THE BLOCK 2023: KIDS BEDROOMS WEEK
Hello, Blockheads! We know you've been eagerly following all the thrilling moments each week, just as we have.
This week was no different, filled with perfect-scoring rooms judged by all three judges, a touch of drama, and an abundance of stunning wallpapers.
What made it even more exciting was that it was Kid's Bedroom Week!
If there's one place where creativity and personality can truly shine, it's in kids' bedrooms.
Fortunately, we had the pleasure of joining in on the excitement this week, with a few of our pieces featured on the show.
In this recap, we'll take a closer look at three rooms from the week. Keep scrolling for more details!
KYLE AND LESLIE'S BOY'S ROOM
A departure from the rest of the house's style, this room unquestionably exudes a basketball and boy's room vibe! With its blue walls, inviting details, and, as Judge, Marty Fox, aptly puts it, "fifteen" basketball elements, the room truly embodies its theme.
To introduce a refreshing contrast and alleviate the strong theme, we have our Vanilla Cream Boucle Bean Bag Lounger. Just picture being a kid and spending your entire day in this comfortable spot, chilling out!
While the room boasted a marketable size and finish, the judges couldn't help but sense a disconnect from the rest of the house. They were eager to see the entire room elevated to a higher standard.
One of their particular pet peeves was the posters adorning the wall. As Judge Shaynna Blaze wisely pointed out, "I would put those in a frame."
Now, let's explore some art pieces that we believe could truly elevate the overall look while remaining in harmony with the theme!

KYLE & LESLIE'S GIRL'S ROOM
What could have potentially saved them this week is this room. Inspired by a tween girl, Shaynna Blaze was genuinely impressed by the overall sense of "light and brightness," with floral accents and soft green tones.
With its excellent, spacious layout and featuring the distinctive curves that are a trademark of house 1, the judges were notably impressed by the duo's style and the overall coherence throughout the home.
As Judge Darren Palmer pointed out, "the use of green is non-gender-specific, which I believe is exceptionally clever in all aspects," and we couldn't agree more!
In addition to the curves, the three floral prints positioned above the wardrobe beautifully filled the space, enhancing the overall cohesion not only within the room but also throughout the entire home.
We adore how these three pieces harmoniously match and effortlessly bring together all the colours of the other elements in the room.

ELIZA & LIBERTY’S KIDS ROOM
Embracing a more child-friendly ambiance, the room boasts soft yellows, earthy elements, and delicate artworks—a dreamy adventure that would captivate any child!
The judges were enamored with the room's elevated and well-grounded appearance, from the thoughtful use of wallpapers and the overall layout to the meticulous attention to detail.
One noteworthy detail is the addition of colourful cushions, including our Jungle Linen cushion
