I walked along Jervois Rd every morning on my way to Ponsonby Intermediate as a kid. I knew every detail of each shop front that lined that stretch of road. I knew the store keepers, the daily specials at the fruit market and the new releases displayed in the windows of TransVideo.
The suburb is home to me. I still stroll its streets, although these days it’s on a Saturday morning listening to my Discover Weekly as I walk up to my favourite local, Dear Jervois, for my Hakanoa Lemon Honey Ginger. It was designed by David Lee, the original owner and I’ve crushed on the fit out since it opened. Inspired by the mix of colour, tropical patterns and brushed browns, I pulled a few Spring pieces from Zara, some frames from Bailey Nelson and shot a little pictorial as the sun went down.
