2012 27' International Signature Airstream Travel Trailer
This is the inside of our Airstream with the dinette down creating a lounge.  The dinette is right under Oliver who is snoozing away ♥

I installed a magnetic strip above the stove to hold my knives.  Found it at Ikea and man, that thing is seriously strong — it holds my knives in place even with their plastic blade covers on.

Nestled dishes. Goodwill is a fun great place to find treasures for your trailer. I found those silver bowls there!

Okay, these lights are wonderful! Without them this deep cabinet is rather dark at night and it’s difficult to see what you have put in there. I suggest you run to your local Costco and pick up a pack. They retail for $28 and you get 6 of them. Here is a link to them on my Facebook Page

Update: Ahh this cabinet. Do you see how everything is neatly stacked and organized? Can you see the items waaaaay in the back? If I needed to access any of the items back there — everything in the front had to come out. Drove. Me. Nuts. This was something I discovered after a few road trips and I knew there just had to be a better way.

FINALLY a solution!!

Enter sliding plastic bins. From the Container Store, the system is by “Like-it” and they are called “Short Wide Bin” the LED lights are still working wonderfully too.

Two shelves fit inside perfectly and the top shelf slides right out allowing me to easily access the typical pantry staples. This is So. Much. Better.

How my lower drawer is organized

I found these stainless steel martini-margarita-wine-tumblers on amazon.com

Update: 1/20/13: A collapsible salad spinner – who knew? Another reason I shopping at Ross.

Update: Speaking of shopping at Ross – I found these colorful Laguiole steak knives there for only $15.99. I’m still scratching my head on why they are so inexpensive there and so expensive elsewhere.

I heart this bathroom. There are two white walls and a white door which continue to add to the retro/modern feel of the entire trailer.

I couldn’t stand the doors on the upper cabinet. They were driving me insane. They were impossible to open thanks to a special (stopper) so that while under tow, the drawers would stay shut so I just removed them.

Update: Added a round mirror I found at Target in the bathroom so B can see himself when brushing his hair and teeth. Attached it via sticky velcro strips so it can be easily removed if I need to have a handheld mirror.

Update: 1/20/13: Where we keep our ski boots after a day of skiing (there is a furnace under the dinette/sofa that blows some serious warm heat so the boots dry off and the bonus is that we get to put on warm boots the following morning :) I should caution keeping anything too close to the furnace vent as the ski goggle holder on my helmet MELTED off from the extreme heat. Yikes.

  1. Where did you get the lil square olive oil/vinegar jars and the wood box you have next to your stove. Ive been looking for this time for sometime for my 25ft CCD.
    Thanks
    LilNomad

  2. So many neat ideas for the Airstream space. Thanks for the tip on those little cushy ride felt circles for the plates, too!

  3. Absolutely love your Airstream decor!! So cute and modern!

    Patty

  4. I’m so glad I found your blog! Love Love Love this interior and it will be an inspiration for me as we fix up our 2002 22ft CCD. I wll have lots of questions I am sure. It wil take me a long time to go through your archives!

  5. Cool! Love the colors . Not too much, just enough. Where did you get the utensils? Barb

    • Thank you Barbara — The knives are from Kuhn Rikon, the forks, spoons and knives are really from a pish-posh of places ranging from Target to Pottery Barn to Goodwill. I love to use color so I am always keeping my eyes peeled when I am out and about :)

  6. Hi,

    Love your Airstream and what you’ve done to it. You decorated it with such colorful lovely shapes and designs. You are so lucky to have this.
    I am in Oregon and some day will be able to travel. Miss the days when I would meet my parent with fifth wheel. It was so much fun, really miss it.

    I love the Northwest and what a beautiful country to see. Keep on enjoying your travels.
    Regards,
    geri

    • Thank you Geri. How fortunate you are to live in Oregon — we absolutely love it there with all of the beautiful parks and the coast. I am happy to hear you have such wonderful memories of meeting your parents and camping — hopefully soon you will be able to travel again and until then I am sending you happy future travel wishes…♥

  7. Love your space Monica! We have the same unit and so love what you have done. Can you provide a source for your magnetic wall/spice holder next to stove? I can’t find one anywhere. If you pass through Florida, will you do my house?? ; ) Thanks for posting!

    • Becky, thank you! So that magnetic spice holder — ahhh — that was a dilemma because I so wanted a white one (to match the overhead cabinets) but could not find one anywhere. So I went the DIY route and purchased a magnetic board from the Container Store and covered it with white contact paper. I managed to apply the contact paper virtually bubble free by spraying the surface of the board with a 1 to 5 ratio of soap to water. The allowed the contact paper to “slip” around and allow me to squeeze out any bubbles that were trapped underneath. Then I allowed it to dry overnight and voila — white magnetic spice holder :) Hope that helps! ♥♥

      • Ah! I am missing the DIY gene. I just may have to admire yours from afar. I too prefer the white. I actually found a link for a white one for $85 and can’t find the site now. Me, contact paper, cutting…I see a hot mess on the wall, haha. Great end results. Love the whole look of your AS. Thanks for the reply. Becky~

        • I searched online forever trying to find one with no success — if you happen to find that website you are referring to, I would LOVE to know! xoxo

      • I was going to ask the same question on the magnetic board. I am SO inspired, will buy the magnetic spice boxes as well. Despite my Nelson Ball Clock, my AS needs some pizazz!
        Second question: When taking Airstream skiing, any freezing issues? I had some early October water hose freezing, next time will buy hose heater. I find that AS did well as far as holding tanks – nothing froze, but only into the upper 20’s.
        What temps have you tolerated and any tips for cold weather (freezing) outings?

