Olivia Buckland has revealed the first look inside the master bedroom she said she fell in love with when it came to buying the new home she shares with Alex Bowen.
The Love Island alum posted an inside look at the room which has incredible high ceilings and wooden beams, as well as amazing views that they look out on to via a romantic balcony.
She spoke about how beautiful she found the room but had big plans in mind when it came to the interior decor her and Alex preferred.
"This room really is so beautiful. I actually don’t mind the decor in this room but it isn't really 'us'," she wrote on The Bowen Home Instagram page.
"We like muted tones & we really don’t like dark wood (as you guys know)thinking slightly more cream/champagne colours too.
"We’ve chosen some wood floor (3rd pic) which we love, think it’ll brighten the room so much with a lovely big rug & lots of textures. I love the beams I just don’t like the colour so we’ll probably match them to the wood floor!" she added.

Olivia posted a picture of how the bedroom is now with cream carpets and matching walls, along with a stand alone television and draped curtains.
But that isn't to the couple's taste, instead they asked followers to swipe across to see the inspiration they are using to achieve their desired look – all white, pale wooden beams and hints of pale pink.
Asking her followers for advice on what they would do with the room, many agreed with her idea to make the room lighter with paler wood.
"I would sand the beams down to the bare natural wood. I love light wooden beams. Enough to keep the character and not hide them away," wrote one person.
"This is beautiful. I love everything black and white so I‘d probably have floors, rugs, walls in white and the rest in black with little hints of pink here and there," suggested another.
The couple have already got stuck into decorating their new house, ripping up carpets, hanging up curtains, and putting their special touch on the interiors.
They've picked out the style of wood they'd like to replace the wooden panelling that already exists in the house and plan to do up the rest of the property in a similar way.
Olivia recently gave a tour of the dreamy home which comes with a grand staircase, games room and a very romantic balcony, and beauty-obsessed reality star has also shown off snaps of her new dressing room and large wardrobes.

She also shared an insight into the lounge which has divided some fans who don't like her idea to make it black.
Olivia shared an inspiration picture which features a huge plasma TV, dark grey curtains and a large dark grey sofa, grey cushions and a black cabinet on which sits some black lamps.
Despite Olivia and Alex’s excitement over the renovations of their lounge area, some fans weren’t convinced that the grey colour scheme would work.
“Not a fan of all the grey … what happened to a bit of colour,” one wrote, whilst another added: “Make use of the natural light and move away from dark depressing colours.”
