the beautiful world of curio noir

In the current issue of Homestyle, I got to speak with the lovely Tiffany Jeans from Curio Noir.  She opened her incredibly restful, stunning home to photographer (and sometimes collaborator) Evie MacKay and she got to take some amazing shots. Included in this post are some of the shots that didn’t make it in to the magazine simply because of space.

Tiffany and her husband Andrew raise their three children in this beautiful space in Arch Hill Auckland. They have done some work to make it move in ready, which is basically painting every surface RESENE White, including the floors done is a wonderful high gloss. They live a simple curated life, with the minimum of fuss, surrounded by objects that are dear to them. They are in no hurry to do anything other than enjoy their space, especially the large rambling garden. They have plans to extend the house in the future, but will just enjoy what they have now. If you want to know more about Curio Noir, go check out their beautiful new website here.
