The Block 2021 Winners And Our Favourite Rooms
Congratulations to Mitch and Mark on their incredible win! Join us as we revisit the most stunning rooms of the season.
Tools are finally down on the drama-packed Fans vs Faves season of The Block, with all five teams reaping big rewards for all their hard work. However, the shock win of Mitch and Mark took everyone by surprise, with the Sydney couple taking home $744,444.44 (including $100,000 prize money) after their family-friendly home sold for over $4 million. Congratulations Mitch and Mark, your determination to stick to your vision certainly paid off!
As proud lighting suppliers of this season’s reno, we followed the five teams week after week as they used our products to transform five houses into luxurious family homes in picturesque Hampton.
We’ve looked back on 12 weeks of stunning reveals and picked our favourites to share with you.
Week 1 – Mitch & Mark’s Guest Bedroom
Their lighting choice: Seagrass Pendant
Week 2 – Kirsty & Jesse’s Main Bathroom
The verdict: Small but perfectly formed, this gorgeous room has the look and feel of a luxurious 5-star hotel bathroom, and who doesn’t love that. By matching the gold wall brackets with the brass tapware and towel holders, Kirsty and Jesse brought the whole look together to tell one glamorous story.
Week 3 – Mitch & Mark’s Master Bedroom
Week 4 – Ronnie & Georgia’s Home Theatre
Week 5 – Ronnie & Georgia’s Master Ensuite
Their lighting choice: Parker Cylinder Bracket Brass
Week 6 – Kirsty & Jesse’s Kids' Bedroom
Their lighting choice: Ascot Wall Bracket
Their cooling choice: Viceroy Fan
The verdict: This is what childhood dreams are made of. Kirsty and Jesse delivered one of the sweetest kids’ bedrooms we’ve ever seen on The Block. Our Ascot wall light looked gorgeous in the window seat, providing perfect lighting for reading or playing. The ceiling fan was just the right size for the space and added another layer of Hamptons-inspired design to this fun and functional room.
Week 7 – Kirsty & Jesse’s Kitchen
The verdict: Oozing style and sophistication, Kirsty and Jesse’s kitchen is a perfect example of the power of the pendant to impact a room. The choice of our stunning alabaster Luella pendant was a masterstroke, as its brass detailing picked up on all the brass accents in the cabinetry and tapware, bringing all the different design elements together to tell a complete Hamptons story. We love it!
Week 8 – Mitch & Mark's Living & Dining
Their cooling choice: Tahitian Fan
The verdict: Mitch and Mark proved that you don’t always need a pendant or chandelier as your feature piece. They used a pair of our beautiful palm leaf-style ceiling fans to make a statement in their living area and keep everyone cool and comfy. They also grouped downlights together which greatly influences the atmosphere of the space, allocating some areas with low levels of illumination, and others with strong, concentrated swathes.
Week 9 - Tanya & Vito’s Hallway
The verdict: Who wouldn’t feel inspired walking into a hallway lined with artworks and stunning sculptural lighting? We certainly were and loved how Tanya and Vito played with the different sizes and shapes of our Zinc pendants to design their own unique architectural light piece.
Week 10 – Kirsty & Jesse’s Backyard
Their cooling choice: Tahitian 132cm Fan White,
The verdict: The biggest backyard on The Block was also one of the rooms that really took our breath away. This outdoor space is every family’s dream, and with a fire pit and big Tahitian ceiling fan, it’s an entertaining space to be enjoyed all year round – even in Melbourne’s notorious four-seasons-in-one day climate. Luxe lifestyle on a platter!
Week 11 – Josh & Luke’s Wine Cellar
Week 12 – Ronnie & Georgia’s Façade
Their lighting choice: Southampton 1LT Small Exterior Wall Bracket Antique Black, Lilly 1LT 12V Bollard 900MM Spike
