Our Homes TODAY “We wanted it covered because it rains throughout the year. It can be raining, but we can leave the furniture out here.” It’s a favourite sitting room, coupled with a panoramic view to One Tree Hill and the Waitakere Ranges. Suha can also look at the view from the expansive central island in the kitchen, devoid of cooking appliances or a sink, instead doubling for preparation and informal dining. An awkward corner cupboard features a rotating shelf making pots and pans easily accessible, while a specially-designed deep drawer handily placed next to the gas cooking range holds herbs, spices and other condiments. But the engine room is the butler pantry where appliances, such as a microwave, toaster and fridge, and open shelving for food provisions are tucked away out of sight. Feelings of an Arabian desert tent are evoked in the master bedroom at the other end of the top foor with wafty organza curtains hung in front of, instead of behind, silky drapes, continuing the tea theme and counteracted with the deep tea shade of the carpet. The only furniture is the bed and a wall-hung television, while Suha opted for a built-in dressing table in the substantial dressing room off the bedroom. Just off the master bathroom, tucked in behind tidy doors, is a nifty laundry shute where clothes can be dropped to the ground foor laundry. The Alijiwaads had never been involved in a building project before and Suha says they received considerable assistance from the Jalcon team. “The people there have a good understanding, helping us with colour and design. We had some different ideas and they made it easy for us to implement.” comfortable: Muted tones with subtle accessories create a relaxing environment.
