An Exclusive Tour of Auckland Interior Designer, Irene Crean's Home - Part One of Five


Recently I featured a post on Auckland interior designer, Irene Crean's French Provincal style, Epsom house. So unique is her home, it has featured in several publications and was previously part of the 2014 NZ House & Garden tours. In my prior post I could only publish a few images, however, I am excited to say I was recently invited to spend a morning photographing Irene's home for the blog.

Keen to put their paints to the test I came up with a makeover for an old Rimu trunk.

Autumn or spring are both good excuses for making a few changes around the home and drawing ideas from inspiring interiors such as this New England style beauty, is a good place to start.

A Kaleidoscope of Easter Egg Inspiration

Above, make this pretty cake and surprise family and friends - Instructions over at The Cake Blog

In NZ it is a long Easter weekend and even though it is the tail end of summer, it is still beautiful weather and most people will be heading to the beach. I am not doing anything special but for Easter I may have a go at making the truffle eggs I discovered. With all the Easter inspiration I found, it is possible to make your own chocolate eggs, ice some ombre cookies, make some cute family photo eggs and lots more...
