Welcome to another reveal on The Block Sky High! This week, the couples were tasked with designing their guest bedrooms and ensuites...the last of the sleeping quarters for their apartments. Being a guest room, the design of these spaces could be a little more flexible...this didn't mean a drop in quality at all though! I kind of wish they'd started with the guest rooms and worked their way up to the master bedrooms so that they well and truly had their design style sorted out! Read on to see the room reveals...
This week's winners, scoring an outstanding 29.5 out of 30! The judges were seriously impressed with Madi and Jarrod's guest room, and you can see why. The sunny lemon, white, and soft grey colour scheme is thoroughly welcoming, and just perfect for a third bedroom.
Ubabub Sundae print to add serious impact to their space, mimicking the wall colour, and accessories. I just love the sorbet colours (no pun intended) with the mustard punch.

Alisa and Lysandra
The twins delivered a beautiful light-filled bedroom this week. Like Madi and Jarrod, Alisa and Lysandra included a small study nook, but that's where the similarities end. In a surprise design move, the twins have installed wardrobes either side of the bed. The judges mentioned that they thought this would close in the room, but instead it made really great use of this long bedroom. The pillow headboard is a really nice touch , and is a great contrast to the timber feature wall.
Lola pendant light brings the timber features of the bedroom, through to the bathroom, warming up this classic black and white space.

Bec and George
Bec and George chose to present their guest room as a home office with a day bed, making this a stand out room this week. I love it when one of the couples thinks outside the square and presents something different. Bec and George rejigged their challenge bedhead so that it suited the length of their single bed. While it's probably not finished off as well as it could have been, the concept is interesting.
Library Wallpaper along the length of the room. Personally, I feel the colours of the wallpaper are too warm, and clash with the cool colours of the bedding. The Library Wallpaper is also available in stone, and I think that colour way would have worked better.

Trixie and Johnno
Like Bec and George, Trixie and Johnno included their challenge bedhead in their guest room...after a little finessing of course. The rejigged bedhead is just gorgeous! I love how it's slightly asymmetrical, and brings in the black detail of the window frames. The timber shelf/desk extending along the full length of the wall, is simple, understated, and elegant.

Kim and Matt
I was so hoping that Kim and Matt would include this headboard in their bedroom this week. After the drama of the challenge bedhead being thrown away, I thought they may have been pressured into adding something substandard. The way they have mixed the coloured hexagons on the bedhead is just genius. It takes a serious eye for design to create a random pattern that works this well. Kim and Matt have made great use of the space surrounding the bedroom window, installing a tonne of shelving, storage, and very usable desk space.
Week 1 to do over again, now that they've really come into their style!

Edited to add...
A reader left a comment regarding the frosted glass doors Kim and Matt have used throughout their apartment, and here's why...
This week's guest bedroom reveals were outstanding, and the couples should be congratulated. After four weeks of bedrooms and bathrooms, I would wager they are busting to get on with the rest of the apartment and try something different. Next week...kitchens, pantries, and bars!! I can't wait to see what the designs the couples come up with for the heart of the home.
So tell me...who's bedroom do you love the most this week?
