Enter the Kitsch-Stream, a 1950s-themed Airstream guesthouse crafted by Timeless Travel Trailers in Colorado, and it’s like entering a world gone by. This mobile home, styled after mid-20th-century design, radiates charm in every inch. The stunning combination of pastel hues and striking red decor, along with the unique dining booth adorned with number plate tiles and lively 1950s curtains, creates an enchanting atmosphere.
The interior of ’Kitsch-stream’, a 1950s Airstream guesthouse can’t help but make you feel like you’ve traveled back in time to the groovy 1950s. The bold color palette with peacock blue Marmoleum flooring, red and patterned curtains, and a red table are a match made in heaven. Your eyes will also immediately be drawn to the clever number plate-tiled dining booth that is a true nod to the cars of its time.
The living space is undoubtedly the heart of the Airstream, setting the scene for the rest of the guesthouse. Guests and owners can enjoy a blend of comfort and style courtesy of the height-adjustable table in a retro laminate finish, pale blue upholstered seats, and the ever-popular roll backrest and scalloped tuck, reminiscent of their era. The table can also be lowered to form extra sleeping space for guests.
While the travel trailer stays true to the 1950s with kitchen-style designs, red polka dot valances, and tiebacks to complete the look, it’s not without its modern conveniences. A small TV was tastefully installed on the wall facing the seats for user convenience.
The kitchen has everything a guest or owner needs for practical everyday living while retaining its retro charm. This galley-style kitchen has a gorgeous teal and white color scheme with vibrant red knobs, a curved metal-edged counter, and red décor and backsplash tiles to complete the look.
Every tiny detail is thoughtfully designed, including a terrazzo-style countertop in blue and red that harmonizes perfectly with the blue and white cabinetry. Despite its cozy size, this kitchen offers ample space for meal preparation and abundant storage.
Instead of opting for modern faucets and fixtures in this Airstream, a choice was made to prioritize authenticity wherever feasible. An atomic-age Dishmaster faucet completes the look – a rarity in any home or house on wheels today.
The scalloped details on the shelves are a feature in the kitchen. They add charm and quaintness while accentuating the cute accessories above them.
The design didn’t stop at retro-styled cabinetry and meticulous details. It went a step beyond, with the careful selection of 1950s kitchen appliances, whose colors are also in perfect harmony with the paint scheme.
Hallway areas in Airstreams can be pretty drab and boring, but that’s certainly not the case in the Kitsch-Stream. Meandering down the hallway is an educational experience, with old-school travel maps adorning the walls from the bedroom to the kitchen. Their light colors work well with the pastels of the kitchen and vibrant peacock blue flooring.
While small, the main bedroom is a relaxing retreat for guests after a long day exploring the serene island of Washington, where the Airstream is located.
The bedroom has been beautifully tied in with the rest of the Airstream, with the same blue flooring and charming bed skirt and curtains. The queen-sized bed is perfect for couples, with plenty of storage under the bed and in the two teal and red bedside cabinets.
There is plenty of overhead storage in the bedroom, with fresh teal and white cabinets installed over the bed.
The bedside tables feature the same cabinetry colors and terrazzo-style counters as the kitchen, carrying on the striking 1950s theme.
The metal doors adjacent to the kitchen lead you to the shower cabin and toilet, perfectly positioned in the middle of the Airstream.
The bathroom in the camper is certainly not an afterthought. In fact, you’d almost consider it the star of the show. From the bold blue square tiles to the red curtains and terrazzo-style counters, it’s a match made in heaven.
The pale blue tiles work well with the teak duckboard shower floor, making the space appear luxurious while still retaining its retro vibes. Guests can certainly shower in style.
