A heritage Ponsonby home renovated by owner Olivia Moon of Nodi Rugs and architect Barbara Webster

Creating spaces with feeling is something Olivia Moon is passionate about, and combining old and new is her go-to tool for making a house feel like home.

 “I love pieces that have already lived for 100 years and will continue for another 100; great design will last that long.”

Muted earth tones come together here in texturally rich palette of paint, plaster, marble, linen, jute and wool. “We didn’t want this to be a whitewashed house - our aim was to strike a balance between making it clean, elegant and modern without being sterile”
