Summer holidays are here at last

21 Dec, 2020

After a very strange year, summer has arrived to lift our spirits. We are looking forward to enjoying life at a slower pace with stretched out sunny days to enjoy with family and friends. We asked some of our team what their holiday plans are for the summer break.

See our team's Summer reading list

Paula Wallace, Design Director

I’ll be spending my summer holiday… sailing in the hopefully sunny North, catching up with family and friends.

I’ll be reading / watching / doing... fishing and sailing, and some reading of new inspiring biographies.

I’ll be eating / drinking... probably too much, hopefully something bubbly with fresh fish.

The best thing about summer is... everything!

Donna, Warehouse Manager

I’ll be spending my summer holiday... at our beach house in Mangawhai Heads.

I’ll be reading / watching / doing... swimming, going for walks on the beach and bush walks, I love doing the Mangawhai cliff walk.

I’ll be eating / drinking... leftover Christmas ham, lots of summer salads and chocolate.

The best thing about summer is... eating dinner outside every night and sitting around the fire chatting with family and friends.

Vicky, Merchandise Manager

I’ll be spending my summer holiday... with my family & friends at the bach, on the beach in the sun, with a gin not too far away.

I’ll be reading / watching / doing... eat, swim, eat, drink, sleep and repeat.

I’ll be eating / drinking... lots of summer fruits, seafood, Xmas ham, cheese platters and a cocktail of delicious beverages – too many to name.

The best thing about summer is... I don’t have to do my hair or wear shoes.

Amy, Textile Designer

I’ll be spending my summer holiday... painting and renovating our new house getting it ready for the kitchen installation in January! We are also getting away for a week camping up the top of the Coromandel.

I’ll be reading / watching / doing... painting and pulling up carpet! These days my reading mainly consists of reading ‘Ella & Olivia’ books to my two girls.

I’ll be eating / drinking... hopefully some yummy seafood and a spot of rosé.

The best thing about summer is... family, camping and long beach days.

Michelle, Takapuna Store Manager

I’ll be spending my summer holiday... at Matauri Bay on the beach with my family, a cocktail and a good book.

I’ll be reading / watching / doing... I will be making the most of the fresh air, swimming in the ocean, playing games and going fishing.

I’ll be eating / drinking... all the naughty stuff along with bubbles, salads and juicy summer fruits.

The best thing about summer is... having time to rest, recharge and make the most of the outdoors.
