Here we go again! It’s time for The Block 2019 (The Oslo). Secret – I did reapply for this season (with my husband), and clearly it was a no-go and just as well (Mum, don’t freak out – we came to our senses!!), because look at the size of this building! As you can see, they don’t often finish the rooms in time. It’s a monster.
This week was guest bedrooms. I’ve got 3 rooms to show you today and 2 more tomorrow.
Check out their efforts below and tell me what you think…
MITCH AND MARK
Fifteen-time house flippers Mitch and Mark brought their own luxe sense of style to their first room reveal – and it hit the nail right on the head for our judges.
“It’s palatial,” Neale said, upon walking into the first guest room, which featured sky-high ceiling heights and a sumptuous palette of slate grey, greens and blues, which worked against a stunning tiled feature wall beautifully. The judges thought it exuded a sense of ‘Old Hollywood’ glamour, and Shaynna was particularly pleased with the couple’s use of colour.

TESS AND LUKE
This year’s youngest contestants were caught off-guard with just how much work is required to complete a room of this size. And, after several big set-backs this week, they were unable to properly complete their room. The couple opted for a dark-coloured carpet, and dressed the room with a green occasional chair, a small wooden table, and quirky ornaments on the fireplace. They placed dark beading on the walls, presumably to frame two prints above the bed, but at the time of judging they were yet to hang them.

ANDY & DEB
Both Darren and Neale thought that it was interesting that the couple had chosen to take the room in a Scandi-style direction, but weren’t entirely convinced about using that particular decor choice in the Federation-style home.
What did you think of the guest rooms this week?
Come back tomorrow to see the last 2 rooms!
