Kiwis Living In New York

Kiwis Gus McKay and Miranda Dempster share an apartment in Greenwich village.

Here is the New York apartment belonging to kiwis Miranda Demspter, an art director and her partner, tailor Gus McKay. This home made an appearance in HOME New Zealand magazine last month and has been featured in this week's NY Times.
The area of this rental apartment is 56 square metres - and Dempster talks of being ruthless while furnishing the small spaces carefully. Read the rest of the article here.

The secret to living in a small space? Being ruthless about unneccessary furniture.



The letters on the mantlepiece came from an old sign for a neighbourhood dry cleaning business.



Photograph by Stephen Shore hangs above the mantlepiece.







The print by Kate Small, an NZ artist, hangs in the dining area.



The fish poster is a true touch of kiwiana - these are often found in our fish and chips shops.



The bedroom has a prime view of the park.