  8. Beautiful! I noticed you don’t have your dinette set up, do you just keep it down as a sleeping area? What pillow are you using over the table itself to keep the couch level? Love the blankets over the couches too, where did you find them? We have a 2012 25′ International Signature and I’d like to borrow some of your ideas ;)

    • Thank you Renee! Congratulations on your 25′ International — the 25′ is a great size!!

      I am flattered you want to borrow some of my decorating ideas :) We do like to keep our dinette set down. The cushions from the seats of the dinette and the back cushion of the sofa (that runs along the two view windows) serve as the “top” cushion for our dinette. I hope that made sense! They fit together like a puzzle of sorts and it works out well. If you would like to email me I can send you a picture of how the cushions fit together without the sheepskin rugs on top.

      The blankets are actually sheepskin rugs that I found at Costo. They do bring them out every year so I would keep your eyes peeled.

      I love Costco for finding things for the Airstream as well as the Container Store, Target, Ikea and especially Ross for kitchen essentials.

      Keep me posted on how your decorating goes and happy travels! ♥♥

      • Thanks so much for the info! A quick question, what made you decide to go with the 27′ FB rather than the 28′? We are planning on sizing up in the next few years (our 3 kids are small now but I already know I want more space!) and are trying to decide between the two. Just curious on what your thoughts are.

        • I wasn’t crazy about the 28′ because it had the separate dining booth and the TV was right behind it on the wall — so if someone was sitting in the booth their head would be blocking the TV for someone who was sitting on the sofa who wanted to watch it. Goodness! Did that make sense? lol !!

      • Hi Monica!

        I know this is a older post but would you mind sending me the photo as well? I have played with the cushions and can’t seem to find the winning combo! I prefer the dinette in a cozy set up as well. I have just purchased the 25 Intl (twin set-up) and can’t wait to get out there! Your photos are so inspiring and the decor and recipes are an additional inspiration and confirmation that Living Riveted is living happy. : ) One of my new favorite sayings: Less house, more home!

        Please keep the posts and pictures coming and thank you for all that you do!

        TQ

        • Hi TQ !! Please forgive me for my late response — I will most definitely send you the photo, I just need to retake it because I can’t seem to find it. Hopefully I will be able to do this for you very soon, the cushions are kind of a puzzle situation but I think I found the right combo. Congrats on your silver girl — twin beds are so awesome. They give you SO much more room back there. I will be in touch xx

    • I also love the idea of leaving the dining table down. Would you please email a picture without the sheepskin? I’m having trouble arranging the cushions! Where did you find the cute tri-corner table? Finally do you find the sheepskin too warm in the summer?

      Thanks for all the great inspiration!

  9. Love it! I’ve got to know where you got those awesome dishes!!! Those plates and bowls are the cutest things! Love the decor of the trailer, too!

  10. We have a 27 foot airstream . I have been looking for a way to use as much space as possible without having clutter and you have done this. Where did you get the white board by the burners ? How is it attached to the wall? Where did you purchase all the containers on the whiteboard? Barbara. Jean

    • Hi Barbara — so the white board is actually a silver magnetic board I bought from the Container Store. I covered it with white contact paper. The white containers I also purchased from the Container Store in their home office department. They are actually white magnetic pencil holders and a note pad holder. The white spice holders are also from (surprise) the Container Store :)

      I hope that helped you xoxo

  11. Hi Monica. Fabulous photos and great tips. I saw your comments about your bathroom locker. Ever notice how nobody ever wants to talk about their bathroom? Lol. I’m glad you did because I’ve been looking for solutions for that upper locker. The door with the massive mirror. What a pain. It’s going to be totally in the way when I install nice towel hardware. I would love to see some more pics of your latest modifications to the space. I am thinking of installing the plexi sliders and backlighting. Any feedback would be welcomed. Thanks :)

    • Hi Anna-Marie :) I really think your idea of installing the plexi sliders would be a major step above the huge, heavy, massive mirror. Sure the mirror is great, but you could always hang a mirror on the wall (opposite wall from where the towels would go). Plus I think it would look very chic with the sliders and lights inside….

      For me, my bathroom cabinet is the junk drawer of my Airstream. I can’t stand it. I have tried so many things to try and keep things in their place in there with hardly any luck. Currently I have two wire baskets that fit in there and I keep all my tall bottles (shampoo, hairspray, etc) inside them. It seems to help keep those items in place while we are under two, but I still wish I could figure out a better solution. I was even thinking to install a shelf with a lip to hold smaller items higher up, inside.

      If I ever come up with something I’ll make sure to post pictures and I’ll keep an eye out on Platinum Airship to see what you come up with.

      Good luck!!

  12. Hi Monica,

    Nice job with the setup of the Airstream. I have a quick question for you. I really like the placemats you have pictured here. Do you remember where you got them?

