Channel 4 is looking for the most ‘outrageous’ homes in Manchester to feature on a new series
Outrageous Homes will meet people across the country who "decorate their homes without fear".
Big fan of interior design? Did one DIY project lead to another during lockdown, and now you’re a bit of a professional?
Reckon your home could be considered “outrageous” enough to be on TV?
Well, Channel 4 has announced that a brand-new series is on the way from Salford-based production company, Beyond Productions North, and according to the synopsis, it’s set to see presenter Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen – called “the king of interior design” – celebrate our great British visionaries, our cherished eccentrics, and most-importantly, our proud-to be different homeowners.
The four-part series, titled Outrageous Homes, will meet people across the country who are said to “value originality” and “decorate their homes without fear”.
With a casting call now open and people from Greater Manchester urged to get in touch, Laurence will visit properties across the UK with wild, wonderful, and “truly outrageous domestic decor” to discover why the homeowners dare to be different with their designs, and how they did it, as well as delving into how much it all cost.
Along the way, Laurence will also meet some of the architects, designers, and decorators who helped bring the bold and creative visions to life too.
“There is no such this such thing as bad design,” Channel 4 insists.
Speaking ahead of the filming of the new series, Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen said: “At last, a property show that turns its back on delusions of blandeur and instead celebrates homes that take OTT to another level of fabulous.
“In fact, we’ll be filming in spaces of such outrageousness, that I’ll be the most understated thing on screen.”
“This is an altogether different property series, so as the epitome of extravagance and eccentricity, Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen is the perfect person to host it,” added Deborah Dunnett – Commissioning Editor for Channel 4.
“Who wants uniformity anyway?”
Damon Pattison – Creative Director at Beyond Productions – continued: “We’re all guilty of following design trends, so by taking a sneak peek into this fabulous world of homeowners who decorate to their heart’s desire, we hope to inspire the nation to do the same.”
