The intro to this week’s room reveal episode of The Block Triple Threat promised that we’d see some major, super-impressive master bedrooms. But I can’t say that it really delivered on said promise. I didn’t find the majority of them to be worth writing home about, did you? And on a side note: I find sleep deprived people decorating at 4am and using power tools a little unsavoury.

Anyway, that aside (I’m getting too caught up in the drama, clearly), let’s take a look at this week’s reveals and discuss what worked and what didn’t. Personally, I was let down by the teams overall – except one.
As always, I’d love to get your take on the spaces too. We are the shows fourth and fifth judges, after all!
PS: Did you see the post on the upcoming Reno Rumble? How do we feel about that?

Oh no, what the?! This room was not good guys. A giant two-seater sofa plonked in the middle of the space; no thank you. If they wanted a sofa here it needed to have a lower back so your eyes would glide over it. The proportions were so off here. All the furniture was running down one side of the room in a line, so there was a real lack of balance.
The colours were calm, subdued and neutral, which is certainly what you want in a bedroom, but this was too white. Am I living in a parallel universe? Do you like this space? I don’t get it. Look at the bed and all those blank walls. It didn’t feel finished to me. Am I missing something?

Look, I won’t lie – it looks very similar to their last bedroom, which is great for continuity’s sake, but I don’t think it’s wise to simply replicate a room (Darren and Dea did it with their ensuite and I said the same thing). I really liked their last room, so I clearly like this one, but really… there’s no design moments to wow you here, because you’ve seen it all before.
The colours were rather divine though, right? Gorgeous purple tones and soft greys. It’s a killer combination and I’m most certainly a fan. But they have to be marked down for lack of creativity.
The walk-in was OK. I like a walk-in with a window, but that’s just me. You want to get ready in natural light.
Ayden and Jess
I am always so hard on these guys, but there were a lot of good things happening in this room, so I gotta give them some props. It felt layered, there were interesting moments mixed with calm ones and it did feel warm and welcoming.
That said, there was too much wood overwhelming the space. So much warm wood. The pendants, if you took them away, would have been a good start. As usual with these guys, a few too many competing elements. They are getting better though, don’t you think?
The walk-in was so-so. I honestly would hate getting ready in the morning in a wardrobe with no natural light. A little too cold and clinical.
Darren and Dea
Wowza. This is rocking my world! The bed, the candles, that wall colour. Oh my, everything is working here. The grasscloth was a revelation and they created a scene on that bed that you just wanted to dive into. There’s nothing I don’t love about this room. I want to live here immediately. The bedsides, with those pendants draping over them, were also a divine moment. I can’t say enough good stuff about it.
Surely this is inspiring those of you who own your home to go bold with wall colour. If I owned I would be painting my walls dark ASAP.
The walk-in was lovely, too. Light and bright; just how I like it!
