Sunny, inviting Waiheke home with interiors by Yellowfox


The best design work often looks effortless – but reality is it takes careful planning to achieve.

Detailing is the key to this light-filled home on Waiheke Island. The builder and the designer, Teri Donnelly of Yellowfox, have used materials that are both contrasting and complementary to create a welcoming ambience indoors and out.

"Timber finishes run along side black steel and crisp white to set off a summer home that lends itself to ‘fun in the sun'," says Donnelly.

The durable kitchen, in lacquer and veneer, features a slender stone benchtop which offers a feminine line to the overall masculine colour palette. The bathrooms are awash with light.
