STACEY Solomon may have impressed fans with her home renovations, but her interior design skills have come under fire.

The TV presenter, who regularly gives fans a peak of her stylish home on Instagram, has been slammed by top interior decorator Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen.

Stacey shares her sprawling Essex £1.2 Million home, dubbed 'Pickle Cottage' with her husband Joe Swash as well as their children Harry, 15, Zachary, 14, Leighton, 10 Rex, 3 and one-year-old Rose.

The Loose Women star, 32, moved into Pickle Cottage in April 2021 and has been busying transforming it into her dream home, regularly sharing progress with her legions of online followers.

The stylish mansion features a swimming pool as well as a games room which the DIY queen personally designed as a birthday present to her husband,whom she married in July 2022.

But despite her enthusiasm for home decoration, not everyone is impressed.

Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen, who rose to fame in the 90's appearing in the decorating show, Changing Rooms, has had a few things to say about the Essex cottage.

Speaking to OK!, he said: "Suddenly, everybody’s looking at coordinating with the likes of Posh and Becks to get the 'Stacey Solomon grey’ look. It’s incredibly cold,”

The design star added: "I want people to know how to create a warm, loving space in which they can recharge as well as feel safe and looked after."
