Alex O’con­nor

ABOUT ME I’m 25 and I live in a two-bed­room flat in Es­sex with my boyfriend Wil­liam, 28. what’s your FAVOURITE ROOM? I’m lucky that Wil­liam lets me have free rein over the decor, so I’ve turned our spare bed­room into a spa­cious, girlie dress­ing room – it’s so handy for get­ting dolled up for a night out!

Jes­sica Charge

ABOUT ME I’m 40 and I live in a Thir­ties semi-de­tached house in Southamp­ton with my hus­band Matt, 46, and son Isaac, two. what’s your BEST Moneysav­ing Tip? It’s worth spend­ing money on an ac­ces­sory if you re­ally love it and it’s a key part of a room, but don’t in­vest in trends you can buy cheaply on the high street.

Robyn Swain

ABOUT ME I’m 27 and I live with my hus­band Sam, 31, and daugh­ters Mis­cha, seven, and Izzy, five, in a Seven­ties mid-ter­race in Lan­cashire. what’s your next pro­ject? I plan to give our din­ing area a makeover, in­clud­ing putting up new skirt­ing and door frames, and fit­ting a half wall of board and bat­ten, plus build­ing a unit for my bak­ing stuff.

An­drea Smed­ley

ABOUT ME I’m 45, I live in a four-bed­room de­tached pe­riod house in Scar­bor­ough and blog at the­cre­ative­coastal­ where do YOU GET dec­o­rat­ing ideas? I read homes mag­a­zines and fol­low a num­ber of blogs. I’m a keen crafter and up­cy­cler, so I also watch TV shows like Fill Your House For Free and Money For Noth­ing.

Kate Duck­man­ton

ABOUT ME I’m 41, and live with my hus­band Peter, 45, and our chil­dren Ma­bel, eight, and Ru­fus, six, in a mod­ern de­tached in Buck­ing­ham. what would YOU have done dif­fer­ently? Look­ing back, I wish I had been more ad­ven­tur­ous with us­ing pat­terns in my home, in­stead of think­ing that ‘clean lines’ meant plain colours.

Glenn Rid­dle

ABOUT ME I’m 46 and I live in a four-bed­room town­house in County Durham with my wife Lind­say, 42, and son Sam, 16. what’s your MOST re­cent pro­ject? I’ve just com­pleted a Churchill-in­spired, gentle­man’s club-style room, with For­ties mem­o­ra­bilia, drinks cabi­net, and old pipes dis­played on the walls.
