It's been a year to remember for Jessica Fox, who not only announced her engagement to Nicholas Gilles in November, but has also been busy with house renovations after moving into a new property with her husband-to-be. The Hollyoaks actress, who is best known for her role as Nancy Osbourne on the soap, has been keeping her Instagram followers updated as she gives her house a colourful makeover room-by-room.

Despite thinking she would go for Scandi minimalism in her new home, Jessica and Nicholas have opted for bright colours, kitsch wall art and crafty DIY projects to create a space that is full of personality – and we love it! Their living room has been given a cosy festive makeover for Christmas with a tree taking pride of place in the window, and lots of candles scattered around.

The living room has been painted in a soft sage green hue with brown leather sofas and a Berber-style rug from La Redoute. Chopped logs for the couple's wood-burning fire have been artfully stacked next to the fireplace, and colourful throws help to add to the cosy ambience of the room.

Jessica got creative by upcycling an old IKEA chair with new fabric for her living room, topped with Mi Casa Su Casa print cushions from H&M Home.

The hallway has also had a redesign, with a painted staircase in tonal shades of blue and plants on each step. Meanwhile, polka dot wall stickers complete Jessica's thrifty makeover, which she revealed had been completed with tester pots. "Now I just have to try not to knock over all the plants every time I go up and down the stairs…" she wrote.

"When we started decorating our new home I thought neutral, minimal, Scandi. But it turns out I meant colourful," Jessica captioned this photo of her newly-decorated bedroom, which has pink walls with a mixture of coloured cushions on the bed, and more artwork and plants on picture ledges on the wall overhead.

Jessica's love of plants has extended to her bathroom where there is lots of greenery scattered around and navy tiles on the walls. "Bathroom. Jungle. You decide," the Hollyoaks star wrote.
