Stacey Solomon made her followers green (or should that be pink?) with envy when she unveiled her millennial pink laundry room in July. "I know it's not to everyone's taste. But I love it and I'm so proud of it and I had so much fun doing it - if you're not having fun then what's it all for?" she said on Instagram before sharing a look at the space, which has pink vinyl on the cupboards, faux flowers behind a wall shelf, and even a selection of entirely pink cleaning products.
