Overlooking the ever-changing Manukau harbour, this stunning renovation by Creative Arch and Yellowfox designer Peta Davy is a labour of love for a very dedicated professional couple.

This was not their first renovation, and they jumped in head first. Their old circa 1980’s home is barely recognisable now; she has become a modern haven of beauty and class.The kitchen shows off stunning grainy white and dense black Consentino Dekton benchtops, and the scullery can be fully opened up to the kitchen for an extra accessible work space.

The master ensuite breathes in the picturesque views over the harbour while the palette plays with textured tiles by the Tile Warehouse and timeless marble by Italian Stone. All the bathroom fittings, by Robertson Agencies, have a modern yet classical feel. The clients wanted a fireplace wall that sat back quietly, while showcasing some of their exquisite pottery collection. The chocolate tones of the Bestwood Veneer paired with the honed granite, work harmoniusly together in this beautifully crafted bespoke piece of furniture.

This home plays as both a gallery to show off a collection of incredible art & furniture pieces, and a cliff edge sanctuary for a busy couple to retreat to at the end of the working day, shared by their two cats – Macy & Boris!
