New Zealand House

This 1970’s NZ house has beautiful views of the Martinborough, NZ wine region but inside this house was a mix of old tartan curtains, small rooms, and old carpet. I painted the interiors white and added drama in the formal living room and media room through wallpaper and bold color. The original wood floors throughout the house were in great shape so I stained them a darker stain. I removed the carpet in the formal living and polished the underlying concrete. The bathroom originally had a toilet, shower, and basin broken up into three small rooms. I gutted the three rooms to make one big bathroom. I added a walk in shower and a custom sink that mimics a cow trough to suit the surrounding countryside and added a bath with a big window to soak up the view. There is a small cottage attached that I painted in dark forest green and added a shiplap feature wall to make it feel cozy. There was not a big budget to redo the floors so I added ply that I painted in a whitewash finish and then cut lines to make it feel like beautiful wide wood flooring. I then added single beds with blush pink linen duvets for the ultimate sleep out!
