My ds watches this and I'm loving the whole nautical duck egg colour scheme. Need to decorate soon and am feeling rather inspired a la Grandpa. Am I the only one??!

I may draw the line at the skirts but the decor just seems so fresh and luvverly. Not sure dh will agree...!

YANBU - I was admiring it just now! I'd never be able to keep it so clean though.

yes - they have WHITE sofas! no way they'd remain that shade for long..

it is lovely but you need lots of lovely seaside light to make it work

i am going to decorate my house in the style of 'come outside' old lady age concern chic.

i love the house

we have same sofas

I just cover the seats with same colour fleece so I don't have to wash the seat covers much

love the wall colours but that is a hard colour to get right

agreee you need a light seaside house

yanbu - I was telling my DH yesterday how much I wanted to live in a house that looked like that!

igglepiddle Tue 22-Sep-09 17:41:44

does anyone know what the paint colour might be? Looked at f&b but couldn't see 'by the sea'

OMG its not just me! It's lovely, i try and take a bit more in each time it comes on!
I love the way that the whole house is decorated in the same style, even the kitchen units are in the right colour! [sad cow emoticon]

Does anyone know where it is filmed? I'd like to live there sans joules natch!
