About The Stylists

Judges on The Block were huge fans, giving Kyal and Kara 30 out of 30 for their bathroom reno. So highly regarded are the 'Super K's', they set a record for the highest number of challengers won! Kyal (the carpenter/builder) and Kara (the designer) have completed over 35 renovation projects and are a big hit on YouTube and Instagram and have been guest designers on Channel 10’s The Living Room.

Kyal & Kara love the uniqueness that comes with the wanderlust style and throughout their design projects are always seeking unique elements to add to their spaces. Kyal & Kara also love wanderlust for the bright colours, exotic textures and the storytelling of interiors when adorned with collected items from travels and adventures. 

Wanderlust Style Checklist

You are the ultimate curator of your own space. Immerse yourself in the world at large with all its colours, sights and smells. Surround yourself with leisurely memories of your favourite adventures and exotic cultures on your wish list. Bohemian playfulness tamed by a new level of luxury and sophistication.

Colour

  • Take colour hues from various travel destinations close to your heart. As a suggestion, think Morrocan colours - deep oranges, muted purples, yellows, creams and blue. 

Bathrooms

  • Choose heavy stone or marble floor tiles paired with a rustic feature mosaic that curves around corners.
  • Bring curves into the bathroom with a natural coloured stone freestanding bath against a Morrocan feature wall that's tiled floor to ceiling. 
  • Make a statement with black or gold tapware. 
  • Choose a handmade style timber vanity with a stone basin. 
  • Don't forget to decorate with ornate towels, exotic soap dishes and plants.

Main Floor Tile

  • Start with a bold stone design in grey or raw timber look tile in darker tones.
  • Create a feature with a patterned decorative tile. 
  • Add texture and an element of interest with a handmade rug or hallway runner made from natural fibres in bold colours.

Kitchens

  • Texture is king in the wanderlust kitchen! Choose splashback a rustic speckled mosaic or a heavy stone splashback tile. 
  • Add personal touches with beautiful cooking pots and pans that are traditional in the cuisines you love, for example, a clay tagine or your grandma's favourite pan. 
  • Decorate the kitchen with clay or dark timber utensil holders and add a couple of potted plants or herbs.  

Furniture & Finishing Touches

  • Seating should be low-level to incorporate the boho philosophy of relaxing and kicking back on comfy cushions. Consider adding slouchy floor pillows, leather pouffes, and soft ottomans to your living room. 
  • Get textural! Add baskets, planters, wall hangings and natural fibre rugs. Don't be afraid to mix and match fabrics and colours. 
  • Add plants that are native to your favourite travel destinations. 
  • Be sure to show restraint when finishing your space and focus on just showcasing your favourite pieces to withhold a level of sophistication.
