|I've been slow to post about The Block this week, mainly because all the action around here this week has been on the "Real Block" (our renovation). In an exciting development, the slab was poured today. I feel as though we've started the real work now. And the pool will be tiled next week, so I'll post some photos then. |
So back to Channel 9's TV Program, The Block. Are you feeling disappointed? I am. Even though I enjoy the show, the room reveals seem very bland. This week Sophie and Dale's master bedroom came in third place (photo above). Personally, I liked it the best as it continued their vintage style. And they used long, flowing curtains which upped the glamour. To be truthful, even though I love vintage and antique items, I felt the door bed head wasn't a good enough piece for a million dollar property. What did you think? Was it your cup of tea? I certainly liked the bird wall mural and thought that the french settee beneath it, added a glamorous touch (photo below).
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 home which is not modern, nor traditional, rather it's interesting. For a home that is unlike any other, I can assist with the selection of lights, tiles, mirrors, wallpaper, paint, furniture and fabric.
