For Week 1 on The Block the contestants took on their first challenge. Teams built a structure based on the iconic Melbourne Brighton Beach Boxes, which will be their bedrooms for the season. Perth contestants Luke & Jasmin created a coastal interior for their brightly coloured beach box which features our Avery Palm Bedhead.

Judge Neal Whitaker liked the coastal touches of the interior: "It's just these little touches like you're greeted by the sand outside and then you come in here and there's beautiful touches like the shell pendant, the rattan bedhead and the VJ panelling — seriously it had me at all of those things."
