Jamie and Hayden’s controversial kitchen

Article by Homes to Love

Jamie and Hayden from The Block NZ: Villa Wars unveiled their black kitchen on last night’s episode and were met with disapproval from the judges and viewers alike

With black cabinetry, black polished floorboards and a graffiti mural splashback, the kitchen unveiled by Jamie and Hayden was never going to be everyone’s cup of tea. Hayden described the theme as “urban street”. “We’re going to be bold – we want it to have shock factor,” he said of the scheme.

“It’s just horrible. I hate that splashback, it’s hideous,” said judge Jason Bonham. “Be bold? How about be tacky!”

Engaged couple Jamie and Hayden have been running with a monochromatic scheme of black and white throughout the competition and the kitchen is no exception. According to Jamie, she pitches “crazy and wacky” ideas and Hayden breaks them down into more logical and workable ones. Their style is simple but sophisticated contemporary.
