The homestead itself is over 100 years old and the renovation needed to be contemporary classic, referencing luxe but with an approachable feel and relaxing atmosphere. Mangapapa is a luxury hotel, being an old estate it had the grandeur and beauty, Jodie worked to bring the same elegance through with her design.
The result is an interior fitout that is sensitive to the integrity of the building. As such, many of the fabrics selected take their design cues from history, but offer a touch of modern refinement through colour, weave or pattern.
