Orange is the new black in the ultimate Aussie lad pad
12 June 2018
Masculine style doesn’t have to mean dark colours and hard edges. Adding splashes of bright colours, ambient lighting and soft textures creates a vibrant, fun space.
Jess & Jared’s Entry
What they did: By highlighting the blues and browns in the feature picture with complementary timbers and wall colours, this couple created an eclectic, yet immediately inviting entry.
Get the look: Choose statement lighting such as our Ziami pendant to mirror a distinctive feature such as a timber wall.
Leigh & Kristie’s Kitchen
What they did: Soft greys, timber and a very subtle pop of colour created this smart, sophisticated kitchen.
Get the look: Contrast a sleek, shiny finish with more raw, matte colours such as our Croft pendants.
Jess & Jared’s Dining Room
What they did: While the dining area was quite small, choosing bold lighting helped define and separate the space from the lounge room.
Get the look: Create an intimate feel in a large space with a cluster of our Lunar pendants.
Toad & Mandy’s Study
What they did: Toad & Mandy opted for simple furnishings and bold block colours to make the most of this tiny space.
Get the look: Combine our Scope swing arm wall brackets with our unique Ziami pendant for designer form-meets-function style.
Kim & Michelle’s Bedroom
What they did: Opting for designer restraint, Kim & Michelle used softly layered textures and pops of orange to relax the masculine theme.
Get the look: Use adjustable wall lighting such as our Scope swing arm wall brackets as bedside lights to allow for a clutter-free bedside.
Mel & David’s lounge
What they did: Mel & David used a strikingly simple combination of white, black and blue to create a cosy corner.
Get the look: In busy zones, keep the lighting soft and simple with our LEDLux Miles wall brackets.
Kiara & David’s WIR
What they did: This couple wowed the judges by installing a mirrored ceiling, which made this small space feel much larger.
Get the look: Choose a close to ceiling pendant such as our Aksel 6 light pendant to add drama and high-end style in rooms with low ceilings.
