Vintage caravan was turned into a gorgeous holiday home

If you’ve seen Michael and Carlene Duffy in action on the TV renovation show ‘The Block,’ then you will know they are no strangers to a challenge. They thrive on turning something average into something extraordinary, and Vonnie the Vintage Van is no exception.

With several years of design and renovation experience, including with their business Cedar + Suede, they were able to draw on their knowledge to create their dream camper. Vonnie would allow the pair and their two children to pack away the tent for good.

In the mix, they managed to incorporate forest shades of green to pay homage to the bush of Australia and the beauty of nature. They then made everything else in the caravan work around those prominent colors.

That wasn’t all this dynamic duo would do either.

Michael and Carlene wanted a van that would take the hassle out of trips away. There will be no more packing up a tent in the rain for this happy family.
