Reno Rumble 2016 has already come to an end. Is it just me or does it feel like this series went crazy fast? In today’s post I’m showing you three of the best spaces from this season’s room reveals. I wonder if you’ll agree with me.

When I hosted last month's Tile & Style workshop with The Block's Kyal and Kara, one of the things I discovered was just how many things you can do with tiles.Not that it should really come as a surprise, of course, but feature tiles really can transform a space like no other material can. I filmed a recent video on feature tiles if you'd like to check it out here, but this post it not all about me - it's about these amazing new tiles from stylist Tim Neve.

It was such a mixed bag of rooms this week at The Blocktagon that it's hard to pinpoint a team who were deserving to win. With three spaces to show - study, laundry and powder room - I found most of the teams got some spaces bang on-point while others fell completely flat.As always, I have a different opinion to what the judges had to say, so let's take a look at the five teams' rooms and check out what worked and what didn't.

I don't always agree with the judges on The Block and last night's episode was no different. I was very pleased to see that Whitney and Andy finished their space this time around, although as I said in last Monday's post, I thought that they should have won for their bedroom last week regardless. It showed such promise!

What a week it's been in Block land, with shattering shower screens, bickering Blockheads and Luke claiming Neale is "full of sh*t". It's high-drama this season and it's only week two!Let's take a look at this week's Blocktagon bathroom reveals - from highest score to lowest score - and sort out what was working and what was woeful from the five spaces up for judging.

Good golly Miss Molly. I know I saw this every week, but weren't last night's Reno Rumble kitchens the best yet? Both featured the most stunning skylights, which meant sunshine flooding into the spaces. Pull up a stool and pour me a coffee in either of these Freedom Kitchens - I'm sold!

I used to go batty for an industrial interior. I loved the exposed brickwork, I loved the rough textures and I adored the masculinity inherent in these sorts of spaces. Then I went off them for a while, as you tend to do with design styles and schemes.Last night's Reno Rumble reveals had me hooked on industrial again, thanks to the divine kitchen designed by Carly and Leighton below. Of course, I'm showcasing both of the sublime Freedom Kitchens that were unveiled by the teams, but there's no confusion over which one's my fave!
