The legendary Sir Rod Stewart has blessed us with his musical talent since the 1960’s, and to that sir, we thank you!
As much as we love his music… we aren’t sure we have the same taste in interior decor.
Rod’s Durrington House mansion in Essex has been a project he has been working on for 2 years and you would think potential purchasers would be queueing up to put in their bids for this mansion.
However, the £5million property is struggling to sell and he’s reportedly knocked £500,000 off the asking price.
It is a truly magnificent mansion on the outside. The garden is exquisite and it even comes with its own football pitch!
Yet the interior isn’t exactly state of the art. Instead of chic and modern, it is more swags and chintz. More frills than fantastic.
The Maggie Mae singer is currently touring and has recently joined the two Mikes on talkSPORT defending his interior design choices, after a journalist commented that his house looks out of date.
Well Rod, we have some ideas that we have put together on a Pinterest board that would make Durrington sell in an instant. With these changes, we think your mansion could be sexy.
Dining Room –
Rod has gone for a traditional manor house look. We feel like this is a little outdated and we would go a different route.
We would opt for a sleek modern look with a bold grey feature wall, tiled floor and modern ceiling lights. This teamed with a classic table would give the dining room a luxury feel.
Our ‘Boston’ mirror from Mirrorworld’s Designer Collection would add light, elegance and substance to the room, and the frames would add that extra touch of luxury.
Living Room –
As we can see, Rod has gone for Victorian Opulence which suits classical pieces.
But we think a touch of modern flair is needed. We would introduce a clean and simple colour scheme as well as neutral furniture with accents of colour.
The Curva mirror from Mirrorworld’s Designer Collection would go perfectly with this room as the simple design allows it to be a piece that doesn’t overshadow the statement furniture, and instead, complements the simplicity of the room.
Rod’s bedroom has swags of style, but it isn’t modern. This frenzy of frills isn’t to everyone’s taste.
Modernising the bedroom would add that touch of class and ooze sophistication.
By using warm lighting and simple decor it would create an opulent room to retreat to.
Our ‘Trio’ mirrors from Mirrorworld’s Designer Collection would add a statement piece and a touch of elegance in the bedroom.
When placed above the headboard, the trio of mirrors will help bounce the warm lighting around the room.
So Rod, when it comes to interior design remember, every picture tells a story.
