Zoe Ball might be a familiar guest in our kitchens via the radio. However, thanks to her Instagram the Radio 2 Breakfast show presenter has given us a glimpse into hers. And wow, do we have some serious kitchen envy.
Instagram gave us a glimpse inside Zoe Ball's kitchen when she shared photos of the finished refurbishment of her new kitchen.
'You'll always find me in the kitchen at parties. Love these pictures of our kitchen. It's the hub of our house, it's where we cook, eat, write, read, bicker, work out, put the world to rights. It took a lot of love to get it right,' wrote Zoe in her caption on Instagram.

If you've been inspired by Zoe Ball's dreamy kitchen transformation here are our the top style takeaways to help you get the look.
Get the look – Style tips
1. Keep it simple with shaker-style cabinets
This style of cabinet is very versatile and is perfect for creating a relaxed country-style kitchen. The warm neutral shade allows the colourful home accessories to do all the talking
2. Fill the kitchen with wall art
The kitchen is often a forgotten space when it comes to wall art. The framed prints of Liza Minelli and the turquoise tequila sign in Zoe's kitchen fill the space with personality. Making sure this room really is the heart of the home by filling it with art that reflects your tastes.
3. Divide an open-plan kitchen with built-in seating
Marking out the space between the kitchen and the lounge area can be a challenge. Zoe Ball has hit two birds with one stone by with a wall partition that doubles as a built-in bench.
4. Display cookbooks on open-shelving
Cookbooks are an easy way to add a burst of colour into a kitchen that is also practical. Zoe has used open shelving to display her collection, book-ended with gorgeous blue jugs. You don't need to be precious about how you stack them, a haphazard arrangement will only add to the charm.
5. Go big with a wallpaper feature wall
The crowning glory of Zoe's stunning space (above) is the pink tree-laden wallpaper from Arior Design. To make a feature wall like this work, start with the wallpaper and then build your colour scheme out from it. Zoe Ball has run the greens and pale pinks through the rest of the room tying the whole scheme together.
The vase of green leaves on the kitchen table looks like they are almost coming out of the wallpaper itself.
