According to Milou Ket a highly regarded international trend forecaster in a recent furnitureonline.com.au post we are looking for comfort, homeliness, cheer and warmth in our interior spaces. In a previous blog I mentioned interior design and happiness and how the newlyweds Dale and Sophie on the TV series The Block 2012 appear to have captured this in the rooms they have created.
This week the couple won the room reveal for their funky playful design. The child’s bedroom they created for the challenge house achieved a perfect 10 from every judge. I must admit this week I would have given first place to Dan and Dani for their bathroom and courtyard projects. Dale and Sophie’s room would make an ideal room for small children. They have placed synthetic grass and tables and chairs on the ceiling but how long would the novelty last? It could be a real problem when you want to change the design of the room. Dan and Dani’s bathroom and courtyards are up to date and unlikely to date quickly.
We finally watched the last of the block when it was repeated the next day. Wow what a result. It is amazing all the houses sold for such good prices at auction in this property climate. I have heard some homes in Melbourne are selling for less than they were purchased.
To continue some of Milou’s forecasts
Milou Ket has a lot more to share she will be speaking at the International Industry Seminar Series at Decoration + Design in Melbourne on 19th July 2012. I hope to get there.
