Director at Stockwell Design
Pauline Stockwell Design is a bespoke design company specializing in the design of kitchens, bathrooms and interiors.
What is your favourite colour?
I like to use colour sparingly as an accent combined with interesting neutrals and lots of texture and pattern.
What is your design aesthetic?
I love modern design but not too minimalist. I like clean lines but I do like a home to be comfortable and welcoming and to represent the personality of the home owner.
What is your favourite room in your home?
I love the living area in our Taupo home. Our open plan kitchen, dining and living area has been designed to be a great area for entertaining with an adjoining snug for relaxing.
Where do you find your design inspiration?
Anywhere! It could be as simple as the art in my clients home, to their homes architecture.
What is your prediction of the next design trend?
I think hard materials will continue to have a huge influence on design trends. They give schemes a sense of permanence and sophistication and mix well with accent or bright colours.
