From shabby chic to rock 'n' roll heaven, restful craft room retreats to road-tripping travelling vans; from on-site artist studios and relaxing, reflective retreats, to travelling markets stalls and family summer holiday abodes; and from chandelier-clad glamping venues to the pride and joy of long-term nomadic lifestylers - there's a dream vintage caravan for everyone.Vintage Caravan Style takes the reader on a visual voyage through the world of vintage and retro caravans, exploring both the exterior and interior design of these classic icons.

Over 350 beautiful and inspirational photos sit alongside practical tips on restoring, upcycling, decorating and styling the small spaces of your dreams - whether you own a caravan, beach hut, shepherd's hut or even a shed - satisfying the desire to see inside other people's spaces and take inspiration from the small but perfectly formed spaces they have created.