    Thanks a bunch,

    -J

  13. Hi Monica,

    I think your Airstream looks amazing! That is totally my taste, I was looking at a used and a new Airstream this weekend and can’t wait to have my own. After seeing what you did to your trailer it makes me able to imagine how awesome they can be with a little decorating skill. I also love that white magnetic board you made as I see others have commented on, but I am really interested in those adorable purple lights on the floor, and the white lights in the bathroom. Would you mind sharing where you purchased them and how to install them? Thanks so much, Moira

    P.S. I will be following your blog for more great ideas…thanks …you sure do have impeccable taste!

    • Hi Moira !! First of all, I am so flattered by your sweet, kind words — thank you !! The lights that I have under the dinette that run along the bottom of sofa/gaucho I purchased at Costco. They are LED lights and I found them in the section where the faucets and household hardware items are found. What I really like about them is that they are adhesive and come with a remote control to pick ANY color you would like! B loves the green color since that’s his favorite color and I love the purple. Blue is really awesome too and white is very glamorous, I think. I hope you can find them — if not, I was just at Ikea and they have them there as well but without the remote. The fairy lights in the bathroom I bought at my local craft store (Michaels) in the wedding/floral section. They are battery operated and one strand fits perfectly under the upper cabinet. You can put them on a timer or just turn them on whenever you want. They look so pretty at night. Please keep me posted on what Airstream you decide upon. I think this initial stage of deciding is the most exciting time ever !! Good luck and big {{{hugs}}} ♥

  14. Hi Monica, Thanks so much and Happy New Year! Best, Moira

  15. Thank you Jess !! Believe it or not (and I should totally do a post on this) but my little fridge can hold SO much food. I’m always so amazed. Just when I think I over packed the fridge, there is still room left. I also keep some canned goods (tuna, beans, etc.) in the upper cabinet above the kitchen and then in the main cabinet next to the stove (the really deep cabinet) I keep our cereal, bread, chips, etc. I used to have a shelf in there that slid out but I took it out – not because I didn’t like it — but because I get bored and I’m always moving stuff around lol.

  16. Love your space and recipes! We made the short ribs and home and they were yummy!
    I couldn’t tell from your pics where you keep your pots and pans.
    Happy New Year! Lisa

    • So happy you made the short ribs !! They are really the best :) I keep my pressure cooker under the gaucho/sofa since it’s kind of on the big side. Then I keep my cast iron skillets (10″ skillet, 5″ skillet and griddle) nestled together on the bottom of the oven. My two other sauce pans I keep under the sink along with my mixing bowls. I should really take a picture of that for you! ♥

  17. Just love all the stuff you have put together in your A/S. Do tell, how you keep the sherling on the sofa….I have a terrible time keeping ours in place. As soon as we move around the A/S it starts sliding off….do you have a secret?

    • Thank you Betty ! Ours slides around as well and drives me batty. I did put some silicone dots which help a little but not much. Lately I’ve been thinking about attaching a strap of some sort to the backside and running it under the cushion and attaching it to the other side of the sheepskin. I’m going to definitely try this before our next big trip next month and will post pictures.

  18. I love what you did with your trailer! How did you get the doors above your bed to turn greenish yellow? Is there film on it or did you put in different colored light bulbs? Also, is there lighting underneath the couch in the kitchen?
    beautiful job!
    Sincerely,
    Janet

    • Thanks Jan !! So the yellow/green tint in the overhead cabinets comes from our pillows (that we sleep on at night) — they have yellow pillowcases on them. If I put orange pillowcases on them, the entire look would turn to orange. Funny isn’t it? I love it! Then at night I swap them out for the decorative pillows on our bed. There is lighting under the couch in the kitchen but it’s recessed so it’s hard to see. Hope that helped you xoxo

  19. As a new owner of an Eddie Bauer 2014 airstream i am beyond excited at the nesting process. Thanks for your ideas! Especially about storage. :)

  20. Love your blog!! And it is so nice to see the inside ideas for storage of your Airstream. I too am in the nesting stage of my 30’…. love the space, but moved up from a 19′ and I still travel like I have a 19’……with almost all empty cupboards. So it is nice to get some ideas as to spreading out some of my ‘glamping’ items. I would love to know what you used to attach your iPad to the wall in your kitchen. Thanks for all the great ideas and the fantastic blog. Keep up the good work!

    • Hi Tracy, thanks so much for your sweet words! Wow — you went from a 19 to 30? You must be in spaciousness heaven ;) The 30 are so nice I have to say !! For my iPad — there is a great product out there called Wall-e where you attach a special case to your iPad and then attach a mount to the wall. Here is the link: http://www.studioproper.com.au/products/ipad-3rd-4th-gen-pro-bumper/ I love the look of it — very clean but I was kind of lazy and just used industrial strength self adhesive velcro circles that I purchased at my local craft store. Works really well too (and cheaper). Hope that helps and safe travels !! xoxo

  21. Hi Monica,
    I was wondering Monica about the winter airstreaming you do. I don’t have a trailer yet, but have been looking at them this last year. When I mentioned to the salesman that I wanted to use it in the winter, he wasn’t very enthusiastic about doing this.
    What do you do to prepare for winter travel with your Airstream? Do you have an extra heater, generator, a particular vehicle type that works best?
    I have looked through your fantastic blogs on your cool winter trips (I am originally from Canada but live in Colorado now) and I love winter, so I think winter airstreaming would be great!
    Is there a blog you have written about this in, and I just missed it? Or could you share what you do?
    Thanks
    Love your blog – really beautiful photos. Are you a professional photographer?
    Blessings,
    Janet

    • Hi Jan — thanks so much for reaching out! We love Airstreaming in our trailer in winter, that’s for sure. You’ve inspired me to finally put up a post covering exactly how we do this. I get so many emails about this that I just need to do it already, lol.

