SHOULD your home be dressed up to the nines like Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s disco-themed abode, or dressed down like Kelly Brook’s country farmhouse?
We are now spending twice as much time and money on improving our places now compared to before lockdown, according to a poll – but many of us don’t know where to start.
Luckily, some house-proud celebs are providing inspiration by sharing their decor on Instagram.
Here, interior designer Faye Robinson-Hey asks a series of questions so you can match your personality and style to your ideal celebrity home, and shares some high street accessories to get you started.
Which celeb is your decor double?
YOU haven’t seen your girls in months. Your reunion consists of:
A. Country walk, picnic and pit-stop at the pub.
B. A bottomless brunch.
C. Karaoke at your place and you’ll provide props.
D. A meal out, as you don’t host – too much cleaning up the next day!
E. Getting dressed up and heading to the pub, with a McDonald’s after.
F. You’ll put on a mini festival, music and barbecue in the garden.
IT’S one of THOSE days. You cheer yourself up by:
A. Baking your favourite cake and drinking endless cups of tea.
B. Dusting, mopping, Hoovering – and then organising everything in the house too.
C. Blasting your favourite band and dancing round the kitchen.
D. Putting on your fanciest outfit and going out with your best mate.
E. Getting cosy on the sofa and bingeing on Netflix.
F. Doing a spot of yoga in the garden to help you find your zen.

A. Head to cute boutiques and end up buying a new apron from Cath Kidston.
B. Research online first to find which of your favourite stores have the best deals.
C. Are off to the market. You love searching on Etsy and eBay too.

YOU are dreaming of a holiday. Your ideal getaway is:

WHAT’S your go-to cocktail?
A. A traditional old fashioned. I like the smoky, mature taste.
B. Mojito, as it’s fresh and easy to make.
C. Tequila sunrise – fruity, colourful, but with a kick.
D. Cosmopolitan. Got to keep it classic and sophisticated.
E. Nothing beats a jug of Pimm’s in the sunshine.

glam and scandal.

F. Little Fires Everywhere – set in the 90s and with strong female leads.
Mostly As – Farmhouse like Kelly Brook
YOU are one Kell of a country bumpkin.
The sound of birds, smell of fresh air and the kettle brewing means you share the same country vibes as model Kelly, 40.
You might not be living in a period property, but mix hand-me-down furniture with modern pieces to get a relaxed feel.
To really nail the style, invest in a floral chair or sofa and make sure you have plenty of throws to give that cosy cottage feel.
- Floral jug, £25, Great British Florist
- Yellow throw, £30, Next
Mostly Bs – Shades of grey like Mrs Hinch
YOU feel most comfortable in a home with barely a hint of colour – just like cleaning guru Sophie Hinchcliffe, 30.
You like the finer things in life and everything to look smart and neat, but you don’t want to splash out.
If there’s one word that could really sum you up, it is minimalistic.
Tick boxes for the trend include mirrored cabinets, a grey velvet sofa and a large fluffy grey rug.
- Mirrored cabinet, £40, Argos
- Grey cushion, £10, George at Asda
Mostly Cs – Disco diva like Sophie Ellis-Bexter
YOU are all for a good time, no matter what day it is – just like Groovejet singer Sophie, 41.
Turning your living room into a dancefloor is not unusual for you, so why not give your home some serious disco vibes with bright colours and sequins?
As you don’t like to follow the crowd, the bigger the clash the better, so make sure you stock up on quirky pictures and statement cushions.
- Doormat, £18, Oliver Bonas
- Print, £12.95, Desenio
Mostly Ds – Trendseeker like Amanda Holden
STRICTLY decadent for you, just like TV presenter Amanda, 49.
You always look impeccable and so should your home.
You like the glamorous side of life and have a penchant for on-trend jewelled tones so bring that into your home.
Always have fresh flowers on show and don’t be afraid to paint walls a dark blue tone like Amanda, with gold trimmings.
- Candle, £12.99, H&M
- Gold clock, £65, Barker and Stonehouse
Mostly Es – Wild for prints like Scarlett Moffatt
YOUR taste is modern and simple but you love to spice it up with a bit of animal print, like Gogglebox star Scarlett, 29.
While you love a night on the tiles, staying in is your go-to – which is why you need to make sure you have a great cocktail kit at home.
Keep walls and furniture in classic shades but bring in your personality with soft furnishings and slogan pictures.
Show off your wild side with animal print rugs, throws and even statues.
- Animal print rug, £95, Sass and Belle
- French Connection Planter, £4.50
Mostly Fs – Thinking pink like Fearne Cotton
WHITE walls? Gosh no, that’s way too boring for you. Everything has to be pink, pretty and floral – just like telly star Fearne, 38.
Your house might not always be spick and span but it’s important it is decorated just how you like it, like Fearne’s home which looks like an Instagram dream.
