At Home With Sarah LoCascio

Adorable dining area in a camperToday we welcome Sarah LoCascio to the blog to share her adorable camper with us!At Home With Sarah LoCascio via A Beautiful Mess"My Husband and I got our 1983 Sunline camper 'Sunny' this past October. Up until that time we had owned several pop-up campers, so this was a very exciting find for us as. We spend A LOT of time camping and traveling with our camper. Handy overhead storage inside a camper"When we first got 'Sunny' she was decked out in dingy brown plaid and (what was at one point) white carpeting. We knew right away that we wanted to strip down the interior, removing the heavy brown curtains, to bring light and sunshine into our space. We ripped out everything, and I got to work sewing fresh curtains, valences, cushion covers, etc. We also pulled out all of the carpeting and installed a nice, clean wood-grain linoleum floor. We wanted to preserve a lot of the wood veneer in the cabinets and a few of the walls, but everything else got a nice clean coat of bright white paint (I also gave the top kitchen cabinets a coat of white with a red trim). Then I got to the fun part, searching for vintage bedding, little knickknacks, kitchen accessories, etc."Kitschy vintageMIsmatched vintage pillows and blankets"Decorating 'Sunny' has been the most fun, and it is an ongoing hobby for both of us. After our very first trip with 'Sunny' I was in love. It had become so cozy and sweet inside, and it is so wonderful to have our very own little home when we go places over night. I often joke that if we had to live in here for a bit, I wouldn't bat an eye…even our pups love snuggling down inside."Love all the vintage detailsCutest pupEmpire Coffee"We've made great progress on the inside and can't wait to tackle the exterior next. We are dreaming of stripping all of the paint and decals off of the outside and leaving 'Sunny' gleaming in clean silver metal. The interior is always changing, as we find things along the way and work them into the decor. I love that this little space is being filled with our trip souvenirs and travel/life mementos."

Vintage pillowsBright cocktailsAdorable little camper"Wherever we go, 'Sunny' is hitched up behind us. Whether it's a camping trip, or a few nights away at my Grandmother's house, it's wonderful to have our cozy home-away-from-home with us. We have our tiny bathroom and shower, the little gas powered stove in the kitchenette, and our big comfy quilt-covered bed. We honestly use and love every square inch of the space, and I can't imagine our lives with our sweet, sweet 'Sunny'."

  • This makes me want to have a camper really badly.
    How cute is this!!!

  • So cute! I would love to have an older camper to fix up some day! I love seeing pictures of others people’s 🙂

  • I never thought one of those could look so nice. Thats pretty amazing! Now i might have to try that out.

  • This is probably the most interesting ‘At Home with…’ feature! I’ve always loved the idea of having a ‘home away from home’ kind of thing. It looks so cozy and personal. 🙂

  • Gorgeous!!! I am in love with your camper and the decor you’ve selected. Such a great eye to make your home cosy but with reference to its era. Thanks for sharing!

  • Gah! So cute! I am so in love with the whole “camper lifestyle” but I’m not sure how I’d adjust to the lack of space on longer trips. That would be so great to stay in at a relative’s house though! I love the idea of buying an old Winnebago and traveling the country with my husband and cats. Hehehe

  • This is simply perfect! Our hippie hearts beat higher! Thanks so much!

  • Oh my word! I think I want my own camper now. So cute!
    (^ω^)

  • That camper is totally adorable! And the image of your dog on the bed just made me melt! Can’t wait to get my bedroom in order after the repaint for the reader’s At Home Series!

  • I love Sunny! My husband and I recently added a 1966 Serro Scotty to the family- we named her Betty. The homey touches you have added to the interior are charming. I’m inspired! Thanks for sharing.

  • I love the trailer but that dog is just so adorable he steals the show.

  • Omg! My boyfriend & I always talk about buying a camper and doing this EXACT thing! Love IT! xx

  • This is so unique and SO cool! Just yesterday my friends and I were talking about what it would be like to live in a converted school bus. Now my imagination is going wild! Sarah has done an amazing job with this space.
