Homebase "Make your house your home"

"A terrific new direction for Homebase sees a family redecorating their home using a starting point so many of us have begun with ourselves...It's stylish, smart, and even the low-key music plays its part. As a whole, this ad - and its counterpart for gardens - shows Homebase as effortlessly inspirational and an eminently sensible choice for people who are discerning without having vast quantities of disposable cash. Great stuff." David Reviews
