Ellie wrote on her personal account @throughmykeyhole: ‘Sneaky little pic from my living room. Things are starting to take shape now and I hope to have a fully functional salon the day after tomorrow night.
“I can’t wait to share it in all its glory. Radiators, paper, blue, I just live for everything. Everyone thought I was mad when I said I had bright orange heaters, but how cool are they?!?! ‘
The Gogglebox star’s unique interior taste was certainly eye-catching, with bright orange radiators set against limited-edition coral, blue, brown, and cream wallpaper from Graham and Brown.
On the unpainted walls, Ellie contrasted the vibey heater with a more subtle gray blue paint from Valspar.

But not everything has turned out well for the couple as they work together to create their dream home in Leeds.
Ellie admitted in a separate article: “I’ve been a bit of a standstill for the past two weeks with work / things going wrong.
But progress is finally being made this weekend !! Sneaky pic of color that goes in the living room! Hoping to finish all the painting that needs to be done in the living room today.
“Wish me luck for the hottest weekend of the year so far! My breasts are already sweating. ‘
In their dining room, Ellie got herself a gorgeous custom table made from salvaged scaffolding planks with two benches that slide underneath.
The star explained that she could also have three chairs to go to one side of the table and keep the second bench for when they need extra seating.
Behind the table, Nat had chipped off the old plaster of their original fireplace to reveal the red brick exposed below.
Ellie told her followers: ‘I still have no idea what else I’m going to do here, but I just knew I had to sort this out first because it’s such a messy job! I have dust in places that I didn’t know the dust could reach.

Ellie announced that she bought her home with Nat in March and can’t wait to tell her followers about the purchase.
She wrote at the time: “Soon our house… We are planning to exchange [at the] end of May / June. I’m so excited.’
Posting a photo of the 1930s semi-detached house, Northerner Ellie added, “We’re so lucky the current owners have kept it in pristine condition so we can move in straight in and get things done as we go! “

Ellie also joked that her partner banned her from browsing online retailer Facebook Marketplace.
“Nat has banned me from looking on the Facebook Marketplace, but I can’t wait to come in and start making this house our home,” she joked.
Sharing a second photo hours later, Ellie showed off the property’s back garden, thanking fans for their overwhelming response.
She shared, “This is the view from the back garden! Can’t wait to sit on that patio in the sun with a nice cold beveragino! ‘
Ellie also said her beloved pet dogs would love the outdoor space, but explained that she will not post any photos of the interior of her new home yet, out of respect for the privacy of the current occupants.
Detailing the layout of the house, she continued, “@mickmadgeandmorris will love to play in the backyard and brucey bonus is already secure as the current owners have small dogs too!
“The dorma bedroom is the master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and I hope that one day when we have saved enough pennies we can extend to the back, folding doors, velux windows, you know the exercise!
Ellie, who appears on the Channel 4 show alongside her sister Izzi Warner, has been dating her boyfriend Nat for over two years and tends to keep her relationship out of the limelight.
