For years, Lorraine Kelly famously commuted to her job in London from her home base in Scotland, calling a city apartment home during the week.
But recently, the popular TV star made the big move down South, to Buckinghamshire – in order to spend more time with her husband Steve and to be closer to work.
And it looks as though she’s wasted no time decorating her new home, with the help of Wayfair.
She’s even shared a sneak peek into her brand new – and pretty impressive – guest cottage, where she plans to host her mum and dad when they come down for the Christmas holidays.
Lorraine said, “My Mum and Dad will be coming down from Scotland and staying with us in our new Guest Cottage.”
Describing the look she was going for with the room, she said, “We have a lot of friends and family who come to stay with us at weekends and I wanted to have a place where they would feel relaxed and a little bit spoiled. My favourite spot is the desk area and I adore the chest of drawers and ladder shelf, which is so stylish and clever. Guests who visited after the makeover were thrilled and said they wanted to move in!”
And we’re not surprised! The photos are one of the first looks we’ve ever had into Lorraine’s home – and provide a great insight into the presenter’s cosy but glamorous interior styles.
Lorraine has opted to kit out the space with some comfortable, but chic, Scandi-inspired home items – including some framed prints, a plush blue carpet and some simple but timeless wooden furniture.
And of course, the space is also littered with stylish Christmas decorations, truly making the cottage feel super-festive.
In an interview with Wayfair, Lorraine confessed that she can’t wait to spend Christmas in her new home – and revealed how she and her family will be whiling away the big day.
She shared, “We are so looking forward to celebrating Christmas in our lovely new home after our big move down from Scotland. We moved to a quirky house with beautiful views over the river.
“I love to have an old-fashioned Christmas and our daughter, Rosie, will be coming home from Singapore and it will be lovely for us all to be together. We wake up on Christmas morning, have a glass of fizz and start unwrapping presents. After dinner we take Angus, our border terrier, out for a brisk walk nearby to blow away the cobwebs and later we tuck into turkey sandwiches during our cosy movie night in.” Sounds perfect to us!
However, Lorraine has shown a few little snippets of her new house on her social media channels before.
She’s previously shared with fans a look at the inside of her home, revealing the warm, traditional tiles she has in her living room – which she’s paired with a comfortable green sofa.
She also revealed a glance into her garden and her huge porch – confessing that she also turned to Wayfair to help furnish it.
It’s definitely a home we’d love to live in!
