For­mer The Block: Glasshouse win­ner Shan­non Vos gives his ver­dict on the bath­room re­veals

The Block is back, baby, and it’s big­ger, bad­der and dirt­ier than ever. We may have heard it all be­fore, but this time around there is lit­er­ally way too much work to it into a work­ing week – and by ‘work­ing week’, we’re talk­ing around 120 hours in seven days.

This sea­son, the teams are tak­ing on the iconic Gatwick Ho­tel in the Mel­bourne bay­side sub­urb of St Kilda. Once a revered, up-mar­ket es­tab­lish­ment, it’s now a derelict half­way home ripe for a mas­sive trans­for­ma­tion.

The new Block­heads have cut their teeth on a spa­cious main bath­room it for a luxe, three-bed­room sea­side apart­ment. Here’s my take on what they came up with…

The hero:Ter­razzo-look loor tiles from Beau­mont Tiles in­ject the right amount of char­ac­ter with­out be­ing over­bear­ing, and they work su­perbly with the monochro­matic palette. The dropped ceil­ing runs a close sec­ond – the re­ferred light from it is soft and sub­tle.
