OLIVIA and Alex Bowen showed off their incredible £1 million Essex pad after five months of renovations.

The former Love Island pair moved into the house – their second home together – back in February and a lot has changed since they first walked through the doors.

The reality stars have spent months renovating the property into their “forever home” adding a touch of glam and elegance to the huge property.

From a dreamy kitchen to spacious open plan living areas, their pad is the stuff of home interior goals.

Since moving in the pair have kept their fans up to date with the progress on their dedicated home interior account which boasts 594k followers on Instagram.

And judging by the social media posts, they prefer neutral tones for their interiors.


With plenty of white walls, marble surfaces and parquet floorboards, the reality favourites have displayed timeless taste when it comes to decorating her home.

The stars have completely renovated their hallway opting for grey walls, a lavish staircase with a black banister, a pair of ceramic vases and a magnificent chandelier.

It is complemented with a sleek black centre table and cream vintage style armchair and storage chests that ooze glamour.

The pair wrote: “So I have actually removed the rug which is under the table now, it was too much for me – I need a lighter one!


"BUT apart from that this is how the hallway is now looking, it’s pretty much there now maybe a few tweaks but sooo happy with how it’s evolving & feels a lot more ‘us’ now ❤️”

The stars showed off their plush living room beautifully decorated with a cream sofa, a five feet TV unit and nautical style cushion and throws.

They can enjoy lounging around on their comfy sofas admiring the stunning decor.

The penned: “WE’RE IN! It’s so difficult to get a photo to show you guys really how beautiful this room is in all its glory, I can’t seem to capture it – I’ll keep trying though obv 😂 I think maybe it’s because it’s a feeling rather than a look 🥰


“This was our first big project on the house & kitchens are my FAVOURITE room, so I really just wanted everything to be perfect & it has actually come out exactly how I imagined it, which hasn’t really happened before 😂

“I’m quite overwhelmed actually however silly that may sound to some! There is still little bits to go like the armchair, coffee table, glass shelves, curtains etc BUT it’s finally useable!

"This is now officially our kitchen, living & dining space. Thanks guys for all your support along the way! Least that’s 1 room done, 718246 more to go… 😂 P.S look how cute Winnie is.”

The pair's home also boasts a massive dining room complete with a classic wooden dining table, cream seats, a large mirror, and a stunning array of floral decorations.


The reality stars can enjoy hours of catch up TV on their high definition television attached to the wall and turn down the lighting on their stand-alone studio tripod lamp.

The star joked: “Realising I’m a grown up as I now play dress up with my dinner table.”

The couple also boast a second living room which is ideal for a cosy cinema date night with a huge TV.

It comes complete with an eight seat navy sofa, roman blinds, celing lights and matching coffee tablets.

The charm and elegance of the home continues into the kitchen that includes a large kitchen aisle ideal for family gatherings.

It decorated with soft tones, stylish metal bar stools and has all the latest kitchen necessities perfect for cooking up a storm.

The pair were proud of their transformation saying it looks “so glam” and were “super buzzing” about their new kitchen.

The stars have completed the room with an olive tree nestled into a corner and three glass downlights extending from the ceiling.

The reality favourites even have their own utility room with singing washing machines and dryers that play tunes.

Olivia and Alex have tastefully renovated their downstairs bathroom with stunning modern features including grey patterned tiles and a light-up mirror.

They admitted that the layout has turned it into a very “spacious and open” bathroom.

The TV stars can kick back and enjoy hours of lazing around in the garden admiring the gorgeous landscape while chilling out in their own hot tub.

The house is also complete with a massive garden, which is the ideal space for French bulldogs Reggie and Winnie to play.

Alex and Olivia have a balcony to look out onto their acres of land and they even have a pond in their back yard too.

Other rooms include a lavish bedroom with a plush brown bed, a dressing room which is the perfect back drop for their Instagram posts and they even have a shower room for their pooches.

The couple's relationship has gone from strength to strength since they first locked eyes at each other during the second series of Love Island in 2016.

Just five months after leaving the villa Alex proposed to the beauty during a romantic holiday in New York.

They became the first couple from the ITV2 dating show to wed as they tied the knot in Gosfield Hall, Essex, in September 2018.

But despite currently creating their forever home, they won't be sharing their pad with children any time soon after Olivia ruled out having kids in 2020 due to work commitments.
