Magazine Details

Each month, NZ House & Garden offers readers the chance to step inside a selection of the country's most beautiful homes and gardens, and meet the people who created them.

The people we interview are the lifeblood of the magazine, and we aim to tell real human stories about what makes them tick, what drives their special brand of creativity, what their homes mean to them. With a team of freelance writers and photographers from throughout the country, we work hard to find the best examples of every house style - classic, contemporary, country, art deco and so on - and to offer a rich variety of house features in every issue. The editorial mix also includes gardens, style pages, artist's profiles and an entertaining section filled with recipe ideas.

NZ House & Garden prides itself on quality journalism and photography, excellent design and high production standards, delivering a premium experience to readers every month. This is not a "how to" magazine: rather it is a suggestion box, a mustering of ideas to be pondered, adapted or simply enjoyed. It is a smorgasbord of possibilities from which the reader can select, at leisure, what suits them. It inspires rather than instructs. This is the timeless appeal of NZ House & Garden, the country's leading home title for more than a decade.

NZHG banner
"NZ House & Garden is about New Zealanders at home. It accompanies creative, clever, interesting people into their personal spaces, and talks to them about their lifestyle, and what their home means to them. The timeless appeal of the magazine lies in the rich mix of homes in every issue, the excellent photography and great human stories, and the magazine's premium production qualities which make it a pleasure to pick up and read through."
