This week's reveal is bittersweet...it's the last of the interior room reveals, which means The Block Fans v Faves is almost at an end! (insert pouty sad face)
The master bedroom and ensuite is my favourite reveal. Whenever I go to an open house, or display home, I always save the master suite until last. Why? It's the space that I would call my own...a haven if you will. It's where you imagine spending time with your partner, enjoying leisurely weekend sleep ins, spending Sunday snuggle time with the kids, and escaping from the pressures of the world.
Let's see how the Fans and Faves tackled their master bedrooms and ensuites this week...
Chantelle and Steve
The style starts right from the very moment you walk down the hallway to Chantelle and Steve's master suite. Chantelle and Steve lined their bright and airy walls with colour movie poster prints in simple black frames, giving this space a gallery feel.
A dressing table and bench seat flank the wall, giving the new owner more usable spaces in this master bedroom...a comfortable place to tie your shoes, read a book, or just while away the day.Alape Chrystalline basin before. It's definitely a talking point.
Crown grey oak tiles cover the walls and floor, while Castle Pyramid tiles were used on the feature wall. Judge Neale Whitaker commented that they were the best tiles he'd seen this season! Personally, I love that they have a brown undertone, allowing for a warmer grey colour scheme.
Like Chantelle and Steve, Kyal and Kara painted their hallway in a warm white, and adorned the walls with a beautiful series of Ellin Malin prints creating a gallery feel. That's where the similarities end. I really felt for Kyal and Kara last night. The judges were particularly harsh in respect of the master bedroom they created.
The judges also criticised their choice of chair. Shaynna Blaze commented that it would be better suited to a dentist's office. I disagree. I firmly believe that for a master bedroom to be successful, there needs to be a balance of the feminine and masculine. This is a shared space, and it can't be all feminine softness...your partner needs to feel at home as well.
Lastly, the judges commented that there shouldn't be a television in the bedroom. Where are these people living? We watch our bedroom television nearly every single night, and the news is on every single morning. If I were creating a new master bedroom, a television would be on the list of needs. What do you think?
The judges were full of praise for Kyal and Kara's ensuite, and with good reason. This space is gorgeous! The oversized basin with double black tapware gives this couple plenty of room to share this bathroom, and there's plenty of storage below for bath linens, eliminating the need for a linen cupboard.

This week, Alisa and Lysandra delivered another major wow-factor in their apartment...a void that opens the space between the kitchen/dining area and the upstairs bedrooms. This small 3x2m opening floods the floor below with loads of natural light...a major bonus considering the lack of windows below.

This week's winners!! This is my favourite space of the week. Brad and Dale thought completely outside of the box and installed a full-sized bath in the actual master bedroom. While some might think this is an odd design decision, just imagine how romantic this space could be. Light a few candles, pop the bubbly, and take a soak while looking at the sky. Beautiful.
