Our Top Ten Blog Posts of 2018

Author: Lisa Soeno

My favourite thing about Rock My Style, hands down, is the interiors-y stuff. I love spotting furniture and accessories that would be ideal for a splurge/steal kinda post, I love chatting about plans for my home and putting together inspiration posts, but most of all I love a home tour.

Don’t get me wrong. I devour the fashion and beauty and family features too. But it seems I’m in good company and that you guys are possibly as interiors-obsessed as I am, as interiors posts and home tours made up seven out of the ten top blog posts of 2018.

Number 10: A Clean House

Top Ten Blog Posts of 2018

My house still isn’t back to normal after the chaos of Christmas (why is it that my hoover and tumble dryer always choose to break during the school holidays?), so I am ALL OVER Becky’s post and pin about the quest to have a clean house.

Number 9: Charlotte’s Summer Uniform

Our Top Ten Blog Posts of 2018

When Charlotte writes a fashion feature my bank card usually takes a hit. It definitely did after this post – and I ended up wearing my Office holiday wedge espadrilles to death throughout the remainder of 2018.

Number 8: Charlotte’s {Comfortable} Capsule Maternity Wardrobe

Our Top Ten Blog Posts of 2018

In this post, Charlotte talked about the investment pieces she treated herself to whilst pregnant with little Iris, plus some H&M bargains. If you’re pregnant (congratulations!) and are wondering what on earth to wear then you probably need to read it.

Number 7: Jade’s Bespoke Kitchen Units on a Budget

Our Top Ten Blog Posts of 2018

Jade’s kitchen is total #kitchengoals and I’ve been an avid instafollower ever since I laid eyes on this room tour. Timeless shaker units in a gorgeous creamy grey hue, sleek worktops, and bursts of colour incorporated through the accessories and appliances.

Number 6: How £25k Transformed a House Into a Home

Our Top Ten Blog Posts of 2018

Another light, cheery and bright home tour for you, and another budget one at that. The story of how owners Sarah-Jane and Matt managed to completely renovate a 1940s property (new roof, new electrics, new plaster…the whole shebang) for £25k (YES £25K) is such an impressive one.

Number 5: Theresa’s Global Inspired Home Tour {Upstairs}

Our Top Ten Blog Posts of 2018

The downstairs of Theresa Gromski’s global-inspired home was a popular post with you guys, but nothing compared to the upstairs, which Pinterest went crazy for. And in particular the above bathroom with its Moroccan-style floor tiles, vintage wooden pieces and ALL THE PLANTS.

Number 4: On the Fence

Our Top Ten Blog Posts of 2018

Editor Lauren is the resident paint guru here at Rock My Style: her posts about choosing the right shades of white or grey paint are consistently top of our most-viewed blog posts (they haven’t been included in this round-up as they’re pre-2018). In this post Lauren deliberated over fence paint colours and included a heap of inspiration pictures and tips for smartening up your fences. Definitely one to bookmark for spring.

Number 3: Don’t Judge a Book By Its Cover

Our Top Ten Blog Posts of 2018

Another of Lauren’s posts, but this time a much more serious one. In January 2018 her home was featured in Ideal Home, and a nasty tweet by a comedian about the ‘backward books’ in her lounge went viral. I don’t know if the comedian read Lauren’s dignified response, but thousands of people did, and hundreds left comments of support.

Number 2: Five Tips if You’re Considering Hacking the Ikea Play Kitchen

Ikea Play Kitchen Hack by Happy Grey Lucky

I enjoyed compiling this post about RMS Ikea hacks so much that I decided to follow it up with one all about how to hack the Ikea play kitchen. I ended up green with envy at all the beautiful ‘hacked’ toy kitchens (including the gorgeous one above by Happy Grey Lucky) which quite frankly are a hundred times nicer than my real life kitchen.

Number 1: Leoma’s Awe Inspiring Villa {Downstairs}

Top Ten Blog Posts of 2018

Drumroll please. In at number one of the top ten blog posts of 2018 is … yep you guessed it … a home tour. This time in the shape of Leoma’s utterly breathtaking Victorian villa. Leoma has an incredible eye for furniture, colour and detail (those chandeliers! That gallery wall!) and if you missed it the first time round then you’re in for a treat.

Which bits of the blog do you like best? Anything you’d like to see more of in 2019?

As always, if you’d like to be a guest contributor please head to our submissions page or drop me an email (lisa@rockmystyle.co.uk). And if it’s a beautiful home that you’d like us to feature in a home tour then I will love you for ever.

  1. Ooh what a lovely read over breakfast, can’t wait to catch up on each of these blogs – I never miss one but will be nice to re-visit. You have so many good blogs on the archive, would to be possible to post links back to related blogs or what was published on this day in previous years?

  2. I think Leoma’s house had to be one of the best home tours ever! We’re currently re-doing our utility using hers for inspiration. I agree with the list, reading a cheeky Charlotte post (esp her on make or skin care) usually ends up in a purchase ☺️ but I always hope for a room tour when I click onto RMS, they are my absolute favourite!

  3. I love Rock my Style but am also really missing Rock my Family and the online community of supportive parents which I just haven’t found anywhere else. Any plans to starting writing for RMF again?! 🙂

    1. Sorry Sarah S but there aren’t any plans to start up RMF again 🙁 I miss it – and the lovely supportive community – too x
