TSB & Dulux 'Amazing Space' Win two thousand pounds to spend on yours!

A couple of weeks ago the team at TSB got in touch to share with me their latest collaboration with Dulux and have commissioned me to mention this exciting new offer with you guys. As part of a current promotion anyone taking out a home improvement loan with TSB will also be able to use the Dulux 'Amazing Spaces' feature (worth £75) to have a one on one consultation about what to do with their space to make it perfect for them.

Don't forget to head to the bottom of this post to find out how to win two thousand pounds to spend in your home! You can also see some more photos of our home transformation over here. 


As many of you know we've been working on our home in bits and pieces since we bought it as a project about six years ago now. At the time we both had hardly any money and so our budget was tight and things took a long time to happen. A lot of the work was big jobs such a building walls or knocking them down and putting in french doors to our garden. Our garden actually has only really come about this year when we were finally able to afford to put fake grass down and tidy it up a bit to make it a manageable space for our family.


All our home improvements feel really personal as they are things we've really put our stamp on and to see our family home grow in this way has been so rewarding. Thats not to say it hasn't actually been pretty frustrating at times too as we waited to save the funds to complete them. Some of the projects were quite big and did need the money behind them before we could really start the work but some of our projects I wish we'd done quicker so we could have enjoyed our space sooner. Our living/dinning room is prime example of that really as adding french doors made such a huge difference that it's one of those things I wish we'd taken out a small home loan for to make use of it sooner and pay it back over that time period instead.

I don't think I've ever shared these pictures on the blog before but this is what our house looked like when we bought it (yikes!).


As you can see the living room was pretty laid out pretty oddly, there were actually two different levels to the rooms and then a small window at the back and a odd sort of arch where they had made them into one big room. We initially re-concreted the floor to make it the same level and then put floor boards down instead of laminate. We also took away the fake fireplaces and re-painted but thats where we ran out of budget. About five years later we did the renovations below which included adding french doors and closing off the rooms with partition doors and adding a stud wall. The french door part cost around two thousand pounds as did the wall and doors between the two. I really wish we'd done the french doors straight away and paid it back over time. This is what it looks like now, I think the doors make such a difference.


As you can see we've really put our own stamp on the space and it really feels like 'us'.


And this is what we've done with the garden space


The garden wall is *almost* finished painting at the top there ha!


A couple of months ago we decided to strip out the carpet I hated on the stairs and hallway and also knock down a inbuilt wardrobe that sat on the top of the landing. By knocking it down it made the space so much lighter and has given us some room to play around with. I wasn't 100% sure what would work best there and what colour schemes we should go for either. We're about to get it plastered and then will play around with paint and colours which is where the Dulux Amazing Spaces service comes in. Funny enough the cost to transform this space will come in just under two thousand pounds which I think it just the sort of budget that you often don't have to hand but is sometimes easier to borrow and pay back over the year.


This is what it currently what it looks like (it's about to be plastered so use your imagination when it comes to the brick wall!).



After I'd sent my pictures to the team at Dulux and told them a little about my space, the colours I like and the example pictures they showed me that I felt drawn to the team there were able to go away and take a look and come up with a plan for me. My consultation took place over video call two days later and I loved the ideas and colour schemes they pulled together for me.


I felt like they'd really understood my personality and had done the research really well to come up with some things I felt were my style but also some things I would never had thought of but immediately loved. Take a look at the plan and products they drew up for me, it's making me so excited to get this space finished!

Here comes the part I've been dying to share with you guys! When I started chatting to the team at TSB & Dulux about this collaboration and they told me I'd be able to host an amazing giveaway with my readers I was so excited. It really is a brilliant prize and one thats extremely easy to enter.

I'd love to make my dining room into an amazing child friendly space it's so boring and more like a junk room!

Faye West said...

I would love to turn our cottage kitchen into a prettier more functional space. It is the first room you walk into and I find it a constant battle to make it look smart, tidy, inspiring and inspiring. I love kitchens to be the heart of a home - especially now that I have a baby boy who I can't wait to cook for!!

Amy Lindsay said...

Would love to win this competition and spend the money on changing my eldest daughters room into a joint room with her little sister! Could do with the inspiration to make it a special space for both of them! Love your work on your house, it's hard being patient and getting it done slowly but is nice to grow with the space! X

Sophia Pearce said...

