The Block room reveals are always the ones we can’t wait to watch – especially this year as Stoke Fireplace Studio was excited to supply and install each house with a beautiful gas fireplace.
Just like The Block teams are a fabulous mixed bag of passion and personality, the living rooms feature a range of styles, themes and inspirations – from coastal colour schemes to 70’s nostalgia.
This year, The Block contestants visited Stoke in search of the perfect fire to help their living rooms come alive. Because nothing transforms a space quite like spark and flame – and these fireplaces do just that.
Read on to see the completed room reveals.
Ronnie & Georgia
Unfinished business bought 2017 fan favourites, Ronnie and Georgia back to The Block this year. Despite the couple’s feisty nature – their living room design is calm and pared-back.
White tones create a primed canvas for the pair to show off their personal design flair in this living and dining room. Clean lines balanced with art deco curves create depth and variety in the space.
Soft timber floors and an abundance of texture brings a softness to the room, brought to life with an Escea DS1400 Gas Fireplace.
Set into a white timber surround the fireplace sits pretty above an asymmetrical marble hearth. The linear form compliments the thematic use of clean lines – modern and minimalist, working seamlessly into Ronnie and Georgia’s design.
Mitch and Mark
Sydney’s favourite grandads, Mitch and Mark have returned to The Block as all-stars. Not afraid to speak their minds, they promised to bring their A-game to the show this year, and they certainly didn’t disappoint in the living room.
With a playful palette of pale pinks and greens – Mitch and Mark’s living room exudes a soft vibrance.
Parquetry floors and gold accents bring a touch of glam to the space, while statement art creates impact and interest.
Sitting above a floating timber hearth, the Escea DS1900 gas fireplace draws the eye, anchors the space and designates a cosy conversation corner beside the dining room table – clever use of a slightly smaller space.
Tanya and Vito
Melbourne parents Tanya and Vito made a loud entrance on The Block this year, and we’re happy to see them continue with the same infectious energy in their impressive living room design.
Their bold, sunken living room design is giving us all kinds of 70’s nostalgia, from the retro teal carpet to the rattan light shades.
Modernising the space and bringing it into the 21st century is an Escea DS1650 double sided gas fireplace. Visually connecting the living room and seating area, the fireplace is set into a beautiful white brick veneered surround – adding an additional element of texture to the eclectic nature of the space.
Josh and Luke
No strangers to reality TV, twins and Love Island alumni Josh and Luke joined The Block 2021 with the passion and charisma they are known for.
The twin’s living room features rich tones and textures, brass accents and decadent, plush furnishings give the space an opulent feel.
The space is open plan too, with each space flowing cohesively into the next.
From the sitting area to the open plan kitchen, the double sided fireplace subtly separates the two living zones while keeping a strong visual connection. The Escea DS1400 gas fire provides heat to both spaces, and its off-centre placement creates a statement feature in its own right too.
Kirsty and Jesse
Humble beginnings and hard work are the driving forces behind Kirsty and Jesse’s success on The Block this year – and it’s evident in their living room design.
This living room is full of coastal and Hampton’s style influences – from the timber panelled walls and exposed beams to the finishing touches of accessories and art. Ocean hues feature against an otherwise muted colour palette.
The addition of a three-sided Peninsula fireplace brings a design edge to the space, while providing warmth to the diners and those settling in for a night of movie-watching on the couch.
Each of the fireplaces featured in the living rooms was supplied and installed by Corey and the team at Stoke Fireplace Studio Melbourne.
