Changing Rooms designer Gordon Whistance returns to Home with the second series of Love The Place You’re In.
With the credit crunch still taking its toll on the housing market, buying is riskier and, in some places, more expensive than ever before. With buying property as an investment no longer a popular option, Love The Place You’re In finds out what aspiring property up-graders are doing instead – they are staying put and getting creative; making their existing homes the havens of cool they've always dreamed off.
Throughout the 10-part series, Gordon visits homes from Swindon to Stockport and Bow to Billericay to show homeowners how they can stamp their personality on their private spaces and how to make their home into a bespoke sanctuary.
Once again, Love The Place You’re In will also look at the psychology of interior design, how the British have a unique relationship with their homes, and how the family dynamic can be affected by home environment and decor.
Meet the Burn family from Swindon. With three generations living under the same roof, the family need to make their home work harder. With a budget of £3,000 and several different opinions to contend with, will Gordon be able to work his magic?
Then there’s DIY enthusiast Tracey from Worthing. Tracey is desperate to add colour to her bland neutral lounge, she wants to be bold but lacks confidence. With a budget of £2,000 will Gordon be able to transform her home into a bright place to be?
Love The Place You’re In is'nt about an opportunity to turn a profit but about real people falling back in love with their homes.
Love The Place You’re In, weeknights at 10pm from Monday 9th November on Home (Sky 246, Virgin 265)
