It’s been many years since we cried a tear because of the demise of Changing Rooms, but fear not the BBC are to give us Your Home In Their Hands.
The series will be a prime-time transformational makeover series for the beebs main channel, where home owners hand over their front door keys for the ultimate makeover – the only catch being the people doing the makeover are not professionals; the only homes they’ve decorated before are their own.
In each programme, four passionate home decorators who think they’ve got an eye for design and a flair for fabrics compete against each other to win a cash prize. They think they’ve got what it takes. But when it comes to decorating someone else’s home, the rules are very different and the stakes and emotions run high.
Judging the process is self-made multi-millionaire interior designer and businesswoman Celia Sawyer.
Anyone who comes on the show and thinks interior design is a walk in the park is going to have a real shock. Interior design isn’t just about painting a wall pretty colours, it’s about listening to your brief and working hard to fulfil it. That’s what I will be looking for. – Sawyer
The commission is the second announced by the BBC today. The first will be a celebrity gymnastic series.
