Blaze still light­ing the way on homes

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Decor -

TO fans of a cou­ple of pop­u­lar home im­prove­ment tele­vi­sion pro­grams, Shaynna Blaze is a house­hold name that has earned the ut­most re­spect.

Mel­bourne’s award-win­ning in­te­rior de­signer be­came a pub­lic face in 2008 as co-pre­sen­ter of The Life­Style Chan­nel’s Sell­ing Homes Aus­tralia and since 2012, she has also been a judge on the Nine Net­work’s hit se­ries The Block, help­ing guide and cri­tique the in­te­rior de­sign ideas of have-a-go Aus­tralians. This week­end, she will be in WA to help open a new high­end fur­ni­ture shop in Os­borne Park that she sees as a match for the “growth in ex­pres­sion” in the chang­ing mar­ket of Perth homes, res­tau­rants and cafes.

Fur­ni­ture Gallery’s third Perth store is be­ing mar­keted as a flag­ship show­room, show­cas­ing eclec­tic, con­tem­po­rary, and clas­sic fur­nish­ings and home dé­cor – in­clud­ing Ms Blaze’s light­ing prod­ucts, de­scribed as a jux­ta­po­si­tion of el­e­gance and strength.

“My light­ing range is a con­trast of ma­te­ri­als with beau­ti­ful bold colours en­cased in or­ganic glass shapes with rims of sil­ver and cop­per,” Ms Blaze said. “Lights are stars in their own right and are tak­ing cen­tre stage, lit­er­ally in in­te­ri­ors.

“Light­ing has made its way to be the fea­ture piece in the home and be­com­ing very bold.”
