New features to inspire and surprise

New features to inspire and surprise

The only constant in life is change, particularly when it comes to New Zealand lifestyle. NZ House & Garden welcomes change and the injection of freshness and the element of surprise that comes with it, which is why the latest issue contains three stunning new features.

Architectural Icons is a new feature that finds glorious iconic buildings that have contributed to New Zealand society and then tells the interesting story within. Selwyn Church in Howick, Auckland, is the second oldest church in the country, built when Howick was first settled in the mid 1800s. Today it remains a place of worship, with a healthy-sized parish and a community committed to its preservation. This month we tell its story.

Some people have a style to envy and NZ House & Garden likes to celebrate those who have panache and embrace their individuality, which is why we have developed A Certain Style. Each month we’ll peek into the homes and wardrobes of the uber chic, starting with the general manager of the Royal New Zealand ballet, Amanda Skoog.

Not everyone has hours to spend cooking up a storm and creating a sumptuous feast, particularly mid-week, which is why NZ House & Garden is introducing a new culinary feature – Quick Gourmet. Here we shares ideas for delicious food prepared quick smart. This month’s focus is all things sweet. Recipes like Grilled Pineapple with White Chocolate Cream, and Amaretto Peaches with Ciabatta Toasts are great options for hosts in a hurry.

Of course, all the usual favourites are in the magazine too, including fabulous gardens from Coatesville to Christchurch, Peter Gordon and his family’s favourite recipes, and entertaining options for a mid-Winter Christmas.

The June issue of NZ House & Garden is on sale from Monday 21 May and retails for $8.90. Visit for more ideas and inspiration.
