Here are the UK's top 10 TV interiors - but which kitchen do you prefer, Nigella's or Jamie's?
Which TV interiors inspire you? Do you rate Nigella’s kitchen over Jamie’s? Did Monica and Rachel’s purple appartment make you swoon?
Dulux Amazing Space asked the nation for their most desired TV interiors – and the results may surprise you…
1. Nigella Lawson’s kitchen
Admit it – we are all envious of Nigella’s pantry and a little disheartened that we aren’t seeing much of it in her new Simply Nigella
cookery show. Nevertheless, Nigella’s new candy colour kitchen has us salivating before she’s even began cooking. Teal and fuchsia cupboards are topped with industrial steel worktops and every appliance matches. Kitchen goals.
2. The Apprentice house
Lord Sugar has outdone himself again and found one of the best houses in London to home The Apprentice‘s contestants. This year, the hungry contestants are residing in a 6-bedroom townhouse in Holborn with a zesty, open plan living room, airy kitchen and gilded bedrooms. Costing a cool
£17,000 a month, this pad has us considering applying in 2016…
3. Highclere Castle – Downtown Abbey
Perhaps the most famous castle in the world due to the hit TV programme, Downton Abbey, Highclere Castle is a showstopper. The Jacobean property is set in 5,000 acres of woodland and manicured gardens, but wait till you peek inside! As you would expect, tremendous ceilings, rococo décor and stunning stone and woodwork prevail in the period home so it’s no wonder it has us lusting after a piece of luxury.
Monica and Rachel’s front room in Friends
We only need to say ‘purple living room’ and already you know what we are talking about – Monica and Rachel’s vibrant Manhattan apartment has hosted some of the most emotional and funny scenes ever seen on TV. The mismatched flat oozes a bohemian appeal that allows violet walls, cobalt cupboards, clunky furniture and patchwork quilts to work well and have us all envious.
Jamie Oliver’s kitchen
Warning: the naked chef doesn’t come with this kitchen, but still, we are all swooning over Jamie Oliver’s delicious pad. Retro splash back tiles in milky grey line the walls and look fashionable alongside colourful appliances, whilst marble topped workspaces are given a youthful overhaul by mixing them with organic wooden cupboards. This kitchen looks straight out of one of Jamie’s restaurants.
Steph and Dom’s front room in Gogglebox
The Parkers, better known as the posh couple from Gogglebox, own a boutique hotel in Kent. The Grade I listed mansion has everything you would expect from a glam, champagne guzzling couple – drinks trolley, ice bucket, gold curtains and artwork. This Gogglebox living room has made it to the top 10 TV interiors and has us thirsty for baroque finishes and Bloody Marys.
The Big Brother house
Big Brother may be watching us, but we are watching right back! Every year the Big Brother house gets an interior overhaul that has seen slides, bike inspired seating and tree houses. Clashing colours and textures are important to the design of the house that accommodates about 16 contestants, and every year it has ooo-ing and aaa-ing over the stylish design.
Christian Grey’s Red Room
Revealing our saucier side, as a nation we desire the notorious Red Room. We’re not sure whether it’s the actor, apparatus or actual interior that has the UK excited – but we do know that this red, velvety vault has us turning down the grey for more exotic 4-poster beds, leather covered walls, hanging tassels and brassy finishes. Mr. Grey will see you now..

Sibling duo Louise and Sam Thompson moved in together in 2011 and their tiny home in London’s chic neighborhood, Chelsea, has had us vying after a similar pad of our own ever since – without the drama. From the double living room with peacock style sofas to the modern kitchen with black marble tops, this home was made in heaven.
The Dingles cottage in Emmerdale
Video Of The Week
The country cottage belonging to the Dingles has stolen our hearts. A truly rustic abode set in a Postman Pat inspired village in the Yorkshire Dales full of old-fashioned furniture, a collection of magnets and green curtains.
