ALLYSON GOFTON
Alison Mau visits the home of "Food In A Minute" presenter Allyson Gofton. Alison discovers that cooking is also an important part of Allyson's home life - and that her love affair with cuisine extends to an impressive collection of cookery related antiques.

MILLS HOUSE
Wellington architect John Mills has designed a strikingly modern home overlooking the harbour for his family. The colourful and unconventional house is built into a hillside so there isn't a back lawn - but the family have the harbour for their front yard, and the many decks of the four storey house provide plenty of outdoor living opportunities.

INTERIOR DESIGN - DINING ROOM NUMBER ONE
Sally Ridge and designer Michael Easton conjure up three different approaches to redecorating a dining room.

LOOK ONE
Michael's "hard and clean" look. The walls have been repainted black, white and grey; and the room is broken up with lines of concrete sculptures and lights made from film canisters.

LOOK TWO 
A quicker look which Michael says is softer and more ephemeral. The walls have been kept the same colours but now they're decorated with textured paper - and a leaf motif from the paper has been enlarged and featured in origami paper cut outs on the facing wall. A look that can be changed everyday.

LOOK THREE
A more relaxed look. The walls have been painted light blue and chocolate brown, and sheets of origami paper have been arranged in geometric patterns on them. The more subdued wall colours allow the colours in the collages to come out, and the room has been finished off with Chinese lanterns and bamboo plants
