Over the last few weeks, the teams have outdone themselves in the style stakes, delivering some of the most beautiful rooms we’ve ever seen. From contemporary Hamptons to breathtaking architectural spaces, the focus was on bringing luxurious living to rooms that are truly the heart of the home.

These tips will show you just how easy it is to recreate this level of luxury in your own home.


Josh & Luke’s Kitchen

How to get the look: While we’re used to seeing a lot of kitchens with pendants placed in a row over an island bench, clustering your pendants at different heights lets you create a stunning visual feature and adds more depth to a room.

When you’re lighting high ceilings, it’s important to choose downlights with a high wattage to ensure your entire space is well lit.

Kirsty & Jesse’s Kitchen 

How to get the look: Who doesn’t love a new take on Hamptons charm? Kirsty and Jesse added another layer of elegance and sophistication to Hamptons inspired design with rich navy blue playing against the traditional white and timber palette.

Look at the big picture when choosing design elements such as statement lighting. While our stunning alabaster Luella pendant appears strikingly simple (and works beautifully as functional task lighting over the island) its brass detailing picks up on the brass accents in the cabinetry and tapware and perfectly ties the whole look together.

Tanya & Vito’s Kitchen

Their lighting choice: Masson For Light custom Roman Pendant. Get the same look with our MFL By Masson Fleming pendant.

How to get the look: With arched windows, round skylights and a terrazzo bench, there’s a lot to love in Tanya and Vito’s kitchen. When you have so many architectural elements in one room, it’s important to tone down your colour palette in order to enhance rather than detract attention from the features you want to highlight. The same rationale applies to your choice of statement pendant: keep it simple, clean and pared-back to make a subtle impression.

Living & Dining 

Ronnie & Georgia’s Living & Dining

How to get the look: Your living spaces are where you really want to create a feeling of warmth and relaxation, which is exactly what the Hamptons look is all about. Ronnie and Georgia picked up on the key features of Hamptons styling with their textured white wall panelling and warm timber inspiring a cool, casual mood that invites you to put up your feet and relax. You can also use lighting to create distinct zones in a large open plan space; look for statement pieces such as our Luella pendant that looks just as stunning during the day as it does when it’s illuminated at night.

How to get the look: This is a great example of how to use lighting to give a room a cool, laidback Hamptons vibe. Rather than using just one statement light, when you cluster groups of pendants together at different heights, it adds depth and dimension without cluttering the space. Choose light, airy pendants in natural timber to keep the look relaxed and fun.

Mitch & Mark’s Living & Dining

Their cooling choice: Tahitian Fan

How to get the look: Mitch and Mark took the Hamptons design story to new heights, wowing everyone with their soaring white ceilings made from Gyprock’s Supaceil plasterboards and textured timber flooring. When you have such a large area with high ceilings, it’s important to use the right lighting to make it feel warm and inviting. Grouping downlights together helps form focused pools of light, which greatly influences the atmosphere of the space, allocating some areas with low levels of illumination, and others with strong, concentrated swathes.

The laidback natural style of the matching coastal ceiling fans plays to the Hamptons theme, and the choice of white palm leaf-style blades serves to soften a space filled with striking architectural features. On a functional level, two ceiling fans will keep the area cool and relaxed in summer.


Tanya & Vito’s Hallway

Kirsty & Jesse’s Hallway 

How to get the look: The hallway is the first thing anyone sees when they enter your home, and if you want to make a great first impression, the key is to create a warm and inviting atmosphere. A pendant is always a welcome sight, but since hallways are usually narrow spaces, make sure that your pendant size is proportionate to the size of your hallway. If you have artwork or features like Gyprock’s decorative cornices you want to highlight, well-placed pendants and downlights draw attention to your design feature as well as provide illumination in the area.

Powder Room

Kirsty & Jesse’s Powder Room 

How to get the look: With all the luxe brass elements in this space, we like to call this style Hamptons living with a Midas touch! Kirsty and Jesse followed the most important rule of lighting, which is to layer multiple sources of light especially in bathrooms that don’t have the benefit of a window to let in natural light. Placing a wall bracket between the vanity mirrors helps to eliminate annoying (and unflattering) shadows on your face. Adding dimmable downlights for general illumination and ribbon lighting under the vanity for accent lighting completes the look.

Home Theatre

Tanya & Vito’s Home Theatre    

How to get the look: Your home theatre is all about creating a dedicated viewing experience, so to limit distractions, ambient lighting is your best choice. Hanging or suspended fixtures can reflect on the screen or cause uneven lighting of a projected image. Recessed downlights are a better choice. Ensure the lights are dimmable to create a subtle theatre atmosphere, but also strong enough to illuminate the room for cleaning and other activities. This is also the perfect place to add strip lighting to recreate the cinema experience at home.
