'I revamped my rental on a modest budget'


Posted 28th Apr 2017

Harley Raynor added bags of personality to her home in just a few months using inspiration she gleamed from Pinterest and Instagram.

A bit about me

I’m Harley Raynor and I live with my fiancé Charlie, and our daughter Lola, who’s two.

Where I live

My home is a rented two bedroom semi-detached Victorian house in Southampton, Hampshire.

What I wanted to change

I desperately wanted to lose all of the beige and create somewhere that felt cosy, welcoming and homely for our little family.

How I made it my own

We repainted nearly all of the rooms as soon as we moved in and filled the house with an eclectic mix of new and secondhand art, furniture and colourful accessories.

My favourite part

My absolute favourite has to be the dining room. It’s such a lovely and airy space – it’s perfect for entertaining.
