Ritual: Summer Camping, the Stylish Way
Jun 09, 2010
About this time of year my husband starts carefully planning his pitch to get me interested in camping, just a few times. It's not that I'm not interested in the outdoors— quite the opposite, actually. I love hiking, biking, canoeing, swimming, picnicking, and pretty much any summer outdoor activity. On a nice day, I'd rather be outside than anywhere else. But at the end of such a perfect day in the fresh air, I like to climb into a nice, cushy bed under an actual roof. Waking up with damp hair and a freezing nose on a flattened air mattress that smells like tires isn't really my idea of fun. Neither is a power bar for breakfast.
So I propose that we kick our gear up a notch and get one of these vintage teardrop camper trailers:

It's a model of efficiency and style, with a comfy bed in the main compartment and a kitchen under the back hatch. The whole thing is so small you can haul it with a compact car. Wilds of Michigan, you've never looked so good.

The good news is, I'm busy! The bad news is, I'm busy! As in, too busy to blog regularly. I'll still throw you guys a design bone when I can, but for the next couple of weeks I'll be busy churning out ideas and plans for budget-minded clients near and far. In the meantime, consider how I might tack your project onto my list. I'll be taking on new work in a couple of weeks. Just email me! —Diane