I would love to won this competition for my 17 year old daughter.Who is about to start her 2nd year of A levels.Her room is very small.And needs more storage and colour. She has worked so hard would be an amazing treat.

Sam Bell said...

My 8 year old's bedroom is very plain as we never got round to personalising it after reconfiguring the layout and having the walls replastered and painted cream. I find it really difficult to imagine designs especially for a girl who is entering the tweenage years, what I would pick is likely to be wrong so the Dulux Amazing Space Service would really help me out of this Mum dilemma.

alex ferguson said...

Moved into our first home and would love to get some furniture so it's more of a home and less like a storage box ��

Sophie Wearing said...

I desperately need their amazing help to blend all the colour clashing items in my 3 year old'son room! We are about to plaster and still haven't decided on colour, thanks to a bright green and yellow rug, and pastel pink tipi. Hell Hellllp!

Katy F said...

Our home is almost done but our living room was a bodge job when we moved in so desperately needs to be done properly to complete our home. x

Jen M said...

A proper small double for the boys bedroom would be great, and some nice storage for them :)

sian said...

WOWZERS! I'd spend the money to make our boys' room fab, at the moment it has strange purple walls and the world's shonkiest built in wardrobe. I'd love the space to be as fun as them with lots of useful storage, fingers crossed!

Claire Tilston said...

I work from home and would love to change my son's old nursery into an inspiring and light workspace. I would change the pale blue with Noah's ark stickers for something more grown up and professional. I would need proper storage and a lovely desk to work at. Maybe some great art and lovely quotes on the wall. Would love this X

Lamb & Bear said...

If I could get them to do every room I would! But I think our dining room/play room/office/storage room (yes we use it for all of those things) is in desperate need for some attention. I'd love plenty of storage for toys etc, plus a lovely office space that makes me sit down and work. At the moment I hate going in that room, it's so cluttered! We only have a 2 up, 2 down house so in desperate need of space and we just don't use that room to its full potential. What an amazing giveaway! Xx

Sarah Mullen said...


Wow... I'd definately spend on updating our living room... getting rid of the clutter and utilising the space

Kate said...

We moved into a Victorian terrace two years ago but the previous owner had removed the lovely bay window and flattened out the brickwork. I would love to reinstate the bay to create more light and space in our living room!

Mia said...

We just put fake grass down in our yard this year too. It's amazing the difference it makes. It's like having another room. It's only a small space but it makes a world of difference - fake grass really lends itself to the little gardens around here, right?! Wish we'd done it years ago!

Lemon said...

Great competition! I would definitely spend it on my boys bedroom. Since moving in over a year ago I haven't had the cash to spend. They have ended up with a room full of a mish mash of furniture and bits from their baby nurseries. They need a fun boys room right for a 4 and 6 year old.

farayaya said...

Our second little girl was born three months ago and it's not long now until she will be old enough to join big sister and share a bedroom with her. I'd love to spend this money making their bedroom as pretty and fun as possible!! Fingers crossed ✌��

Anne HM said...

Your home is beautiful Fritha! Our journey has been similar to yours, doing little bits as we can afford to, to make our own space. I would actually also use the money for my hall and stairs too. We've ripped up the carpet and painted the floor, but unsure about the walls and furniture. We need to store books up there, but don't want something that takes up too much space. I'd also be keen on a bright painted mural that would work against our bright blue front door, so the inside is as cheery as the outside!

Merry Ferry said...

This would be amazing! We moved into our house when I was 8 months pregnant and between buying a house and maternity leave funds are pretty tight to make any changes just now.. plus the baby takes up a huge amount of time! We have a room next to our garage that isn't currently connected to our house. I would live to get stairs down and connect that room up so it can be a nice place for family to stay and a space for my sewing things.

Balanced Beauty Bristol said...

I'd like to get more storage in my house... Hilariously probably the exact opposite of what you've done Fritha - I'd like built in cupboards at the top of my stairs!!!

Kayleigh said...

Id love the money, we have just moved after our old landlord made up move out of our home of 5 years to renovate and bump up the rent by £450. We're now in our new flat and haven't got much furniture and we're getting married in a few weeks so don't have a penny spare

Laura B said...

