As one of the less over-sharing celebrities out there Fearne is fairly private when it comes to her home and personal life, so we’ve rarely ever caught more than a few glimpses of the place Fearne calls home. That is, until now, as the broadcaster and author has partnered with eBay on a project called Happy Spaces, through which she has opened the doors of her home to given an exclusive look at the spots around her house that bring her joy, as well as shared her home styling tips.
Fearne Cotton has also curated an edit on eBay so we can all copy her calm yet joyful style.
First up is her cosy and relaxing reading nook, with a big velvet teal armchair taking centre stage and colourful textured cushion and throws for ultra-cosy vibes. A keen vintage shopper, Fearne has accessorised the space with timeless pre-loved wooden side tables and a quirky vintage flamingo lamp.
‘There are many ways a reading nook can improve your sense of wellbeing,’ says Fearne. ‘Adding candles to a reading space will bring soothing lighting to your self-care ritual. Processing calming smells stimulates the production of serotonin and dopamine to regulate mood, so lighting some whilst you read is a great way to de-stress.’
Outside is what Fearne’s calls her yogi calm zone. An at-home oasis, she has managed to create an ‘indoor outdoor’ area by filling it with lots of hard and soft furnishings in a muted colour palette for calming vibes. Textured cushions, pouffes and throws alongside lots of bamboo and rattan create a serene and grounded atmosphere. Key to the space is the pre-loved refurbished rattan egg chair, natural jute handwoven pouffe and a little vintage wicker side table.
Fearne Cotton says: ‘Adding little decorative touches to a space is a lovely way to accessorise your home, but they can be functional too! For example, a water jug and glasses not only look nice but are pretty helpful when it comes to staying hydrated. I also keep my vintage incense burner nearby, for when I want the space to have that added scent of relaxation.’
