Love it or Leave it: Week 8 on The Block

Happy Wednesday everyone! I hope your week has been as exciting as mine....more on that later! But for now, lets get stuck into this weeks Love it or Leave it for week 8 on The Block. This week was outdoor week so the contestants revealed their terraces. They also had a redo room but I'm not going to bother with that. If you want to check them out, see the link at the bottom of this post to head over and have a look.

Kyal and Kara's Terrace WINNER
Love it....I think that Kyal and Kara did a fantastic job on their upstairs terrace this week. The pop of colour in the cushions is amazing and really livens up the area. I think their furniture selection is very good and I love the fire pit in the middle of the room for those cold winter nights. They have made it so you can entertain all year round.
Leave it....Whilst their upstairs is just fantastic I think they failed with downstairs. I like the table and choice of chairs but that's about it. People are looking to pay around $2 million for these apartments, the small BBQ and the ugly hose on the wall is, in my opinion, just not good enough.

Brad and Dale's Terrace 
Love it....I think the boys did a good job this week too. I like the tiled wall upstairs and the real entertainment aspect of it. The planter boxes downstairs are nice too.
Leave it....I think they probably should have added more furniture. They have a table and chairs upstairs which is great but that's kind of it. I think a nice outdoor lounge upstairs would have been nice. I know they are all running out of money so that is probably most of the problem but I'm sure they could have found some furniture somewhere.

Alisa and Lysandra's Terrace 
Love it....I also really like what the girls did this week both upstairs and downstairs. The greenery is fantastic, the furniture selection is really nice and I even like the round chair they have included downstairs. I think they have a winning apartment here!
Leave it....Now I get the whole issue with the violation of building codes, so I think they should have fixed that before the reveal but I also don't really understand the grey esky looking boxes upstairs. I'm not sure exactly what they are but think they could have been left out.

Chantelle and Steve's Terrace 
Love it....I think Chantelle and Steve did a lovely job of their downstairs terrace. The bench seat and table selection is lovely. And the wood fire oven is a nice addition, would have been better if it was built in, but still a nice addition. I also liked the stools they used upstairs, some funky coloured industrial stools are always great.
Leave it....I don't understand however why they went with the ply wood on the walls upstairs and also the day bed. Little confusing and not their best choices.

The auctions are next week for these fabulous apartments so I can't wait to share those details with you all. However until then the contestants are renovating two houses of fans of the show. I will share some before and after photos with you once they have finished.

Hope you all enjoy the rest of your week.
