In the latest My Favourite Room series, I took a glimpse into the home of Kiwi Living and Sky Sport’s TV Host Erin Simpson. When she’s not filming, you’ll find Erin immersed in her other creative passion, her art – whether it’s her own print range or a number of collaborations in the works. Erin spoke with me on what makes it her favourite room and how the people around her play a large part in that.
+ What is your favourite room in your house?
Our lounge as it’s the place that inspires us!!
I live with two flatmates, who I regard as family, and together we have built a beautiful environment where we love to entertain and have people over to join our little family!!
+ What do you love about this space?
The round table! It’s the place where we gather for regular round table meetings and come up with the crazy new ideas for each of our careers and personal goals. From there it’s up to us to make them happen and as a team of odd balls I must say we have been pretty successful at doing so.
+ How would you describe the room in three words?
Always, contains, people
+ How long have you lived here?
I’ve owned this house for over 8 years now and it has been a stable for me and my family. I am a strong believer in the saying “build an arc and the people will come” so it is a place for everyone to base themselves when they need to be in Auckland.
I also have another place in Christchurch as alot of children’s television is made down there so I need to travel between the both and that house has 3 graffiti walls painted in the lounge so it’s even more amazing!
+ How do you spend your days?
I’m either writing, researching, filming, running my art business, eating, talking or laughing
Anything else is an added bonus or a conscious decision to put time into.
Obviously the word #filming is very vague as this can range to being up a ladder prepping a wall for top coats, interviewing boys in the rugby field or running amuck, making the most of my eternal youth haha.
