About MINT

MINT is the brainchild of Internationally recognised residential lighting expert Adele Locke back in 2012.  Since then we have helped hundreds of home owners find the perfect lighting solutions for their home and budget.  From LED upgrades in single rooms to large new homes, the MINT approach to honest, people focused lighting design gets great results.

Adele grew up working in her fathers lighting manufacturing business right here in Melbourne, and that reference point gives her design work a unique clarity, and an understanding of the machines that create light.

MINT is growing all the time, and although we are truly independent designers (we don't sell any lights, so our advice is always based on what you actually need) we can also see that it's deeply challenging for home owners and the rest of the design community alike to distill who is selling quality lights, and where they should be investing their lighting budget.

To that end, we're focusing this year on bringing all the authentic, local makers and designers of light  into one easily accessible place - so you can trust what you're buying and be confident in getting the right light at home.

WE LOVE WHAT WE DO, AND WHO WE DO IT FOR!  HERE ARE SOME OF OUR CLIENTS STORIES...

Mint Lighting designed the lighting for my two bedroom apartment at Docklands. 
The lighting solutions were practical and the results are wonderful. 
The place now has a very comfortable modern feel. 
Adele was easy and fun to work with, and the result is lighting that I could never have designed myself. The costs were very reasonable, including lamps sourced by Mint Lighting.

Home Owner, Docklands Apartment

I have nothing but praise for Adele's service.

She quickly solved the lighting problems in our high ceiling living areas and the quality of light we now have is fantastic.

I also liked the fact that she recommended quite simple inexpensive lighting (from IKEA) for lesser used areas like spare bedrooms.

Mint lighting design was engaged to offer a full lighting design service from concept through to supply of light fittings.  

Adele's deep knowledge and understanding of lighting design helped us to take the project to a next level. Her involvement has helped us immensely all the way through the renovation. Plus she helped us to source light fittings at amazing rates!

Highly recommended to anyone involved with renovations or new builds!

Home Owner, Armadale

Mint Lighting provided precisely what I was looking for, i.e. expert advice on the kind of lighting that would best suit the area, recommendations on the hardware required, acquisition of the hardware at a reasonable price and provision of ongoing technical support to the electrician who needed quite a bit of help to overcame some technical issues that arose during installation. Mint were responsive and efficient. In short, the service is comprehensive from concept to completion. Highly recommended!

Home Owner, South Yarra

Thanks, Adele. I am very excited to have some scientific and intelligent input into my choice of lights. There is a lot more to creating atmosphere, and providing optimal lighting than just walking into a lighting store. I feel confident that, with your input, the lighting in my new home will be a feature of the house that adds enormously to its appeal. Thank you.

Hi Adele, just to let you know - I love turning on the lights! They are superb.  I love the ambiance the light delivers, and it has changed how the house feels.  It's a marvelous result.

Home Owner, Sandringham
