What's It All About? Property guru Kirstie Allsopp doesn't just help people find houses - she's branching out into furnishing them as well. In her latest series, she's on a mission to show us that buying a new place doesn't automatically mean you have to take a trip to a certain well-known Scandinavian retailer in search of flat-pack wardrobes and cheap tea lights. If you've got the skills, know the right places to look and understand what 'upcycling' means, you could kit the place out for next to nothing.
To prove her point, she's opening her own shop in Glasgow, which will be stocked with eye-catching furniture that's been sourced for free, ranging from simple, but stylish, basics such as beds and tables, to high-end items like marble fireplaces.
She'll also be helping people to transform their own homes, starting with that of Glasgow couple Harry Blackwood and Gillian Bland, who have very different tastes in interior decoration.
Look Out For: Kirstie's team of helpers - salvage expert and designer Charis Williams, inventor and furniture hacker Max McMurdo, and artist and upcycler Lee Baker.
Kirstie Allsopp says: "We just can't live in a world where everybody who moves into a new home furnishes it entirely with new stuff. Anyone can get this stuff for free."
