Meet Alice, my lovely little caravan.

This summer I’ll be working at a theatre festival, which means I’ll be living in a caravan for about 3 months. Until 2 years ago I said I’d never even go on holiday where I don’t have my own toilet and shower, but with the prospect of a fun job I’ve caved in and bought a funny little caravan. Now I can’t live in a boring old caravan all summer and I had a couple of weeks off before I started the job, so I’ve done some decorating.

Initially my plan was to paint the whole thing inside out, but that seemed to be a bit too much effort. Instead I put coloured plastic foil on the cupboards, lots of posters on the walls, a pile of cushions on the bed and made fresh curtains.

I used a green, pink and blue colour scheme. Partly as I still had accessorise in those colours lying about, and it looks very cheerful.SONY DSCSONY DSC

Most of the images on the walls and the collage on the wardrobe door are from Flow magazine, one of my favourite Dutch magazines (that now also has an international edition). Of course I also opened my pandora box of postcards to choose some nice ones to hang on the wall.

I’m hoping to get a good and sunny festival season this summer, at least my caravan will bring some sunshine.

Oh and why Alice? Well the caravan is officially called ‘Adria’ so it had to start with an A and I do have a bit of an ‘Alice in wonderland’ feel for the whole thing. Like you’ve gone down a technicolour rabbit hole and landed in a flowerbed.
Ps. A tutorial on making those curtains are up later this week, super easy!

  1. What a brilliant transformation! I love caravans anyway having spent most summers as a child holidaying in one, but they tend to look plastic and drab. The kitchen units and miss-matched brightly coloured prints and fabric bring a fun retro feel to it all, and I feel totally inspired to go caravanning again, but this time pimped out! Love this post!
