House of the week: Matakana gallery

Art dominates the Matakana living room shared by Virginia Leonard, Oliver King and their children Coco (here with Claude the West Highland terrier) and Orlando; a large-scale abstract work by Virginia hangs at left (see it on the cover); above a wooden cabinet from The Vitrine hang portraits by Gavin Hurley (above the record player) and Kirsten Roberts, next to a large photographic work by Oliver; the dog sculpture on the hearth is by Barry Lett; the light shade, from May Time Marketing , hangs from an old horsehair and plaster ceiling rose.

This homeowner deliberately made builders walk through her house in muddy boots to achieve a rustic look.

Chunky recycled timber gives this barn-like home (with a 22-metre-long living room) its cosy character.
