Reno Rumble: Grand Final!

And just like that Reno Rumble is over and done for another season. Last night was the Grand Final and it was Steve & Nadia against Lisa & John. A LOT of work was done by the two couples and I really love the house they produced. Check out the photos below with judges comments. The WINNER is revealed too... The communal areas this week... Outdoors Master Bedroom Tara’s bedroom (John and Lisa) Colin loved the way John and Lisa featured the dreamcatchers in Tara’s bedroom and felt they added great texture to the room. Justin thought the bedroom was confident space and well put together with good detailing and storage, as well as a colour scheme that really worked. While...Continue reading

Reno Rumble: Reveal 4

This week on Reno Rumble we saw Debbie's whole house get a full renovation. The reveals were split over 2 nights (one half was last week), but I thought I'd blog the entire one all together. Check out the rooms below... The communal room this week was the hallway... Office (Dane and Leanne) Colin thought that the wallpaper choice was commanding because of the single bold repeated print. The judges loved the desk and choice of different chairs. They felt the shelving around the door was practical but the colour and finish of it let the overall tone of the room down. Colin’s score: 8/10                           Justin’s score: 8/10                          Total: 16/20       Bathroom Upon walking into the bathroom, the judges thought it...Continue reading

Reno Rumble: Week 1 Footscray and Fitzroy

Each week I will share the room reveals from tv show Reno Rumble (Western Red v Eastern Blues). I like this show because real people live in the houses before the reno starts so everything we see is normal, achievable and practical. There aren't any ground-breaking interior design trends, but that's why I like it all - it's what the everyday person can set out to achieve! I don't care much for the chatter during the week, but I do love looking at the finished rooms. Check out the first reveal below... RED TEAM: FOOTSCRAY RED TEAM: Dane and Leanne, mother and son from SA. This week they renovated a guest bedroom and kitchen and took the red team to victory in the Footscray...Continue reading

The Block 2015: New cast coming soon!

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 “clueless”, passionate, do-it-yourself couples. Hooray! A bit like my season (2011 season 4). Among the mixed bunch, there’s a beauty therapist, a real estate agent and even a cheerleader. Watch the promo below… The season will feature five teams… Here they are…       Will you be watching this season? I hope to bring you lots of photos and updates when I can!

Steve and Tiana WIN House Rules

I’m happy Steve and Tiana won House Rules last night. How great were their reactions? I had originally picked Ben and Danielle as the winners waaayyyy back at the start, but I think the reactions on Steve and Tiana’s faces were priceless. It’s nice to see deserving people win… What about their secret room reveals? Here are the photos from Steve and Tiana’s makeover of Ben and Danielle’s garage. They were told to give it a Ralph Lauren feel. Initially I was worried, but I think they did a good job. What do you think? :: Poor Ben and Danielle were upset, but they were happy and grateful for the experience. I love that no matter what you get your…

House Rules: Charity House Reveal + grand final is here

We’re at the pointy end of House Rules now with the grand final week upon us. Last night we saw the Charity House Reveal. The teams were under the pump. Whilst they still have a long way to go design wise, I still LOVE watching them evolve. I am not sad Bronik and Corrine went home. If I had to see one more week of Bronik’s “risky design alaments” (as he pronounces it) with the 1990’s slate and angles I was going to have to send him a message (somehow!). Ha! Oh, I just was not happy with that dining room this week. And for it to be such a camera grabbing drama where they wouldn’t give Ben and Danielle…

House Rules: The exteriors

Now all of the exterior areas on House Rules are done, we can see all the photos together. What did you think? Here are they are… Bronik & Corrine’s house Ben and Danielle completed the front of Bronik and Corrine’s with a simple and sweet style. It was pretty obvious Ryan and Marlee would be going home after the exteriors reveal of Bronik and Corrine’s backyard last night. I just wasn’t a fan. It was all kinds of wrong… See the photos below… I loved what Corrine said “shall we talk about the elephant in he room?” Haha in reference to the graffiti. The artwork would have looked good in the right space, but not here in this yard. I…
