Here are a few highlights from this week's store layout

"We want to show customers that they can be brave with their decor choices and really achieve some outstanding looks in the process."

Welcome to the jungle

Bold prints and vibrant greens, like emerald and jade, continue to be a top trend in 2017. Bring the outdoors in with tropical print scatter cushions and leaf-inspired ceramic dishes. Complete this look with gilded side tables and candle holders for an opulent final touch.

Fifty shades of autumn

"Even if the rest of your house is neutral, you can instantly transform a space by adding a brightly coloured sofa."

With autumn around the corner, colours like orange and red add a welcome warmth to your home. Yolandi recommends the luxurious Made-to-Order sofa collection as a way to incorporate this colour into your decor. Reds and oranges go beautifully with natural wood, so consider adding a few brightly coloured accessories to your bookshelf to create a personalised feature wall.

The Gia Sideboard is Yolandi's pick of the week. "I love the texture and colour of this Asian-inspired sideboard. It's such a statement piece! You don't have to worry about matching it to the rest of your room as it's a stand-alone piece that doesn't try to blend in."

Our collection of Asian-inspired distressed sideboards come in a range of colours, including the yellow Yoko sideboard and blue Miya sideboard.

Luxe bedroom

"Bold lines and colours can still achieve a sense of calm in a bedroom," Yolandi points out.

Create a luxurious bedroom sanctuary to escape to with lavish black and gold. Choose from a wide selection of headboards and complete the look with a functional bedend to create extra storage. You can also update your current bedroom by adding a few colourful scatter cushions. All our cushions are specially made for Block & Chisel using quality fabrics and 100% down inners. We also offer a wide range of ornaments and bedside lamps that you can introduce to create a personalised space with lots of character.
