Today we share influential interior creatives who are creating their own dream spaces, while inspiring the world with their stunning images.


Be inspired by interior designer Erena Te Paa’s impeccable style and beautiful photography. She uses a minimal, sophisticated approach to her Hamilton home and finds modern ways of celebrating space. Japanese and Scandinavian design principles of simplicity and nature for a ‘Japandi’ style are prominent. Follow if you love curved interiors, negative space, and particularly, natural elements. A website is coming up and we cannot wait to see what she has in store!

Ron Goh is the proud resident and curator of a modern mid-century apartment. His visuals encapsulate city-central charisma and keep you entertained with trendy videos and ideas for your home. Lighting is an integral part of the interior appeal so we are spoilt for choice of lamps! Love what you see? It’s possible to book a stay and relax at the 1920’s converted loft, taking advantage of his stunning views through full-length windows.

In addition, by day he runs Mr. Homebody, an eclectic selection of vintage homewares that brings back past trends with modern style. The store includes European furniture, trending travertine stone tables ( ‘the new marble’), and obviously, his beautiful mid-century pieces.
