Inside Donna Air’s amazing new stone Cotswolds home she designed herself with floating fireplace and 150-year-old bath

TV star Donna Air has given fans a look inside the incredible Cotswold home she designed herself.

The actress showed off the amazing space inside the barn conversion via a short video on social media.


Heading into the spacious living area kitted out in shades of cream and taupe, the 41-year-old admitted: "This is my favourite room in the house."

She went on to reveal: "It used to be a tractor showroom – an old barn which was probably left derelict for over 50 years."

Showing her desire to be environmentally friendly with her interior design, Donna, who once starred in Byker Grove alongside Ant and Dec, added: "Everything in this room has been recycled, upcycled."

Pointing at the black wrought iron stairs, she explained they "came from a old spitfire machine gun factory."

A central feature of the space is a contemporary fireplace which gives the appearance of floating in the air.

RECYCLED AND UPCYCLED

While full length windows gave a glimpse of wooden deck chairs looking out over the stretch of greenery.

Cream bubble-style lamps with weave effect lampshades are dispersed around the room, while the terracotta sofa adds a pop of colour.

The mother-of-one described her interior style as "very eclectic, I love colour, I love warmth" and "relaxed, comfortable, organic".

As expected of a barn conversion, there's plenty of brick walls, stone and wood on show throughout the property.

In the mezzanine level bedroom, a 150-year-old copper bath takes pride of place.

"It was sourced from a derelict French castle," explained Donna, who designed the space with the help of OKA, a luxury British interiors brand.

In addition to this, hanging copper ceiling lights hover over a beautifully dressed dining table, next to sloped windows on the ground floor.

The former Big Breakfast host has had stints on Celebrity MasterChef, Dancing on Ice and Splash! over the years.

This has been in addition to parts in Hollyoaks, Hotel Babylon and BBC divorce drama The Split.

She's mum to 17-year-old Freya, her daughter with multimillionaire animal conservationist Damian Aspinall.

Other high profile relationships have included Kate Middleton’s younger brother James, before the pair split in 2018.
