Just when you thought we had reached the end, The Block threw one last curve-ball – an entire challenge apartment!
For the last two weeks the contestants have been working together; renovation, painting, styling and creating some truly showstopping rooms for one lucky competition winner.
So who really thrived in the final hurdle?
Style highlights …
The first week was all about bedrooms and bathrooms and I have to say for me the girls, Carla and Bianca, knocked it out of the park with a slightly quirky but oh so stylish En Suite bathroom.
The standout here is the amazing pink palm tree wallpaper – it’s just so St Kilda, while still remaining lux, I could definitely see this being featured in a luxury boutique hotel.
The black tapwear works perfectly against all the white and blush tones, along with that gorgeous bath, and a simple black and white colour scheme.
The monochrome feel of the luxurious bath, tapwear and vanity work beautifully in the room – along with the two circular mirrors – simple but very elegant.
The second bathroom for the week from Sara and Hayden was also lovely – chick and modern with a classic monochrome theme.
I loved the white textured tile, which paired beautifully with a simple grey floor tile and the bath was simply stunning, a long way away from their infamous gold selection.
In the second week there’s no doubt it was all about that Kitchen from Courtney and Hanz – simply spectacular!
This is everything a luxe St Kilda kitchen should be and more – with a touch of glamorous New York vibes.
Let’s start with the island – this will keep families and guests gathering in the kitchen day after day, with it’s size and perfect positioning.
The open shelving gives the room a great sense of space and light, coupled with a gorgeous splashback, stainless steel gantries and luxurious caesarstone benchtops.
I love the hint of pink in their ‘3182’ neon St Kilda sign – such a quirky and fun element, perfect for the suburb they are in.
In terms of functionality the integrated voice-command oven is a dream for any household and just when you thought it couldn’t get any better – the butler’s pantry with enormous Sub Zero fridge elevated the room to the next level.
To match the gorgeous kitchen, Norm and Jess created an absolutely stunning bright and bold dining room that compliments the space perfectly.
The absolute highlight is that stunning bespoke Christian Cole round table and leather chairs – it’s truly a piece of art.
The gorgeous pendant light works beautifully in this room and keeping with the theme of a St Kilda cafe, I loved the quirky yet lux addition like the gorgeous Palm Springs artwork.
And finally the pièce de résistance – that absolutely fabulous and enormous neon sign that compliments the small sign in the kitchen, for their final stamp on The Block, I think we can say ‘It’s All Good’.
