Beckhams plan makeover for British home

London, Oct 14 (IANS) Former soccer player David Beckham and his wife Victoria Beckham have reportedly hired interior designer Kelly Hoppen to give their prospective London mansion an American makeover.

The couple, who together has four children, are hoping to buy a 45 million pounds townhouse after their return to Britain. Hoppen will give it a makeover to help the family adjust to life away from Los Angeles.

"David and Victoria have been extremely conscious of how homesick the kids have been since leaving LA and they've had a hard time settling in to their new school and making friends," quoted a source as saying.

"Brooklyn in particular has found the move difficult. Kelly designed the Beckham's LA houses and decorated each of the boys' rooms according to their own tastes," the source added.

The family, who recently sold their Beckingham Palace property for 12 million pounds, has reportedly given Hoppen unlimited resources to work with.

"Kelly has been given an unlimited budget. They're all hoping that this move will really help give the boys a new start in England and help them to truly feel at home and stop pining for LA," the source said.
