The flamboyant interior designer Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen was in fine voice on Monday 12th December, when he met with Anglian Home Improvement’s Melanie McDonald at a London recording studio to voice the new Anglian “Half Price, House Proud” TV commercial. Laurence quickly got into the script and within half an hour, the new TV commercial had been brought to life with Mr. Llewelyn-Bowen’s dulcet tones!!
Known originally for his creative talents in the home interiors arena, Laurence has more recently embraced radio presenting and currently enjoys his own weekly show on Sunday mornings with Classic FM. Anglian’s previous association with Laurence was back in 2010, when he was one of the judges on the Anglian sponsored “Popstar to Opera Star” series on ITV1………clearly demonstrating his passion for classical music and opera.
Laurence’s plans for Christmas this year are very busy indeed. The Llewelyn-Bowen family will be entertaining 35 guests at their Grade II listed home in the Cotswolds for Christmas Day lunch. The house has been decorated with a Grimms’ fairy tales theme. Laurence referred to “lots of twigs and slightly witchy-looking elements that feel very Hansel and Gretel” he revealed
So what is his top tip for a festive makeover? “The light this time of year is very low, so indulge in your passion for flamingo pink to brighten things up and go for something really brave. Interiors are increasingly becoming more about personality and individuality”.
