2015 Your Home & Garden / Resene Colour Home Awards finalist Kelly Gammie talks to us about New Zealand current and evolving design trends. Kelly who has lived in Italy for ten years works as design manager at Eucalyptus Design & Interiors from Auckland, New Zealand where she promotes the use of environmentally friendly products in her designs.
Hence, she sees current designs in New Zealand influenced by nature, colors, greens and natural materials such as timber. This is similar to trends from Europe, however, the designs in New Zealand also feature more and more dark colors and copper.
When asked about the difference to Australian designs, she mentioned that New Zealand designs are less bold and loud and sport a more modern angular look.