I would totally spend the money on maki a really sumptuous bedroom. I moved in to my house a year ago and absolutely everything needs redecorating (avocado bathroom suite with fitted shagpile carpet, 80s kitchen etc). We are prioritising the main rooms such as kitchen and bathroom and so won't be able to afford to do anything to our bedroom for years. I'd love a bit of extra money to properly do a room just for us.

Amy Crawley said...

I've loved thinking about my fantasy £2000. We've out a lot of time and thought into making our house work for our children, 3 of them. Somehow in making it a great family space we forgot to make a great adult space for my husband and I. So this is what I would do, create,love and maintain a great rejuvenating space for us to be grown ups and remember the days when it was just Two. To start I'd have a great motivational print like from Antony Burrell

Charlotte Cullinan said...

Oh wow those colours are lovely in the inspiration pic! I'd spend the money on our dining room, as it looks like a toy box exploded in there, (it's the only space we have to store toys), and every item of furniture (and most of the decorations) are second hand and a bit tatty really. It would be AMAZING to make it look pretty!

deb bland said...

I think I'd like to spend the money on our bedroom! I've been trying to de clutter ( my mind and house) . I'm about to start a Midwifery degree and id love a space where I could relax and enjoy after a busy 12 hour shift! The service looks excellent, by the way! X

Sophie Roberts said...

This is absolutely phenominal! Your home looks beautiful by the way, what a lovely transformation you've made :) I'd love to be able to finally create my own personalised private space where I can focus on my work but also somewhere I can relax and unwind. I'd love to create a white and grey theme in my bedroom, with shelving and a desk space, along with wall art full of quotes to motivate me!

hannah lawson said...

Omg I love this post so much- it's got my creative juices flowing all over agin. We've had a long journey in such a short space with this house. my husband inherited after his mum passed away very suddenly, whilst we loved it it hasn't ever felt like ours. So we've taken the plunge to renovate it all- starting by treating the rising damp that's in all of the downstairs- £6000 later a whole new flooring, new walls, ripped of chip paper and plaster the damp is treated but our budget is now gone. We've got as far a white washing the walls, but would love to inject some life,colour and fun items we got from Bali and incorporate some others I've found in the good old charity shops of Bristol. :) here's to wishing - good luck everyone and don't forget that this decorating lark is meant to be fun :) keep smiling and happy Friday!

Francesca McIntosh said...

I would like to turn the empty sad looking reception room into a bright, fun and functional playroom for my two small children.

JodieBR said...

It would be great to sort out our dining room with a proper dining table and decent toy storage! Jodie

Alice Collyer said...

What wonderful changes you have made, already, you really get a sense of your personality and how happy a family home it is ❤
If I were lucky enough to win £2k I would finally get to redo our bathroom. It's a tiny, soulless, outdated room that is the weak link in our home. It would actually change our lives I think, currently the shower is barely capable of doing it's job!
Thank you for the opportunity. A lovely post as ever x

Unknown said...

Your home looks beauiful. I'd love to transform our living room into somewhere cosy and relaxing that's not full of toy clutter!

Holly Neale said...

I would make my living room into a little palace for me and my family! New plush sofas would be lovely :)

Sioned Hill said...

Our kitchen really needs a spruce, it's long, dark and dated. £2000 would enable us to change the work top repaint the cupboards, change the handles, put in new bright light fittings and paint. Our 'heart of the home' looks like it has heart disease 😂. Not great for baking with my five year old.

Your renovations look amazing Fritha! Xxxxxx

sharon wilson said...

At the moment we have a whole staircase 2 flights and my daughters room that needs done. My house has been a huge project and still is. The £2000 would give my daughter a dream princess bedroom that she keeps wishing for.

Jenny Toal said...

I would spend it on bedroom refurbishments desperately needed

Chria newson said...

Love what you've done. Inspiring me to try and finish my project. Need to get those final finishing touches to dress the rooms - that's what I'd spend it on

Louise Crocker said...

I would use the 2k for mine and my children's bedrooms, they both look like storage rooms rather than some where relaxing, calm and restful. Half broken wardrobe doors and wonky draws is a no no and the bare white walls need a splash of life. Oh yes and the flower power carpet could go to.

scarletblue said...

