The actor moved to the Big Smoke from Bury in September 2022 when he purchased his first property in Dulwich, south London. He has since been transforming his property into a zen, hipster haven, teeming with plush furnishings and pops of bold colour.

Bringing the outdoors inside, Layton has also added a touch of greenery with his myriad house plants. From snake plants to peace lilies, the star has well and truly created a mini jungle in his urban home.

Open-plan living space

Layton's living space is an open-plan dream! The 29-year-old has been working hard behind-the-scenes to create a relaxing, zen space with vibrant red accents.

Adding his own stamp, Layton even designed a snug banquette seating area which he describes as being the "perfect" spot where he can sit back and "chill".

Beyond this, the space really comes to life thanks to the addition of scatter cushions, dried flowers, cosy candles and stand-out artwork.

His dining room

Layton's dining room follows through from his open-plan kitchen. He has renovated a corner of his home and transformed it into a Scandi sun-drenched spot, making it the perfect area for a candlelit dinner.

The area features gorgeous bay windows, a chic chandelier and a retro wooden table surrounded by contrasting wooden chairs.

As for his tableware, Layton has kept things neutral with raffia placemats and gingham napkins. Perfection!

Cosy bedroom
