She’s one of the nation’s most-loved property presenters, winning the hearts with hit shows including Location, Location, Location and Fill Your House For Free. But behind closed doors does Kirstie Allsopp follow her own advice on the charms of eclectic interior design, upcycled furniture and handcrafted homeware and furnishings?

Let’s take a look inside the London and Devon homes she shares with partner Ben Anderson and their sons Bay, 11, and nine-year-old Oscar and find out…
Curb appeal is all important
Pink spring blooms look striking against the white exterior of this imposing period property in leafy Notting Hill.
Kirstie loves country cooking
If you can peel your eyes away from Kirstie’s adorable four-legged friend Dandy, you’ll also find yourself enamoured with this huge Aga range cooker in a delicate shade of cream. We bet many a hearty meal has been cooked on it.
She’s not afraid of mixing and matching
We love everything from the distressed wooden dining table to the gingham napkins. The intricately patterned ceramics in a mixture of vintage designs also gets the thumbs up from us.
She’s a fan of the wood-burning stove
Not surprisingly, the property expert has a cosy fireplace to get you in the mood for Christmas. And this wood-burning number also creates a lovely focal point.
There’s a place for everything
French doors leading from the bedroom to what looks like an en suite bathroom – what a designer delight. And that open wicker storage unit is perfect for keeping those beauty products close at hand.
White bedlinen is still in favour at Kirstie’s
Any pattern is limited to the floral print on this upholstered button-back headboard, which gives this bedroom a vintage feel – and Kirstie’s signature dresses, of course! The pearlescent shimmer on the mint green wallpaper is eye-catching, too.
Kirstie doesn’t shy away from pink
The salmon pink hue on the exterior of Kirstie’s Devon bolthole is utterly charming.
And it looks just as good on the inside too. A large mirror, unique ornaments and some simple framed pictures give this mantelpiece a homely feel.
