When you understand the basic principles and colours of classic and timeless design for a new build, it’s just as easy to make your own choices when it’s time to customize your RV.
Lea and Greg’s Boxer Lab Cross (Babs)
My sisters partner Greg (below) retired this Spring and to celebrate, they bought a new RV Camper to replace their old one! Lea called me to help her choose their own finishes because the standard choices were still in the Tuscan brown trend.
Greg & Lea
Oak or Maple Millwork
There were two choices for the cabinets. Oak and maple. We chose maple because the oak option still felt too much like the 80s.
The walls in this camper are padded white vinyl.
There are two colour choices for classic and timeless wood floors
Pale or medium brown floors.
You could choose grey but it would place your colours in the grey trend.
We chose the medium brown option (above)
The bathroom has a shower in it as well! Lea spotted this little hit of plastic greenery that fit perfectly in the shower caddy! You need something to look at when the bathroom is this simple!
Greg always brings the guitar with them when they go on the road (below):
Choose vinyl for the seats and a treated outdoor fabric for the backs
These are the standard finishes if you don’t upgrade and choose your own. However, each upgrade costs only $100 extra, although you do have to pay for your own fabric for the bench seats and the slim valance that covers the pink beige honeycomb shades (there was no option to change that colour).
It’s the reason why I think pink beige should be banished from the colour world. It’s too often chosen as a default colour.
Lea fell in love with this treated outdoor Paisley fabric online and after she ordered it, we found a vinyl Sunbrella for the seats to coordinate. We repeated the solid blue on the valances (because did not have the option to choose a third fabric).
We were thrilled to find the two patterned pillows, one with pussy willows and the other with these fabulous turquoise and purple leaves (hey we are camping in nature) that coordinated perfectly with her fabric.
White faux marble laminate countertops go with everything
The new white faux marble countertop is perfect (below). Classic and timeless!
Lea spotted these Moomin camping mugs (made in Finland) on an Instagram site she follows.
I always love a cute face!
I love this sweet little little black plant pot with faux lilies of the valley
Coordinate your exterior colours with the interior
There were countless colour options to choose for the stripes on the exterior of the camper. Once we had the interior colours chosen it was easy to make this final colour choice.
And here’s my sweet sister Lea, happy in her newly decorated Escape RV!
Well what do you think? Happy or what? I love it!
