Okay, I'm not ready to shell out $15,000 for interior trailer decor as Barclay did, but I'm a savvy shopper. First, of course, I'll need to purchase the Airstream.
Adelante Boutique in Austin has retrofitted their Airstream with a definite Palm Springs vibe. Just call up the shop and ask them for Curb Service.
Adelante will load up this little cutie with the latest fashions, accessories, jewelry or even home furnishings and bring it to your door. Step inside with friends and sip Adelante's signature cocktails while shopping.
Are all Austinites this creative?
If the simplicity of mid-century modern brings on 'road trip fever', then you'll love the work of designer Kristiana Spaulding (below left.)
But, the real thrill lies in Capetown, South Africa, where the Grand Daddy Hotel offers seven vintage Airstream trailers (like the elegantly appointed one below right) on their roof top. Each is decorated with a different theme and available to guests who would like to stay somewhere out of the ordinary with skyline views.
I love, yes LOVE, the Airstream bar below! About a hour south of Toulouse, France, two clever, former circus performers turned their love of caravans into a retro retreat with 12 rental trailers, eached decked out in vintage style. But, it's this fabulous 'Appollo Lounge' that Perry and Coline Balfour have created at the heart of the trailer park that makes me smile with delight. It is a specially built Airstream bar designed by Gerard Cholot in 1989 and used as a mobile coffee bar around Paris before Perry incorporated it into the park. Magnifique!
