At Home With…Becky {The Spirited Puddle Jumper}

Welcome back to my homes and interiors series where I’ll be introducing you to a different blogger and their home each month. I am a nosy creature and love nothing more than checking out someone’s home; I think it says so much about a person, don’t you?

This month I would like to introduce you to Becky, from The Spirited Puddle Jumper. In her own words Becky is ‘a digital marketing bod, blogger and interiors and travel enthusiast, who strongly believes that you can never have enough coffee‘. We like her already!

Becky has two children, 6 year old Freddie and 4 year old Sasha, with another little one due any day now. Let’s find out about their home…

Where do you live and how long have you lived in your home? 

I live in a 3 bedroom post-war house in South-East London, and we’ve lived here for 6 months now.

What were the first impressions of your home? 

When we first viewed the house on RightMove, I actually liked the inside of the house as the rooms were large and I saw the potential that it had, but refused to go and see it initially because of the garden! The garden is whopping (120ft and wide too), but it’s tiered so I thought it totally unsuitable for young children. However, once persuaded by Adam to view it, I could see its potential and that we could create an amazing and unique outdoor play area for the children in a year or two.

Children's Bedroom

Have you had any major work done? 

Yes. Already! We had a wall knocked down between the existing kitchen and dining room to make one huge space, opened up the tiny back doors and added bifolds, had the floor levelled (it was wonky) and all the pipework and electrics re-done. We’ve also had the upstairs bathroom totally re-done (you can see pictures of Becky’s fabulous new bathroom on her blog).

What is your favourite room in the house? 

Definitely the kitchen. I always dreamed of a kitchen like the one we have now, as it’s so large and such a sociable space. I still pinch myself every day that it’s ours and often stare at it before turning the lights off when we go to bed (saddo!)
 

Is there anything that you would change about your home if you could? 

Probably the garden if I’m being honest. We will be able to make it child-friendly and fabulous, but we’ve discovered that it will cost us a lot more money than we thought to do what we want and to get it this way. A long, flat garden would’ve been much easier!

What is your next interiors project that we can look forward to seeing on your blog? 

We’ve started cracking on with the garden, although I don’t think the children will get their play area until next summer but never mind.
 
Internally, it’s mostly cosmetic – decorating the hallway, doing something with the downstairs bathroom, and I have a month to get the baby’s room styled but I know what I want to do here. Also, just adding little touches like pictures and accessories as I’m inspired by things I see all the time. Long-term, we want to do a loft conversion and put two bedrooms up there for the older children, but I’m not sure I can face any more building work for a year or two!

Don’t you just love Becky’s style? I adore the crisp white fresh look, teamed with bold accent colours – it works really well. And if you want to find out where Becky sourced any of the gorgeous accessories dotted around her home, you can catch up with her on Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter and Facebook. Thank you for sharing your home with us Becky and we look forward to baby news very soon!

    What a fabulous home! I can’t believe how much work she’s done in six months. I would be very excited by a garden that big, level or otherwise! Although I do know that gardens are an awful lot of work…

      Yep. A big garden is sometimes a curse rather than a blessing! She really has done so much hasn’t she? The kitchen isn’t dissimilar to yours 🙂

    Thank you for linking up with #Bloggershomes, we love reading about others people’s home transformations. Can’t wait to see the garden project although no doubt it will be the most stressful job.

    I love Becky’s style. I especially like the bold use of colour in the lounge and her beautiful kitchen. I wish her look with her garden transformation, sounds like she has a lovely space to work with. #homeetc

    I agree! I love the freshness of everything, and the addition of a bold colour. It’s gorgeous and the room sizes are fabulous! #HomeEtc

    I’m thinking of doing a feature wall that lovely blue in our new lounge. Looks like a beautiful home #bloggershomes

    I’m exactly the same Suzanne, peeping into people’s homes is pretty much my favourite thing to do! I must meet up with Becky soon, we’re pretty sure we live very close to each other X #HomeEtc

    I LOVE having a nosey in other people’s homes!! I’m lucky that Becky has linked lots of her renovations up to Home Etc so I’ve seen the before, during and after process! Can’t believe they’ve been in the house nearly 6 months — feels like yesterday that she said they were on the move. And WHAT a fab space it is! Thanks so much for sharing Suzanne! xx #HomeEtc

    Oh I hadn’t seen this series before. Great idea. I’ve seen some of Becky’s posts over on #HomeEtc over the months and they are fab. Such great taste.
