About the Authors

Larnie Nicolson

Raised in the Waikato by a large farming family, Auckland-based freelance photographer Larnie Nicolson always had a love of art, initially leading her to study graphic design. After completing her studies, she appeased a classic Kiwi interest in the rest of the world by spending five years working and travelling throughout Europe. Never without her camera, Larnie honed an innate skill for capturing people and spaces. What started as a hobby soon developed into a career when she returned home in 2001 to complete a photography degree. This, combined with a strong design aesthetic and stylistic strengths in composition and detail, led Larnie to focus on architecture and interiors. Her photography career has taken her to London, Sydney and New York shooting on assignment. Today, Larnie shoots for leading New Zealand and international publications and creative agencies. She is active in the photography industry, mentoring young photographers and serving as the AIPA vice president for two years.

LeeAnn Yare

Stylist, interior designer, writer, presenter and retail store owner, LeeAnn Yare is passionate about design. Well known for her individual sense of style, original interpretation of trends, and wholly practical and fearless 'no rules' approach, LeeAnn is a regular contributor to interior magazines both in New Zealand and around the globe, and co-author of New Zealand Interior Style.

A guest interior designer and judge on TV shows such as Trading Houses, Mitre 10 Dream Home and TV One's Good Morning, Lee Ann does styling and fit-outs for commercial and advertising clients, and has her own retail store Collected, a veritable treasure trove of her favourite interior things.

Married to Glen and mother to sons Tyler and Dylan, Lee Ann's own colour-filled home is a riot of colour, shapes and objects which have been lovingly curated over the years. An international pilot to boot, LeeAnn is inspired by travel and the people and places she visits.
