Your Home and Garden features some of NZ’s most beautiful homes and spaces and it was contestants turn to try their hand at styling for a cover shot.
This year we got them to randomly choose a model’s name and that would them there ‘brief’ for the shoot. The models were superbly decked out in four of New Zealands leading fashion designers which also refected the brief. Dulux colours were also chosed to offset the ‘hero’ piece from each set.
From top to bottom of above images:
Jamie and Hayden | Modern Minimalist | Colour Dulux Okarito | Model wears Zambesi
Cat and Jeremy | Structured Organic | Colour Dulux Tauherenikau | Model (Lou) wears Kowtow
Sarah and Minanne | Retro Revival | Colour Dulux Clifford Bay | Model (Maddie) wears Twenty Seven Names
Brooke and Mitch | Dreamer |Colour Dulux Half Kumototo | Model (Maggie) wears Kate Sylvester
These teams certainly brought out there styling A-game and made it all very tough to decide the best image for the cover. I had to make my decision based on:
+ Best use of the brief
+ How the final image looks as a cover shot
+ Styling and composition
My top two were Jamie and Hayden and Cat and Jeremy. Both looked super duper as a cover but Jaime and Hayden nailed the brief 100%. When I judged this challenge I had no prior knowledge of any back story of the contestants or challenges won to date so it was niffy when I got to watch in TV land time knowing that eventually Jamie and Hayden get a win!
Jamie and Hayden’s final set was perfectly put together and I can’t wait to see it published and proud on newstands across New Zealand!
Good luck to all the teams with your houses and we will all be watching with everything crossed to see the auction results.
