The current issue of Romantic Homes has a feature on one of my favorite companies. Magnolia Pearl. I've been following them for a few years. Since I first saw an article about them in Mary Engelbreit's Home Companion (around '04 I think). If you love vintage lace, tapestries, velvet and rich embellishments Magnolia Pearl has plenty of it. They also have a decorating book out, A Bit of Velvet and a Dash of Lace with lots of excellent photos of their clothing and home decor designs.

Romantic Homes is featuring the custom Airstream trailer owners Robin and John take to their annual antique show. They've completely outfitted it to reflect their very unique style and to me it looks like a modern gypsy wagon. Complete with handmade bed, chandelier and clawfoot bathtub. I did a post a few months ago on Les Verdines, the gypsy wagons by French designer Jeanne Bayol, and how I dream of having my own one day.

Since I also love Airstreams I couldn't help but drool over this one. You can see more at Magnolia Pearl.

Of course you gotta have the matching Rolls Royce to tow it with!

The airstream is incredible. There is one a few blocks away just kind of rotting away. We are thinking of leaving a letter at the house asking if for sale (I believe the owner has passed). This reminds me of the Partridge Family's bus. I would love to some day have a caboose that would become my studio!
cheers, dana

Sigh...we can all dream, can't we? I have Robin's book and it is pure magic. It sits on my coffee table, and I love to thumb through the pages. She is pure inspiration, and her home is magical. I am waiting until we get that copy of Romantic Homes here in Australia...that airstream is to die for!
