Make your interior an experience for all the senses with touchable natural materials. In association with Fisher & Paykel. Sensory perceptions On our journey to designing a home that’s good for us, reflecting our style while providing comfort, we’re always aiming to devise an interior scheme that satisfies more of our senses than simply sight. Do you ever stop to think about how you want your home to feel — physically and emotionally? It’s a step you don’t want to skip.

Step inside her small-scale slice of paradise, redecorated without compromise in striking black and white. Founder of creative ideas agency Tradecraft, Morven McAuley, says her Auckland home allows her complete freedom of expression. In a world in which so many people struggle to buy a house, she’s acutely aware that having one to make her own is a real privilege, and figures that if she stays content in her little spot, she’s also leaving another house free out there for someone else to make theirs.  So Morven, how did you find your slice of urban paradise?

The Coromandel Peninsula artist crafts all kinds of custom pieces on beautiful timber looms. Upping sticks with her family from Auckland to Tairua in 2016 got visual artist Kathryn Tsui thinking about learning to weave as an extension of her creative practice. She bought a basic loom off Trade Me to learn with — and she was away. So, Kathryn, what do you produce? My practice oscillates between weaving custom pieces — predominately shawls and handwoven tableware — and works for exhibition; I recently produced a new series of tableware for Ā Mua: New Lineages of Making, an exhibition
