Meet Audree. She is the wonderful mother’s day gift I received this year, earning my husband bunches of brownie points!!! She is a rare 1959 Fireball trailer, all original and waiting to be loved. And love her I do!!
This is one of those hole in the head things, that you can justify all day long by telling yourself it will be great for company, those quick trips on the weekends etc, etc. But the fact of the matter is, I really don’t care, I love her!!!
Audree got her name because I envision her as a kind of modern Breakfast at Tiffany’s hip pad, Audrey Hepburn Style, where I can have my friends over and pretend we are cool. My teenage daughter of course thinks I am bonkers, she really doesn’t get it, but then I caught her and her friends hanging out in it this past Friday night, so I guess it’s cooler than she’ll admit!
This is what she looks like now. I have added a few decor items just to spruce her up, whilst I sit inside and contemplate her next move.
Here is a mood board of some pics I have gathered off the internet with the way I want to decorate her. I already bought the pillow and pom poms, and am going to have her seats reupholstered in white tufted vinyl. The color scheme will be a teal/aqua, hot and pale pink, with accents of white and a hint of black. She she will be a cool chick pad, I thought a disco ball might be more apropos this go around versus a chandelier!
I am also thinking I might wallpaper her interior rather than paint over the beige, using the same paper I used in my office makeover.
What do you think?
I would love any decor input you are willing to send me, I am open to ideas. Email photos, or color schemes, ideas you may have, I would love to hear them!! Hopefully I will have some before and afters for you soon…..
