Renovating their Cheshire home, Jessica Fox and Fiancé Nicholas Willes choose bright colours, and tackle some DIY.
Hollyoaks actress Jessica Fox revealed progress on her home renovation projects. The star lives in Cheshire with her fiancé and shares photos and updates about their DIY projects.
"When we started decorating our new home I thought neutral, minimal, Scandi. But it turns out I meant colourful, cluttered and cosy," she says.
The house mixes fun artwork and pops of colour alongside cosy soft furnishings and retro touches.
The stairs, with hand-painted accents, lead to a gallery wall at the landing.
"Really pleased with how the hallway stairs turned out - tester pots and wall stickers," she explains.
House plants and artwork are prominent in every room with Jessica admitting, "I'm not a minimalist when it comes to interiors."
Colourful prints line the white bathroom walls, including the toilet, with plants perched on a bright blue shelf.
Along with painting and wallpapering the couple has been doing much of the work themselves.
She explains "My old Ikea chair was scratched to pieces by the cat so I got handy with some cheap fabric, a staple gun and YouTube videos."
The cushions are from H&M.
Following renovation work last year the bright blue and white kitchen includes more colourful artwork and matching dishes.
