User HARBORLIZARD (a great name by the way) on the now-defunct HGTV Spaces blog was tired of the worn out and bland look of her RV’s interior.
So she set out to change things. Sure, she did the normal stuff like repainting the walls and cabinets and adding new hardware. It’s the personal touches that make the design her own though – like hanging handmade paintings, reupholstering the chairs herself, and adding unique vinyl decals to the walls.
This is how the RV looked before the makeover (pretty typical, right?).
Not much going on in the hallway, still the original wall paper and a single picture to the left.
The bedroom is dominated by light colored cabinets, with little in the way of accents.
Take a look at the finished remodel. With some work, she transformed her RV into a beautiful home.
She re-stained and reupholstered these chairs herself. The green floral pattern matches the walls, while the white background reflects the light, balancing the darker chairs and table.
That’s her handmade painting on the left. Dandelion vinyl stickers line the hallway to the right. You can almost feel the breeze!
Even the entranceway got a makeover.
These tiles look to be made of glass. You can find them at your local big box store like Lowe’s or Home Depot. They’re designed for residential backsplashes, but look great here. I just wonder about the their durability. Could they crack if they’re accidentally kicked?
Yellow and green accent colors brighten up the inside of the trailer.
You might notice the faux wall to the right looks a lot different than in the original design. Most of the other items have straight lines and a geometric feel, making the dark twists stand out.
Entertainment area with more twisted branches in the corner.
The bathroom backsplash looks similar to the entranceway. Her handmade frog painting hangs to the right.
The bedroom has the same color scheme as the rest of the trailer. She re-stained the mirror to a darker color.
The tile backsplash material appears throughout the trailer: in the entranceway, kitchen, and bathroom. Although it looks like she used glass tile, you could also try installing lightweight Smart Tiles. These tiles look similar to glass or stone backsplashes, but weigh much less and are a lot more durable.
I really like her choice of colors too. The darker walls and green accent color balance the stark white cabinets nicely. What do you think of her camper’s makeover?
