Sophie and Dale's quirky styling choices mightn't be a hit with the judges, but have they won over one of their neighbours?
Lara, who's best known for her more traditional styling, joined Sophie on a trip to one of The Design Files' special pop-up stores to get some inspiration. The Design Files is a blog that covers Australian design in all its forms — from architecture and interiors to art, craft, graphic design and illustration — that also showcases designs in open houses and warehouse openings.
The visit was a confidence boost for Sophie, confirming that she's on the right track.
"If this is the standard of being creative and still being upmarket... I feel like this is where I am. I don't feel like I'm that far away," she says.
"It's nice to be here, I suppose, to realise that I'm not a crazy person and that I do have some idea of what I'm doing."
How will this affect Sophie’s bathroom styling, and will we see a quirkier Lara come Sunday night’s room reveal?
