Master Bedroom and Walk in Wardrobe Reveal
The contestants on The Block 2021 are getting well into their stride now with the reveal of the Master Bedroom and walk in robe. Josh and Luke stood out as the clear winners this week continuing with their luxe feel and the most fabulous walk in wardrobe, which I would absolutely love in my home. In my view there was just one other successful master bedroom, two which were nice, but nothing amazing and one that I felt didn't work terribly well at all. Read further to see the Master Bedroom reveal from each contestant on The Block 2021.
First Place: Josh & Luke || Score 27/30 || Spent $19,830
My thoughts on Josh & Luke's room
- These guys are not letting us down with their gorgeous luxe theme continuing through their house. Their look is sophisticated, calming and grown-up.
- By going against the original intent of the house design and placing the master bedroom suite where the garage had been aimed, Josh and Luke have ended up with a fabulous, spacious and light filled area. The best part of this is that it is situated away from the rest of the house with a view outside to the courtyard. This is a very savvy design decision.
- The colour palette is restrained and elegant. They have continued their scheme of blues, whites and greys which is very successful.
- The only thing that I thought let down the room was the gold mirror over a black and marble console table. A silver mirror would have been more successful with this table, and with the scheme generally. Either the mirror should have been smaller or the console table larger.
- Finally, who wouldn't love the walk in wardrobe? With a price tag of only $19,830, Josh and Luke spent the least amount of money this week.
Second Place: Mitch & Mark || Score 26.5/30 || Spent $20,376
My thoughts on Mitch & Mark's room
- These guys delivered one of the nice master suites – not stunning or memorable, just nice.
- The colour scheme is pretty and the bed looks inviting and is simply but stylishly dressed.
- I love the textured carpet, as I have said before, this is always my first choice.
- The cabinet and mirror work beautifully in the room and the proportions of each are perfect.
- I think this room will actually come into its own when we see it opening out onto the balcony – I love a master suite with a separate outdoor area.
- The walk in wardrobe is beautifully finished – not huge – but large enough with heaps of great storage.
Third Place: Tanya & Vito || Score 24/30 || Spent $25,649
My thoughts on Tanya & Vito's room
- I have to say that I found it difficult to assess this master suite as I couldn't get past the bedhead. I know that Shaynna loved it but with the placement of the bedside lights I feel that it is like a monster with two huge eyes staring at me. Did anyone else think that? I don't want to be harsh, when you look at the rest of the room, it is pretty successful but I would have to change this.
- What I love about Tanya and Vito is their courage and their success with introducing colour into their rooms. Using Tanya's own lovely artwork as an inspirational piece, the rich colour palette of deep blue and terracotta with accents of green is rich and welcoming.
- I would have preferred to see carpet used in this room though and I feel that this would have worked better with the built in joinery. It is just all a little yellow with the oak floor.
- The storage in this room though is fabulous but comes at a price with Tanya and Vito spending almost the most this week – just $271 short of the highest spenders.
Fourth Place: Ronnie & Georgia || Score 23.5/30 || Spent $24,500
My thoughts on Ronnie & Georgia's room
- I know that the size of the walk in wardrobe let down Ronnie and Georgia's master suite but their master bedroom is delightful and I feel that they should have taken out second place this week.
- The earthy colour palette of green, terracotta and warm beige tones is a calming scheme that is perfect for a bedroom. With accents of rich purple in the artwork, the colours in the room are spot on. It is great to see how these guys have matured already through the programme in terms of their colour choices. The first two weeks saw some hesitancy with schemes of very simple neutral tones. These were effective, but this week they have developed that look and progressed to a very successful colour palette.
- I love the beautifully tactile carpet with the generous sized transitional rug. Their styling is perfect with a contemporary look which still has a classic feel which will have wide appeal.
- The walk in wardrobe is on the smaller side but still has plenty of storage and really I think the master bedroom with its soaring ceiling and stunning window makes up for it. I'm not sure how they ended up in fourth place.
Last Place: Kirsty & Jesse || Score 22.5/30 || Spent $24,920
My thoughts on Kirsty & Jesse's room
- This is another one of the nice master suites. Pretty well executed but just not that memorable.
- The bed is a lovely feature of the room, with a generous sized bedhead and bed frame in a gorgeous neutral grey, this grounds the room nicely and ties in very well with the artworks. Shaynna didn't like these but I feel they work well in the room and suit the colour scheme perfectly. The bedhead should have been a little larger though or the bedside tables smaller as it didn't all quite work together.
- I wasn't a fan of the arched doors as I felt it was too at odds with the rest of the look, but the main thing I didn't like was the timber chest of drawers. This just looked a little daggy in this space, particularly with the white framed mirror above. They were not in proportion and didn't tone in colour either. This however, is easy to change.
- The walk in wardrobe is very well designed, just a little on the small side. Kirsty and Jesse spent the most amount of money this week at $24,920.
My favourite pieces from the show this week
My pick of the furniture and styling items this week all come from Ronnie and Georgia's master suite. I really did love this room and congratulate them on a very grown up and considered space. The bedside tables and cabinet from Satara were perfect and I loved the cushions, rug and occasional chair.
