Soulful

Hastings couple Adam and Nicola Mossman have a less is more approach. The result: a thriving brand whose ethos remains simple – local, natural and restorative.

Trinity Hill

Infamous for its Syrah, Trinity Hill Estate is a local – and international – favourite but it’s a new vintage that’s had people talking of late.

The age of the aperitif

Hawke’s Bay locals Kate Galloway and David Ramonteu are known for their certified organic artisan spirits and liqueurs. However, their latest offering promises a special indulgence.

Destination Hastings

From its Art Deco heritage to its working class roots, and an ever-evolving arts scene, there’s layer upon layer to discover in this small city with a big soul.

Art on tour

The summer months at Te Whare Toi o Heretaunga Hastings City Art Gallery promise a spectacular array of exhibitions – traversing the glaciers of Te Waipounamu, to clay, resin, oozing glazes, and shifting tides.

A visceral presence

Ben Pearce’s latest works exist at the intersection of fragile beauty and the confidence of brutalism. His pieces deliver both an arresting clarity and an intangible ambiguity.

Shifting hues

On the shores of one of Coromandel’s most well-known beaches, the coastal hues have a distinctive intensity. This home echoes those in its exterior materiality.

The taste of summer

In celebration of summer, HOME and 1800 Tequila came together to create four irresistible cocktails – a refreshing take on classic tequila recipes.

A timeless allure

This beautiful light-filled store in a Spanish Mission loft in Hawke’s Bay is an experience; a space of inspiration.

Elemental

Wedged between bush and sea, this Coromandel home is devised as a place of quiet; a place to bunker down, a place to escape to – and a place from which to enjoy the outdoors.

Taking the plunge

During a mountain bike ride about ten years ago, two mates got chatting. The result is a fresh – and entirely Kiwi – take on the hot tub.

The great escape

Arguably, there’s nowhere that says ‘Kiwi Summer’ better than the Coromandel Peninsula. We spoke to Bev Calder of Bayleys about the region and its hidden gems.

The tones of nature

For the owners of this Coromandel home, it was an interest in the older baches still dotted around the neighbourhood that provided the basis for their brief.

Inspirational architecture

Te Kāhui Whaihanga New Zealand Institute of Architects celebrated the best of the best recently, with its annual awards. We look at the residential winners.

The art of home time

We pair some of our favourites pieces from Bauhaus with artworks from Parnell Gallery to exemplify the shifting seasons.
