Caravan Camper


From top: No Chintz, Snail Trail (2)

Long weekends are the perfect time to escape suburbia in a caravan outfitted with the bare essentials. OK, Betty's camper may not be bare, but who wouldn't enjoy a little peace and quiet in the country in this home away from home? Whether you skip town or stay in, create your own retro paradise inspired by a vintage getaway.

If you're lucky enough to have your own caravan, you can find the perfect fabric to make everything from an awning to cushions at www.nochintz.com. Or check out the beauties for rent at www.snailtrail.co.uk. Otherwise, make your kitchen or den feel like a mid-century trailer with Betty's Etsy picks.
