Redecorating her 1950s house in Anderson’s Bay， Dunedin， required a lot of planning for Kathy Baughan. “For years I’ve cut up design magazines and pasted pictures in a journal to create my wish list and personal style，” she says.
Once readyaccent pillow case baby boudoir， Kathy， who works in childcare and as a sales consultant， gave the seaside home a “modern， beachy” makeover， with a fresh white and blue palette. The crisp white of Resene ‘Half Bianca’ is complemented by shutters in Resene ‘Opal’， a front door in Resene ‘Shadowy Blue’ and a patio in Resene ‘Traffic’， a charcoal grey.
Kathy’s friend Shelley Wright Chalmers， an interior designer， helped her to finalise colours and Frank Tainton did the painting. Kathy has lived here with children Isadora and Alasdair (pictured) and Annabelle for eight years.

The other day, we spotted natural fiber rugs on the floor of a Swedish farmhouse — they look like coir or jute — that seem to have been stenciled with a pattern. Brilliant, why didn’t we think of that?!!! The technique would allow you add simple geometric designs to inexpensive and durable rugs.?It might even be a way to give new life to stained or worned sisals (sisals ain’t cheap and show wear like crazy).
The e-commerce world is experiencing its greatest boom yet, and it’s been my major concern to communicate this with the fashion-conscious public.
When you are considering making a purchase from an online retailer, it’s best to look beyond the beauty of a website with its amazing designs and instead focus deeply on what it really offers. Here are some things customers should know before patronizing an online custom-made suit store.
Elvis Presley. Often imitated, never duplicated. There’s no denying that there was something truly special about him, from his hip-shakin’ music to his powerful presence on stage. And, who could forget his dashing good looks!
