Green round up of The Block
Despite the disappointing finish (for three of the couples anyway), I’ve really enjoyed this season of The Block. Initially I was disappointed it was apartments again (ie. no gardens!), but the terraces have been so amazing and inspiring crammed full of creative ideas. I’ve also loved the use of houseplants, flowers and indoor gardens, from Dee’s signature maiden hair ferns & lilies to Shannon & Simon’s potted cactus from Bedroom 1.
My favourite reveal was Max & Karstan’s final terrace which was nothing short of breathtaking. So clean, chic and contemporary and a great focal point for the apartment. The vertical honey panelling and white walls created a very scandi look but there is still enough green to keep it from being too stark and clinical – the vertical garden at ceiling height is genius. I also love the choice of furniture (could this be the table I’ve been looking for!) and the lighting is perfect, a beautiful feature on its own.
Here’s a round up of my favourite terrace designs and styled houseplants & flowers from The Block Glasshouse. Plenty of fab ideas to steal this season – I hope you’ve been taking notes!
