Airstream Dreams

By , December 14, 2011 11:12 am

Downsizing is all about priorities. What do you really need to live, work and play? What are the essentials? Arriving at a place where your space is smaller may actually lead to a larger lifestyle. Mobility, less financial burden, a clutter free existence – FREEDOM!

So, I love it when I see successful people living in downsized homes whether it be a condo, apartment, town-home or trailer! Check out this fabulous retro airstream that has only 150 sq. ft of living space and has been refurbished by landscape architect, Andreas Stavroupolo.

Andreas actually works from a second trailer that provides ample natural light, plenty of desk and wall space to spread out his plans and is equipped with solar panels that power his laptop and other electronics. Now, that’s just plain cool (and green)!

Stavroupolo loves the freedom this lifestyle affords him and the ability to live and work on or near his work sites helps him personally connect with each project.

Do you have any dreams of owning an airstream? Or perhaps you already do…I would love to hear about it!

Cozy Winter Cabin

Well, we have a dusting of snow here in Portland and the temperatures are downright frigid, so I couldn’t help but think about how fabulous a cozy winter cabin would be.

I love this tiny 800 square foot home. So perfectly quaint. Makes you want to grab a good book, warm your toes by the fire and sip hot cocoa (or wine).


A wonderfully charming rustic kitchen! That vintage blue hutch is a perfect fit! Mixing furniture pieces like this with cabinetry really adds to the character of a kitchen.

How inviting is this little reading nook in the loft? I wouldn’t leave that chair!

So great right? It’s like a winter version of my beach cottage! Love it! Do you have a winter retreat?

Where ever you are, I hope you have a fabulous Thanksgiving! Stay warm, enjoy your family, friends and of course, the food!!
