My Home Rocks: Renovation Bay Bee!

It really struck me when I put together the products inspired by today’s My Home Rocks, how crisp and zesty the colour scheme is – it really suits a 1960s home, while seeming modern too, but enough from me, meet this month’s guest home!


My Home Rocks because it is full of love and happiness, but also I think My Home Rocks because we have been able to make it into a home that we love.

We moved here about 2.5 years ago and it was like stepping into a 1960’s timewarp, the kitchen was original and the bathroom was completely turquoise and brown, but it was all ours to turn into what we wanted. We have loved being able to transform each room into just what we want.

My favourite room in the house is my bedroom, every house we have lived in we always left our bedroom until last, but it never has been that special. This one I was going to make sure it was special and a room that we could escape to and is just ours.

Then my next favourite place is my lounge, we had a large stone fireplace with a old gas fire but we transformed it with a solid oak beam and a electric heater which looks like a real log burner. So many people think it is real!

Pictures are a very important thing in my home, I love capturing our family and have created a photo wall in the hallway. My visitors also love seeing pictures of us all and when the children were young. The dogs are even featuring in it too!

Running a house of 5 needs a little bit of organisation, which is why I love my meal planner in the kitchen.

Recently we renovated our son’s bedroom, I wanted to push my colour boundaries a bit in his room. So we went for blue, grey and yellow. I could have easily gone for the grey pendant but went for this bright yellow pendant and I so glad I did. He loves his new room and for a pre teen it is a well needed get away space for him.
