I have been really looking forward to sharing this lovely home and cottage featured in the latest issue of Your Home and Garden magazine- especially for you overseas readers that don't get to read this fab magazine. I haven't shared a house from a magazine here before but this one was just so gorgeous I knew that a lot of you would enjoy it too.
The magazine features Deborah Tapper's home in Wellington and her cottage in Greytown. I could honestly move into either of them tomorrow and not change a thing!! She even has Orla Kiely cupboards in her kitchen like my dollshouse! And her cottage....french doors, pink roses, white painted floorboards....it is exactly my dream of a little cottage one day.
I emailed Deborah to see if she would mind if I shared her home on here and she was very happy to- she said most of her finds are op-shop finds- she must be one good op-shopper!!
Here are the pics (taken by YH&G photographer Nicola Edmonds).
Love the bright pink and emerald green accents
The clever lady herself (love the artworks in frames on the left too)
Deborah designed and made the cushions and also sometimes sells them- you can find them at Hope & Glory in Greytown and at Lisa Harmen's Workshop in Carterton
Her office nook in the alcove next to the fireplace-great idea don't you think!
♥ Orla Kiely wallpaper on kitchen cupboards ♥
Even the interior of a shelf has a cute wallpaper- love this striped yellow and pink one
Retro fab in her son's bedroom- check out the yellow typewriter!
Master bedroom with beautiful fan as a wall hanging
Deborah's 'Birdy' cottage in Greytown
That couch is so inviting...
Cutest. kitchen. ever.
Stunning wallpaper in one of the bedrooms- and more cute paper in the little shelf of the bedside table
♥french doors, bunting and roses ♥
And guess what- when I googled Deborah's name her cottage came up on a website for accomodation in Greytown...yes you can stay there! Wouldn't that be a nice way to spend a weekend...wish Greytown was a bit closer!!
There are plenty more colourful homes in this months issue as well if you can get your hands on a copy!
