The everyday experiences of a young family taking on full home renovation


Brick Dust Baby is a home renovation and interiors blog written by Jasmin Robertson.

I originally started the blog to document the journey of selling my first flat in Brighton and the purchase and renovation of my first family home for myself, my partner and our now four-year old Molly. It’s a three-bed Victorian terraced house in the Poets Corner area of Hove. We bought the house in December 2014 and moved in in July 2015 while the kitchen extension was still being built and we had no electric!

Totally underestimating the time it would take to bring up a small child, project manage the complete renovation of an entire house and set up and run a new PR consultancy, once work began on the house the blog was put on the back-burner.

During the course of renovating the house, which is still ongoing, I continued documenting progress on Instagram and have built a great network of fellow interiors enthusiasts, bloggers and designers. Travel, Pinterest and Instagram continue to be my main sources of inspiration for my home and the community within the latter has been an invaluable source of motivation, support and encouragement.

My aim now is to fill you in on what I’ve been up to over the past couple of years with many back dated blogs on work undertaken with the added benefit of hindsight!

I hope you enjoy reading x
