Alan Carr has awkward moment on The One Show as Priyanka Chopra Jonas mistakes him for interior designer

Alan Carr may be known to UK audiences as one of the nation’s leading stand-up comedians and chat show hosts, but to busy Hollywood star Priyanka Chopra Jonas, he might as well be an interior designer.

Alan Carr standing in front of a computer: During an appearance on The One Show, Priyanka Chopra Jonas mistook Alan Carr for an interior designer.

And, to be fair, considering the Chatty Man host was appearing on The One Show to promote the next series of Interior Design Masters, you can definitely forgive Priyanka for thinking that’s exactly what Alan does for a living.

Also appearing on the BBC show to promote her new book Unfinished, Priyanka provided awkwardness vampires with an absolute feast when she told Alan that what he does is “an integral part of most people’s lives”.

“We just finished doing up our house, just now in LA,” she began. “And it was the first time in about 15 years that I’ve spent time picking colours and cushions, so I think what you do is such an integral part of most people’s lives. So thank you,

Introducing The Expert, A New Digital Platform For Interior Design, Founded By Designer Jake Arnold

Entering into a new business with your childhood best friend might sound risky to some, but for British, Los Angeles-based interior designer Jake Arnold and tech entrepreneur and high school friend Leo Seigal it was a no brainer.

The 30-year-old Arnold, who moved to Los Angeles from London years ago, is a celebrity interior designer who has designed homes for Chrissy Teigen and John Legend, Rashida Jones, Aaron Paul and Sophia Bush. When the country began lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the duo moved in together. It wasn’t until Arnold began receiving hundreds of direct messages on Instagram from people all over the world asking for design advice. 

“I was blown away by the number of people every single day messaging Jake with design questions as if he’s design Siri,” Seigal says. “Jake didn’t have the time, as he was working with his retainer clients.”

Seigal, who has helped launch several startups in Silicon Valley and beyond, and Arnold came up with the idea to create Zoom consultations for a fee

Interior design tips for young millionaires | Jack Marshall’s column

Ferran Torres (credit @ferrantorres7 Insta)
Ferran Torres (credit @ferrantorres7 Insta)

It was a picture of Ferran Torres, a young Spanish professional footballer who recently moved to Manchester City from his hometown club of Valencia.

Here was a young man with the world at his feet. Employed by one of the world’s biggest sporting entities and one of the brightest talents Spain – a country to football what Switzerland is to watchmaking – has, his weekly wage amounts to something in the tens of thousands of pounds.

But the picture was tragic.

The i newsletter cut through the noise

In a city-centre apartment bursting at the seams with the kind of square-footage that a 20-year-old simply does not have the first clue what to do with, Ferran sits desolately on a sofa so silver, gaudy, and garish only a footballer could voluntarily purchase it. Next to him is what looks like an errant bed pillow masquerading as a sofa cushion.

The rug under the couch is Manchester-sky grey and in the worryingly austere background is the discarded box for a PS5, a solo gaming kit designed for swift pack-up-and-go, and a gaming chair that probably cost more than my house.

Interior Design is a partnership of coordinated moves

Having been an almost lifelong folk dancer, the metaphor comes easily! From San Francisco to Bulgaria, my comparison fits!

Interior Design is a partnership of coordinated moves that lead to harmony with appropriate rhythms and a finale that delivers the Vision. How a successful Interior Design project goes together depends on things like the synchronized application of all the elements that knit the details together!

Folk dancing requires focus and concentration — so you won’t find yourself way out in left field somewhere, with your circle or partner somewhere else! Sometimes, you are not familiar with the group or a new partner; and that takes confidence! The parallels abound, and I never cease to be amazed at how the moves line up, and the similarities between dance and design reveal themselves.

Interior Design is an invitation to establish a working familiarity with ever-new connections. The obvious first would be Client and Interior design expert. We introduce each other with the same symbolic trust as the bow and curtsy that starts a folk dance. We

Interior design trends to look out for in 2021

Trends in the homewares market have been duly informed by the persistent, lingering and insidious threat of the Covid-19 pandemic. Home is where we’ve been this year, and home is where, it appears, we’ll be staying until further notice. Spending so much time at home has provided us with the opportunity, pursued or not, to assess what it is that we really need from our homes to improve our lives. We have had the chance to consider how our spaces, both before and during the pandemic, can be reconfigured or enhanced in some way to make our daily tasks and routines easier and more pleasurable.

Having put the question of 2021 homeware trends to some top industry spokespeople, the presiding forecast for the New Year seems to be (no drumroll necessary) homeliness. What we want from our homes is a sense of escape from the outside world; a cocoon closeness to protect and comfort us. As Emma Deterding, the founder of Kelling Designs and KD Loves ( puts it, “with the vast majority of us spending more time at home, there has been a big shift in people redecorating to refresh their homes, making sure that they are
