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? What’s up with Will and Karlie scoring the lowest this week? I wasn’t expecting that. Anyway, come and take a look at the rooms (in order of scoring) and let me know what you think in the comments below…

Dan and Carleen

Dan and Carleen took home equal first prize this week with a score of 25.5/30. It wasn’t my favourite I’m afraid. I didn’t hate it, but I wasn’t in love with it. All the brown just doesn’t get me going. I like the round table, but the console and artwork wasn’t a hit with me. Nor were the 2 floor rugs. I like that they put effort into the tv area, but again the brown wasn’t the best. The couch and rug don’t match well enough in my books.

Oh, they came equal first? Also with a score of 25.5/30. Now we all love the girls, but I thought the room was unfinished? I love the glamour in here and those navy dining chairs are divine, but everything was plonked in the space with no floor rugs, hardly any decorating goodies, and the tv stand? Where’s the built-in stuff so you can hide cords and watch Netflix?? Too rigid for me and doesn’t feel warm enough. But I bet they smash the kitchen and then it’ll all flow beautifully.

The boys scored 23/30 this week and it wasn’t a bad room. The couch squished in between the pillar wasn’t the best move. I know they had to work around it, but I didn’t love that. A big yes for the built in cabinetry around the tv. Loved the hanging pendant too, but the bar cart wasn’t right. I like their simple tones and colours though. The coffee table was my favourite.

4th place today with 21/30. It wasn’t a bad room at all. Lovely and warm and should look good when teamed with the kitchen area. I probably wouldn’t have gone with so much exposed brick, but it still works. Again a little bit too much brown for my taste, they probably didn’t need the dining console table, but the mirror is a positive. The rug under the couches works well, but I prefer no rug under the dining (and this one looks a little bit too small).

Will and Karlie

Robbed? In my opinion! Ha! They were last this week with a score of 20.5/30. I thought they had this in the bag for sure. This room is my favourite. I do agree with Neale that they could pull a few things out of this room (the floor cushions, single chair and the cupboard), but they have definitely put more effort into this room than some of the other couples. Yes to the tv niche. That’s a must-have I think. The colours are gorgeous, and the curtains are so grand. The black wall and artwork screams style. I think the dining table was a little small for the area, but I can’t wait to see the kitchen in this house.

What did you think this week? Agree or disagree with the judges?
