The BLOCK: The highs and lows of dining room reveals

There is no doubt that the dining room of any home is it’s focal point, editor of Liz Rudenko, takes a look at some of the highlights from The Block’s dinning room reveals.  FullSizeRender

It’s no surprise that dining room week on ‘The Block’ saw the most dramatic reveals and even more dramatic tantrums.

As the contestants kept working their way through the mammoth job of renovating their apartments, viewers were very relieved to see a room that wasn’t a guest or bathroom this week – in fact the anticipation of the main living room had us on the edge of our seats.

Whilst the week leading up to reveals was far more reflective of soap opera drama than renovation show – as always the contestants managed to pull through and create some jaw dropping designs.

And so the highlights…

In my mind the star of the entire show was the artwork in Julia and Sasha’s apartment – everything from the colours, to the metailics and the golden frame gave the entire room a real sense of luxury. The-Block-2016-living-and-dining-room-reveals-julia-and-sasha-living-and-dining-2

The artwork also allowed for pops of colour throughout the otherwise simple canvas of the living room.

Elements such as the soft peach pillows on the sofa and blue themed chairs at the dinning room table, all played off the colours of the artwork and tied in together beautifully.

Whilst their colour pallet was on the completely opposite end of the spectrum to the girls – there was no denying that Dan and Carleen brought the glamour to their living/dining room.

Touching on the Art Deco style with hints of modern elements, this room could be defined as Great Gatsby meets penthouse apartment glamour.

From the soft feminism of the couch, rug and pillows to the slightly bolder more masculine choice of arm chairs and entertainment unit –  this apartment was the epitome oThe-Block-2016-living-and-dining-room-reveals-dan-and-carleen-living-and-dining-4f balance.

It is no wonder that both apartments came at a draw on judgement day.

Though Andy and Ben’s room left quite a cold feel on reveal day, there were definitely some elements to be highlighted.

Their in built-in shelving and fireplace was slick and glamorous, adding a real richness to the room.

Ans whilst this week they were the chumps Kalie and Will’s choice of artwork was both unique and a great idea for anyone who would like to use a blown up photo as appose to a more classic artwork.

Buckle up before next week…

If this week was anything to go by, the master bedroom will be as grand in emotions and it will be in style.

So if you’re looking for inspirations in you own bedrooms… stay tuned.
