Week 2 of Reno Rumble, TV’s newest renovation show, is blowing us away! Like last week, the Blue team and Red team will each need to renovate a house in one week.
Part 1 of the house renovations were revealed last night — brace yourself for some truly fabulous bedrooms!
Despite a slip up from team captain Ben in organising (or lack of organising!) a floor polisher, this team really stepped up this week and only fell two points behind the Red team.
Tasked with creating a ‘Modern Scandinavian’ home, let’s see how they went…
Carly and Leighton
“Better than a magazine” said the judges and we’ve got to agree — this is one of the hottest kids bedrooms we’ve seen!
The monochrome colour palette really pops and the details in the wall decal, mix of textures and artwork give the room softness.
Michelle and Steve
“So warm and raw at the same time,” said Romy of this gorgeous master bedroom.
The artwork over the bed and the way they picked up the colours in those drool-worthy cushions got big ticks from us.
It was also clever how they used the space and ran a desk along the side of the room.
Ben and Jemma
Last week Romy felt they missed the brief in the guest bedroom but she loved what they did with their bedroom this week! The judges were impressed with the feeling of the room — the use of timber, soft colours, and that gorgeous Armadillo & Co rug.
Only criticisms were of the wardrobe and wall lights which didn’t really fit the brief.
Chris and Nick
These guys transformed what was a dark and cramped cave into an airy and light study.
While we felt they were more on the mark with their choice of furniture this week, the room didn’t have that same wow feeling as the other couples. The top of the landing was messy and could have been a great opportunity to get some custom cabinetry made to really show what they can do.
Romy felt that statement chair was wasted in this space and should be brought out into the living room, and Darren didn’t feel the bamboo floors were on brief.
Since Michael and Carlene left the show on Monday night, this team were at a disadvantage to finish the rooms with two fewer teammates. Of course they did amazingly to create a ‘Modern Vintage’ home…
Josh and Jenna
Seriously?! Just stop it you two! These guys are on fire and it’s great to see how far they’ve come since being Block contestants (even though they were amazing to start with!).
This dreamy bedroom WOWED us and the judges! All the details from the timber finish in the study nook to the floating timber shelves in the fire place were just perfection!
Kyal and Kara
Something we’ve always loved about Kyal and Kara is how they can create spaces that feel lived in and warm in the most ridiculous timeframes! The two really have a knack for layering, selecting unusual pieces and combining colours in a fresh way.
Last night they scored points from the judges for creating a room that felt original and a perfect fit for the home owner. Romy thought the room was perhaps a little dark and could be fresher but we loved the moodiness it created.
Jess and Ayden
Jess and Ayden transformed this boy’s bedroom from a drab green cramped space into a spacious and cool bedroom.
Exposing the fireplace and adding detailing to the ceiling were great moves! The high bunk bed and low ceiling fan had the judges worried it could be hazardous though and we would have loved to see the space ‘filled’ a little more (but we can see they opted to put a lot of that budget towards a new guitar).
Shared outdoor area
Great use of green screening to give this outdoor deck some privacy. The mix of pot plants, stands and hanging planters create interest in this space and the use of white throughout brings it all together and really make the greenery pop.
