Your Home and Garden - - Stage & Vanita -

An au­da­cious plan to rear­range the top floor to cre­ate a mas­ter bed­room and en­suite that spanned the full width of the house al­most paid off in week four, with the girls com­ing sec­ond at judg­ing. The team de­signed a bed­room that made the most of floor-to-ceil­ing views of Auck­land city with a custom blue­and-cop­per wall­pa­per fea­ture as a back­drop. His-and-hers cor­ri­dors lead to a wardrobe and split bath­room area dec­o­rated in a com­bi­na­tion of dark mar­ble and tex­tured white tiles that im­pressed the judges, who liked the qual­ity of the fix­tures and fin­ish­ings. How­ever, they ques­tioned the er­gonomics of the space as a whole and said the bed­room area should have been big­ger in com­par­i­son to the bath­room. But the team re­mained proud of their re­jigged lay­out. “We know it’s not ev­ery­body’s cup of tea,” says Yanita, “but we think it’s a great space.”

Cre­ate a built-in bed­head that ex­tends all the way up the wall by dec­o­rat­ing both bed­head and wall in a state­ment wall­pa­per or paint colour.
