Is your house interior more like country girl Kelly Brook or trendsetter Amanda Holden? Take our quiz to find out

SHOULD your home be dressed up to the nines like Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s disco-themed abode, or dressed down like Kelly Brook’s country farmhouse?

We are now spending twice as much time and money on improving our places now compared to before lockdown, according to a poll – but many of us don’t know where to start.

See if you should be drawing inspiration from Sophie Ellis-Bexter’s disco-themed abode, or Mrs Hinch’s minimalist pad

Luckily, some house-proud celebs are providing inspiration by sharing their decor on Instagram.

Here, interior designer Faye Robinson-Hey asks a series of questions so you can match your personality and style to your ideal celebrity home, and shares some high street accessories to get you started.
