After 6 seasons of being a supplier of rugs into The Block you would think that we would have a fair idea of what the contestants will need, but no!
New Contestants, with new ideas and inspirations while located in Hampton East, back into metro with large but not oversized residential homes.
Kyle and Leslie (House 1) had space issues to solve which were not going to happen this week. With underestimating the size of the furnishings going in the area, it made placement of the dining table and the living space not work properly. I would be guessing this will be a redo area for them later in the competition. Normal placement of the rug, was not achievable due to the overlapping of the dining table so they decided to swing it around in the other direction. This week they choice was the Magic Linen Rug in a 250 x 350cm, textural and neutral, just as they like it.
Kristy and Brett (House 3), simplicity, light and bright was their brief with texture. That was a no brainer with our Boucle Ivory Rug 300 x 400cm, hand made from quality wool by superb craftsman.
Darren enthusiastically proclaimed that this room was exceptional and Neale chimed in, describing it as ideal for catering to the future pool area outside. Shaynna, while expressing some reservations about the lighting plan, couldn't deny the room's inviting ambiance and rich colour palette, ultimately declaring it a space filled with plenty to adore.
Steph and Gian (House 4) have chosen a unique style of mixing Scandinavian with Japanese called "Japansi" A soft inviting and earthy colour pallette.
The Vincent Rug with its dusty shades made a gorgeous addition of texture and airiness to this area whilst bringing continuity to their styling.
Eliza and Liberty (House 5) had a huge space to fill and I mean Huge!
In their Living space the girls had already chosen their lounge in this amazing bright rusty orange colour, plus their art work in the Dining area.
Our aim was to link the areas so the girls went for the Magic Spice Rug in a 300 x 400 cm size to help fill some of the space and keep the proportions of the space in scale.
The sisters went on to add a fire place in the middle of the living space, creating an intentional entertainment area.
Budget was cutting low for this area, but they presented it well with a simply setting to lead to the imagination of what it can be.
Using our Alfresco Jute Rug, they intentionally chose this rug for durability and again to link all the areas with a common accent colour.
