Inside Anton Du Beke’s home: Strictly star’s glamorously ‘fringed’ house

4 mins read


Anton Du Beke is Strictly’s longest-serving professional dancer, having competed in all 18 series of the BBC show. While on TV he’s a performer with knack for charming the judges and viewers, at home he’s a loving parent and husband. Anton rarely gives fans a glimpse of his private life on social media.

The bay window is U-shaped and includes black frames with muntins dividing the window into a grid of lines.

On the window sills, a vase of pink and white flowers can be seen along with a plant.

The walls are painted a traditional magnolia colour which provides a neutral back drop.

Colour Consultant, Stylist, Author and Speaker Jules Standish of The Colour Consultancy told Express.co.uk that the colours highlight Anton’s youthfulness. 

She said: “The colours in our interiors can have a positive effect on our moods, and Anton’s use of mint green in his impressive curtains, is a wonderful way to bring natures balancing, harmonious properties indoors.

“Mint is a soft, cool shade of green, and represents fun, youthfulness, and a friendly nature, with an openness to new ideas.

“Magnolia walls are a warm white, with a mix of yellow, which is why they appear cream.

“This is a neutral colour, softer and more inviting than bright white. It represents clarity, cleanliness and freshness and will help make any space look bigger. Due to the yellow base, it has some of the joy, warmth and optimism of this more stimulating and uplifting colour.

“Also, using magnolia as a neutral in a room allows for other stronger, brighter colours to really shine, like the stunning pink flowers on Anton’s windowsill.”

Last year, Anton was complimented by Radio 5 Live host Anna Foster for his backdrop in a conversation from home.

The presenter said at the time: “Anton du Beke, your background, good grief, those beautiful curtains!”

Anton said in response: “I tell you, in our house it’s death by swags and tails let me tell you.

“We’ve got fringing, the whole malarkey. It’s like an abundance of fabric and it’s really quite nice actually.

Blue and yellow floral curtains, wicker storage baskets and wooden floors could be seen.

There was also a framed black and white photo in the background.

The space looked like a ballroom, with the wooden floors and bay windows taking centre stage.

Other videos on Instagram have seen him in front of a chestnut-coloured, wooden book shelf with gardening books on the shelves.

A cream sofa with a blue, fringed cushion and a photo print with a quote on it have also been spotted.

The picture quote reads: “Take life with a pinch of salt, slice of lime and a shot of tequila.”
