As you would expect, Faye and Teddy’s home is just as glamorous as the pair and features a dressing room, walk-in wardrobe and large inglenook fireplace.
The couple moved into the property in November and since then they’ve set about making it into the place for them with a few little tweaks.
From fresh paint to new carpets, the southeast home is fast taking shape into the minimalist and neutral abode the reality stars dreamt of.
And opening the doors to their lounge area as they take us on an exclusive tour of their house, Faye says that the room is their “favourite room in the whole house”.
But the pair admit it did take quite some time to get the room looking exactly how they envisioned.
“It’s been through some turbulences,” says former financial consultant Teddy, 26.
Admitting they “fell out” about the gorgeous room, Faye says: “We fell out about this room on multiple occasions.
“Actually I wouldn’t say we fell out but we had a tiff. We had one sofa that was similar to this but a hideous colour.
“Teddy really loved it but I said: ‘No it’s going,’ and I’m so glad that I did," Faye said.
Revealing he ended up preferring their second choice, Teddy added: “I’m glad, you won that battle and I’m very happy about it.”
Faye continued: “Now we have this stunning sofa that was bespoke made down in Exeter in Devon, which we’re really lucky for.”
The colour of the walls in the lounge also proved to be a bone of contention.
“The wall colour we fell out a little bit about as well,” says Faye.
Teddy adds: “The wall was already painted a nice colour and a lot of work went in with a painter and she walked in and was like: ‘No I don’t like it!’”
Faye explains: “I didn’t like it. I walked in and thought it looked like custard. Teddy went out to the kitchen and got a lemon and banana to prove to me it wasn’t yellow and now we have this colour as I won again!”
And Teddy admits that once again his other half was right! He laughs: “To be honest again I’m going to say with her again it is better and makes the whole room warmer. There is method to her madness!”
The cosy room also features a huge inglenook fireplace, which Faye says was a huge selling point and a “winner” when it came to them choosing the home.
Next up is the loved-up pair’s modern kitchen, and Teddy says that when it comes to housework things are split equally.
“A lot of 50/50 action happens in this kitchen,” says Teddy.
Faye adds: “This the hub of our home, we love cooking.
“We fell in love with it. We have the bar area which is ideal when we’re cooking as the cooker is just the other side. And we have all the built-in appliances because we’re lazy.”
Teddy goes on to say that the kitchen is “good for entertaining, which is a good Segway into the dining area.”
The open plan dining area features a gorgeous glass table, which is surrounded by six stylish boucle dining chairs.
Opening up about decorating the room, Devon-born Faye says: “Our dining space, we wanted it to be super neutral, we fell in love with these chairs straight away.”
The table also features a beautiful bouquet of flowers, which the star sweetly revealed Teddy is often gifting her!
And the duo’s master bedroom features a neutral and gold vibe, with Faye admitting she wanted the room to have a “classy” feel.
“We designed the bed,” she says. “We wanted to make sure we had the comfiest bed ever, which we definitely have! We still need to put the finishing touches to it.”
As well as their bespoke bed with designer headboard, the room also features his and hers wardrobes and an ensuite bathroom.
And if his and hers wardrobes wasn’t enough, the Love Island lovebirds also have a dressing room and walk-in wardrobe.
EXCLUSIVE TO OK! VIP CLUB
The large room only has neutral clothes on display to go with the colour code of the room.
Faye, who admits she often steals her boyfriend’s clothes, laughs: “Teddy chooses his clothes but I chose what’s allowed in the dressing room.”
Meanwhile, the final room of the tour is the pair’s guest room, which features a huge super-king size bed with a plus headboard.

“We wanted to keep it warm and fresh,” says Faye. “We chose to give our guests a super-king size bed, and I don’t know if that was a bit of mistake! No one wants to leave.”
It’s no wonder the pair say their siblings over who gets to stay in the stunning room!
