Lakeside love

PG-Moodboard-lakeside-kids.jpg

Kuratau is a quiet spot, on the edge of Lake Taupo, in Central North Island of New Zealand. We are lucky that my partners generation before us chose to build a bach here. It takes roughly four hours to drive from where we live, so time spent at Kuratau is special. We leave work behind and focus on getting out on that deep, deep, blue water. For five brief days over our New Year break, time slowed down. This moodboard is inspired by the colours surrounding us during our lakeside summer and the early evening light so unique to our country. And, because time here is so much more fun with the kids around, I've chosen to create a kids bedroom.

If this look inspires you too, head over to our Pinterest board and save our images for a rainy day.

My lakeside inspired colour palette uses Resene Fashion Colours - 18.

It's about the deep blue lake, bitter green grass and chalky grey pumice.
