After last week’s disappointing loss, and the low score they received the week prior, Brad and Lara are feeling despondent.
"I just don’t think [the judges] like our style," says Lara, pointing out that the winning rooms, so far, have all had modern finishes.
"We started wondering, do the judges want the modern look? We think the buyers round here want restored, period features. But it seems that's what is winning — every week!"
Halfway through their guest bedroom, the couple are hoping that by staying true to their original brief of marrying modern features with a period aesthetic, they'll come through with the goods. But it’s left them wondering.
"I said to Brad yesterday, 'Maybe we should do an ultra-modern room for the next one,'" Lara laughs. "But we won’t."
