Stalking reality TV episode 3

Posted on Tue, 23 Sep 2014 by midcenturyjo

One more from the TV show The Block. Michael and Carlene’s apartment features warm exposed brick walls, slick kitchen and a generally panned main bathroom, the weak link in an otherwise well resolved space. Link here while it lasts.

P.S. You can find the remaining 2 apartments for sale here and here.

Natashia says:

This is probably my favourite out of the five (I'm obsessed with the show, a little too much), but my god I hate that main bathroom – the layout is just ridiculous, don't know what they were thinking! I also don't get the whole obsession with dark bathrooms on the show.. On every series there have been so many dark bathrooms.

Blanders says:

That bathroom is atrocious. No wonder it got panned. The white textured herringbone tile is the only decent thing there.

But, not having really watched the show, I hadn't realised just how spectacular the copper wall from Apartment 2 (Chris & Jenna) is! They deserve to win on that feature alone!

Kimberly says:

I was really enjoying the tour, especially the lighting, until this last bathroom. What in the world – Tripping Hazard, anyone? Seriously who wants to shower at the top of steps without a railing? Its a death trap. Plus the drainage would be an issue…it looks like there is a linear drain at the bottom of the steps right?

Coco says:

Wow, there are some great design solutions in all of the entries for this show. I particularly liked the glass panel over the white marble in the second bathroom. Might seem like overkill but I think it's a great way to keep the marble looking good. I'd like to try it on a marble backsplash behind a stove. Would make clean up a breeze!
Speaking of overkill, what I don't understand – and it may just be my mistake, but – are there 4 ovens in that kitchen? I saw the same feature in one of the other kitchens you featured and I can't imagine who needs that many ovens. What am I missing here?
