The Challenge

In one weekend (18-19 August 2018), nine lucky Canberrans went head-to-head to decorate zones of the house and transform it into a stylish home.

While many of the teams came armed with styling experience in Canberra and nationally, some teams were chosen for their passion and creative applications. Their day jobs range from yoga teachers to graphic designers, mums and dads, interior decorators, town planners and public servants.

With the help of IKEA Canberra, teams selected their furniture and styling items and completely decorate their zones in just one day.

They had to draw on all their creative talents, determination and strategy to produce breathtaking reveals that impress not only potential home buyers, but three high profile judges too.
