all previously owned furniture to their holiday home, they were starting with a very blank canvas, and asked for our help with paint, fabric and furniture choices.
Mount Maunganui is one of my favourite places. With a permanent beachy, holiday vibe it seems the perfect fit for the young laid-back family. We wanted to reflect that and create a fun and welcoming, as well as functional home.
The walls were brightened up with a soft white, Resene Half Bianca, and new carpet was laid. Fresh blue and white roman blinds compliment the blue velvet sofa, and the old dining room light was replaced with a stunning brass pendant.
It wasn't in the budget to totally redo the kitchen, which was in pretty good knick. Having the cabinetry re-painted a sunshiny bright yellow gave it a new lease on life. More new blinds and some cute wall shelves were also added.
At the end of the kitchen an empty space was an ideal spot for a kitchen nook. Roger proved to be extremely handy and built the bench seating himself (the seat cushions are being upholstered as we speak). Replica Wishbone chairs in fun colours complete the setting.
It was fantastic to get to visit Sarah and Roger recently, and see how their home has transformed. All our work has been done via email and phone, so we're so impressed at how hard these guys have worked to turn our vision into a reality. If you have an interior space you'd like us to help you with, whether it's residential or commercial, we would love to hear from you.
