The Block 2018 Gatwick: Living and dining room reveals

The living and dining rooms were revealed on The Block last night. Did you watch? I do not envy these contestants at all. Give me a small room to decorate any day of the week… These massive spaces are too hard to handle! How big were some of these spaces?! Courtney and Hans actually did a good job considering they had the biggest area to work with. I am glad they created some zones (even though I thought they were pretty boring). But considering the target market for buyer, I think they need to keep everything pretty neural. I hope the kitchen ties all these spaces together. I did love Bianca and Carla’s space. That had more character. But I am soooo over the velvet. It’s got to stop!

Check out their efforts below and tell me what you think…

Courtney and Hans

Score: 27.5/30

It goes on for days! Courtney and Hans’ winning room features a stunning custom-made parquetry table, tribal details, gorgeous artwork and three distinct living zones, sectioned into sitting room, dining area and relaxed TV watching spot.

There’s a lot to love about Bianca and Carla’s light, bright, airy living space, which features a stunning designer pendant light, parquetry floors, gorgeous black diaphanous drapes, a huge statement art piece in hues of blacks and blues, a cosy sitting area, and a large dining table with eight seats in grey velvet.

Kerrie and Spence’s living room set itself apart with that stunning coffered ceiling.

Jess and Norm

Score: 25/30

Jess and Norm’s huge suspended fireplace played havoc with their layout this week. But despite their travails, the couple from Queensland managed to create a truly beautiful, pared-back space, which featured some stunning furniture pieces from an Indigenous not-for-profit organisation. It also saw an oversized olive tree, leather lounge, aboriginal art, a gorgeous sideboard and hints of ocre complete the look.
