Naturally talented and multi-skilled, Sean and Marianne Falconer have poured endless energy into the renovations of their Titirangi home. Starting a family had long been a dream, so it was with obvious delight that they finally had need to create a baby’s bedroom, downing tools just in time for newborn cuddles. Old jib was ripped out and the room was thoroughly insulated, re-jibbed, and then painted in Resene White Pointer. When most couples would be researching where to purchase their first baby’s cot, Sean was busy studying safety regulations for heights and gaps so he could handcraft a cot for his daughter, Frankie, out of New Zealand plywood – blonded on the outside and painted inside with Resene Mint Tulip. Cots he had seen on the market inspired the design, but the end result is unique and stunning.
