REBECCA & ROBERT’S HOME
Who lives here?
Rebecca (pictured), a pharmacist and owner of stores; her husband, Robert, a consultant to retail pharmacies; and daughters Alex, two, and Evie, one (pictured). What element of the renovation was most hotly debated?
Rebecca: “We argued for ages about the swimming pool! I really wanted a beautiful lush garden. I’m a terrible gardener but a garden lover. It was having kids that changed my mind, and I haven’t looked back.”
What’s your biggest pipe dream for the home? “I’m obsessed with wisteria. I can’t wait until the wisteria grows all over the pergola. This was a vision I had right from the beginning when we bought the home. I want to be able to stand anywhere in our home and just see this mass of purple.”
