Olivia Bowen transforms £1million mansion into a festive fairytale with life size soldiers and huge tree

OLIVIA Bowen has given fans a glimpse inside her Essex home after transforming it into a winter wonderland.

The Love Island star, 26, showed off her festive pad on Instagram – complete with real life soldiers, lavish decorations and huge extravagant trees.

The reality star has spent the past few months renovating the £1million mansion with husband and fellow Islander Alex, 29.

Taking to Instagram this week, Olivia showed off her latest home features in time for Christmas in a series of snaps.

She proudly shared a photo of the couple's front door, which was decorated with huge garlands, two giant trees and toy soldier figures.

Alongside the snap, she wrote: "This year there is no day too early for Christmas decs…

"I usually don’t upload bits like this here but honestly this is a DREAM to us so it had to be done. More will be revealed over on  @thebowenhome @aminteriorsbydesign you are magicians."

Meanwhile, the hallway boasts a silver and gold colour scheme with green tinsel sprawled across the staircase and two "sassy nutcrackers".

Keeping in with the glamorous Christmas look, Olivia has decorated her tree with several extravagant flower bouquets and glistening fairy lights.

The upcoming festive season marks the second for the couple in their stunning home.

Olivia and Alex moved into the pad last year, and they have now completed renovations with a marble kitchen, huge staircase and four-tier chandelier.

Alex previously admitted he and Olivia are moving slowly closer to starting a family of their own.

Opening up to The Sun, he said: "I think maybe babies are next on the card before we do get a bigger dog.

"Obviously we’ve both still got a lot of things going on in our career – I just feel like you can’t really plan it, because there’s always something else going to come up. So when it happens, it happens."
