A Post from our Provincial Styles website –
If you were anything like me you closely followed the epic journey of all four couples from The Block Fans v Faves! As you all know I was ecstatic that Chantelle and Steve used one of our customised Hermes cushions in their winning dining/living room so naturally I was behind them all the way, through the ups and downs. They pulled off a win with a ground-breaking (and Block-breaking) sale of $2.47 million, netting them a life-changing profit of $636,000, making them the overall winners of The Block, taking out an additional $100,000 in prize money!
I asked Chantelle a few questions about her time on The Block:
PS/ First and foremost Congratulations! Has it sunk in yet that you are the winners of Fans v Faves?
C/ Yes and no – We worked so hard and so flat-out on The Block – you just never stop – so in some ways, the actual build feels like a whirlwind that we can barely remember. So it is surreal to think that we A) Got selected through thousands to be on the show, B) Finished and C) Won. Insane.
PS What was the hardest week on The Block for the two of you?
C/ The hardest week by far was master, WIR, ensuite and MASSIVE hallway, for an obvious reason… It was a HUGE week! I mean, in some weeks we were required to “just” do one wet area (bathroom) and that was hard enough. We truly had to give EVERYTHING we had for every second of the day, and BOY it took it’s toll on our existence… But we are STOKED we gave it our all, as most people who inspected our property fell in love with those spaces upon entering.
C/ If the opportunity ever arrived we would consider it, but for now we are just so proud of our achievements thus far. We worked so hard, through one of the most challenging experiences of our lives, and we are so grateful to have come out the other side together with a win, a great prize and an amazing experience.
