The Block’s resident bed gurus, Ronnie and Georgia, walk us through their fail-safe rules for making the perfect bed.
When it comes to styling a room, no one does it better than Georgia, who’s had the judges oohing and aahing each week, thanks to her clean lines, simple colour palettes and a keen eye for design.
