Step Inside a New Zealand-Based Fashion Designer's Bohemian Home Studio

Lauren Powell

L.A.-born, N.Z.-based fashion designer Arielle Mermin’s home and studio is where bohemian meets eclectic with a hint of retro—exactly how you could describe Mermin’s collections from her eponymous label. The Californian native, who grew up in an eccentric Bohemian house north of San Francisco, is an avid weaver, artist, vintage collector, and surf enthusiast, which comes as no surprise after a tour through her charming, yet modest home. Located in Okato, a small quiet township on New Zealand’s north island, the 1960s home Mermin shares with her husband, Josh, and dog, Buddy, combines the laid-back style of L.A., nostalgic essence of San Francisco, and refined European style from her worldly travels. Scroll on to take a tour of her dreamy, relaxed abode.
