AMER­I­CAN ROAD TRIP

IN­TE­RI­ORS IN­SPIRED BY AN

Your Home and Garden - - Shopping -

Huge skies and long, end­less roads frame the breath­tak­ing scenery you’ll see while road-trip­ping around Amer­ica. There’s noth­ing like hit­ting the high­way in a mini RV armed with ev­ery­thing you need, a map and the free­dom to go wher­ever you please. Driv­ing from moun­tain to desert makes you re­alise how big the US is, and how small we are. The only con­stants are the wide blue sky and the greys and yel­lows of the open road – the colours of our road-trip pal­ette. Fur­nish­ings are in­spired by the clash be­tween man and na­ture, with tex­tures such as plas­tic and ce­ment paired with the colours of deep green cacti, yel­low desert flow­ers and tex­tured grey stone.

STYLING TIPS

> The grey of the road is the ba­sis for this pal­ette. Start with neu­tral shades then pack a punch with yel­low and blue.

> A sim­ple cin­derblock makes a cool, af­ford­able side ta­ble and evokes the con­crete of Amer­i­can side­walks. > Choose lights with a vin­tage feel like those you see in the road­side din­ers of yes­ter­year.

> Shiny plas­tic sur­faces pro­vide an in­ter­est­ing con­trast to soft grey fur­nish­ings – white plas­tic still feels con­tem­po­rary but has a fun, tacky vibe.

> Try paint­ing blocks of colour on a fea­ture wall to frame a state­ment print fea­tur­ing sim­i­lar tones.

> Keep your travel bag packed and ready for the next ad­ven­ture!
