While radio announcer Clint Roberts is well known for his voice, this time it’s his hands that he’s putting to work as he tackles a home renovation. And to kick the transformation off, he’s using Resene wallpaper to update his guest bathroom.
The top-rated ZM afternoon host lives with wife Lucy and their two young daughters, Maggie and Tui, in an architecturally-designed 1970s pole house in Auckland’s Titirangi.
“It’s spread over three levels with crazy angles and big round windows,” sys Clint. “It overlooks Manukau Harbour and is surrounded by native trees and birds. The bones of the house are perfect, but the interior could do with a refresh.”
There were three things that motivated the couple to make the move west: location, space and style. “We previously renovated a smaller art deco house to exactly how we wanted it to be, but that was before we had kids!” says Clint. “We very quickly ran out of space and needed some room to spread out. Moving to Titirangi meant we were closer to family, and we were able to afford a larger home than if we had moved closer to the city.”
While the kids are having a great time tearing around their new, bigger house, the adults are keen to get cracking on a transformation and have partnered with MasterStroke by Resene to do so. “We want to update our house room by room. We’re not in a position to undertake a major reno all at once, so our plan is to use paint and wallpaper to transform how our spaces feel.”
