Polly and Waz (photo above) also chose a light coloured paint for their exterior (Wattyl's Etheral White) and matched it with a darker grey trim (Woodland Grey). It looked great but I would have painted the front shutters white (like Josh and Jenna next door).
Rod and Tania continued their boutique hotel style this week and chose a charcoal paint (Wattyl's English Castle) for the exterior with black trim. I like how they've put a spotlight on the name of the house, Banstead Cottage.
Rod and Tania won the best exterior this week with this backyard which featured an outdoor spa and outdoor kitchen (photo above). They've really added some expensive gadgets to this house like the spa, remote control blinds and wine fridge. It's going to be interesting to see if the buyers add a premium for these inclusions on auction day.
Katrina and Amie painted their terrace house a dark grey colour as well (they chose a custom paint which is similar to Wattly's Ironstone). They also had a fire pit in the backyard. See more photos of their fire pit and out door room at AM's blog. My phone is going to be off the hook on Sunday night, as I'll be watching the final episode of The Block. Who do you think is going to win?
About Spots and Stripes
When I began my third renovation, I swapped the corporate ladder for the rusty paint ladder and began my website and blog, Spots and Stripes, which chronicles the restoration of our 'Queenslander' in Brisbane. I'm also an interior editor helping clients to create a customised home. Let me know if I assist you with the selection of lights, tiles, mirrors, wallpaper, paint, furniture and fabric.
