GEORGIA AND SHAYDEN’S CHRISTCHURCH VILLA PROJECT

Georgia and Shayden Whipps from home and lifestyle blog Moochstyle are leading the pack when it comes to New Zealand first time home buyers getting stuck into full scale interior renovations. Based in Christchurch, they’ve spent the past three years upgrading their 1910 villa. From upcycling impressive TradeMe furniture finds to restoring period features, this house-proud couple aren’t afraid to spend their weekends on their characterful home.

Soon into their renovations Georgia and Shayden realised they needed to pull out the previous owner’s laminate and transform their living area and bedrooms into cosy, warm spaces – especially with Christchurch’s chilly winters looming. Installing Miro carpet in ‘Fog Grey’ in this part of the house was also instrumental in creating a sense of cohesion in their home. Each space has its own theme and sense of personality whilst the carpet brings everything together. The ‘Fog Grey’ teams beautifully with the dark grey walls, oak accents and basket wall feature in the guest bedroom as much as it does with the deep, slightly murky blue green of the feature wall in the master bedroom. With superior stain resistance and durable wear, Miro carpet will add the perfect touch of luxe whilst withstanding busy day-to-day life. Georgia and Shayden teamed their carpet with Sleepyhead 11mm 130kg underlay to ensure fantastic thermal insulation.

In the kitchen-dining space, Georgia and Shayden have perfectly paired a modern fit out amidst the more heritage features of their home. Their Quick-Step Impressive laminate flooring in ‘Soft Oak Medium’ is complemented by the reclaimed wood shelving adjacent to the window and allows for the black hardware and furnishings to really stand out. Quick-Step is one of the most water resistant laminates in the world due to its ‘HydroSeal’ coating allowing water to form droplets on the floors surface which can then be simply wiped off. This means it’s a great option for any kitchen, bathroom or laundry.