      I’m going to work on it tonight for you and hopefully get the post up this evening!

      HUGS to you xoxo

      Thank you for the sweet words about my photography :) Means so much xoxo I do freelance photography on my trips, so yes, I guess I am a professional :)

  22. Hi Monica!

    I have been following you for around a year now. We traded a 30′ motor home for a 25′ airstream that looks very similar to yours. You have been a wonderful inspiration on how to outfit the new digs. Love, love, love all your pics and the places you go! I send these to my hubby as hints ;) I am amazed at how much you have in the airstream. Does everything travel ok? I am struggling finding places to put everything in the kitchen (the 25 pantry is not very useful). In tow, things get tossed all over the place like a popcorn. I do pack things tightly with cushions wraps etc. Any hints?

    Thanks!
    Lisa

    • Hi Lisa — I am so sorry for the delay in getting back to you!! I totally understand the frustration with things getting tossed around while under tow. Over the last couple of years Airstreaming I have a learned a few things. For example, in any given cupboard, if you have space in between your items those things will most likely fall over while under tow. Non-slip shelf liner is a must and I am sure you already know that. What I have been doing lately is placing kitchen towels in the areas in the cupboards to fill those “spaces” in between items so everything stays close together. I know your pull out pantry very well as I had the same in our first Airstream (2006 25′ Safari). If things are falling over in there I would roll up a kitchen towel and put it in those shelves too. I also use my sink to store things while under tow. I take a big bathing towel and wrap my coffee maker and anything else that is on my kitchen counter and put it in the sink. I’m trying to recall where I put everything but then remembered this post: http://just5moreminutes.com/blog/?p=11874114 I hope that helped !!

  23. Love this!!! Amazing!

    I had a question- Where did you get your stainless steel oven top cover?

    • Thanks Sharon !! That stainless steel oven top cover came with our Airstream. I bet you could call Jackson Center and they would be able to sell you one :)

  24. From a comment on airforums, I followed the dots and ended up here. Just love your homey AS. I can see that you love decorating, love cooking and love food. What a great combination with an AS. Your photos remind me of Manhattan condo in a cooking magazine. Very, very nice. It will take a while to explore this blog. The reason for following the dots is that a few years back you owned and were praising the advantages of a 25′ AS, but now you have a 27. Since I am researching the practicality and size of an AS for living in for 5-9 months of the year (myself, wife, and dog) to follow the sun, I am very curious as to why you decided to upgrade to a bigger model when you seemed very happy with the 25?

    • Hello Craig :)

      I am completely, absolutely so flattered with your nice compliment about my photos. Thank you SO much !!

      So the story behind how we decided to switch from our 25 to 27 started off when we backed up our 25′ into a post on our piece of land and we put a nice big dent in our bumper. We took her down to Airstream of Seattle and got a quote from our insurance company for repairs. While on the lot we started walking around looking at different models and that’s when I saw the 27′ International Signature again in person (first time was in Spokane on our way up to Rossland, BC for a ski trip and I fell in love with the unit and eventually the love faded off because I realized that #1 the unit was very expensive and #2, we were perfectly happy with our 25). When I saw that unit again I fell in love all over. I guess you could say that the contrast of the dark woods and silver interior compared to our 25’s maple cabinetry was rather appealing to me. I also liked the queen bed that you could walk around because since we travel so much in wintertime, the twin beds on our 25′ always came with a chilly draft from the windows that were above. On our 27′ we don’t feel any drafts since we are in the middle of the room. But that is the ONLY negative we have about the twin beds — otherwise we think the layout of our 25 was perfect! The twins gave so much more space.

      So in a way, I guess you could say had we not bumped into that pole on our property — we would still have our 25′!

      In your situation I would highly recommend a 25. It will be big enough for you and your wife and your dog! We find that we can’t take our 27′ to places we used to with our 25′ (sad) because she is so much bigger. It really is amazing the difference in size!

      I hope that helped you and again, thank you so much for your sweet words!

      Keep in touch and let me know what you decide upon!

  25. It is my absolute life’s dream to own something like this, and to explore the nation with my lovelies. Yours’ is perfect, so pretty, so functional, tasteful yet chic. Thanks for the peek, inspiring.

    • Thank you for that Lainie — I hope your dream to own your very own RV and hit the road comes true soon :) Sending you shiny love — XOXO

  26. Hi Monica!

    What a lovely decorating job you have done to your Airstream!
    Thank you for all of the detailed photos – they have inspired me to inject a variety of colour into our 1963 Airstream Overlander, which we are working on.
    Even though I studied Interior Design, the vintage decor of the trailer has me uninspired.
    I will have to pin your photos onto my Pinterest Airstream board.

    Just thrilled that you love baking and are an organizing fanatic, like me!
    Let me know when you are travelling through the Okanagan Valley again – we live in Kelowna, BC.

