Samantha has been busy when it comes to decorating their home, sharing snaps of their kitchen makeover.
She took to Instagram to reveal how she had painted over her wooden cabinets with cream on the top and royal blue on the bottom.
The interiors fan also added patterned tile stickers in between, writing in the captions of the results: "I spose I better get used to having some blue on my feed. I have finished! And I’m also exhausted. I can’t even go for a wee on my own so I don’t know why I thought I could decorate a kitchen with a 2 year old me and @rickychamp2 have been in here every night for a week."
She added: "I’m so pleased with how it’s turned out (swipe for the before photo!) it’s amazing what 2 tins of paint, some new handles and some tile stickers can do! It’s gone from being a room I hated being in to one I love!"
Over in their bathroom the couple's space looks right out of the page of a interiors magazine or even a hotel.
They've opted for a white subway tile design with black grouting along the bottom half of the wall, as well as patterned floor tiles.
