Ornament is a homewares styling studio in Auckland. We work closely with local and international artisans and furniture makers to bring character and beauty to any space.
The store is a popular hotspot for interior designers and architects alike looking for statement pieces to complete a project but also offers fabulous gifting and those utilitarian pieces you use in a home that make your day to day living a more stylish space. The online store and interior styling services operate from the Studio in Northcote Point where there is also a viewing room for some larger pieces which don’t fit in the cute corner store, we also have an extensive range of rugs for viewing here.
Owner Ginamarie Riley has a background across many creative disciplines which she pulls on she says more regularly than ever imagined – including classical ballet, fashion design, graphic design, interior design and home renovations. She's completed six full home renovations of her own and has been consulting clients on their own projects for three years.
A busy hands-on creative mum of two young boys, Gina understands the importance of a welcoming family home, practical storage and creating different zones to fit the needs of a modern family.
As the daughter of restaurateurs growing up, she loves to cook with her kids, she grew up cooking from a young age. Follow her JOURNAL of easy go-to dishes based on her relaxed 'no recipe' concept using simple ratios – where you can swap out certain ingredients to create different versions of the same meal. Recently she has been re-making some old classic recipes as good bases to teach her boys some simple easy to remember dishes they eventually will be able to make on their own.
Gina loves working closely with people to add personality, character and natural style to their own environments. She also helps business clients to incorporate their brand character/colours and/or warmth into a stark workspace so it's inviting for their customers and a stylish cultured environment for staff to feel valued in. Her understanding of brand and identity also assists hugely here from her graphic design experience in creating brands.
