Jools Oliver sends fans into a frenzy with snaps of the VERY palatial decor in her £8.9M Grade II listed London home (including a £2K super king bed and a wood-fired oven for Jamie)

  • Over the weekend Jools, 42, send fans wild with snap of her Louis XV bed
  • She and Jamie bought seven-bedroom property in Hampstead, London last year
  • Kitchen features a central island, a cream AGA and a cast iron oven for pizza
  • 31-foot-long formal living room opens on to the back garden 

  • After splashing out millions on a new Grade II-listed pad in the upmarket London suburb of Hampstead last year, it's no surprise that Jools and Jamie Oliver have created a home to be proud of. 
    Over the weekend mother-of-five Jools, 42, a former model, treated her Instagram followers to a glimpse inside her very luxurious bedroom, as she shared a snap of her son Buddy Bear lounging on the bed with his boots on. 
    However, fans were more interested in her enormous Louis XV bed complete with gilt trim, very similar to a model from The French Bedroom Company, which costs £2,195 for a Super King Size. 
    And it's certainly by no means the only luxurious room in the historic seven-bedroom home, which the Olivers bought last year for £8.95 million before setting about overhauling its '70s-style interior.

    The Olivers clearly enjoy reading in their spare time, if the stack of books propped in one corner is anything to go by, and an on-trend fringed lamp sits on the bedside table.  
    Other snaps shared by Jools with her 515,000 Instagram followers of her children Poppy, 15, Daisy, 14, Petal, eight, Buddy, seven, and 16-month-old River, offer tantalising glimpses of their opulent surroundings - including a chic piano room and a traditional nursery for the youngest.

    THE KITCHEN

    The rustic kitchen features a huge central island for the family to gather around, with storage for crockery and tools .
    A dresser with multiple drawers is another standout feature, as well as the obligatory AGA, while coloured glass pendant lights add a splash of brightness. 
    Implements such as pots and pans hang on the walls within easy reach for chef Jamie who no doubt makes plenty of use of the traditional stone oven for making bread and pizzas. 

    FAMILY ROOM

    The family also has the choice of sitting down to eat at the lengthy dining table bedecked with a candelabra in the paneled living area, where they can also relax on a cosy, bright pink sofa. 
    Jools' candid snaps suggest the family go all out for Christmas - a picture posted to her Instagram reveals an enormous tree, colourful pom poms hanging from the ceiling, and a row of matching tartan stockings.

    PIANO ROOM

    The mother of five recently shared a snap of her blonde son Buddy, dressed in his school uniform, sitting at the piano.  

    FAMILY BATHROOM

    An enormous bathroom decorated in shades of green boasts a a free-standing bath and his-and-hers bathroom sinks. And it's just one of the three full and two half bathrooms in the property. 
    The Grade II-listed house, which dates back to the 17th century, was marketed as having a beautiful interior, including 'wonderful' panelled rooms.
    Spanning 5,700 square feet over four floors linked by a 'particularly fine' staircase, the property boasts period features, such as antique floorboards and thick moldings.
    On the main floor there is a paneled foyer, a similarly paneled dining room, and a 31-foot-long formal living room opening on to the back garden.

    Planning applications lodged with Camden Council revealed that the Olivers wanted to re-fit a guest ensuite bathroom and turn one of their seven bedrooms into a family bathroom.
    They also applied to take out arched openings to the kitchen and demolish partition walls which were installed by previous owners to create an existing bathroom and kitchenette.
    The updated home includes a play room, family room, wine cellar, and boudoir as well as storage areas.

    While the period features and carefully chosen decor lend an opulent feel to the rest of the house, the children's rooms are more relaxed.
    River's nursery features classic wooden toys and quirky prints, while a snap of eight-year-old Petal showed off a shabby chic vibe with an upcycled chest of drawers, floral wallpaper and bunny rabbit fairy lights. 
    Eldest son Buddy sleeps in a £1,895 tree house bed in natural limewood from children's furniture company Nubie.
    Naturally the house also features pieces from Jools' Mothercanre range Little Bird, including a rainbow rug she'd pilfered from the nursery and placed in front of the fireplace in another room.       

    Hot property: Celeb chef Jamie's luxury homes   

    Jamie and Jools Oliver snapped up their Grade II listed Hampstead home in 2015. 
    Before that, the family lived in Primrose Hill, where Jamie had knocked two neighbouring houses into one to form an enormous 10-bedroom mansion for his growing brood. 
    But when it came to selling it in 2016, the celebrity chef was forced to once again split it into two separate houses, after failing to attract a buyer for the combined property, which had spent six months on the market with a price tag of £12million. 
    The couple's neighbours in the glitzy area had included the likes of Chris Evans, David Walliams, and the artist Sam Taylor-Johnson. 
    The family also has a country manor in Clavering, Essex, which is also home to Jamie's parents' pub, The Cricketers.