    Happy Travels,
    Monica Untermann

    • Hi Monica, I will most definitely look you up! It would be fun getting together and discussing our organizing tricks :) Thank you for your sweet words to me. {{{HUGS}}}

      • Hi Monica,

        One Quick Question:
        What are your essential herbs/spices for cooking in the Airstream?
        There are too many options, and i need to narrow it down :-)

        Thanks!
        Monica

        • Hi Monica — I love questions like these. My spice jars are full of different varieties — some of which I have never used so far (like star Anise) but I take comfort in knowing I have them all with me, lol. But to be practical I would say the essentials are: garlic powder, bay leaves, cumin, curry, paprika, nutmeg, crushed red pepper, chili powder, cinnamon and your favorite herb blend (I love herbs de provence) and also your favorite rub. The other day at World Market, I found a cute little tin full of small pots of herbs and spices like cayenne paper, turmeric, ginger, etc. that would be perfect to keep in your pantry should you ever need them that don’t take up a lot of space.

          • Thanks Monica!

            Favorite spices purchased, and custom spice/oil/vinegar rack currently being built for countertop. I may have to invest in a few tiny spices too! So excited…now on to the baking ingredients, baking dishes, & kitchen containers.

            Hmmm…what to bake first? Boule, I think. Or pizza crust.
            And I can’t decide which tea towels to get – so many options…KitchenAid has nice striped ones with three shades of blue…oh, the choices!

            Keep up the inspiring work {{hug}}

  27. Where is the location where the river his n background and you are parked under a bunch of trees? Gorgeous! I must visit it! We just bought our first airstream 23′ International Signature. I so want to buy everything but until I pick i tup and see it I feel like I should wait.

    • Hi Stacey — we were camped along the Cle Elum river here in Washington state. Where are you from? I totally get the desire to want to buy everything for your Airstream before you have her. It’s hard to wait, lol! Congratulations and keep in touch !!

      • We live in Tallahassee, FL (north Florida). I am learning quickly I don’t like RV parks but like State parks better. We will do weekend trips for next year that are just couple hours away but then I told my husband I want to go out west. It is so beautiful. We are so flat and yes we have some of the best beaches here on gulf coast I want to see greenery and rivers! Keep up the great website and thank you for the inspiration!

        • Thanks Stacey that was really sweet :) I agree too — we much prefer State Park although every now and then we’ll find a really great RV Park. Look me up if you come out to the PNW and in the meantime, enjoy your beaches !! :) xoxo

  28. I LOVE your blog and jealous of the ‘peek inside’ – lol. My boyfriend owns (note I didn’t say was mine) an Rpod – although cute, I really wanted a Bambi/Airstream or my silver twinkie. Finances are what influenced his purchase, but I know some day I shall have one of my own. It’s a southern girl thing (I’m from Texas and Mississippi) but now live in Seattle as well.

    Always look forward to the next post and photos. Those are amazing as well.

  29. Hi.
    I really like your “shelving” in the kitchen. I can’t find anything because I’m too short. Can you tell me where you found them? I think that would be my solution to my storage problem.
    Really love your pictures. I need to get busy and add some style to ours.
    Thank you!
    Andi

  30. Just happened upon your site today!! Just LOVE your sense of style and your organizing tips! So many things You have incorporated into your AS that I would like to try. We have a 23′ Flying Cloud with much less storage space, so your ideas are
    F A B U L O U S!! Was curious how you attached the soap dispenser in your bathroom…I’m assuming a strong adhesive sticky? Thanks again for your wonderful ideas, pictures and your effort to provide details to them!

    Sidney:)

    • Hello Sidney — thank you for reaching out and thank you for your nice words :) That soap dispenser in the bathroom is the most genius product ever, ever – ever! it is by Simple Human and I bought it at the Container Store. It came with everything necessary to mount it to the walll — basically, silicone sealant and super duty double adhesive tape (to keep it in place while the silicone dries). They also sell those in sets of three which is perfect for the shower — one for shampoo / one for conditioners and the other for body soap. I hope that helps you xx

  31. You have such a beautiful eye for detail and for color. I absolutely LOVE the way it all fits together. I will be remodeling our trailer this year and would love to have some suggestions for color. I love the red, white, and turquoise color scheme but I have no idea where to use prints and where to use solids. I wish I had your eye for color and design ~ absolutely beautiful!

    • Oh you are just so sweet — thank you Krista :) !! I would love to help you along when the time comes, if you would like — how exciting to be remodeling a trailer :) Congrats !! I also love your color scheme — especially the turquoise :) Keep in touch !!

  32. BEAUTIFUL!!! We are in the process of restoring a 1972 Overlander and yours has given me so much inspiration to make it modern and comfortable!!

  33. I love the clock where can I find something like it? I also love everything you have done in the motor home. you really have made it like a home on wheels.

  34. Hi Monica,
    You are the queen of Glamping!! I love all your storage and design ideas. I especially love the way you decorate, I wish i had an eye for functional interior design in my AS.

    I was wondering how did you attach the ipad to the interior skin of the AS (kitchen)? I saw the clear stand for the bedroom, but I have a 23d and don’t have a night stand.

    Thanks for sharing your nifty ideas!

    Safe Travels
    GG

    • Hi GG — thank you for your sweet comment! I attached the iPad to the wall by using round velcro self adhesive discs. I found them at Michael’s craft store — they are the “industrial” strength ones and I applied four of them to the back of the iPad and the other four to the wall.

