Inside Holly Willoughby’s £3m London home with huge allotment and £60 designer dishes as she loses war with neighbours

HOLLY Willoughby has lost a battle to extend her £3million six-bedroom home – but it's still absolutely amazing inside and even has a huge allotment in the garden.

The This Morning star, 40, and husband Dan Baldwin, 46, wanted to add a first-floor side and rear extension to their Edwardian London house.

But several local residents fired off letters of objection to the council, complaining the building work would cause disruption.

Holly and Dan – who share children Harry, 12, Belle, ten, and six-year-old Chester – have faced an uphill struggle to extend their home since buying it in 2011.

The TV power couple originally wanted to build a two-storey extension but the plans were thrown out five years ago.

They lodged an appeal but it was dismissed by a planning inspector, and then submitted scaled-down plans for a one-storey extension in April.

It was Holly and Dan's 14th planning application since buying the place for £2.8million in 2011, but permission has again now been refused.

Here we take a look inside.

£60 designer dishes

Holly has given her 6million Instagram followers a sneak peek of her and Dan's gorgeous house over the years.

From a dreamy kitchen to spacious open plan living areas, let's just say Holly' £3 million family home is the stuff of home interior goals.

And judging by her social media posts, the fashionista prefers neutral tones for her interiors.

With plenty of white walls, marble surfaces and parquet floorboards, Holly has displayed timeless taste when it comes to decorating her home.

Posting a photo of one of her homemade Sunday roasts, the star showed off her enviable collection of pricey Emma Bridgewater tableware costing around £60 per plate.

Cat lover

And like a woman after our own hearts, she has also treated fans to snippets of her living space through photos of her beloved cat.

Whether she's sprawling across her bed – which she recently revealed she goes commando in – or diving underneath the stylish grey sofa, Holly proves she isn't too precious about her furniture.

And as a mum of three kids under the age of nine, Holly doesn't let her tidiness interfere with her children's playtime.

In one photo, the mum shared a snap of her three kids – Harry, eight, Belle, six, and Chester, three – sprawled out on the living room floor with an assortment of toys.

And Holly gave fans a glimpse into her garden with a photo of Belle playing with a pretty pink-and-purple doll house.

Green fingers

It also seems the presenter has green fingers and enjoys planting seeds with her kids including sweet peas which flower during the summer months.

The family have been planting vegetables in their huge allotment.

And, clearly a lover of flowers, she showed there's beautiful wisteria bush creeping up the side of the red brick walls.

But despite her feline friend and three kids Holly still manages to keep her home spic and span.

With plenty of fur throws and grey blankets covering all her furniture, Holly also keeps her living space looking homely with plenty of cut flowers and candles dotted round the place.

And if you ask us, Holly's mansion is the perfect blend of stunning show home and relaxed family living space.
