The Block

I know I am a day late putting up the final room reveals from the Challenge Apartment on The Block, but the messy rescheduling of the show on tv got me all mixed up! Never fear, here it is though… So it’s all over now… Auction Day is looming and every challenge, room and reveal is done and dusted. Even though...

Did you guys watch the challenge apartment reveal (part 1) on The Block last night? I didn’t get a chance, so I am only going off the photos today. The winner of last night was Kim and Chris who were lucky enough to have $20,000 taken off their reserve. Bonus! Take a look at the photos below. Do you agree with the...

Last night on The Block all the apartments had to be completely finished and the contestants were given a chance to re-do some rooms (some even manged to add to theirs!). I’ve popped them here in order of house number and put a before photo followed by the after. Check them out… Will and Karlie Living room before...

How hot were the terrace reveals on the The Block last night? Anything with greenery really gets me going! And of course, the contestants didn’t disappoint. They also revealed the re-do rooms (which I will put together on a separate blog post later today). I did think Will and Karlie would have taken home the win...

Oooo don’t you just LOVE kitchen week on The Block? Last night the contestants smashed out some amazing work. Looks like black is a winner! I am in love with Will and Karlie’s masterpiece. Come and take a look at what they achieved. No expense was spared with the girls having at least $90,000 worth of appliances alone...

I didn’t get to see the Hall, Powder Room & Laundry reveals on The Block last night so I am just dumping the photos here for you guys today. I can see there were lots of unfinished spaces and obviously some are lacking in funds and are feeling the stress! I know that feeling! Take a look at what they managed to achieve...

Here we are with another bedroom reveal on The Block 2016 – this time with the Master. I was dying to see these rooms finished. I love the ideas they come up with. But the whole art deco thing must be hard for them! Some of the rooms are just so 70s hotel style! Let’s take a look at all of the rooms in order of what the...

I was so looking forward to this week. I love the living and dining room reveals. Bust was anyone else doing the double take on the scoring?? What the? I just don’t know what style any of the judges like anymore. It confuses me! I feel like I look at a room and know the judges will like it, but then they don’t?...

Bedrooms and bathrooms. That’s all we’ve seen so far on The Block! Hurry up and bring us a study, or living area. 🙂 Last night we saw another guest bedroom served up. Here’s what the contestants scored and what I thought about them…Ben and Andy Ben and Andy go from the bottom of the ladder to the top with a...

Hello there! Looking for the photos for The Block 2016 – Week 3 Main Bathroom Reveals? Well here they are! Dan and Carleen took out the win. I really liked this room, but I think Julia and Sasha’s space was better. What did you think? Come and take a look through the rooms in order of how the judges scored...

Howdy! Last week I didn’t get around the blogging about The Block and the bathrooms. I wasn’t sure I felt like I could commit to it all, but then after seeing all the comments on how no one liked the bathrooms and now these bedrooms I felt like I had to check it out! Woah, though. Back up. How come everyone is saying...

Come and take a look at the photos from The Block 2016 – Week 1 Ensuite Bathroom Reveals …Julia and Sasha jagged the win with their take on an art deco styled bathroom. I liked the dark cabinet and the tiles over the floor/wall works a treat. It’s a pretty understated bathroom – because it looks huge to me! I may...

Hi there! Today I wanted to share photos from the house Kyal and Kara renovated and then sold in 2015 at auction. You may have seen these pics before, but I just love the kitchen, so thought I would share it again! Thanks to Kara for sending me the photos and a blurb about their journey…In February, 2008 we bought...

I bet you didn’t know that Caro & Kingi’s apartment from The Block wasn’t purchased by a regular home owner or investor? In fact, the Mater Foundation (a not-for-profit organisation focused on improving patient care and medical research) has bought Apartment 1 at the recent Blocktagon Auction. Their Mater Prize Home...

Hi! So, the other day I decided to show you a couple of rooms from The Block New Zealand and introduce you to the couples. Check out that post if you like. I may/may not have copyright issues with these photos yet because NZ have different laws, so this post might be gone tomorrow – just seeking out some permission...

Hi there! Someone said to me the other day I really should look at The Block NZ and see what they are up to over there. They are in full swing of their show titled Villa Wars and 4 couples are competing. I decided to check it all out and bring you some of their room reveals. I can see, just from the website, that the...

Well here we are, at the end of The Block Octagon with the final rooms in the combined apartment being revealed last night. Dean and Shay took out the win with their living room. They scored 30/30, the keys to a Suzuki (which will sit in their garage for the penthouse’s new owner) and the right to the choose...

Last night, finally after the cricket, we saw reveal number 1 of the challenge apartment. I always think this is the worst part of the show! Who wants to start making over ANOTHER house when you think you’ve already finished?? Argh! Anyway, Dean and Shay took out first place with 29/30 for their enuite. The...

Last night on The Block Octagon we saw the terraces – the last offficial room reveal and now all the apartments are complete. I also have the photos below from any unfinished room so now you can see it all come together! Last night, Dean and Shay took out the win with a score of 28.5/30 and $10,000 cash to...

Whitney and Andy took out the win on The Block Octagon last night with the reveal of their dining and foyer area. They scored 26/30. It was difficult to judge the rooms last night as only 2 teams really finished, so I personally don’t think the scores really showed the real winners this week. Whitney and...

Last night on The Block it was Kitchen week! The reveals saw Caro and Kingi take out another first place win with a score of 29/30. The high-tech kitchen featured a touch-screen splash back and an island bench rendered by Kingi. The kitchen used the space well and it was huge. It did nothing for me though...

Last night on The Block Octagon we saw the reveal of the living room. I was very underwhelmed. What did you think?? See all the photos below… Luke and Ebony finally got a win! They received a score of 23.5/30. They were praised for delivering a room that could be “lived in”. After all, it is...

The judges gave them 28.5/30. They gave the...

Last night on The Block Octagon we saw the last guest bedroom and ensuite reveal. Taking out first prize with a $10,000 cash injection in to their budget was Caro and Kingi. The judges gave them 28.5/30 with lots of priase to go with it. Shaynna said “I don’t say this often but to me this couple has so much...

Last night on The Block Octagon we saw the master bedrooms be revealed. Taking out first prize with a $10,000 cash injection in to their budget was given to Suzi and Vonnie for their dark and hotel inspired master bedroom and WIR. The judges gave them a perfect score 30/30. See all the photos below + scroll...

Last night on The Block Octagon a guest bedroom and an ensuite was revealed. Again Dean and Shay took out the top spot. They look like the team to win! This is going to stir up the other couples if they keep on with this winning streak. What did you think of the rooms? Here are the photos below plus what I...

Last night we saw the first bathroom reveal for The Block Octagon. The couples really made a miraculous recovery from last weeks challenge disaster! WOW! They stepped up the styling that’s for sure. I don’t envy them doing the odd shape rooms “like a piece of pizza”. :: Dean and Shay stepped it up and took out the win...

Can we talk about The Block? What are you thinking so far if you’re watching? Oh my eyes last night. WOW, they hurt! I know the contestants get better, but that was a really rough reveal. Shaynna made me laugh though! Anyhoo… let’s have a look at the rooms… To give you a quick run down, the contestants were given $3k to...

Have you seen the new promo for The Block coming soon? Nicknamed the Blocktogon the new cast has been challenged to convert the octagonal shaped Hotel Saville in South Yarra into plush apartments. Julz (the producer) said there will be a change of direction in casting with a back-to-basics approach focusing on...
