Lotte Brouwer

ABOUT ME I’m 28 and I live in a two-bed maisonette in Lon­don with my part­ner Jonathan Wil­liams, 29. WHAT WOULD YOU do

dif­fer­ently? I spent more on fur­ni­ture and ac­ces­sories than I did on build­ing work. In hind­sight, I would have in­vested in bet­ter builders and ma­te­ri­als, to end up with bet­ter-qual­ity fin­ishes.

Jess Pilk­ing­ton

ABOUT ME I’m 23 and I live with my fi­ance Matt, 26, and sons Oliver, 2, and Thomas, 6 months in a two-bed mid-ter­race in Chich­ester. WHAT WOULD YOU do

dif­fer­ently? When we moved in I hated the old cur­tains, so I rushed to make new ones. Look­ing back, I wish I’d taken my time as I’m now hav­ing to fin­ish them all prop­erly!

Ash­ley Gray

ABOUT ME I’m 29 and I live in a five-bed­room new build in Air­drie with my hus­band Iain, 32. WHAT’S your FAVOURITE SHOP? I al­ways find the most amaz­ing pieces of fur­ni­ture in TK Maxx and Home­sense. I bought some lovely urn vases from Top Drawer, and I have found some gor­geous home ac­ces­sories at Achica.

Lau­ren Sea­ger

ABOUT ME I’m 55 and I live in an ex­tended three-bed semi in Mil­ton Keynes with my hus­band Kevin, 53, and daugh­ter Amelia, 26. WHAT’S your BEST STYLE Tip? Do as much your­self as you can – Youtube has amaz­ing tu­to­ri­als. Up­cy­cle and re-use when­ever it’s pos­si­ble. Lastly, make a note of what you ab­so­lutely need, and stick to it.

Jade Wilce

ABOUT ME I’m 30 and I live with my hus­band Matthew, 32, in a three­bed­room semi in Glouces­ter­shire. WHAT’S your FAVOURITE ROOM? We’ve re­cently ex­tended our home to add in a kitchen-dining space for all our friends and fam­ily to en­joy, and we have a cop­per work­top on our kitchen is­land unit, which is my favourite thing in our home.

Alex Blake­lock

ABOUT ME I’m 30, and I live with my fi­ance Paul in a three­bed­room cot­tage in Leeds. WHERE do YOU GET your

dec­o­rat­ing IDEAS? We usu­ally come up with the ba­sic colour and style we want to achieve, but will then search for dif­fer­ent ideas and ac­ces­sories on Pin­ter­est, In­sta­gram and in Style At Home, of course!