I would spend it redcorating our rooms and hoepfully invest in a new bed for me !

Hayley Moran said...

Wow, £2000 for an amazing space,
I would not spend on Chintz and lace.
For me the space would have to be
a place of comfort and tranquility.
A revamped room,a place to chill,
my "woman cave",that would be brill :-)

Lewis clark said...

After moving into my house 12 months ago and doing things as and when we had spare cash only the kiddies bedrooms are finished. I'd spend it doing a nice living room, curtains, blinds, flooring and getting more light in there. Would be awesome

gaynor banks said...

I'd spend the money on turning box room into a nursery

Kath Webber said...

Oh man, your space looks INCREDIBLE! We have very similar tastes- my home is mostly grey, teal and mustard but after five years living here it's in need of some more 'us'! The kitchen/diner is looking a little bland- it needs a lick of colour and better furniture. Our downstairs space is open plan and the stairwell is really letting us down- I'd definitely get a new carpet, some fabulous bright, graphic wallpaper and paint on the walls and some of our favourite posters. And give the boys' room a new coat of paint and a rug ready for some bunk beds! LOTS to do...

Laura said...

We're currently renovating our home, so I could pick any room but the kitchen (as that's the only one complete) but it would be fantastic to change my dining room from damp and dark to bright and beautiful.

Hannah said...

We just moved into a new home. I would strip away the patterned wallpaper and replaster the walls. I'd also replace the doors with proper wooden doors X your home is gorgeous x

Hungermama said...

We are dying to turn our boring lounge I to a grownups-only cocktail lounge! Brass fixtures, a rolling bar cart, and some mid century modern chairs. We also want to paint the cream walls (blech) a deep, dark blue. Mmmmmm . . .

oliphantum said...

We are in the process of sealing the deal on our (hopefully) forever home at the moment. I would spend the £2,000 on my daughter's bedroom in the new house, to make it the best space it could possibly be and help her to feel settled in our new home. She is feeling quite unsettled by all the change coming up, and an amazing new bedroom would help her feel special again. I can see all sorts of fabulous colours, wonderful hidey holes for her treasures, dressing up corners, a princess canopy for her bed and amazing fabrics to complement the paintwork. Oh yes please, she would love it!

Sarah Lord said...

We're moving to a new house next weekend that's a total blank canvas so this would be amazing! I have lots of ideas but not the budget to match :)

Ellen Keegan said...

I'd definitely use the winning for the kitchen! We'd so love to give it a revamp - it certainly needs it!

Jessica Johnson said...

We've lived here over a year and a half and it still doesn't feel like home so I'd use the money to buy all the things that would make it feel like our own. A sofa, wall art, rugs, lots of toy storage and I'd love to make the kids a little den under the stairs!

Travelling Badgers said...

So it turns out redecorating an entire house when you have a 2yo and a baby isn't quite the picnic we thought it might be. We've ground to a halt and this 2k would really give us the lift we need to give our littlies the home they deserve! A sofa that isn't covered in snot, food and scribbles perhaps. Maybe a carpet that doesn't shed all over the baby whenever she crawls across it. Some storage so we don't constantly feel like we're drowning in toys would be nice. And possibly some lovely paint to really showcase all the beautiful artwork we bought pre-kids - you know, when we actually had some spare cash for that sort of thing! Here's hoping ✨��✨

Gemma Selmes said...

We've lived in our little damp cottage for 12 years this month. Now married and three little children later we finally bit the bullet and essentially took the house apart to banish the damp and make our warm,solid and safe for our family. But with though comes the task.of putting it back together. We've tackled one room but there's still a few to go...the kids keep asking when we are going to make it "good again"
If was to win, which would be something else, I would probably have a bit of a cry, hug a child and squalid a bit before sorting out our lounge by making it "good again"...I would paint that ceiling, decorate the plaster. I may even treat the kids and first some lights and install a radiator and create a room for them to come home from school, kick their shoes off and relax in. Warm and damp free. X

What a great competition! I'm just in the process of putting an offer into my first home and all money will be tied up in scraping together a deposit so £2000 would be great to be able to spend on fun stuff! I've seen an amazing grey corner sofa and I'd furnish it with bright colour pop cushions! I'd also love to find a standout print for the walls! X

Kelly Hirst said...

