From shabby chic to rock 'n' roll heaven, restful craft room retreats to road-tripping travelling vans; from on-site artist studios and relaxing, reflective retreats, to travelling markets stalls and family summer holiday abodes; and from chandelier-clad glamping venues to the pride and joy of long-term nomadic lifestylers - there's a dream vintage caravan for everyone. Vintage Caravan Style takes the reader on a visual voyage through the world of vintage and retro caravans, exploring both the exterior and interior design of these classic icons. The book reveals the huge resurgence of interest in modern-vintage caravans - whether used for touring or as creative backyard spaces - and reveals how you can buy, restore and style a little capsule of retro heaven. Over 350 beautiful and inspirational photos sit alongside practical tips on restoring, upcycling, decorating and styling the small spaces of your dreams - whether you own a caravan, beach hut, shepherd's hut or even a shed - satisfying the desire to see inside other people's spaces and take inspiration from the small but perfectly formed spaces they have created.
Lisa Mora is the editor of Vintage Caravan Magazine, the world's first magazine solely dedicated to vintage, classic, retro-styled and custom caravans and those who love them. Lisa started her career as a music reporter before becoming a staff writer for car magazine Vehicle Mania. Lisa bought herself an old caravan, decked it out in pink and began using it as a portable office while she attended car shows. After great public response to the articles she had published on the subject and her blog My Dream Home is Portable, Lisa launched Vintage Caravan Magazine in 2011. She lives on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia. www.vintagecaravanmagazine.com
