An Organised Life

Start the new year with a life more organised. We've got some inspiration and tips from our own home.

A few years ago a friend suggested a book by Marie Kondo 'The Art of Tidying' which was already a best seller. Recently she has appeared on Netflix and it seems like New Zealand has collectively decided to adopt the approach of a tidy life that "sparks joy". We've been re-inspired too, sorting and decorating with our own spaces.

Tomado Shelving by Adriaan Dekker is pictured here in black, perfect for our bathroom setting with the addition of a plant and vintage art glass.

We decided to use our hallway as a mini library and incorporated a vintage mid-century shelving unit. The shelf heights vary and we love using a range of artworks and objects to create character in our space.

Shop Now / Warm Nordic 'Repeat' Shelf

We love having easy access to our dining accessories. This tall rosewood cabinet is perfect as a multi functional storage and display space. It's an easy way to define this part of our home as a dining area, and less attractive but functional things can be stored in the cabinet.

Often sideboards are used in a lounge setting for AV equipment but we have found this taller piece is really functional for our office space. The space above is a simple way to present favourite artworks in a curated way that works so well with the stunning timber grain.

Alexander Calder: Radical Inventor at the NGV

The most impressive Calder work we've seen in our travels is in Chicago, "Flamingo" (1974). It's not traditionally attractive but it's definitely memorable and like great art, the more you find out about the artist and their work, the more it grows on you.