I would love to turn my girls room into a space they don't mind sharing. There own little bits of personality in two halves without actually splitting the room in half with a wall.

Kelly Ellen Hirst

Stacey Gwynn said...

If I won £2000 for a room, I'd use it on my bedroom. After years of cosleeping, breastfeeding, using it as a dumping ground/washing room, I'd finally create a space for me and my husband to have as an escape from the rest of a rather child orientated home. In fact when the kids are running riot around the house I'd use it as my own private living space when i need some time out. My eldest is 12, youngest is 3 and I think im ready to move on from child friendly bedroom to my own bedroom!

Wendy Heasmer said...

We are doing a whole house renovation so £2000 would be very useful. I think it in particular I would use the £2000 to finish off the spare bedrooms so our families can stay with us.

Jennifer D said...

I would absolutely love to win this competition. I am currently renovating a house for my family and we are in the process of adding a large basement to the property. I have visions of an amazing family space and playroom. I'm so inspired by the Dulux collaboration and seeing what is possible to make an amazing space that can look incredible with bright colours, features and prints but also have practical and functional aspects.

Rachel Isaacs said...

I'd love to finish our dining room we treated our selfs on buying the house getting a wood floor fitted, the fireplace knocked out and re plastered and painting but the furniture is still second hand or from our old flat so would love to get new stuff to be on our one nice room before getting the roof re done and new boiler later in the year. Rachel Isaacs.

Laura said...

I love what you've done with your home Fritha. It always looks so happy and inviting. The garden is looking fab too! We've been doing our house up on a budget and would love to win to help it on it's way! The biggest jobs we still have to face are the kitchen and bathroom but one step at a time.

I would use the money to redecorate our hallway - I'd love to get rid of the old textured wallpaper, add some proper pull out storage beneath the stairs to hide all the coats and shoes, a rug and some beautiful artwork. It would make the home feel so welcoming. I love the colour scheme Dulux chose for your landing, thinking of pinching it for our living room! xx

Jenny Ripatti-Taylor said...

What a great giveaway darling. So much you could do with these winnings. I am trying to convert our loft and design a nice open space for my office and play area for the kids. Love what you have done with your beautiful home and the colors are stunning. You are always so chic and trendy and your style choices are lovely.

Zoe G said...

I would love to spend it on my son's bedroom he has real lack of space, it would be great for help him to study and keep it clutter free

Rebecca England said...

I've an open plan space upstairs which is an office / chilling space. I'd love more built in storage and to create a window seat. Also replace some of the existing furniture. Great blog and comp!

Zoey H said...

I'd love to spend on making our overgrown jungle of a garden a low maintenance garden we can use and enjoy

speakman said...

Our back living room is currently a dining room/play room/sewing space. White walls, no door, lots of plastic storage boxes and and patio doors onto the garden. It needs some character, love and organisation.

Sarah Franklin said...

I would use the money to have our bathroom re done. Since buying our house, the shower has always leaked through the kitchen ceiling lights so we've never been able to use it and have to bath every day.
Fingers crossed. This would save so much time xx

Where to start, would love to do something with our conservatory which is just a random assortment of furniture and toys, bathroom desperately needs an up date and would love a new bedroom, so would use money to make improvements in these areas :-)

Ben 10 said...

Ive had to comment as ben 10 because my little boy has managed to change my google name to Ben 10 lol but my name is MICHELLE MCCALL, ..I would use the money to sort out my kids bedroom. My 6 and 9 year old share a room and are always arguing because they are living on top of one another , so I would love to b be the each their own space in the bedroom so I can stop playing referee twenty times a day :)

I'd absolutely love to do up our bedroom. Aso parents were always last on the list and never seem to actually get around to getting our room sorted! It's currently a delightful mish mash of hand me downs and shabby carpet! Haha. I'd love a vintage shabby chic look!

Anonymous said...

Where to start! My bedroom in desperate need and also the kids play room and our spare room too!

I have just moved into a new home with my boys, so my first priority is to make their room comfortable and fun.

My daughter's bedroom was last decorated in the 70's by my mum. I would love to bring it up to date with a complete makeover.

