Block Stars Share Summer Style

Posted by lorrainelea on Aug 31, '16

We can't think of anyone more qualified to bring gorgeous summer style to your home than former Block and Reno Rumble favourites, Michael and Carlene Duffy.

Lorraine Lea has teamed up with this uber-talented husband and wife duo to launch our Spring Summer Range and Inspirations catalogue.


Embracing the distinctive colours of the season, our new homewares catalogue is full of calming ocean blues, sandy neutrals, bold patterns and bright decorator pieces. With stylish and functional pieces to suit all personalities, ages and budgets, the new range helps to create a home you'll love living in.

“Summer is the perfect opportunity to reinvigorate your interior and bring new season style to your home,” explains Carlene.

“Whether you’re looking for pieces for the kitchen, bedroom, bathroom or lounge, Lorraine Lea has something to suit.”

Since their appearance on Channel Nine’s The Block in 2014, Michael and Carlene have launched their own renovation and design consultancy and blog, Cedar and Suede, and thrive on helping others find their unique style.

As Gold Coast locals, the fresh, seasonal colours and coastal-inspired pieces really appeal to Michael and Carlene, but for those with different tastes in décor, our new catalogue offers plenty of other options.

“The way a home is decorated should be an honest indication of who lives there, so let your personality come through in the colours, art and accents you choose,” advises Carlene.

“An easy way to bring a sense of summer into your home is with eye-catching accessories, light-coloured bed linen and a fresh plant or foliage from the garden.”

The couple kicked off the 3-month partnership by styling the front cover of our Spring Summer Inspirations catalogue and will share their tips and advice in a series of informative home styling videos.
