Olivia Bowen shows off her dressing room transformation

Olivia Bowen has given fans a glimpse of how she wants her dream nursery to look in her million pound home.

The Love Island star shared the happy news that she was pregnant with her first child on New Years Day.

Since then she and husband Alex Bowen, whom she met on the ITV dating show in 2016, have been busy getting ready for their new arrival.

Estate agent Olivia has revealed she’s been converting a guest bedroom in their huge Essex home into a luxury nursery.

And since they don’t find out the baby’s gender until she’s born in June, she wants the space to be ‘gender-neutral’.

Instead of traditional pinks and blues, Olivia opts for creams and whites, which she says are “so soothing, tranquil and gender-neutral.”

Sharing an inspiring photo of how she wants the finished nursery to look, the 28-year-old said, “We decided to go with the green room with the large central arched window for the nursery.

“I can’t wait to turn it…obviously the baby won’t be here for a while, but of course I’m madly organized and excited to conceive it, so just get it ready.”

She added that one thing that excites her is having her own wallpaper designed for the main wall featuring giraffes and elephants.

Another snap she shared with her 766,000 followers on her “Bowen Home” account shows a model of the room, designed by The Modern Nursery.

Olivia captioned the post: “Safari Nursery Dream. When your vision comes to life through the hands-on work of @themodernnursery.

“I think I’m very excited to see the sky on the ceiling…the room seems to look exactly like I imagined, playful but still quiet and calm.

“This has been such a fun project for me. I think it will fly to the top of the favorite parts list when it’s done! It’s just too adorable, I can’t face it!

Since Olivia and Alex moved into their luxury Essex home in 2020, they’ve regularly shared updates of their renovations.

Completely transforming it to make it their own, they added a home gym, movie theater, and dog shower for their beloved pooches.

There is also a hot tub and outdoor bar and BBQ area, including an all-important wine fridge. The vast garden even has its own mini-lake.

Other standout features of the home include the sweeping black and white staircase with a shimmering 5-foot chandelier at the top, which Olivia says gives it a “warm, fuzzy feel.”

The gorgeous bathroom features a freestanding white tub for a “little slice of spa life at home”.

While the huge master bedroom opens onto its own private balcony overlooking the garden. There’s even a floral installation around the window.

Her “dream kitchen” is another neutrally decorated room with an island and chic bar stools.

Olivia said: “Our favorite thing we had was the boiling hot water tap! This is a game changer for morning tea.
