This Morning fans shocked as interior designer Kelly Hoppen gives Phil and Holly a tour of huge, ‘messy’ monochrome home

THIS Morning fans were left shocked today as interior designer Kelly Hoppen gave Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby a tour of her huge but "messy" monochrome home.

Kelly, 60, has been offering the likes of Alesha Dixon and Josie Gibson advice on how to make the best use of their space during lockdown in video calls on the ITV show.

But she received mix reviews when she opened her own doors, as viewers spotted piles of dishes on the counter and shelves brimming with books, ornaments, plants and boxes.

The talented designer revealed she lives in a stunning house in central London and prefers grey, black and white interiors.

She told Holly, 39, and Phil, 58, that her kitchen is her favourite room in the house, as it features a breakfast bar that runs the length of the room.

Kelly, who joked it doubles up as her boozing bar, zoomed in on tupperware boxes, two jars of marmite, a coffee machine with two pots of pods and jars of spices.

A half empty bottle of wine, bowl of apples and trays of cartons and tablets were tucked into various corners.

Moving into her living room area, fans spotted boxes shoved behind the sofa and Kelly admitted she stores her project work around the house.

But people at home were left scratching their heads over her "cluttered" living space.

One fan said: "Put your washing up away you messy sod!"

Another wrote: "Kelly put your pots away! What a messy kitchen"

More fans were stunned by how many books she had, with Kelly telling Holly and Phil that she only bought books that matched the colours in her home.

Another fan more wrote: "I quite like stacked books, but something about this just looks a little messy..."

And another said: "Why would you have 300 cupboards, when hide your microwave in one of them and then leave everything else on the f*****g worktops!? "

Kelly explained: "Right so this is the kitchen it kind of slices through to the main room, I use my breakfast bar as a bar. As you know I'm not a fan of cooking.

"The breakfast area is one of my favourite places to sit."

Kelly explained she liked to pick a neutral pallet and then add lots of different textures in that colour.
She added: "This is the way I love to live, texture can be just as important as colour. Here I've got what looks like marble but it's ceramic.

"I think it's really important to actually go around your house and find all the vases that you put flowers in, and put pencils in, make the surfaces nice, and whatever you're looking at make it nice, turning a desk facing the window."

She added: "I've got some really nice containers, there are so many great bargains on the high street, buy baskets and people can use them to put the toys away after the kids go to bed.

"It's a good opportunity to go through what you don't use and give things away to charities and make your homes work."
