A designer has shared the incredible renovation she and her husband completed on their 1970s-style property, transforming the house from dated and dreary to a flamboyant and colourful paradise.

Rachel Henderson, 40, West Fife, Scotland, moved into her two-bed detached home with husband Andrew, 34, in February 2020, and was keen to switch out the old-fashioned decor and plain walls for something more bold and quirky.

After months of renovation at a cost of £10,000, the home now features brightly coloured walls, quirky wallpaper and chic upcycled furniture - with each room sporting a different theme.

Rachel, who has racked more than 30,000 Instagram followers sharing her progress online, transformed the dull living room into a bright space with peach walls and brightly coloured decor, while the bedrooms sport a variety of bold wallpapers and colourful cushions.

Rachel, who works as an interior designer and stylist helping others transform their homes, has dubbed the colourful home the Rainbow House and says that while they splashed out having their house painted on the outside, the majority of the work was done themselves.

'When we first moved in, it was a typical 70s house with a swirly patterned carpet, beige, plain walls and every room needed a big makeover.

'The two previous properties we lived in were also really colourful and quirky - I always want to inject lots of personality into my home and just go for it.
