Who doesn’t love snooping around the homes of the rich and famous?

Actress, muse and interior design obsessive Poppy Delevingne is giving people the chance to nose around her digs.

Apparently, Cara’s big sister has been obsessed with paints, swatches and soft furnishings since she was a teen.

Harper’s Bazaar say she used to collect fabric swatches and “pin them onto her wall as if they were a favourite band or actor”.

Her most prized piece of design advice is to think bold. “Don’t be afraid of clashing colours and prints, it only brings vividness to your space,” she said.

Earlier this summer, Poppy and her sister Cara appeared in Architectural Digest talking about their jungle themed €2million L.A. pad, and now she has teamed up with H&M as part of their ‘At Home With...’ to show off her eclectic London abode.

“I love dark, moody interiors, lacquered walls and vintage objects ... A home is about surrounding yourself with things you adore," she said. Very true.

Poppy has lived a pretty gilded life. She was born into an aristocratic family, she grew up in a €10m house in London's Belgravia, is best friends with Sienna Miller and regularly features in the pages of Vogue magazine.

She says her name or background have little to do with her success as an actress.

"I worked really hard, and so if anyone ever made out that it was because of privilege that would really f*** me off," she previously told the Times.

"Yes, it would really piss me off because I’d be, like, hold on a second, don’t let that take away from the fact that I’ve worked my heart and soul out, and I feel like most of the jobs I’ve ever done in my life, those jobs have repeated, not because of my name.

"People would keep bringing me back on because they could depend on me, because I’m never late, I’m not rude, I’m not a bitch, I don’t take things for granted, and when I’m on set I give it 100%. Not because of what my surname is.”
