Hi, I’m Jayne, a UK travel and lifestyle blogger and mum of a 3-year-old son.
Our Travel Home is a travel and interiors blog where I share my passion for my two favourite things in the world – travel and home decor.
It’s a brand-new name for a blog I started in January 2010, initially just to share my misadventures around the world with friends and family. I had no idea that not only would I still be blogging 12 years later, but that this site would document my travels to 60+ countries, a move to Australia (and back), a wedding, a baby, a new house and a pandemic!
About Our Travel Home
In a nutshell, this blog is a resource to help you plan stylish holidays & style your dream home.
In terms of our home, like many people around the world, I developed a passion for home décor and interior design during lockdown. But as someone whose first love will always be travel, I’ve tried to find ways to inject that global-influence into our new build in Berkshire.
My travel crew are my Aussie husband, who is the aviation geek/ points hacker of the team, and our son Miles, so named for the 30,000 of them he did in my belly.
Since welcoming our little traveller to the mix, we’ve been favouring slower family travel – we spent 7 weeks in New York and 3 weeks in Australia during our son’s first year – and we’ve tried hard not to compromise on the style of travel we love. (So far, anyway!)
My goal is always to find beautiful places to stay (you know, the kind of accommodation that makes you want to come home and redecorate!) but, of course, there needs to be an element of practicality now we have a young child.
The travel guides you’ll find here are a mix of the street eats, shopping secrets, stylish accommodation and can’t-miss tourist attractions I’ve explored on my trips.
I only write about places I’ve been and seen for myself, and I’ll tell you exactly what I think, usually with a bit of British humour thrown in.
(Like the floating breakfast in Bali that almost ended my marriage :p)
Our Home Style
In 2020 we bought our first house, a fairly standard English new build property, that we’ve been slowly injecting with our personal style.
I’m a huge fan of the modern rustic trend you see in homes designed by Studio McGee and Amber Lewis. (Aka my interior designer idols.)
You can read more about the ways we’ve added character to our new build house so far here.
