Tom and Sarah-Jane went into Kitchen Week on a high after 2 Room Reveals wins in a row. Like all teams, Sarah-Jane designed the kitchen layout and selected her state-of-the-art appliances in week two.
The judges were blown away upon entering the kitchen. "There are times when I wish there was a word that kind of meant 'wow times a hundred', because 'wow' just doesn't cut it," said Neale.
The words "phenomenal" and "breathtaking" were suggested as suitable alternatives to wow.
For Darren the kitchen and pantry was just luxury in every sense of the word, while Neale thought it was perfect.
"It's appropriate – it's not screaming 'Look at me'. But what it is screaming is come here I'm going to cook you the most amazing dinner, we're going to open bottles of wine and we're going to have the most amazing party," Neale said. Our Logan Weave Kitchen stools providing the perfect perch to do so!
"It just wraps itself around you, in the way Tom and Sarah-Jane's other rooms have been doing,"
Shaynna added, "This house has a pulsating heart and this kitchen is just beautiful."
The judges then scored perfect 10, consequently giving Tom and Sarah-Jane the ultimate winning room.
Dining and Living Reveal Week 8
"Wow! This is magnificent" said Neale as they walked in. The Judges were blown away by the scale of the room and height of the ceilings..
Shayanna said it was both elegant and rustic with a contemporary feel.
Unfortunattely the scale of the room and scope was too much for what Tom and Sarah Jane selected for the space, they should have had a larger sofa.
However our Logan Weave buffet was perfect ly styled and positioned for iin between the 2 timber columns.
Scott Cam suggested Rachel and Ryan add more artwork, wall sconces and a rug to help inject some personality and bring the room to life, to add a bit more country and a bit more eoomph. But the team brushed off the plea for more traditional styling in their home, content with their contemporary direction.
Rachel and Ryan did have a little country in their styling though, with our Lucas Round Timber stool, native flowers and ceramic pieces.
Kitchen Reveal Week 7
“Our kitchen is in keeping with our Contemporary Lodge style, says Rachel. We’ve kept everything quite pared back and designed it so that it is the heart of our home, seamlessly connecting with the living and dining spaces.”
“We wanted our kitchen to be a ‘chefs delight’ that makes meal prep, cooking, and cleaning as easy as possible, explains Rachel. We also wanted it to be spacious, offer plenty of storage, and to be warm and welcoming- a place you can just sit and feel comfortable and calm. Our Koko Kitchen stools are the perfect kitchen stool to do this.
This week finally Ryand and Rachel nailed it!
It’s been a long time coming, but from the moment the judges walk into Rachel and Ryan’s country lodge living and dining space, they finally see the couple’s vision. “I’ve got goosebumps!” Darren says. “They’ve done it!” Shaynna yells as she admires the floor to ceiling stone fireplace with a massive lounge wrapped in front, Satara Nolan Swivel Chairs expertly positioned to take in the winery views, exposed wooden beams highlighting an innovative Blackbutt ceiling that all combines to create what Neale sums up as a “minimalistic lodge” aesthetic that completes the kitchen and suits the home and region.
Finally Ryan and Rachel scored their first 10s and a very significant room win!
Striking and luxurious, Ankur and Sharon have produced an eye-catching kitchen that is the heart of their home featuring a bank of our New York Bar Stools with charcoal legs and vegan leather white seats.
They also styled their kitchen with a variety of Satara's reclamed timber home decor items
Congratulations to the runners up of week 2, Dylan and Jenny who created a truly stunning bathroom
Neal described it as "fresh, welcoming - and kind of timeless as he walked into Dylan and Jenny's light airy bathroom. Made even better Shayanna added, by the breath - taking view outside. The bathroom was enhanced with our Cork Stool, which is available in white and black.
After narrowly missing out last week, Dylan and Jenny had high hopes that their master bedroom and walk-in robe could land them at the top of the leaderboard.
intially the judges were surprised to be greeted by the spacious walk-in robe and impressed with their use of the unusally proportioned space in the bedroom.
"This is a nice bedroom, it's elegant" added Neale. Our Allegra Lounge Chair featured in one corner and our scented candles were also throughout.
Hallway Week 8
Congratulations Dylan and Jenny on finishing first in Hallway/Hellway Week.
'The first Hallway that actually worked as a Hallway' said Darren, while Shayanna actually said ' This is Hot!'
We were thrilled our Reeves Console took pride of place in the entrance area of this mammoth 40m long hallway.
If there was ever a week the boys could win, it was Kitchen Week.
After delivering a winning bathroom in the first week of the show, Omar and Oz had $250,000 worth of kitchen appliances up their sleeve.
Omar and Oz's dark and moody kitchen stood out from the other teams' kitchens and designed "honours the sophistication and design aesthetic of the V-Zug appliances.
This sultry and moody kitchen was perfectly enhanced with our New York Kitchen Stools
There was no denying it was still a show-stopping space, "This kitchen is going to sell this house," Darren said.
Lucky the contestants weren't competing against Scotty during Kittchen week, so many stunning modern country features to love.
But hows the custom Christian Cole Island block bench and our gorgeousely textured Float Hole Bar stools perched underneath!
Scotty's Kitchen was also styled with a number of Satara's reclaimed timber bowls and plates.
