THE HOME

Modern home, Sandringham – Auckland, Gregor & Vanessa Leishman, family of five.

THE BRIEF

Revamp the property, creating a more functional and inspiring property to live in.

WHAT WE DID

We customized a large L-shaped couch and ottoman for family lounging while adding a punch of colour with a few occasional chairs. Custom cabinetry was designed to fit around the fireplace, which created more storage.

The clients were pleased with this work, so we continued throughout the rest of the home. We revamped the bathroom by replacing the bath, vanity, and mirror to make it fun and functional for their three small children. In the laundry we built new cabinetry and created storage to house a dryer that had previously been living on a bench. The addition of a gorgeous splash back and colour scheme turned a dull space into a little slice of luxury.

We turned the master bedroom into a lux retreat with the clever use of stunning wallpaper behind the bedhead alongside full-length drapes to warm and soften the space.

The en suite received a full makeover. We stripped everything back and started again, giving it a second life with bespoke cabinetry, set in mirrors and beautiful tiling that connected the space to the new colour scheme in the master bedroom. Erina Emery gave the house a final big dose of personality with the addition of a red dalmatian spot wallpaper, which runs the entire length of their ten-metre hallway, giving them an entrance with wow factor.

The result was a fun and effortlessly elegant home with timeless style. It’s a home that meets the demands of a busy professional family who absolutely love it.
