For week two, THE BLOCK contestants had to deliver a formal living room.
So what would one be looking out for?
A formal living room should have a combination of luxury with a touch of comfort, and while not all the room delivered that kind of balance this week, some nailed it.
Style highlights …
The winners of this week’s room reveal Matt and Elise delivered a beautiful and warm room with some gorgeous heritage details.
Everything from the stunning grey rug, ceiling rose, and the cabinetry gave the room a high end feel – and the perfect balance between modern and heritage.
The colour palette featuring burnt orange and grays felt warm and inviting, while still maintaining a sense of luxury.
The burnt orange drapes over plantation shutters were definitely a standout featuring, tying in the whole space with the two burnt orange occasional chairs and the working fireplace.
For a modern touch, I loved their selection of the stunning high-fashion photographic prints which added to the balance of the room.
While they didn’t win the room reveal, Mitch and Mark room was definitely my favourite this week once again with their luscious old Hollywood style.
It’s very exciting to finally see some colour on the show and these guys have that in spades – using greens and burnt oranges and royal blues.
The room has a lot of character with the glass and bronze ‘pineapple’ table, as well as the Art Deco long feature table with two reading lights.
The choice of furniture is impeccable – within a luscious royal blue velvet couch and gorgeous green velvet chairs.
In third place, but with a beautiful warm inviting room were Andy and Deb, who’s room oozed conform and personality.
A real point of difference was the exposed brickwork above the fireplace – which was matched nicely with the white cabinetry.
One of the absolute standouts in this room is the gorgeous green feature wall in the hall, a feature which showcased their artwork to great, which ties in the room beautifully.
Their choice of furniture was lovely sticking to their colour pallet to feature a brown leather couch and two green stunning chairs.
Still ahead …
Next week is set to be a showstopper with some incredible master bedrooms.