I would finish my daughters woodland themed bedroom and add a few sensory lights to aid her sleep also making our room a much more family friendly room and make it feel relaxing and cosy

Snafflesmummy said...

I would put it towards our garage to kitchen conversion

Hungry Squirrels said...

I would love to put the money towards converting our garage into a play room - allowing our living room to be freed of the kids toys and the clutter that they bring!

Rachel said...

I'd like to do something, anything (!) about our kitchen.
The bare bones of it are ok I suppose. But it would really benefit from some new flooring, a new counter top and maybe a lick of paint.

Oh also a new sink.

And a new blind.

Maybe some new cupboards. ..
I need a new kitchen don't I.

Sue Stoddart said...

Your house is stunning btw!! If I was lucky enough to win I would decorate my eldest Ruby's bedroom.. and have a cosy reading nook in there! I would love to finish my garden too.. decorating my girls Wendy House.. adding an out door chalkboard and also painting the brick walls! Ohh what a dream this would be lol Good luck all and I can't wait to see who ever wins.. what they do to their home!! x x

I would def spend getting me & my husbands bedroom.we've lived in our house 10 years this year and it's the only room out of the whole house not to get more than 2 licks of paint in all that time. With 2 additions into the family setting up their rooms has been a priority so ours got delayed and forgotten.
The romance and reconnecting needs injecting again into this room and this would be perfect.

Deciding where to start is probably the hardest part but seeing it come together eventually is great. Love what you done with your place. I have 2 girls (aged 10 and 1) and I tend to find myself making sure their little spaces are fun and fit their needs but I haven't really had the time or funds to know where to start on my own bedroom. Its just me in it so I'm not sure why I find it difficult lol. I love my bed that's my newest purchase but my furniture just doesn't match. In fact iv had my bedroom furniture for waaay too long it was actually hand me downs from my mum and dad and if I was to guess how old they are id say older than my oldest daughter. My walls have that god awful bumpy wallpaper painted over with the bog standard magnolia. I also have my grandads cream leather chair in the corner which I wouldn't let my mum get rid of so it now sits in my bedroom. Id love to have a space of my own that I can retreat to that's not covered in toys and odds and ends. Somewhere I can say wow this is mines, relaxing and tasteful aswell as very durable for when my little one is throwing toys etc. I don't own a full length mirror and id love a chic style one for my bedroom. If I'm honest a little insight on where to start and help along the way would be amazing for me. Thank you very much for this chance and I wish everyone the best of luck.

I'd really like to transform our downstairs garage conversion (which is a study with a sofa bed) into a bedroom for my 12 year old son. I'd still like to be able to use it as a study too for him to do his homework and so my husband can occasionally work from home

I would decorate my sons bedroom. He is 1 years old and deserves to have a magical bedroom where he can dream and play and be happy. We just haven't had the funds to decorate since he was born

I'd love to have my 3 kids bedrooms looking lovely. They all have mismatched furniture and fittings but the two older ones are teens so I think it's important now for them to have a tip top space for them and their friends. Love what you have done... you make it look so easy even when it undoubtedly wasn't.

This is amazing!! I would use this to do up my dining room/lounge open plan area, it's so outdated!! 😄

I would love to get a professional in to make the perfect bedroom for my 4 yr old daughter, as me and my partner are expecting our second child. This would be a fantastic suprise for her and of course it would be pink with princesses/fairytales stuff, also with decent storage for toys and books etc. Fingers crossed! :)

I would love the team to work there magic on my sons room. His room is small so space saving is a necessity.

Leeanne Clifford said...

Two things... A dresser for my lounge and a new bed. My bed is so old and I'd love to get a new one that doesn't make my bones creak ha!

It would be used to revamp my special needs teenager room. ATM it's boring and basic and he's not comfortable. He has grown out of his kids bed too. It would be amazing to give him the room he wants but as I'm his carer and have two younger kids at home cash doesn't allow for decorating
GOOD Luck everyone

We still do not have any wardrobe. I would love to have at least one

Hi, I would love to do something bright and bold in the room me and my husband use at night to hide away from the destruction the kids caused during the day. I love the use of colour in your home and I would like to inject some of our personality into this room to make it feel more like us using colour and funky accessories. Fingers crossed!!! Liz
