Wives-turned-business partners Kate Oliver and Ellen Prasse not only lives in an Airstream but also renovate these mobile homes for other. After deciding to trade their nine-to-five jobs for a life on the road three years ago, the pair made flipping retro caravans into tiny, contemporary retreats, their full-time gig. The couple now has renovated six Airstreams: three for clients, and three for themselves. This Airstream with hints of pink is their latest fixer-upper, created for clients Chris and Page whodecided to switch gears and explore North America by Airstream. Kate: “As we worked through the design plan, we were able to use our knowledge of living in an Airstream to help them understand how the space would be used. Living tiny is a willing sacrifice and it’s not the same as life in an average sized home, which is why we work so closely with clients to determine the things they need the most and then the things they want the most. Needs and function come first, wants come second. Beautiful design, for us, is always important.” You can read the entire article here on Domino. If you also want some blush touches in your (mobile) home, you can find some inspiration in yesterday’s post.

Eden Locke is a 72 room hotel located in Edinburgh’s New Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site characterised by properties of the Georgian era. The hotel has been designed by New York City based practice Grzywinski+Pons. “The project was a complete gut renovation and comprehensive fit out of an existing hybridized structure. We took an 18th Century Georgian mansion and its 20th Century extension down to their respective bones and created the hotel from there.” Throughout the building a palette of warm materials and textures was crafted, powdery tones and soft lighting that make the most of the inimitably breathtaking natural light in Scotland. The end result is a design-led aparthotel for those who want to challenge the status quo, and experience the unique and authentic. Designed for travellers for whom a bed and shower in a shoebox isn’t enough, Eden Locke immerses you in its neighbourhood’s culture through spaces that connect you to a community of like-minded locals and travellers.
The designers: “Our intention was that the tension between the severe and stony building fabric and the verdant interior would foster measured incongruity where one exalts the other. We also designed much of the furniture and all of the joinery and employed bent wood, cane, wicker and terra cotta in equal measure with brass, stone, cementitious cladding and steel, all of which sits amongst ample vegetation. At the thresholds into the building we paid special attention as to how to architecturally transition between both the spaces and the eras. Glazed fanlights and wrought iron are framed by glass, timber and stone vestibules. Vignettes of the space within are shown to the street and the exterior ashlar and interior elevations form a studied composition on the facade.”
