Christmas decorating looks: Matalan

October 22, 2010

Ever wonder how the celebs decorate their homes at Christmas? Well if you want to know EXACTLY which decorations, head to Matalan where their celebrity ‘influences’ have designed everything from decorations to  gifts!

Have a look at these two Christmas decorating looks and see if you can guess which is by the ultra flamboyant, Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen and which is by the quintessentially English actress, Jane Asher. It’s a toughie!!

Can I come in? John Mayer’s New York pad

October 11, 2010

I imagine I feel about as inspired by John Mayer‘s home as Jennifer Aniston feels about his relationship skills. I was expecting it to have a little bit more personality and warmth, but instead it seems he’s paid the Armani Casa design team to create a grown up pad which although contains absolutely STUNNING furniture pieces and furnishings, doesn’t really say much about the musician, himself.

Am I being too harsh?

Check out Apartment Therapy for more pictures of his home, as featured in Elle Decor.

Getting excited about Transformer 3!

I love the Transformers movies and could look at sneak peaks and spoilers all day, BUT I’m no slacker, I wouldn’t DREAM of spending my day do anything that wasn’t related to the world of decorating…

… so here’s a tour around Transformer 3 director, Michael Bay‘s home in Miami, as featured in Elledecor.com!

Can I come in? Sir Elton John’s swanky LA pad

June 24, 2010

Now THAT’s an invite I wouldn’t lose. I can only imagine how fun one of Elton John‘s infamous parties would be, and it came as no surprise that his LA apartment has as much quirky and extravagant style as Elton himself. I found it on Architecturaldigest.com – they have BAGS of funky celeb homes on there – perfect for a spot of lunchtime celebrity style stalking!

Fancy a sneak peak?

Can I come in? Penelope Cruz’s home

May 10, 2010

I always thought Penelope Cruz had taste? (Hmmmm, actually, I forgot about Tom Cruise…) Now I admit that this large LA pad is – especially in comparison to my teeny tiny flat – somewhat fantastic (the pool alone is enough to make my mouth water) … although I must say the interior décor is just not my style at all.

The kitchen is too dark for me, and a bit dated, I really don’t like the dining chairs, and the garden room looks like it’s been decorated with four large shabby hair extensions!

Can I come in? Christina Aguilera’s home

April 7, 2010

As well as browsing dresses I can’t afford, I love visiting InStyle for their celebrity house tours – check out Christina Aguilera’s home for example. Hollywood-style glamour meets Mediterranean chic to create an eclectic and colourful mix! (a lot like Christina, herself!)

Wowza! A luxurious tub, a Lulu Guinness rug, I imagine this is a ‘girl’s only’ bathroom.

Linda Barker chats about the crafting trend

March 30, 2010

It was lovely chatting to Linda Barker at the Ideal Home Show, sneaking all the insider trend tips and discussing decorating mishaps! See what she has to say about home crafting, her key decorating trend for 2010.

Oooh, and why not make the most out of the long weekend by getting stuck in with some crafting yourself. I love these craft ideas by housetohome – they’re perfect to do on Saturday afternoon … then you can admire your handiwork with a belly full of chocolate on Sunday.

What’s Linda Barker’s biggest decorating disaster?

March 30, 2010

Well, there was only one way to find out … head to this year’s Ideal Home Show with a video camera and ask her!! I think I actually remember the incident she’s talking about – time and time again I cringe at some of my decorating mishaps, but at least they weren’t caught on national TV! Oooops.

Celebrities chat about their favourite rooms

March 30, 2010

I LOVED this year’s Ideal Home Show, not least because I got to run around with my video camera, chasing celebrities and begging them to give me some decorating tips!

I always enjoy finding out how celebrities choose to decorate their homes so in between demanding George Clarke for tips on how to become more eco-freindly, and grilling Suzi Perry on her favourite gadgets, I thought it was an opportune moment to find out about their favourite rooms.

Entertainers, Experts and Editors – what room do you envy?

March 9, 2010

After peering through the keyhole into Samantha Roddick’s home – no, seriously (below) – I am becoming more and more intrigued as to what inspires people to decorate in the way they do. I’m curious, did her decorating style come before she founded Coco de Mer, or was it inspired by her store (call it, The Chicken and the Erotic Egg’ theory!)

Anyway, I thought I’d give you a break from my ramblings every once in a while, by inviting some of my favourite celebrities, decorating gurus and even a handful of magazine editors (not an Anna Wintour in sight, I promise … although I’d love to hear her thoughts!) to share what makes them excited in the world of interiors … or what makes them run a mile!
