They have a blue house with a blue window...

And a blue car, blue hair and blue walls.

Blue is certainly the colour of all the Charlesworths' wear - but unlike the characters in the iconic Eiffel 65 song Blue, these guys are real!

The Eschol Park family - mum Emma, dad Daniel and children Jasmine, Fynn, Sonita, Isla, Darcia and Sabian - loved their blue house, but there was one problem.

The bathroom, one of the busiest rooms in the house, was not only in disrepair, but also coloured pink.

That's why the family applied for a home renovation on popular Ten lifestyle program The Living Room.

Mrs Charlesworth couldn't believe it when their application was successful and soon hosts Barry Du Bois and Miguel Maestre were coming to visit.

"I've been watching the show for as long as I've been a home owner," she said.

"Working with Barry and Miguel was a once-in-a-lifetime thing. They are such great people.

"Barry can tell you stories for days and Miguel is so loving and energetic.

"They were so great with the kids, who wanted to show them videos and made them cards.

"It was such an honour to hang out with them and have them give us this gift."

The Charlesworths' bathroom renovation will be revealed on The Living Room's next episode, on Friday, April 16.

Mrs Charlesworth said the kids couldn't wait to see how their story looked on screen. They are planning a watch party with their extended family.

She said to say their old bathroom needed a renovation was an understatement.

"There are no words to describe how disgusting it was," she said.

"It was absolutely abysmal. It kind of distracted from the pride and joy we had as home owners.

"We were at a loss with how to fix it, in both the practical and financial sense. It was beyond our abilities.

"We're pretty handy at DIY, and have done a lot of work on the house, but we hit a wall when it came to the bathroom."

Mrs Charleston said the finished product had blown the family away.

"It is unbelievable," she said.

"It's like a resort in our home - we go in there and feel like we're on holiday.

"It's an oasis in our house and everyone wants to hang out in there. It's so heavenly."

Mrs Charlestone said the family was "so grateful" to The Living Room crew for completing their blue home.

"It's amazing to see how much goes on behind the scenes, with builders and painters, electricians and the whole production team," she said.

"They are so wonderful. From start to finish, they couldn't have been any nicer. They really went above and beyond for our family and we really appreciate it.

"We're never, ever going to move now. If we do, we're taking the bathroom with us."

Catch the Charlesworths on The Living Room on Friday, April 16 from 7.30pm.
