Renovated vintage camper boasts a sumptuous mix of pastel blues and touches of brass

If you find nothing more satisfying than curling up on the couch watching home renovation shows, then you’ll remember Michael and Carlene Duffy from Australian TV show ‘The Block.’ It turns out that  these two are not only superstars with house renovations, but with caravans as well.

Michael and Carlene have a love affair with camping, with both remembering fun times as children. Their fast-paced life today, however, calls for more practical measures. They swapped their tent for something a bit more convenient.

Now that their family has outgrown them, they have now purchased a larger, 22-foot vintage caravan that has a lot to offer.

They named her Dolly in memory of the Australian teenager, Dolly Everett, who took her life due to cyberbullying. They then painted and decorated the entire caravan in her favorite color – blue. The glorious blue paint job was the most expensive part of the caravan renovation, but it was also one of the best. It enhances the coastal feel of the house on wheels, while paying a tribute to its age.