      • Oh nice! It that a full size ipad or ipad mini? I was trying to zoom in on the pictures without the ipad and didn’t see any velcro and/or adhesive strips. Are they gray? luv the valentines day decor!!
        from one glampor to another,
        GG

  35. Just got our first Air Stream, I was thinking way to conservative… You opened my eyes to all sorts of possibilities!

  36. Hi Monica. I’ve been following your blog & IG account for a while for inspiration for decorating my airstream. Just wondering how you attached the metal board to the wall for your kitchen organizer. I’ve been scanning Airstream forums for some ideas and can’t seem to figure it out. Also, have you installed any coat hooks in the bedroom? We have the 28′ Eddie Bauer Airstream that has the same set up as yours and I would like some hanging store on that blank wall. Any ideas?

    • Hi Tracey! I actually adhered the metal magnetic board to the wall with some silicone sealant. I learned this trick after buying the Simple Human soap dispensers that attach to the wall. They too used silicone sealant with the help of some super duty adhesive tape (to keep it in place during the drying/curing process). It dries strong and hard with a flexible hold. I do have about three coat hooks in our bedroom — they are those command hooks that hold like five pounds each. They work really well, the key is to let them set for 24 hours (or more) before you use them. I like the brushed steel look as it matches the aluminum skin nicely.

      I hope that helped you! Congrats on your Eddie Bauer — those are beautiful units. I think it’s really neat how the back opens up.

      Happy travels!

  37. hello, great airstream! I was trying to find out are your walls stainless steel or are they sheet-metal? Also wanted to know if you had to have new cabinets made or did you just refinish the old ones in (I’m guessing) Formica? Then replace the drawer fronts? You have some great ideas for RV’s, wish you designed them for the Rv company’s then we wouldn’t need to redecorate our Rv’s ever :-)

    • Hello Mark !! Sorry for the delay — it sounds like maybe you are thinking my Airstream was a remodel. We actually brought her home new !! Sorry if I mislead you somehow . . .

  38. Love your blog and photographs. Great way to mix travel and photography! If you don’t mind me asking, who hosts your blog?

  39. Monica:
    Very impressed with your creative decorating of the AirStream We bought ours 27FB last October and are having lots of fun.
    Where did you find the clock above the TV? Also looking for a mirror like yours in the bedroom.
    Thanks

    • Hi Bruce — thank you so much. Congrats on your new Airstream — happy to hear you have been enjoying her!! The clock above the TV — it came from here, but sadly, it looks as if it is out of stock. Maybe a Google search will help locate more? http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005G1BBBK/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Also, I don’t have mirror in the bedroom, but I think you may be referring to the round circle one in the bathroom and I found that at my local Target, back in the photo display area in the store. I hope this information has helped you Bruce !! I am wishing you happy and safe shiny travels xoxo

      • Love the blog! We just bought a 25ft. “plain jane” so it’s a blank canvas waiting for your magic!
        Please email me the picture of the cushion arrangement with the table down. I have done my best but it seems so deep to sit in and also no where inside to eat a meal. Got any thoughts on these problems?

  40. Monica
    I remember when you were selling your 2005 Safari and I longed to have had the finances to purchase yours….but today my wonderful husband just towed home a 2009 flying cloud! Where can I find the photo or video you took of the interior of your safari?
    Thank You
    Caroline Y

  41. Dear Monica. …
    I am in love with ur Airstream….I always keep on finding such caravans and travelling blogs on net as I always dream of travelling this way in my life.However with minimum resources while living in a third world country,I hope I would be able to do this sometimes in my life.

    Let me first appreciate your great management skills and decoration ideas.The interior is amazing and shows ur love and care.

    Having no prior experience of such airstreams I have a few questions in my mind and I hope u will take out some time to answer them.
    1)what is the water arrangements during ur travelling. Is there some water tank to store water for ur use in the kitchen and rest room? What is the mechanism for refilling?
    2) what are the arrangements for the wash room wastes to be disposed off?
    3)are there any laundary arrangements on ur airstream?what about fridge?
    4)please post some more pics of ur lovely rest room.I am more interested in shower and commode facility. :)
    Thanks for taking out time to read my long msg.hoping to get the answers soon.
    take care.

  42. Hi I love what you have done to your airstream. We have a 2011 28 ft. and I am always looking for new storage and decorating ideas. I am curious how did you make the sliding storage area over your bed yellow? My color scheme is orange and I would love to put something back there to make it orange.

    • Hi Carolyn !! Believe it or not, I didn’t do anything special to make it yellow in there — I simply have my pillows with yellow pillowcases that I store in there. The reflection from the pillows make it appear all yellow. Easy !

  43. this is absolutely amazing … you have done everything so wonderful. love it love it love it …

  44. Hi Monica,

    Love all the decoration you have done. We are thinking of buying a 27fb. I was wondering where you get the cute lamps in the bedroom and also the table you guys use that seems to fold down.

    Love reading your stories!

    Gladys

    • Hi Gladys :) The lamps, the ones that are red and yellow I am guessing (I have since switched them out to red lanterns . . .) I got from Pablo online — google, “Tube Top Lamps” and you will find them :) they come in a rainbow of colors ! Also the foldable table — which one are you referring to? The white one that is triangular in shape? I got that from Ikea — it’s a laptop table (forgot the name but if you search for “laptop table,” it will pop up for you on Ikea’s site). If you are referring to the dining table that folds down and then becomes our “lounge” area — that table came with our Airstream. I hope that helps you !!

