This week we enjoyed the luxury of ensuite bathroom reveals. And luxury is an understatement – this week all of the couples delivered ensuite bathrooms that went above and beyond. There’s something special about creating a master suite with ensuite and walk-in robe that tends to make designers go that extra mile and it is always a huge pleasure (and a little painful) to watch. It makes my heart yearn for a master suite like no other with a walk in wardrobe Carrie Bradshaw would be jealous of and an ensuite I’d never want to leave. But for now those dreams remain just that while we get to enjoy the reality of The Block’s exquisite ensuites…
Josh & Charlotte – Delivered the winning bathroom and it was well deserved. The combination of timber with matt black and crisp white was well received and proved that elegance is found in the details. Beautiful plantation shutters that are a feature throughout Josh & Charlotte’s apartment were used along an entire wall giving the space an abundance of light. I absolutely loved all the details and the simply styling – setting the scene of a luxurious and relaxing space.
Tim & Anastasia – Delivered a really beautiful bathroom that fell short due to the detail of the finishing. I loved the architecture of this room with the nib wall by the toilet and the inset shelves for the shower and vanity. The marble subway wall in the shower is a beautiful, yet subtle feature that is elegant and timeless. And lets not forget about that bath sitting pretty with a flatscreen television for relaxation to the max.
Jess & Ayden – I really agreed with Neil for this ensuite and thought it was a brilliant modernisation of a retro look. The honeycomb flooring was a very smart way to tie together all three bathroom spaces (with the others featuring the marble mosaic). I loved the combination of this with the hand-made vanity and timber flooring in the shower. I think Jess did a great job with styling of the bathroom and of all the couples, I really loved their bath style and setting. The only item in this space that threw me was the pendant light – which I thought was unnecessary.
Darren & Deanne – This week Darren & Deanne closely mirrored that of the design for their first bathroom. Making use again of the black and white colour scheme with screened off wet area, double vanity and linen cupboard. They really nailed the design here and the addition of a seat in the shower is genius! Looking back to the first bathroom, I feel this one is a little more refined with the colour palette, yet still ties in beautifully to their other wet areas. If we’re me completing this bathroom I like to think I would have done the same but with a softer colour palette in shades of coffee and taupe with crisp white.
