Last week, after being inspired by this month’s Ford Fiesta Movement theme, STYLE, I challenged myself. I decided to give Riley, my vintage trailer, a little more style. I had saved a few vintage items that I’ve found at flea markets and thrift stores this year and I also added some fabulous new finds.
I’m really happy with the results and I hope that my Riley Style translates and you can understand where I’m going with this. I tried to stay true to my original inspiration board, a little vintage, a lot of color, and very much outdoorsy. I think I found a lot of the pieces I wanted. The only thing I’m missing is some pink plaid and maybe a little more mint green here and there. He’s getting some personality though, and although he is a mountain man, he doesn’t take himself too seriously. There’s a lot of fun, quirky pieces that keep this old guy (built in 1948) young and hip.
This adorable print called, Theodore Collects Firewood, is hung by a vintage wood hanger. Art in trailers can be tricky. You don’t want anything heavy or breakable. This can easily be taken down and laid flat when in transit.
Yesterday I made one more pillow. This felt white bear kind of looks like a polar bear, but actually he’s my California bear. And this new pillow looks great beside the Alaska pillow I made years and years ago. And really, does anything say mountain man more then read red plaid flannel?
I still like my birds and wire hanging thing that I put up a while ago. It’s fun to change out the pictures now and then.
I found this green oak leaf tray at a local flea market this weekend for only $5. It may come inside for Fall decorating as well.
So, what do you think? Did I succeed in making Riley a little more stylish? What was your favorite addition? What else does he need or what would you do to him? I’d love to know your thoughts and opinions.
Be sure to check out more of the movement’s STYLE videos this month, maybe you’ll be inspired.
