Delving deeper than decor to explore the power of home as a path to wellbeing #happyinside

Auction Party

Daytime entertainment series for ITV hosted by Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen. I featured in two episodes (Episode 3 in Brighton, and Episode 9 in Richmond) as team guide and upcycling mentor.

TX August 2011.

Each week two teams scoured local markets for items to up-cycle and auction. All proceeds going to a nominated charity. When the show was hosted in Brighton, my role was as team mentor, advising on what to buy and directing the up-cycling in order to raise as much money as possible.

One of our star pieces was this 50s sideboard (film clip above, post up-cycling below) re-freshed and brilliantly updated by local Brighton artist Julie-Anne Giburt.

Very happy to say that my team won!
