The Block 2020 recap: Upstairs bedroom and bathroom reveals

Upstairs bedrooms and bathrooms were unveiled on The Block this week, and while one team deserved first place, the remaining rankings were harder to digest than full cream milk.

Let’s process some of the major issues …

JIMMY AND TAM CAME JOINT SECOND

While Jimmy and Tam delivered a bedroom that was better than some of their others, it was filled with too much joinery.

The bathroom walls are, in no uncertain terms, completely diabolical. I believe it’s a new paint colour called ‘Last at Auction’. Like most of the Bachelor in Paradise cast, it’s too loud and completely off-putting.

The advice from Shaynna around turning off potential buyers with divisive design is about five weeks too late. The large floor and wall tiles in the bathroom were rather beautiful though.

SARAH AND GEORGE CAME JOINT SECOND

While the colour palette, wallpaper and bed styling in Sarah and George’s bedroom are all successful, the
