Each month we ask one of the Blocc team members to tell us a little bit more about themselves, so we can start to get to know the person behind the fabulous interior designs. This month we’d like to introduce you to Chloe!

Who has influenced you most when it comes to how you approach your work? My colleagues are my main influencers.
What behavior or personality trait do you most attribute your success to and why? I am very organized which allows me to work more efficiently which enables me to have more time to be creative with my designs.
What was your first job? Working in River Island which I loved as I had the opportunity to be creative styling the mannequins in the windows and doing the merchandising around the store.
What led you to this career? I always knew I wanted to be an interior designer. When I was 10 years old I used to move my bedroom around constantly to try and make it look better and to give it a fresh look.

What advice would you give to your teenage self? To believe in myself more and that I could be a designer. I didn’t go to university until later into my twenties as I wasn’t confident as a teenager.
What’s something you saw recently that made you smile? My two year old son when he comes out with new words or sentences that I’ve never heard him say.
What’s your favorite way to unwind after a busy day? A glass of gin and tonic and a bit of reality TV!
