All of us here at Brilliant SA are proud to announce the success our ‘brilliant’ team of designers at the recent Kitchen and Bathroom Designers Institute National Awards, demonstrating once again that Brilliant SA remains a step ahead in the South Australian design industry.

At the August Awards Ceremony, Designer Janine Izzo’s transformation of a 1934 Californian Bungalow’s 27 year old bathroom was awarded Best Small Bathroom Design for South Australia – the second consecutive year that Janine has taken out this honour.


The client’s desire to experiment with unique features not commonly used within the South Australian market allowed scope for Janine to exercise the flair and innovation for which she is rapidly becoming known, creating a design that excites and refreshes the senses. The award backs up Janine’s exceptional success in 2012, which saw her named Australian Kitchen and Bathroom Designers Institute’s Bathroom Designer of the Year for SA/WA. The judges of the highly competitive award praised Janine’s design, saying that “the use of lighting, clever materials and refinement made this design totally tasteful. First impression was ‘wow’ and how exciting that the client had allowed the designer so much scope and freedom. As with all small rooms, the available space created lots of challenges to overcome but the result was very well done

Janine wasn’t celebrating alone, however, with two other Brilliant SA designers receiving accolades in recognition of their outstanding work in Bathroom Design over the past 12 months. Steve Mahlo’s experience and originality helped him top his 2012 Double Finalist title with a Highly Commended in the Large Bathrooms category, whilst Jordan Smith cemented her reputation as one of the state’s most exciting young designers with a High Commendation for her entry in the Small Bathrooms category. We are confident that Brilliant’s success is a testament to the hard work and innovation of our entire staff team.
