Hello! Welcome to The Listed Home.
I’m Caro — designer, maker (you can find my shop here), mum to twins — and this is my diary.
A little space for me to record my thoughts but, most of all, a virtual memory box for my beautiful boys.
I live in a wonky cottage, in Middle England, with my little family.

He is one clever cookie. An encyclopaedic brain when it comes to trivia; he can build things, make things and he’s fanatical about rugby and cricket.
Long suffering with my crazy ideas, he’s helped me upcycle a caravan and is wholly responsible for building my long awaited garden office too.
He’s the love of my life — unquestionably — and the most amazing daddy to our twin sons (my little man-cubs) who were born in the spring of 2013.
The organiser. This boy likes order; lines of cars, books in bags plus he’s a whizz at building things too. He loves sport and can run faster than the wind. He loves his bunny (Bee-Ya) more than life itself.
He’s 30 seconds older than his twin and a little taller too.
Some would also say cheekier ;)
My little bookworm. This guy loves words and has been reading proper books almost since he started school.
A sensitive soul who likes to talk — unless the TV is on and then you won’t get any eye contact from him until it’s finished. Like his twin, he loves sport and this little dude has a killer bowling action (future cricket star perhaps?).
So that’s us!
I began The Listed Home when I was 17 weeks pregnant and never anticipated that I’d still be writing after 8 years.
A Potted History of The Listed Home
I work really, really hard to create every single post or film and — as a result — our family has been fortunate enough to work with some amazing brands.
And we’ve had some fantastic experiences.
Over the years we’ve been on the coveted testing team for Great Little Trading Company. And I also have an ongoing and lovely relationship with Mark Warner, Camp Bestival and OLPRO.
This little space on the internet is more than a blog.
It’s my creative outlet, a memory box for my boys and a diary, charting family milestones.
This is our story.
