Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen is the charismatic, flamboyant interior designer that just like Marmite, you either love him or hate him! His sense of individual style can be outrageous and decadent but his popularity is huge and his room creations are certainly a talking point. His unusual and quirky renovations have included Bespoke Glass Balustrades and led to many viewers asking, where his ideas come from? His charismatic smile and quick, witty banter have charmed confused audiences and he has been known to have uttered the phrase “if you are a looking for a bespoke glass balustrade” in one of his more unusual responses.
This self-styled British Interior Designing Guru was born on the eleventh of March 1965 and rose to fame on the BBC Television programme “Changing Rooms”. He also presented the television documentary in which he went “In search of England’s green and Pleasant Land”. He regularly features on two of the most popular BBC Television design series, “The Big Build, and DIY SOS”. On the eleventh of February he entered the Celebrity version of “Who wants to be a Millionaire” with his wife Jackie and together they managed to win £500,000 for their chosen Charity, “Shooting Star Chase” a children’s Hospice.
Whatever your personal opinion is of Lawrence he definitely has a unique style and a flair for the dramatic. His designs are certainly “one of a kind” works of art and his inspirational ideas and creations are memorable to say the least.
