The Block – The Master Bedroom Room Reveal
Not sure why Trixie did not go the easier option and change the colour of her bed linen rather getting Johnno to re-paint the day before the master bedroom reveal. Wouldn’t that be easier? Trixie did have a point when she said the judges don’t judge on the renovation but on the colour of the cushion.
Which is ridiculous, as a cushion is not going to get them the big bucks, it is the features for example under floor heating is a far bigger selling feature than yellow bed sheets.
It was sad news for Bec and George with her mother dying and props for the producers for not beating it up for ratings and handling it sensitively. At the end of the episode the contestants were sent home to see their families. Clearly wanting to give Bec sometime to decide whether to return or not.
The judges thoughts on the Master Bedrooms and Dressing Room:
Trixie and Johnno’s – The judges loved the linen but they would have liked the dressing room be more up market.
Madi and Jarrod – Neale liked the Chanel poster but Darren spotted the dodgy ceiling this will have to be fixed before auction day. Shaynna did not like the placement of the bed looking at the television and said people would prefer the view of the city rather than the city scape. They were also criticised for using two different types of timber. However they loved the wood they used in the dressing room. Neale thought they had talent but they needed to get their act together.
Bec and George room was finished with some assistance by Scott Cam and the rest of the contestants. They did realise that there was under floor heating and the wood used. Darren loved the padded bed head as well as the layout of the dressing room. Bec has good taste and gets it right more then wrong.
Matt and Kim – Neale thought the colour palette was genius, but he hated the art and thought it looked like severed head. Personally I thought the ledge under the TV was going to be more of a hindrance either a junk collecting ledge plus the potential of continually bumping into it. They loved the wall maybe that was a designer thing as it looked half finished. Shaynna loved the lights in the dressing room plus the veneer of the wood. They had placed a chaise lounge and it cut off access to some shelves, however the judges did not mention it. They thought Matt and Kim had found their mojo.
Lysandra and Alisa – Shaynna loved the bath looking over the cityscape in the dressing room and in the end it did the room a cosy feel to it. Darren said I hate the idea of a feature wall but he said it works, and even though Neale was “wowing” about the room he did not like the wooden artwork.
You have to wonder if polished concrete wall paper is going to become a big thing.
The winner of the room were the twins who received 28 out of 30. Matt and Kim missed out by one point of claiming this week’s cash prize.
