Design expert Lizzie Beesley talks us through what trends Mrs Hinch will use in new home

"Colour has been at the forefront of Mrs Hinch’s inspiration."

Essex cleaning sensation Sophie Hinchliffe, more commonly known as Mrs Hinch, recently announced that she is moving from her iconic crushed velvet home, into a £1.1 million five-bed farmhouse.

Mrs Hinch showed mood boards with followers, revealing how she plans to design the utility, pantry and washroom and after reviewing them, design expert Lizzie Beesley, has come back to us on what steps she thinks Hinchliffe will do next.

After reviewing the trends from the mood boards, Lizzie Beesley, Head of Design at kitchen specialists Magnet commented:

​"It’s clear that Mrs Hinch is a leader in trends. She’s captured the current move towards a warm, neutral palette. These comforting tones enrich any environment and provide the perfect canvas for stronger colours and patterns.

Her choice of matt stone, classic shaker cabinetry, washed timber and matt black handles all pull from classic Scandinavian styling. Perfect for a utility room, where you want to enhance the scent of freshly washed laundry with warmth and comfort.

Experts at creating cosiness in their homes, the Scandinavians understand the balance of room. Mrs Hinch has taken this design principle and beautifully balanced hidden storage and function with open display shelving and cabinets, finishing it off with the key feature of a utility, the Belfast sink."


Speaking on what colour trends Mrs Hinch will use, Beesley says she has no doubt that Hinch will have her finger on the pulse of what is in fashion;

"Colour has been at the forefront of Mrs Hinch’s inspiration. This is no surprise as Colour is currently the big trend in the UK marketplace.

From dark matt greens to pastel pinks, aqua blues and neutral pebble, it’s all about choosing the colour that works for you. Colour has not just permeated the furniture though; handles, worksurfaces and appliances are all now available in exciting finish options."

When asked what will be the big difference between Hinch's style in this house versus her house house Beesley said;

"The space in her new home opens up many design advantages, size and light being the most notable.

Her new kitchen is a perfect space for a statement central island, a run of tower appliance units and a large range cooker, all balanced with an elegant bank of glazed dresser-style storage.

Whether she chooses a classic shaker style or a modern minimal look, it’ll be all about the colour and material palette used in such a large room. The kitchen needs to anchor the space, allowing the rest of the room to flow.

It’s an exciting project!"
