Posh Camping

I love Airstreams!  I mean my whole Blog name centers around it!   Maybe it started with the I LOVE LUCY episode I saw as a kid   The Long, Long Trailer!  Although I think they actually had an Argosy not an Airstream.  But the novelty is still there.  During my stint as a personal shopper for Ralph Lauren, he did his first retro interior design of an Airstream. I was hooked.  Of course it's that polish job that makes these babies SHINE!

I admit when my husband and I started dating I was so far from an expert camper.  I could only recall camping a couple of times in my life...unless you count Youth Camp with our church and most real campers discount that immediately!  One time was in a cabin with my family at age 10(disaster that end in a hotel after one night) and the other was tent camping with friends right after high school.(dont ask how that went).  But the above picture is truly what I have in mind when I think about camping in an Airstream.  It's like wearing the coolest Vintage Chanel Suit ever made or one of Jackie O's Oleg Cassini gowns.  Timeless.  Classic.  Never goes out of style.

So long farewell...

Well color me a New Year!  Before my oldest child was born, my husband and I, living in a four bedroom house had two guet rooms.  And yes we did actualy use them!  Mostly after parties....or our friends with kids when they would come thru town.  So when deciding which room to convert to a nursery "My Room" was the one that went by the wayside.  My beautiful white room with the antique wrought iron bed (that is still leaning against the wall in the garage) with the flower ribbon hand painted around the top 1/3 of the walls.  The guest room my husband claimed still stands with the denim duvet, leather cornice board above the windows, his cowboy boots leaning against the wall and his bazillion dollar saddle that CANNOT be stored in the garage with said bed.   The chocolate brown walls and blue ceiling actualy look better than they may sound.  But there comes a time when all things change baby!  So here is my color inspiration...taken from Habitually Chic Color My World Blog that I love to dearly!
