The Block Triple Threat: Master Bedroom + Robe Reveals

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.

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.

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!

  • I agree Josh and Charlotte’s was missing some wall art. It couple have been so much better.
    Didn’t love T&A’s room. Didn’t mind Ayden and Jess’ room but they did need some more storage in the bedroom. Loved D & D’s room.

    I was also only wowed by D&Ds bedroom – it was fabulous! I’m not sure how Josh and Charlotte got the perfect score as I thought their room lacked oomph and soul that the judges are always talking about (Plus those rafters are at my husband’s football club so it doesn’t really scream luxury to me, lol). Tim & Anastasia – don’t like them or any of their rooms! Not my style at all. D&Ds style, as they say, is classic but still contemporary and can appeal to more buyers which is certainly the case with me. I can clearly see small chances I could do to make it more to my taste without it needing a complete overhaul. Ayden & Jess try hard, and have some great pieces, but slightly miss the mark each week with putting it all together. I would personally hate being in a dressing room with facing mirrors (don’t need to see hundreds of myself, lol)

    Love them or hate them, the double D’s are fricken awesome at what they do… Josh and Charlottes was lacking personality a bit and you are so right about the sofa back height… I’m on team D all the way as they are loud, confident but oh so good..

    Dd’s dressing room finishes let them down…also no blockout blind is not practical…clothes will fade without a blind…liked their bedroom….josh and charolette’s room was nice but needs art over the bed and possibly a little more soft colour on the walls…it was a little stark…didn’t like the remaining bedrooms at all

  • I liked Aiden and Jess’s though not too keen on the bed the room had personality and texture. Josh and Charlotte’s was way to bland for me, everything was the same color including the bed. The wall with the plantation shutters (which I love) bothered me the most I felt it need color or something on that wall

    Agreed. 6 cushions on the sofa and none on the white bed looked unbalanced. I see they had a grey throw on there for their interview this morning which broke it up a bit.
    Felt sorry for Jess who came up with the vaulted ceiling idea first and it was dismissed. Theirs didn’t seem luxurious enough for the main bedroom.
    I like Tim and Anastasia’s two way wardrobe idea. And the glass covered drawers.
    Dee and Darren amazing again. Love their style. Perfection!

    Love love love the double Ds room! Oh so gorgeous. I have purple (suede effects, don’t judge me, they were painted 10 years ago) walls and don’t think I can go back to a bright light bedroom. So enveloping and lovely! maybe I need to go navy next time. Just adore it. Love Charlotte and Josh but I agree something is missing indeed in this room. The judges were wowed and didn’t consider the negatives. Might look better in real life too!

    I totally disagree. I’m not an Aussie, I’m a Canadian in Sydney and I don’t want a dark roomline the D’s or t and a if the weather in Melbourne is as gloomy as people claim. Bright light colour to up my mood on a cold morning is just the ticket. I’m not sure why pillows and fluff wins over size and function. Won’t the buyers have their own junk to personalize these homes. The D’s bathrooms are dark, a cleaning nightmare and impractical. Except I did like the seat idea in the shower but those tiles, yuck!!! Shower screens that are to small and code failures in floor drainage. Size, light and good bones is what I value. That wall paper is delicate and well sorry Palmer it’s not practical for a family home where real people live.
    Rant over.

    Totally agree with you. D&Ds was a wow as usual. I have dark walls, now I must have that candle ensemble. Must! The rest, so so at best. Why are they all going so safe and 30 points for the bland white one? Why? Love white on white but there needs to be lots of texture. On a side note I hate a TV in the bedroom, would rather they spent the cash on good art instead.