  45. Your airstream is beautiful.

  46. I am absolutely thrilled about your website and beautiful photographs! I move into my 2007 25FB Internation full time in ten days. It came with the “Ocean Breeze” theme, so I am doing a total makeover and you are such an inspiration. I have not come across any other blog like yours about Airstreams.- it is fantastic. Your photos are simply breathtaking. I have a suggestion for you. I don’t know exactly how to do it, but you can make money by putting an Amazon link to each Fab Find product. I know that the “Gone With the Wynns” ( the adorable RVing couple) do it. Because of your recommendations, I bought the IKEA table and the Dyson vacuum. You would have received a little kick back for that. Just food for thought. :-)

    • Hi Lori, can I just say you totally made my day with your sweet comment? Thank you, thank you! I know, I should set up that Amazon account and maybe now after your nice words of encouragement I will. Really happy to hear you like J5MM — it’s a labor of love for me and when I hear from readers like you, it keeps me going. Thank you again for being here ! ♥

  47. Hi Monica,

    I have spent waaaaaay too much time in your gorgeous blog the last two days ;) I think I’ve looked at every square inch! I dream of owning a Serenity 25FB. I’m completely inspired by your writings and pictures. I’ve been checking out a ton of blogs on Airstreams but yours stopped me in my tracks…WOW…makes me want to throw caution to the wind and purchase my ultimate Airstream today. Thanks so much, I look forward to your future posts.

    • Thanks so much for your sweet words Soleil. You made my day way brighter, thank you !! I’m wishing you happy shiny travels once you bring your silver girl home ♥

  48. So perfect! We just bought our first airstream this week! We are coming from a 45 foot MH to a signature 30. I’m so glad to find your blog with awesome ideas!

    • Coming from MA this winter for 2 months with our two littles to the west coast! We love the coast and are excited to explore more! Any special spots we shouldn’t miss??

      • Absolutely ! If come to Washington State, you won’t want to miss a trip to the Olympic Peninsula with a stay at the Kalaloch Campground. Also be sure to visit the San Juan Islands — West Beach Resort has a beautiful campground. A trip south to Mt. Rainier at the White River Campground will take you up into the mountains and give you a real feel for a PNW experience. I hope that helped you! How exciting — wishing you safe and happy travels ♥

    • Congratulations! You have a beautiful unit there — I love the signatures so much ♥ Look me up if you come out to Washington. Would love to meet !

  49. Your airstream and decor is so lovely. Your photos are amazing. What an incredible adventure to have for your family. Your son will remember these days forever and hopefully share the same adventures with his family.
    I love all of your great ideas and I love the Ikea ideas you have used.
    I would like to ask how did you secure your iPod in your kitchen? It looks like it is attached on the wall. Did you use velcro?
    Your blog is an inspiration. My tiny home is a 2000 Bluebird Wanderlodge. My tiny home looks much more “lived in”. There are 4 of us and it is a battle zone for that “organizing ” word.
    Happy Trails :)

  50. Hi, I love your airstream! It’s beautiful. We are buying a little tiny one and I’m also wondering how you attach things-especially the magnet board. Thanks so much, it must get exhausting answering all of these questions.
    Happy Camping, Trina

    • I finally found your response above so no response needed. Silicone Sealant. Not sure what that is but I’m gonna go find some! :) Again, Thank you!

  51. Such a great airstream! I’m interested in the bathroom size. I am currently renovation an airstream and really want to relocate the bathroom however, it has to be small and your is perfect! Even though it’s small it has everything I have been looking for 😀 Anything you could tell me about he bathroom would be a tremendous help. I also love the overhead storage you have in the bedroom. What brand is it or do you know a website hat has something similar?!

    • Hi Jamie — I wish I could help you, but I can’t because I tried to see if there was any specific manufacture for the overhead bins and I couldn’t find anything written on them. But what you could do is visit the mothership of everything Airstreaming and I just bet you can find someone there that can help you! It is called Airforums.com — and believe me when I tell you there are so many helpful people on the forum that have saved my bacon many times. A very valuable resource for sure!

  52. Did you use silicon sealant to attach the knife magnet bar as well? Do you also take the knives down during travel or do they actually stay up?

    Just bought a 23d international serenity and the wife and I have been using your blog for great ideas. Thanks!

    • Pete, hello! Yes, I used silicone sealant for the knife magnet bar and believe me you, that is one strong magnet bar! I bought it at Ikea (not sure how other bars compare) and I tell you, those knives stay there and do not move! Really happy with it. Congratulations on your Airstream! The serenity is a beautiful unit for sure :)

  53. Hi Monica,
    My husband and I are thinking of purchasing our first Airstream in the next few weeks. I have been pouring over your beautiful blog and pictures to get ideas. I love, love, love your passion and creativity for decorating and cooking. You are definitely one talented individual! I have a question about the pullout privacy screen that separates the shower from the kitchen area. Do you know if you would be able to replace the accordion screen with a fabric curtain? Also, any other ideas about the shower area. Thanks!

