I don’t always agree with the judges on The Block and last night’s episode was no different. I was very pleased to see that Whitney and Andy finished their space this time around, although as I said in last Monday’s post, I thought that they should have won for their bedroom last week regardless. It showed such promise!
But let’s not dwell on weeks gone by. This week revealed one OMG moment, three pretty spectacular spaces and another diabolical design disaster.
Let’s get into the assessment and see which rooms on this week’s ep of The Blocktagon wowed and which were woeful.
Good heavens above; this is one of the best rooms I’ve seen on The Block in ages. Love the feature wall, am obsessed with that artwork (shop it below), thought the bedhead was genius and couldn’t get enough of the moody colour palette in the space.
Kingi and Caro have become my spirit animals this week and I want them to replicate this look in my bedroom ASAP if not sooner. I am stealing every idea here and I’m not afraid to admit it.
The judges were all on board with this room too, with Darren saying how much he loved the bedhead and enjoyed Caro’s styling. Shaynna got down about the feet of the bed but I’m completely willing to overlook it. This room rocks!
I’m just not feeling the girls’ style, I have to be honest. Last week the judges gushed over their room but I thought it was so-so. This week, it seems to have happened again because they came in second place.
The judges were more keen on the ladies use of imagery on glass this week but I’m really not much on this concept. I hope they don’t keep replicating this in other rooms. They need to pull it back a bit as I think it dominates the space too much. I also don’t like the colour of the wall the door is on. The whole space feels a bit disjointed and unfinished.
There are some very cool pieces in this room – like the pendants – but they got lost here. The ensuite was very nice though.
