Interior designers and all round style commentators, Colin & Justin came to global recognition with their UK BBC property flipping documentary ‘The Million Pound Property Experiment.’ Following this, they hosted an armory of hit shows such as ‘How Not To Decorate’, ‘The Farm’, ‘The Estate’, ‘Wedding Belles’, ‘Sixty Minute Makeover’ and ‘Colin & Justin’s Home Heist’ and, in doing so, built up a solid TV presence both sides of the pond. Out with their own shows they have also starred in other series such ‘UK Masterchef’, UK ITV’s ‘Stars In Their Eyes’ and ‘I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here.’
Hosts of VH1’s ‘Valentine’s Music Chart’, occasional design and fashion pundits for ITV’s ‘This Morning’ and annual Red Carpet correspondents for Canada’s City TV, they’ve interviewed a galaxy of stars from Madonna to George Clooney and from Bradley Cooper to Jennifer Lawrence. Though they both freely admit that Ryan Gosling is their favourite celebrity subject.
You’ll also find Colin and Justin as design experts, twice monthly, on Canada’s most popular lifestyle show ‘Cityline’.
Colin & Justin write a weekly column in The Toronto Sun which syndicates to 24 Hours Toronto, 24 Hours Vancouver and The London Free Press. They appear weekly in The Halifax Herald, The Ottawa Citizen, The Red Deer Advocate and The Vancouver Province. They write a column in Cottage Life magazine and another in Reno and Decor. They contribute a fortnightly blog to Huffington Post Canada. As well as these regular outposts, they’ve also contributed to Canada’s Style At Home and Chatelaine magazines. In the UK they composed a weekly style column in the Sunday Mail (for a decade, between 2004 and 2014) and they've written for the UK’s Daily Mail, amongst many other leading British publications. Previously ‘Agony Uncles’ at Closer magazine they were also ‘Celebrity Style Editors’ at Livingetc magazine.
Colin & Justin have a global product line called ‘Colin and Justin Home’ which is available at stores like Winners, Homesense and Marshalls in Canada, in Home Goods and TJ Maxx in America and in TK Maxx in Britain. Their range consists of bedding, toss pillows, table wares, crockery, glass wares, lighting, garden furniture, chairs, sofas, case goods and much, much more.
Colin’s hobbies include being a full time sci-fi nerd, 4x4 off roading, snow shoeing, 80’s European cinema and following the every move of Victoria Beckham - “She’s a British treasure…” quotes the fashion designer’s biggest advocate. Justin, by his own account, lives to Tweet, Facebook and Instagram. He’s a born sharer and full time show off, frequently proclaiming: “What’s the point of doing anything if no-one is listening, reading or watching…” Okay, so he might just have borrowed that line from Nicole Kidman in ‘To Die For’.
Colin and Justin live between Glasgow, London, Toronto and now Haliburton.
