My kind of caravan!

I don't know how I missed this but it has me written all over it!  In 2010 famous New Zealand fashion designer, Trelise Cooper, bought a run down old caravan...


And with the help of some very clever tradesmen, transformed it in to this amazing summer time accommodation...


I fell in love the minute I laid eyes on it!  I am all about polka dots and bunting!  It reminds me of something out of He-Di-Hi.

That's the lovely Ms Cooper standing in front of the caravan which toured New Zealand raising money for breast cancer and in the end was auctioned off with the proceeds also going to the Breast Cancer Foundation.  I am totally in love.  While doing my research I found that the people who won it now rent it out for between $90 and $110 a night.  Gorgeous!  (I can't seem to find the link anymore but if you're intersted let me know and I'll have another look).

Here are some shots of the interior...  Just like a 1950's diner but cozier :)
