Eliza and Liberty had an ‘empowering’ week and after some hard truths from Scott Cam himself, the girls decided to change their team up and introduce some new builders.
Their bold and brave choices this week definitely paid off in the judges’ eyes. The overall flow of their rooms and aesthetic choices were a massive hit.
“Look at that orange oven!” - Neale.
“This is the correct way to do an island bench” - Darren.
“This is incredible… We’ve got a bar, double fridge, storage for days” - Shaynna.
“You’ve got everything you need and pretty much where you want it” - Neale.
“They’ve taken butler’s pantry in here really back to what butler’s pantries were originally, a pit stop to put things out of sight” - Neale.
Week 6 - Master bedroom and walk-in robe
Eliza and Liberty described this week as ‘confronting’ and the orientation of their master bedroom threw them off. But the ladies’ floor plan proved to be a winner for the judges. They did note however, they were hoping the girls would experiment a bit more with their colour palette.
“That artwork, that’s hot” - Shaynna.
“They do need to think outside of the palette of entural, white, rust and blue because that’s literally in every single room we’ve seen thus far” - Darren.
“Buyers will look at this floor plan and I don’t think they’re going to be able to fault it… They may not win a room but it doesn’t mean that they cannot win The Block” - Marty.
Week 5: Living and Dining
The week was ‘shattering’ for Liberty and Eliza, and ‘overwhelm’ seemed to be a common theme for them. With emotions running so high for the week and the girls were not expecting a whole lot of love from the judges, but to their surprise the rooms were a big hit for the three of them.
“A perfect, elegant, contemporary dining space” - Neale.
“This is a perfect, but timeless dining space” - Neale.”
“It is so connected to the lounge room… I’m actually blown away” - Shaynna.
“This space is probably one of the most sophisticated spaces they’ve done thus far” - Darren.
“This is the most generous floorplan we’ve seen today” - Darren.
The Block's Eliza and Liberty were taking on the largest downstairs bathroom for the week and the only one with a bath. However, it was the moss wall that was the biggest talking point. While the judges felt the bathroom itself was near perfect, Marty went so far as to label the moss wall a 'sheer disaster.'
Week 4: Downstairs Bathroom
"What is that... I am not grabbing that whatsoever"- Shaynna.
"I just don't understand it, I can't get my head around it" - Marty.
"It's not just the moss, I'm actually feeling quite a lot of things wrong with the functionality of this space" - Shaynna.
"It's growing on me... acoustically it has benefits, it filters the air" - Darren.
Week 3: Work From Home
"It is an improvement from what we saw last week" - Darren.
"I feel like they've listened to the feedback and walking in here it does have a really nice feel" - Marty.
"You have to think about the story you are trying to tell, not just with the room but with each area within the room" - Shaynna.
Week 2: Guest Bedroom
"Pool appropriate flooring, pool adjacent space, it's a living space but also you can sleep in, with office space so you can run a business or work from home..." - Darren.
"The finesse and the styling it seems very juvenile" - Marty on their wallpaper choice.
"Are they throwing the kitchen sink in here?" - Shaynna.
"I think the styling is so bad that had it had been empty I would have been happier" - Marty.
Week 1: Guest Bathroom
"Love that [the tiles], that wall tile just lets the floor tile sing and I think it's a really super good choice" - Darren.
"The feeling in here is divine and it's got to do with the beautiful colour palette, the very soft contemporary feel this is, which is think is gorgeous" - Shaynna.
