A COUPLE who have worked hard to transform their new build into a colorful ‘happy house’ and love when people are surprised to look inside.
Mel shared her home renovation on her social media pages on her A Whole New Build account.
In a recent TikTok Video Upon touring the property, Mel explained, “This is our house.
“It may not have any historical elements or high ceilings.
“The decor might not be to everyone’s taste and there are DIY mistakes that only I know about.
“There are rooms I would like to update but we love living here.”
She concluded, “Our house is a happy house, it makes us smile and that makes it a home.”
On the video tour, she started in the teal living room with patterned wallpaper and a flash of neon light before moving on to the mermaid-themed bathroom and jungle-themed bedroom.
The kitchen is pink and teal, with a pink neon light on the wall, while the couple transformed their son’s room into a rainbow-themed paradise.
In another video, Mel explained, “I love it when my home surprises people!
“We’ve worked really hard to create a space that makes us smile, and it’s great when that smile spreads to you.”
She captioned the clip: “So nice to smash new build stereotypes! @awholenewbuild.”
She also responded to someone who wished her “luck” in selling the property.
“I think as a society we’re totally conditioned to think about keeping our home neutral and ready for the next person,” she said.
“For us we bought this house with the intention of staying here for quite a long time. I don’t see us moving any time soon.
“We’ve been here for seven years, so why wouldn’t I want to decorate my house in a way that makes me happy if I’m the one paying the mortgage?”
