This renovated Airstream trailer is all floral and boho-chic charm

When fabric designer Bonnie and David Christine got married, they dreamed of owning an Airstream. For a decade, they browsed the internet looking for the perfect Airstream at the perfect time.

Finally, they decided that now was the right time since they wanted to travel during spring. All they had to do was find that perfect Airstream. According to Bonnie, they weren’t quite ready to undertake a complete renovation. Their goal was to find an Airstream that had been updated already so that they could add their personal touch.

It had already received a complete renovation with new axles, new cabinetry, and several improvements like updated electrical and plumbing. It was a match made in heaven, and the deal was done.

While looking through the original paperwork, they discovered that the original owner was a woman named Miss Marjorie. As a nod towards the Airstream’s beginnings, they called her Marjorie. Bonnie and David completed their renovations and set off on a month-long road trip through Wyoming, Yellowstone, Oregon, California, and Arizona before returning to North Carolina.

Even though much of the hard stuff had been done, like plumbing and electrical, its décor needed some updating. Fortunately, Bonnie’s job as a fabric designer came in handy for this task.

The table folds down to form a bed, and it’s also where they eat, work, play, and draw.

It has a water connection, a Dometic range oven, and a beautiful big sink. The walnut countertops are made locally by Adam Garret Designs, and the beautiful cabinetry coloring is Light Blue by Farrow and Ball.

One is where the table is, and the other is where the two gorgeous green sofas are positioned. They install a ledge beside the cushion and cut a piece of wood to match the size. It then slides out at night to form a bed, with the back cushions used to create a king-size bed.

The cushions were recovered in a green velvet-like fabric called Gentle Dream Cargo by Robert Allen. The rose pillow is vintage, and the leather wall pouches also present are handmade.

She also likes how it’s positioned at the rear, rather than the middle like many campers you see today. The curved roof also adds some aesthetic appeal to the space.

She then paired her preferred choice with dark grout.
