Mum on a Mission: Bec Judd on Blogging, Babies and Beach Towels.

Wife, mother, blogger, designer – what can’t she do?

By Sophie Catsoulis | 1st December 2016

A modern woman in every way, new mum Rebecca Judd is kicking goals on the career front: introducing RJL X Adairs, Summer ’17.

Lifestyle_RJL-X-Adairs_-RMO_Rebecca-JuddInspired by the design process behind her own home, Bec has dived headfirst into the world of interiors. When asked how homewares measured up to her other passions, she got right to the point.
“It has certainly replaced fashion,” she admits. “All of a sudden I became obsessed with finishes, homewares, furniture –you name it.”

Lifestyle_RJL-X-Adairs_-RMO_Summer-bedroomWhile Bec’s summer collection with Adairs is not her first design venture, it has certainly been the most well-received, her signature style evident in its very stitching. Each piece is a seamless combination of contemporary minimalism and vivid colour, perfect for summer.

When it comes to transforming your home for a new season, Rebecca Judd is an expert. Here are her top three tips for getting your home summer-ready:
1. Add new cushions.
2. Grab a brand-spanking-new quilt cover.
3. Place a new throw perhaps in a different position to what you usually do. “For example,” says Bec, “I pop my knit throw on the couch or an accent chair in the lounge if I feel I need to change the space up. When I get bored of it, I style it on the bed. It’s so versatile!”

“I only ever post products, garments, events and spaces that I personally love. If I don’t love it, it doesn’t make the cut,” she says.
But the blog now takes a backseat to Bec’s growing family, with recent additions (adorable twins) taking centre stage.
“It’s a constant juggle,” Bec says, “but I love it. I’m getting my head around being a mum of four and enjoying my newborns. I’m also busy working on my RJL Winter range for next year. It is going to be LUSH.”

And now that Chris, her AFL-star husband, has hung up his boots, this juggling act may just get that little bit simpler.
Get your hands on the collection in-store and online now!
