Littel House

A favourite from the current issue of HOME NZ magazine (Dec/Jan 2013) is this crazy cottage in Napier called Littel House (no typo). Photography by Patrick Reynolds.

Hit the jack(pot)

Our talented creative director schooled us all at a recent lawn bowls competition and won a stay at the hottest new accomodation on Waiheke Island, The Oyster Inn. Photography by Patrick Reynolds, more pics in the current issue of HOME (Dec/Jan 2013).

Hot house

We're working on the upcoming issue of HOME and we can't get enough of this NY house belonging to artist Anthony Goicolea. Photography by Emily Andrews. The Feb/Mar 2013 issue of HOME is in stores early Feb.

Pin-up

Illustrations of expressionless pin-up girls by German artist Aisha Franz. Nice.

The factory

This apartment was one of our fave features from HOME NZ magazine in 2012. An industrial factory turned apartment in London by NZ architect William Tozer. Love the original concrete ceiling and pillars mixed with the wooden floors and walls. Photography by Emily Andrews.

Reading Room 5

The fifth issue of Reading Room was published this year for the Auckland Art Gallery, featuring a striking image on the cover of men browsing through a bombed London library during WW2. Some people will do anything for a good book.

Scaled down

Love these models by Christchurch artist/craftsman Richard Gardiner. Lately he's been making scaled down versions of buildings and homes that were ruined in the earthquake. This model is the Lyttelton Police station that was severely damaged in the earthquake.

Radiohead

The second November gig was everyone's favourite band, Radiohead. Wow. What a show. First time we'd all seen them and we were blown away. Killer lighting show, totally made up for not getting a good view of the band due to being vertically challenged.

Studio within a studio

Yay, we finally have our photography studio set up in the studio. Lots of food photography going on which means leftovers, yum!

Black Keys

Lots of gigs on in November and this was the first. Black Keys at Vector Arena, just a hop skip and jump away from the studio. Lighting was fantastic - this was our favourite bit right at the end.

Housewine

This home winemaking kit from Rotterdam-based designer Sabine Marcelis is beautifully crafted and designed. We love the storage drawer of custom made tools in custom made spaces. Thanks to Lee Gibson, reporting for HOME New Zealand, for spotting it at Milan.

Bunny mug

Karen Walker has a homewear line coming out later this year and we want these cups from the range.

88.5° ARC x 8

We were invited to check out the new Bernar Venet sculpture at Gibbs Farm. The vertical orientation of the eight curved steel columns contrast with the broad horizontal planes of land and sea below the sculpture. They also capture the distinctive Kaipara light; as Venet says of his work, “I am thinking about the sunrises and sunsets, and the golden light that steeps the Corten steel in red and brown hints.” Arch took this shot that gives you a sense of how massive the work is - they are not miniature people!

Master class

In association with PQ Blackwell we designed this book for Oprah featuring photographs and interviews with some special VIPs - Simon Cowell, Condolezza Rice, Lorne Michaels, Maya Angelou, Jay-Z, Diane Sawyer and Ms Winfrey herself .

It’s ART!

Here we are making ART for the term 3 Artstation brochure cover.

Music inspires art

Arch has recently donned the design director cap at Shine and the Beck's Music Inspires Art campaign is a recent project to come out of that. Local artists took inspiration from local musicians to create some spiffing limited edition labels. Artists include Andrew McLeod, Gavin Hurley and Rainbowmonkey. Get a 12-pack now while they're still around.

à la Lockhart

Exceptional stylist and friend of Inhouse, Katie Lockhart curated these beautiful still-lifes which are featured in the Dec/Jan 2012 edition of HOME magazine. Photography props to Darryl Ward. If you're interested in eyeing up good-looking and quality products, head over to Katie's online homewares and design store everyday-needs.com.

We heart foil

Print processes are what we're about here at Inhouse and we use them as often as possible even for small runs with small budgets. This invite was printed inexpensively on a digital machine and with the addition of a bit of silver foil, it looks a million bucks.

MM Collection, mmmmm

We love love love the lastest collection from MM Collection aka Emma Hayes. This silk throw is from the River Print series. Check out the rest of the collection here.

Finn/Crane

A sample of one of the ads we've been putting out for Crane Brothers. This one in Pilot magazine. A simple ad feels so much more refined and sophisticated. Just like Crane Brothers suits really. Killer website by Sons & Co - crane-brothers.com

Eat Me

A new title from viction:ary, Eat Me is a yummy look at graphic design and packaging in food items. The physical book is super cool, exposed spine, all uncoated with two sections printed on brown paper for a lovely striped effect on all four sides. The cover makes me dream of a white chocolate waffle cone, mmmmm. And as a bonus, Inhouse is featured within it's pages.

Get it here.

HOME movie

As a pre-launch to our first re-designed issue of HOME New Zealand magazine, we made a behind-the-scenes video of the design in process.

Cosmo, take 01

A new friend has arrived in the studio.

Promised Gift
