My Favourite Space-Rebecca Senyard from The Plumbette

My Favourite Space-Rebecca Senyard from The Plumbette

Bec is one of the first bloggers who ever reached out to me, she has been my biggest supporter since the beginning. Always ready with some encouraging words of advice, I could not be where I am without her enthusiastic guidance. Plumber, Stylist, Mother to three and Blogger to not one but two blogs, Bec’s life is very busy, but somehow she always makes time to help me out. On The Plumbette, Bec posts useful information such as Does lemon juice get rid of mould? and 8 ways a plumber can be considerate to their client while over on Styled by Bec, Bec teaches us How to dress for a Brisbane Autumn and How do you afford clothes when you’re a stay at home mum? Time for a little look into Bec’s busy life…


Tell us a little about yourself?

I’m a plumber but I’ve currently stopped working so I can be a full time mum to my gorgeous girls Esther 4, Magdalene 2 and Phoebe 10 months. I write a blog The Plumbette where I write about my time as a plumber and life as a mother and anything and everything between those two roles. I am also a stylist and write on my styling blog Styled by Bec. I’ve been married to my husband for 10 years and he is my biggest fan.

Tell us about your favourite space?

My favourite space is anywhere where my family is and we generally relax in the family room. Our house is an open plan design so our kitchen, dining and living are all in the same room. I love that I can be cooking in the kitchen and watching my girls play or watching tv.


What is it about this space that makes it your favourite space?

It’s the place I can sit and relax by watching tv, reading a magazine or my ipad or sitting with my girls. Our family congregate in this space as it’s a common area. It also holds some of my favourite belongings.


What are your favourite items in this space?

I love our occasional chairs from Freedom. We bought them a couple of years ago and had them custom made to match with paintings we bought from Africa over 10 years ago when my husband and I went over to help build an orphanage. The cushions change at any time. I also love the throw that I bought from Adairs when it was recently on sale. We’ve had a lot of our furniture and decor since we got married and we won’t be updating it until our kids are a bit older and can appreciate our living area.



How does this space make you feel?

This space makes me feel warm and loved. I also feel nostalgic as a lot of the pieces have a story attached to their purchase. The space feels welcoming and familiar which I love because a lot of memories have been made in that room. If it’s a mess with toys, books and food – which doesn’t last for long because our dog Bentley is a hoover, the space can make me feel stressed. The instant way to calm me down is seeing a neat living room and cushions on the couch as opposed to on the floor!

I love Bec’s family space, such a warm and inviting room, and those colours are amazing! I can totally relate to the stress an untidy space can make and the calm that comes with order.
