Leading advertising stylist Ali Griffiths contacted Gineico Lighting for lighting solutions when styling her own home on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. Based in Sydney, the stylist is experienced in wardrobe, props, set dressing and small set builds for stills advertising and television commercials.

While Griffiths was looking to create a sophisticated beach house vibe, Gineico Lighting was determined to provide solutions that were edgy and slightly theatrical in scale, given her professional background.

The iCementi Zero51 round ceiling fixture has been used in the entry atrium to create an edgy skylight appearance. The lightweight composite cement surround adds an element of texture that is not expected in a light fitting.

The Amax pendant from Fontana Arte is a big beautiful statement light that elegantly commands attention in the high ceiling spaces of the home.

The Miami from Antonangeli – a smaller outdoor weatherproof pendant – was used for the exterior of the house. The IP65 rated Miami can withstand the extremes of the beachside environment.

Griffiths’ distinctive light and bright styling combined with lighting from Gineico Lighting delivers an outstanding design outcome for the sophisticated beach house.
