This is a post from my “Photo Rescue” project where I’m rediscovering all my pictures from New Zealand. Read all posts about New Zealand here!
Our AirBnb in Raglan, New Zealand was too cute not to get its own post. I was enamored with every bit of it – the interior design, the views, the record player. This place had it all!
We decided to stay in Raglan almost by accident. We flew from Christchurch to Auckland with a plan to book a place in the city, but we changed our minds at the last second. Instead, we booked a place in Raglan – a small town by the ocean with great spots for surfing, kayaking, and enjoying the water.
We spent most of our time in this sun-filled room with a view of the bay….
The perfect spot for me to keep re-reading The Hobbit 🙂
I loved all the midcentury style furniture and the overall color scheme of this room. Plus, the light fixtures! Love the look of these and the wide light they cast at night.
Here, see the fireplace in the background with the mantle styling? Love how the colors there pick up on the colors of the seating in the foreground.
And then, this nook just off the kitchen was perfect for a morning coffee…
Let’s see a beauty shot of that floor. The color story, the intricate tile-inspired designs – I love all this, too!
And speaking of the kitchen, here is a peak at it. I love the juxtaposition of that yellow light with the aqua cabinet doors. Gives it some real pop, y’know?
And last but not least, the bedroom with this amazing dresser + mirror.
Raglan, New Zealand was a great place to stay as our central hub on the North Island. From here we were able to head out on day trips like Waitomo and Hobbiton. But my favorite part might have been this cozy home away from home!
