Escape to the Chateau’s Angel Strawbridge launches home furnishings range

Viewers have watched Dick and Angel lovingly transformed their French home on Channel 4’s Escape to the Chateau with colourful designs, such as a memorable harlequin wallpaper made from offcuts found in the attic.

And now fans of the show can enjoy the same designs in their own homes as Angel has included them in her new range of home furnishings.

Angel – who, with her husband Dick Strawbridge, swapped a two-bed flat in Essex for the crumbling French chateau – exclusively told MailOnline Property: ‘It is like a family and real community among the people who watch the show. If you have something from the range, there is a story attached to it.’

The range, which will be sold in shops including Argos and Next, also includes designs based on the Chateau’s walled garden, known as a ‘potagerie’ in French.

One of Angel’s favourite designs is the Heron design, based on the bird that her husband Dick and their daughter Dorothy see every morning at their home called Chateau de La Motte Husson.

Further inspiration for Angel’s collection comes from the chateau’s bamboo garden.

Angel explained: ‘It’s behind the walled garden and we use the bamboo for everything, including as trellis for runner beans.’

And she went on to say about the whole of the collection: ‘We have tried to keep the colours authentic, with every details having some love put into it.’

She added: ‘It is a dream come true. I always wanted to be a designer, but when I was younger I thought this would be in fashion.

‘When you like creating things, every skill you learn puts you on a path you are meant to be on.

‘I would have never said I am an interior designer before but I liked putting together the room designs in the chateau and people have responded well to them. It’s not a bad day job! You find a way in life if you do things that you want to do.’

The range is called The ChateauTM by Angel Strawbridge, and is available in stores nationwide, including Argos and Next.
