Your Home and Garden - - Stage & Vanita -

Liv­ing-room week marked a cri­sis for Team Orange, who earned their low­est score yet and found them­selves with 80 per­cent of their budget blown mid­way through the competition. The judges didn’t like the way they’d di­vided up their space us­ing a sofa and book­shelf, but the op­por­tu­nity to make good ar­rived straight away with ‘do-over week’. De­spite a mas­sive work­load which in­cluded mak­ing a start on their stair­well and two days off site mak­ing over the I Have a Dream char­i­ta­ble trust’s HQ in Whangarei, Stace and Yanita pushed them­selves to break­ing point to de­liver a win­ning room. A dif­fer­ent couch, a cosy read­ing cor­ner, a sleek study area and a more open ar­range­ment of fur­ni­ture won over the judges, who said the re­freshed space “worked a lot bet­ter” and was “a lot more warm and wel­com­ing”.
