It is an exciting time for Emmerdale actress Michelle Hardwick, as she recently announced she is expecting her first child with her wife Kate Brooks, seven months after they married in Nashville. The couple are currently isolating together at their home with their pet dog Fred during the coronavirus lockdown as filming has been suspended on Emmerdale, where Kate also works as a producer.
Michelle and Kate already appear to have the perfect home in which to welcome their bundle of joy later this year, which they bought together in summer 2018 and have wasted no time in putting their own stamp on with stylish furnishings and decorative touches. Keep reading to see more…
Michelle shared a look inside their kitchen and dining room as they enjoyed a date night during the COVID-19 lockdown, featuring a taupe baroque pattern wallpaper on the upper half of the walls, and cream panelling on the bottom. The couple sat together at a wooden dining table, while a breakfast bar and glass doors are also visible in the background.
Michelle and Kate have two living rooms in their home, one of which has a neutral colour scheme, with a deep burgundy hue painted close to the ceilings providing an accent to the muted cream tones. The lounge has a bay window with a brown ottoman in front of it, while a striped rug sits at the centre of the carpet.
In the summer, Michelle shared a photo of their pet dog Fred sat on a studded leather chair after returning from the groomers, giving a look at their stylish Orla Kiely cushion in the process.
Michelle gave a better glimpse inside the living room when she celebrated her birthday, and was treated to colourful balloons and a cardboard cut out of Michelle Pfeiffer. It showed how the couple have their television sat on a wooden media unit in the corner of the room, close to the window.
Kate and Michelle have their television on a grey wooden media unit in the corner of their room, which has also been decorated with framed photos of the couple together. For Christmas, the Emmerdale star hung stockings over the fireplace, and also had wooden reindeer statues on the floor.
Michelle shared a close up of her cosy fireplace on Instagram, showing they have added decorative touches around the log burner, including a candle and framed quote that says "We're most definitely pretending to be adults right now."
The couple's other living room also has a natural colour scheme, but a taupe baroque patterned wallpaper and wooden panelling on the walls give it a completely different aesthetic. This room has a traditional log burning fire and wooden floor, and a brown leather sofa topped with checked cushions.
