When people find out we’re remodeling a camper and plan to live in it, generally, we get two schools of response. Response A – people think we’re crazy hippies (they’re not totally wrong). Response 2 – they’re fascinated and ask tons of questions.
One that’s been challenging to answer is what it will look like when we’re done. Its a little tough to just ball all of our wild ideas into a compact little package of aesthetic explanation in one conversation. But I thought it would be fun to talk about it here, while we’re still in the midst of pulling Rosy apart. After all, the designing and decorating is where the real action is at, amiright?!
So here are some high-level representations and annotations of our ideal aesthetic:
*Painted white interior skin and walls. Don’t have a solid visual representation of this, but you get it, right?
*Weathered/barnwood style flooring. The second one here is my favorite! I love the slight warm tones with the burnt grays.
*Counter and table surfaces will either be faux concrete or hardwood (undecided)!
*Pops of sage green, rose, peach and rose gold! Most of the metal in the camper is already rose gold (that was a freebie) and I’ve seen some pretty rad rose gold spray paint on the market.
*Black on white simplistic, linear graphic accents (like the cacti sheets I bought to turn into curtains).
*Plants. All the plants.
We are really going for a light and airy, minimalistic aesthetic, with well thought out storage, and multi-use zones.
We also got a lot of inspiration (and the decision to go with white walls) from following Mavis, Dunes, and Tin Can Homestead on insta.
Hopefully that gives whomever so reads this some sort of mental picture of how we plan on outfitting Rosy. Now if we could just pick a floor plan. I made some templates for us to draw out multiple layouts, which should help us get closer to nailing that down. DIY pun intended.
Happy camping, everyone!

The bed we have raises up and has storage underneath. Utilize that space
Nice! I’ve seen those! We’re actually considering a Murphy Bed over the curbside wheel well, so that we can just fold up when not in use. That way we can still have a convertible in the gaucho space for friends to sleep over! Nothing set in stone yet, though!
