BBC One Announces New Interior Design Series Using Virtual Reality | TV
BBC One has announced a new interior design series taking advantage of virtual reality.
Tentatively titled Virtually Home, the BBC describes the show as an “all-new, cutting-edge interior design series featuring people stuck in a design rut.”
They explain: “The show will use virtual reality (VR) to keep people on a budget from making costly interior design mistakes. The series will feature a wide variety of projects across the UK and allow contributors to truly visualize their dream designs in spectacular VR, before implementing them into reality.
The series will feature four of the UK’s leading interior designers – Karen Livingstone Welstead who lives in Glasgow, Russell Sage based in Somerset, Kunal Trehan in Cheshire and Simon Hamilton from London.
“Each will be matched with audience members who have different styles and ideas for transforming a piece from each other or who themselves are in conflict with which direction to look.
Each episode will see the designers come up with two distinct VR designs from the Edinburgh-based studio. Once the contributor decides which design to go forward with, they’ll capture the makeover’s progress in video logs until the result is revealed to the designer at the end of the episode. “
Produced by the creators of Homes Under The Hammer, the 15-part series will air on BBC One later this year.
