Mobile Interior Design Studio

The last few weeks I have been traveling from interior design client to interior design client and I thought yesterday – I need a mobile design studio. I have always had a crazy desire to remodel and design the interior of an Airstream Trailer. Wouldn’t that be a great mobile interior design office?  I could have all my samples and catalogs right there to show my clients. I think it would be a novel idea.

Early last year I saw this post on Apartment Therapy and that is what got me to thinkin’

Then I saw this post on Autoblog. The automakers of the Mini Cooper have joined with Airstream to create this concept. Together with Danish furniture designer, Republic of Fritz Hansen, the companies have created a concept Mini Cooper S Clubman coupled to a matching 22-foot Airstream trailer with a "down-by-the beach" feel. Looks very stylish to me.

I found this cutie on CycloContractor, already for me to stuff the shelves with textiles, tile, carpet, and paint chips. Oh, my creative mind is reeling.......

Cardboard Trophies - YES

This is just about the cutest thing!! Cardboard animal trophies. One of the exhibitors at Las Vegas World Market was Cardboard Safari and I just fell in love with their designs. Scott Jessee and I talked for a long while about his product. You will be seeing Bucky, Eyan or Fred in one of my design projects!!

Shapes and Silhouettes

What a great way to begin my 2012 design career by attending the Las Vegas World Market Trade Show. And it was a fascinating experience. The first few days I networked with many people and attended interesting events and seminars. Having made my rounds to the showrooms that I had open accounts with and completed all appointments, I decided on my last day at the show to just explore and discover what was new. I quickly began to recognize recurring themes - horses, topography, and a riot of colorful fun.  Here are a few of my favorites from Liora Manne, Surya, Guildmaster, Safavieh, and Global Views.
