There is a new trend in camping called "Glamping".. the idea is that camping can include both luxury items from civilization and a beautiful decor. We have brought both of these factors into play in the make over of our 28 foot Jayco bunkhouse travel trailer. The addition of colour, both vintage and modern accessories, and a few little luxuries.. have taken this basic trailer from boring to beautiful! As the "rooms" are small, I kept the decor to a fresh green and yellow colour sceme. I have listed the sources for many of the items you see. Enjoy the before and after tour....
Definitely started as a
boring, beige and boxy little room..
With one big empty blank wall that we would be staring at each morning when we got up..
Country cottage green linens by JYSK and
fresh accent pillows bring immediate life into this space.
A bit of beachy art for the walls..
A Vintage breakfast tray and a cute wooden box
serve as a vanity table..
And that ugly blank wall...
has been transformed into "A room with a view"
thanks to this fun beach print
I love this kitchen layout
this was the reason we chose this trailer.
And the trailer comes with a three burner stove
Vintage kitchen accessories make this area super sweet ..
We added hanging wine glass racks from Lee Valley Tools.
Wine glasses are from The Bay and the dollar store.
Old copper canisters add charm..
Sunlight soap... vintage dish washing!
We added spice racks from Camping World,
so that we could have our seasonings handy.
and the after...
A rug, a stool, a bulletin board and some coat hooks!
Even your checklist can be glamorous!
THE LIVING ROOM
The before ...
I really though this sofa was very bland,
until I was able to see it as a
blank canvas waiting for colour.
Once again.. fresh colours
and some vintage art work
bring the space to life.
The addition of a storage
ottoman from Target creates a place to
add a tray and serve a meal...
Tea in the afternoon.. how glamorous!
This room definitely has the bunkhouse blahs...
The bolster can be used to divide
the bed when two kids are sharing.
Colourful storage pockets hang at the end
of each bunk, to organize the
ipods, journals and other teen paraphernalia
The pink stuff is winterizing anti-freeze.. not very attractive..
So how does one decorate
a tiny bathroom the size of an airplane restroom?
Light and fresh colours make this tiny space more inviting...
We added a magazine
rack from Camping world.
A towel rack from "Primitive Home Interiors" provides
lots of towel storage and keeps towels in place
while we are moving.
Family photos for inspiration
and a drainable tote to store
shampoo while we are travelling.
THE DINING AREA
A typical camper dinette
with storage above and a place
for a TV..
Candles and "kitchy" accessories...
Storage for DVD's and a TV
Guess which DVD we want to watch first?
And pretty melamine dishes bought
for a bargain at Target and Macy's...
Hope you enjoyed the tour!