    • Robin, hello! Thanks so much for your nice words :) Yes, you can absolutely replace the accordion screen with a fabric one. There have been a few Airstreamer’s who have done so. Check out Tiffani and Deke’s post about it, it should be quite helpful (but I would note, don’t take the fabric all the way down to the floor — leave some space like the accoridan one’s have now because when you use your heater, you’ll want the heat to travel all over the inside — otherwise I fear the divider may blow around from the force of the air coming from the vents, if that makes any sense): http://www.weaselmouth.com/2011/08/25/accordion-room-dividers-be-gone/

  54. Monica, do you recall where you purchased the black and white Aztec rug that’s in the lounge area in some of the photos? Great airstream by the way.

    • Oh no I am so sorry :( Hubs brought that rug home from one of his trips to Mexico — but I will keep my eye out if I find a similar one for you!

  55. Would you kindly tell me how you attached the magnetic knife strip to the wall? Thank you!

    • Sure thing — I used silicone sealant to adhere it to the wall. It dries in a “flexible” form which is great as it “moves” with the skin of the Airstream during towing. If that makes sense. Hope that helps and thanks for being here!

  56. Oh my heavens, I just found this and now I am totally smitten! The beauty and function are incredible. This is SO fun. OK gush time over, now for the question. I love the “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” on your shade; is that a stencil? If so, could I ask how it was applied?

    Thank you for sharing your wonderful talent!

  57. Wow! doesn’t give this enough compliment but WOW! A few questions as we have just gutted an Avion…shhh…not an airstream….I assume your vent hood is metal as it seems to have magnetic spices on it. Where did you find the spice containers? Also, the larger rectangle to the left of the stove. Did you attach that like the one above the stove or did that come with the airstream. It seems to hold alot of magnetic items which I absolutely love. If you added it where did you purchase. Is the floor hardwood or laminate. Just curious. It is so open and airy and the floor adds to that feel! I also see you were skiing/camping in your airstream. Where? I didn’t realize campgrounds were open in winter around the ski resorts. One last question How is the TV attached in the corner across from the kitchen. Love that! Again, you have done an incredible job and it is luxurious yet liveable! Thanks in advance for answering any questions! Happy Travels!

    • Hi Pam — the spice containers came from the Container Store as well as World Market (the red and green ones). The magnetic spice board to the left of my stove is actually a magnetic bulletin board I bought at the Container Store and I covered it with white contact paper and adhered the whole thing with silicone sealant. When dry silicone sealant has a “rubbery” set so it moves and grooves with the Airstream under tow so it really stays put. I love it. The floor is laminate. We really enjoy winter camping and yes, you’d be surprised how many resorts offer RV spots — most of which we have come across are dry spots, but once in a while you’ll score and come across a ski resort that offers up full hookups (Rossland, BC for example — Red Mountain). Oh and the TV is attached with a mount that came with the Airstream — it swivels out so you can angle it any which way almost. This was factory standard from Airstream (as well as the floors you were asking me about). I hope this helped you!! Thank you for reaching out XO

  58. Hi! Love what you have done with your airstream!

    My husband and I are debating between the 28′ Flying Cloud and the International. What do you feel about the storage in your international with the sliding cabinet doors versus the lift up cabinets. Do you find you are limited on what will fit in your cabinets due to the small opening of the sliding doors?

    Also, we have 2 small kids. We sit them at a table to eat. I noticed that you turn your dinette into a seating area often. Why do you do that? Do you need to for more seating area? My husband and I are in constant discussion about having your configuration or the traditional dinette.

    How do you fee about the practicality of white seating areas with dogs and kids? We are torn as to get the white or the dark brown seating.

    Thank you!

    • Hi Brandy — so our first 2006 Airstream was a 25′ Safari (now called Flying Cloud) and it had the same cabinets you are asking me about. I have to be frank here, I MISS those cabinets. Yes, I could fit WAAAAAY more stuff inside and I adored the fact that they “lifted up,” vs “sliding,” like ours do now in our Airstream. Also with our “sliding” cabinet doors, they can get off track while towing which means you’ll be messing with getting them back on track. I will say that they look very posh and elegant but they do most certainly get scratched up from things inside of the cabinet while under tow. I’m at a point now where I am thinking about having them replaced. They are soooooo scratched up.

      As for why we keep the dinette down all the time and use the area as a “lounge,” well, we just like having all that space to relax. We figure that when we are camping we’ll be dining outside on the picnic tables, or if the weather is not cooperating we’ll dine inside at the little table I have (it’s enough for two people). I have a “TV tray,” of sorts that I will use for our son as well. But I do have to admit, the 28′ is very nice with the built in dinette — just not crazy about the sink configuration being right next to the sofa and the TV being on the wall behind the dinette (heads blocking the way of the TV is someone is sitting at the dinette).

      As for the seating areas, I would be prepared to accept the fact that the white will show wear and tear faster than the brown. For that reason I use sheepskin throws over the cushions because I want them to last as long as possible. I think if I didn’t have the throws, the cushions would be trashed by now — especially by our little dog.

      It’s always a tough decision trying to decide between which Airstream is best when you have two gorgeous contenders (and believe me, we went back and forth between the 28′ and the 27′ — the sink and the TV placement were kind of the deal breakers for me — but I will say if we had two small children {B is now 12} we probably would have went for the 28′).

      I hope that helped you a little bit :) XO
