Theresa is passionate about classic decor 

Theresa's decor philosophy is to start with the basics and build layers to create a beautiful collected look. Functionality should be built into the beauty so every space reflects your personality and that of your family so that it is truly liveable. She adds that where possible, you should take your time with your decor and remember the space itself will dictate what styles work in it too. 

It is important that you enjoy living in your home. Your space should reflect your personality.

Its classic wood frame together with tufted upholstery detail makes  it relevant to any interior style to create  a beautiful sanctuary.

I love that this Industrial-style bookshelf is soft enough to fit in both classic or contemporary schemes. With five shelves, it has plenty of space to display books, decor objet and family photos, making it a lovely choice for your family room or study area.

I love the scale and comfort of this sofa. More on the casual side than strictly formal, it's wonderful for cosy, lazy days. Dress it up with scatters, throws and of course family and your beloved pets!

As a team, they inspire each other. Their different personalities bring a variety of perspectives and interpretations to the products they showcase.

"The Block & Chisel product itself brings inspiration to our settings so interpreting these in the retail space becomes a creative and artisanal experience,"adds Theresa Wagner, Visual Merchandising Manager. 

Olwethu loves colourful interiors

Olwethu believes adding colour can do wonders to a look. Her biggest tip to our clients is that it's okay to mix and match styles, colours, textures and more by going for a mix of high quality vintage and modern styles with one or two custom pieces thrown in.

Add smart style to your poolside entertaining  with the Bali Floating Tray. It will soon become  an entertainment essential.

I love the vintage-style shape of this sofa. Clad in an apple-green velvet it becomes a juicy burst of colour in your living room. Tone it down with timeless blue and white.

Lebohang loves to mix and match decor styles

The "more is more" decor philosophy has grown on Lebohang. She observes that everything you use in a setting counts, no matter how small. She loves working with colours, patterns and textures to create decor magic.

I believe in adding a bit of va va voom to your decor with beautiful colours, patterns and textures, I draw inspiration from nature, art and great craftsmanship.  - Lebohang Mokoena

"I love how we can mix classic and modern styles together, and also how we can create a neutral setting with the big pieces and then add splashes of colour with accessories."

If you can use it in three different places in your home, then you know it’s a good piece and that’s my sentiment with ginger jars, the best and most versatile accessory. You can style them in countless ways and with any decor style as they create a beautiful focal point.

We love mixing classic and modern styles together, and also creating a neutral setting with  style staples and then adding splashes of colour with accessories.

Changing trends, new products and of course, varied interpretations of both mean the team's settings always look exciting and different and since they change up the stores weekly, it's worth popping in regularly to get your fill of inspiration. Their most important challenge is a simple one: to ensure their settings offer you real-life inspiration for living beautifully.
