I hardly watch any TV these days. When I do have that precious ‘me time’ I’m normally working on things for my freelance PR & marketing clients or working on Peach Macarons (what can I say- I like working!).
But the home DIY-er in me does love tuning into The Block. For those not based in Australia it’s a show where couples are set with the incredible task of completely renovating a residential dwelling (in this series it’s an apartment). Each couple have an entire apartment to renovate from the inside out. Complete with all the bells and whistles – appliances, fully furnished and ready to live in and all done in record time.
I love seeing transformations, the creative and innovative ideas they come up with and all the gorgeous styling and decor they use. This seasons has had some fabulous ‘room reveals’ I thought I would show you a few of my favourite ones. Contestants Darren and Deanne and Tim and Anastasia are two of my personal favs. Which is funny because there has been a bit of controversy around these two couples having very similar styling tastes. I’ll let you be the judge of that….
Just below is the kitchen that Darren and Deanne reveal and the judge gave them an absolute caning over! Ummm call me crazy, but it looks pretty amazing to me. I think the judges were being waaaaay too harsh (even some of their fellow contestants felt the same way). What do you think?
If you are loving the decorating pieces you have seen on the show (or these images) you can actually shop their products. How good! Head over to The Block Shop to check out their super stylish products. I’m in love with these limited edition printed from Ali McNabney
