Viewers of Interior Design Masters with Alan Carr were left baffled by a contestant’s ‘crazy beach bar aesthetic’ as the popular home improvement show returned last night and compared it to ‘Blanche Devereux’s bedroom “.
Aspiring interior designers have been challenged to redesign two-bedroom apartments in a posh Manchester skyscraper.
In teams of two, they had to reimagine a bedroom, home office, and living space in a way that communicated their personal aesthetic, as well as demonstrated compromise.
Fans were left baffled by some of the results, with hair salon owner Peter Anderson’s bedroom proving particularly divisive.

Tropical dream? Taking inspiration from Ibiza and the Bahamas, Peter opted for a wall printed with palm trees and blue paint
Impressed: Judge Matthew Williamson was blown away by Peter’s design decisions and hailed it as a ‘magnificent’ space
One tweeted: “That leafy wallpaper wouldn’t be soothing for a good night’s sleep Peter!” #Masters of interior design.’
Another posted: “Peter needs to calm down with this crazy beach bar aesthetic.”
A third added: “I have some concerns about the Bahama/Ibiza theme. Bamboo? #Masters of interior design.’
But judges Michelle Ogundehin and Matthew Williamson felt otherwise and were blown away by the confident design.
Williamson exclaimed, “Oh my God, I love this space!” That’s wonderful. I love how bold and confident it is… Which was a really dull and dead space. It’s quite incredible. It’s lovely, isn’t it?
The judges were also enthusiastic about the work done by Peter’s design partner, Fran.
Review: Viewers were split on the space, with some comparing it to Golden Girls’ Blanche’s palm tree bedroom
The duo took first place, with Ogundehin and Williamson saying they “demonstrated real design savvy, making the space more efficient without compromising on style or fun.”
The other design that proved divisive was the bedroom by Reading-based Dean Powell, who chose to decorate in shades of sage and mint green.
One tweeted: “Dean has created the kind of bedroom you only see on The Circle #InteriorDesignMasters.”
Another compared it to a “celery asylum”.

Questionable: Some viewers weren’t convinced by Dean’s sage and mint bedroom colors
Once again the judges felt differently and invited Dean and his partner back next week.
Other viewers were completely baffled by theaters in general, with one comparing it to ‘Blue Peter’.
Another one Posted: Others noted that very few models looked practical, with one writing, “So where do you put your clothes in the bedrooms? Where do you put the ironing board and the vacuum cleaner? Where do you put all the shit of life? #masters of interior design.’
Eventually, Richard was sent home. The designer, known for his bold murals on Instagram, had been confident with his “retro modern” style, but it didn’t impress the judges who thought he looked “two-dimensional”.

Williamson said: “You are an artist, a painter. But it’s a very different discipline, doing 3D space, and I think it’s been a tricky transition for you.
Ogundehin added: “You did so well but it’s bigger.” Interior design. It’s hard. It’s really difficult.’
Next week, designers will be challenged to reimagine the rooms of a boutique hotel.
Candidates for the Masters in Interior Design with Alan Carr are competing to win their first official commercial contract, with the Watergate Bay Hotel in Cornwall.
The Masters in Interior Design with Alan Carr continues next Monday at 9pm on BBC1.
