RADIO 1 star Vick Hope’s flat perfectly mirrors her personality – fun, modern and very stylish.
The former Strictly star, who we exclusively revealed is engaged to DJ and producer Calvin Harris, lives in a chic East London pad just a few miles from work.
It comes complete with an abundance of on-trend indoor plants and colourful furniture, including an orange armchair.
Describing her flat as her “sanctuary”, Vick initially worried about living alone for the first time, but has made the space well and truly hers.
The open plan kitchen is fitted with white cabinets, which she has decorated with some small plants, vibrant magnets and framed pictures.
The kitchen is complete with a colourful apron in a nod to her Nigerian heritage, which the star has also been tapping into during lockdown.
Vick has been cooking along with her family to her ‘Mama Nwosu-Hope’s Nigerian Masterclass’ and made delicious dishes from black eye bean yam and porridge to pepper soup.
The kitchen opens onto the lounge room which boasts a guild gold mirror and blue sofa.
The former Strictly Come Dancing contestant has decorated the bold sofa with pink and tropical plant print throw pillows.
Framed prints adorn the walls and the room is topped off with a tall gold brass drinks stand and matching floor lamps.
Instead of a traditional coffee table, Vick has opted for a grey chest, on top of which she regularly adorns with different flowers from tulips to sunflowers.
Alongside the unconventional coffee table sits a brown leather armchair.
Vick has also given fans a glimpse into her bedroom which boasts a print of the London skyline and hand drawn pictures of an intertwined couple.
The black bedhead is home lots of large pillows including one with a print of large bird.
When she’s tired of hosting her Back To Mine show on 4 Music, Vick regularly hangs out in her favourite bikinis on her cute balcony.
She laps up the summer sun while sipping on cool cocktails and looks out over the East London skyline.
The star admitted she was reluctant to live alone and decorated to bring her “immense pleasure and joy”.
“I love lighting candles, putting on music and settling down to the evening in what feels like a haven, a safe space where I can just be, and block out the noise of the world when it needs blocking out,” Vick told Grazia last year.
“I was very anxious about living alone, having previously rented with mates for 7 years (and before that, uni…and before that, living with my family of 6), but I have learned to love being on my own and find great peace in my little flat.”
