Claire Allinson

ABOUT ME I’m 25 and I rent a stu­dio flat in a con­verted Vic­to­rian prop­erty in Es­sex.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE SHOP? Gumtree, by far – there’s al­ways a bar­gain to be had, and some nice quirky and vin­tage pieces that may be one per­son’s trash, but be­come my trea­sures. It’s a great way to fur­nish a place on a bud­get.

Joanne Robin­son

ABOUT ME I’m 45 and I own a two-bed­room 1890s labourer’s cot­tage in Es­sex.

WHAT’S YOUR BEST HOME STYLE TIP? I like to have dingly-dan­glies (such as hang­ing hearts) on dis­play in all my rooms. They make a great ad­di­tion, don’t cost much, and are pretty and dec­o­ra­tive. They’re also eas­ily up­dated if you want a change.

Kayleigh Wal­lace

ABOUT ME I’m 29 and I live in a three-bed­room new-build semi in Fife with my hus­band Krys and our baby girl Amelia-jane, three months.

WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE DONE DIF­FER­ENTLY? I wish I’d looked into the right plants to have in our gar­den in time for sum­mer this year, as I spent a lot of money on plants that didn’t last. I’m not a nat­u­ral gar­dener!

Katie Hib­berts

ABOUT ME I’m 36 and I live with my hus­band Peter, 37, and chil­dren, Eleanor, 9, Olivia, 6, and Joseph, 2, plus I’m ex­pect­ing an­other baby. Our home is a four-bed manse owned by the church, as Peter is a min­is­ter.

NEXT HOME PROJECT? I’d like to make some cur­tains for the kitchen, but I’ve yet to find fab­ric to match the tiles we in­her­ited with the house.

Gemma God­frey

ABOUT ME I’m 28 and I live with my boyfriend Ross, 27, in a 1970s three-bed­room end-of-ter­race house in Cheshire.

WHICH IS YOUR FAVOURITE ROOM? My lounge/dining room – it has a shabby chic, rus­tic feel with a lot of soft fur­nish­ings and ac­ces­sories. It’s a bril­liant space for re­lax­ing and so­cial­is­ing with friends.

Char­lie Pal­lett

ABOUT ME I’m 21 and I live in my first home with my part­ner Tom, also 21 and our Pug puppy, Arla.

WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR DEC­O­RAT­ING IN­SPI­RA­TION? I’m re­ally in­spired by the past and I love an­tique and vin­tage fur­ni­ture, I get a lot of my ideas from magazines and Pin­ter­est, as well ex­plor­ing an­tiques shops and in­te­ri­ors ex­hi­bi­tions.
