Tucked away in Hawkes Bay, as owner Sonya describes it – ‘is a work in progress’. Sounds great, a beautiful old 1910 Villa, complete with timber floors and ceilings, rose & thistle stained glass (over 100 years old) and tons of personality.
She laughs when she says, “we got both rooms renovated so far. Yip, only renovated two haha”.
We both have a good chuckle about this because both of us bought ‘doer uppers’ and have kids. What were we thinking?
“Both rooms have a piece of The Inside in them,” she says kindly. She is referring to the Daiquari wallpaper in her lounge. In fact Sonya was the very first person to buy it in New Zealand. She also bought our cute Pink Floral Cats wall decals for her daughters room. The great thing about decals is you can arrange them in any fashion you please. I like the way Sonya has made on of the cats stretch up to the light switch.
Also of note is the Twinkle Toes fabric from Harlequin and the beautiful art work above the fireplace is by Rakai Karaitiana a local screenprinter.
Great taste Sonya, cant wait until you do the rest of your house!
