Alan Pye Cottage at Huka Lodge, New Zealand..simply heaven

I have spoken of my love, inspiration & passion for New Zealand's divine landscape & natural beauty, & for how it is so brilliantly incorporated into the interiors of so much of its is another spectactular example.
The magnificient Alan Pye Cottage is the latest addition to the divine Huka Lodge Resort near Lake Taupo in New Zealand's North Island. The interior fit out is by their renowned & fabulously talented Auckland interior designer Virginia Fisher (you may recall I posted images of the divine Eichardts Boutique Hotel in Queenstown), who has again, brought together her signature style to create this very prestigious fitout. The interior is a perfect reflection of the lush colour palette of Lake Taupo, the surrounding pine tree forest & the natural lights of the landscape, against the richness of texture, materials, fittings & furnishings of the design, to create an indulgently spacious yet extremely welcoming & envious resort destination. This is definitely on my 'wish list'...Just divine.


  1. I haven't been to NZ yet, but it is on my list. I have seen some lovely NZ homes in magazines, and in fact Millie at the Laurel Hedge features a wonderful NZ Italian style villa - have you seen it yet?

  2. No I haven't seen that feature on Millie's site, but it's now on my to do list! Thanks Catherine, and yes, you must go to NZ, just spectacular. The way they incorporate their natural materials into their interiors and architecture is just beautiful. Have a great weekend! CJ

  4. I just came across your blog. Isn't this place gorgeous? And nice to hear your lovely comments about NZ.
    We often venture overseas instead of enjoying what's right under our noses... but I have a soft spot for lots of Australia too!
