With its 3.6m ceilings and traditional decorative features, Bomber and Mel's century-old home was ripe for a facelift to bring out its heritage charm.
Adam and Lisa's design for the South Australian couple's main bedroom aimed to address the House Rule of "style us junk-shop chic" while respecting the character of the original building.
"It had beautiful existing features such as ceiling roses (and) decorative wall vents but our zone was definitely in need of some TLC and a face lift to bring out its natural beauty," the pair said.
They kept the traditional features wherever possible, retaining the ceiling roses and incorporating new ones in the walk-in robe and ensuite.
"We also used raw pressed metal as a feature wall in the main bedroom and ceiling in the entry to try and address the junk-shop chic House Rule," they said.
The judges praised the use of mismatched vintage luggage as bedside tables as well as the room's colour palette, which includes dark carpet (Provincial Lane Premier Soft carpet in Cracker Jack, from Carpet Court) and neutral bedding from Freedom, with cushions from One Rundle Trading Co.
As for Adam and Lisa's favourite element in the room?
"We know it is not to everyone's taste but the pressed metal/chandelier combo was stunning in person and the old suitcases were a quirky inclusion," they said.
