OMGoodness...I can't believe this one was still sitting in draft! The Block All Stars may be done and dusted for this year (hopefully there'll be another All Stars series in the future), but the rooms the couples produced as still drool worthy and inspiring. If the vast amount of home decor images on Pinterest are anything to go by, we're all looking for inspiration for our own homes. Looking back on these rooms after time has passed has reaffirmed to me how talented the All Stars really were. Let's do a quick round up of the living rooms.
Phil and Amity
I am so impressed with the spaciousness Phil and Amity created in their living and dining space, while still keeping it warm and cosy. The mezzanine level was an inspired addition the previous week, and now the entire space comes together and their vision makes complete sense. The soft furnishings they've selected make a beautiful and casual statement...don't you just want to curl up on that couch and watch the roaring fire! The pops of yellow really liven up the room too. Love it.
Mark/Dale and Duncan
Unfortunately I was not a fan of this space at all. I'm still trying to understand why this three bedroom home has the smallest living space. Perhaps how people spend their time at home in Bondi is different, and they don't spend as much time sitting on the lounge? As far as their styling goes, the pieces Duncan selected are too large for the space. This has been a common theme throughout the house, and it just doesn't work this time.
Josh and Jenna
Like Duncan and Dale, Josh and Jenna have created a small living space...the difference being, Josh and Jenna have selected furnishings that suit the room and don't overcrowd it. They can afford to have a small family room though, because they already have a formal living room elsewhere in the home. The feminine styling of this space is just beautiful, and it would be easy to change up if you wanted to, simply by swapping out the artwork and a couple of pillows.
Dan and Dani
Last, but certainly not least...Dan and Dani have delivered a dining and living space that would suit any family. Room for entertaining, room for kicking back and watching the television, and room to move around. Dan and Dani have stuck to their grey palette, applying it to their lowline lounge.
