Bec and George will be back on our screens soon in The Block Triple Threat. It’s fair to say they’ve been busy living a whirlwind life since starring in The Block Sky High in 2013 and being crowned the public’s favourites. Since filming wrapped up, they certainly haven’t put down the hammer and nails. The couple, who’ve been together for 11 years, recently finished construction on their latest home in Melbourne. They called on Freedom Kitchens to help design their kitchen. Here, Bec shares a few of her design tips.
Tell us about your latest renovation project?
This is one of two townhouses we’ve built in the Inner West suburb of Spotswood, five minutes from the CBD and five minutes from Williamstown beach. We’ve always loved this area and bought into it years ago before the boom! The project has taken us two years to plan and 18 months to build; a long process of ever-changing decisions and long days of work.
The kitchen renovation in particular is very elegant. What was your design brief?
I love to cook and entertain, so the main brief for the design was that I could oversee the dining, living, alfresco and backyard areas, as well as have a large space to prepare food. Clean lines, crisp white and plenty of storage were also key elements! Every detail was thought through.
