Speaking to OK! Magazine, Gok, best known for his TV show How To Look Good Naked, explained that he enjoys eclectic interiors and ‘doesn’t want anything to match’. The result is a kaleidoscope of colours, patterns and textures.
The living room, divided in two by an archway, is painted in a deep teal colour with dark wood accents. There is a cosy fire in one half of the space, with three large sofas for guests, and in the other there is an old-fashioned drafting desk.
One of Gok’s favourite pieces is his TV mirror, mounted above the fireplace, which allows him to conceal the technology. It is surrounded by an opulent gold frame that adds to the sense of grandeur in the room.
Ready to entertain: Along the wall of the dining room are Gok’s DJ decks, where he loves to spin tunes for guests
Opulent: The reception room is decorated in a flamboyant opera-inspired wallpaper and features a faux blossom tree
Making magic: The kitchen, pictured, is where Gok loves to whip up his scrumptious meals for dinner party guests
Quiet corner: When the weather is warm enough, Gok enjoys eating breakfast outside in the courtyard
Another highlight is the open-plan kitchen-diner, which is designed for entertaining and long dinner parties with friends.
Gok explained he loves nothing more than whipping up a feast for loved ones and then taking to the DJ decks to keep the party going.
Outside the designer has a breakfast table and a delightful corner covered in faux foliage and decorated with fake songbirds.
Upstairs, as one might expect of a stylist, Gok has an impressive in-built wardrobe housing his meticulously organised collection of clothes.
Trendy: The living room, separated into two areas, features built-in bookcases and plush sofas for relaxing

There are also at least two bedrooms: one with a soft blue and white wallpaper and the other covered in a deep floral print. His beloved dog Dolly sleeps in a dog bed on his bed.
But despite the effort Gok has clearly put into the space, he doesn’t expect to be there forever.
‘I’m so emotionally attached to my current home, a Georgian townhouse on the cusp of Covent Garden and Bloomsbury, I even like the bits that are wrong with it,’ he said in a 2017 interview.
‘I’ll never stay in one place for long, though — I’m a serial adulterer when it comes to houses.’
Attention to detail: Gok enjoys creating playful corners of curiosity with his candles, coffee table books and accessories
Cleverly concealed: Gok said one of his favourite pieces is this mirror TV, pictured, which is housed in an ornate gold frame
