Resort Life

Fashion designer Caroline Sills has spent a long time renovating her Waiheke Island property into the light and bright dream home it now is. An open plan with views out to Owhanake Bay, combined with the layering of fresh whites, an abundance of glass and a hint of metal creates the ultimate in relaxed living. Carpets, books, tables and chairs collected on global adventures personalise the spacious, sun-drenched rooms, while leafy green indoor plants add a touch of colour.
