It’s living and dining room week and THANK GOD because if we had to sit through another bedroom renovation I’d put my head through a freshly wallpapered wall.
It’s also the week that nearly broke Sticks and Wombat and please judges no. Be kind to them. These two are our country’s chosen ones. I know they’d eat timber for dinner if it was an option but just… be nice, okay?
Speaking of Sticks and Wombat...
Sticks and Wombat, 20/30
I can't bring myself to recap what the judges said about the boys' room, so instead I'll just give you the quotes and you guys can make your own mind up:
On the boxy things surrounding the TV: “They look like ugly and complicated Tetris pieces which don’t really fit.”
On the furniture: “They need to take these couches back and they need to redesign their furniture layout.”
On the full room: "This room is totally lacking in any warmth. It has no soul.”
On their design skills: “I want to shake them and say stop.”
On their... personalities: “[They need to] sit down and rethink who they are and bring it all together."
Brutal. For what it's worth (I am a non-interior designer, non-aesthetically gifted writer person) I thought it was cool.
