5 MINUTES WITH BONNIE | CARAVAN CONVERSION
We have been so blown away by the love you've shown for the caravan conversion!!! So we sat down with Bon this week to get the low down on how she did it. Who would have thought an old run down girl like this (the caravan, not Bonnie) could be transformed into such a slice of heaven.
Q: WHAT INSPIRED YOU FOR THIS SPACE?
Bonnie: This property is a weekender so I really wanted it to feel like you are on holidays and for it to be a really beautiful space. I was also inspired by the surrounds of the property. It’s located on the river and has beautiful bush views.
Q: HOW DID YOU PICK THE COLOUR PALETTE?
Bonnie: The colour palette actually started with the wall paper. It’s a bit crazy looking and packs a real punch in the room. It runs up the wall and then onto the ceiling so it’s like you are surrounded by the beautiful Strelitzias. Once I found the wall paper, I knew I wanted colours which were a bit more muted so I picked the blush, the rattan and the little pops of green and gold.
Q: WHAT'S YOUR FAVOURITE THING IN THE ROOM?
Bonnie: What? One thing?!! OMG it’s so hard to pick just one thing! Honestly, I love it all… I guess I’d say the wall colour which is Dulux Parchment Paper. I’m seriously in love with it as an alternative to white. Oh…but then again, I also reaaaally love the wall paper… And I also really love the bunks! I’ve always wanted to put in bunk beds.
Q: HOW EXACTLY DID YOU CREATE THOSE SUPER CUTE BUNK BEDS?
Bonnie: I found a super cute pic on Insta, showed my builder and he knocked them up in a few hours out of plywood.
After the bunks were built, for mattresses we had some thick foam inserts custom cut so they fit perfectly. And lastly, to finish it off we painted the plywood in the same colour as the walls.
Q: SO WHAT ROOM ARE YOU REVEALING NEXT?
Bonnie: The kitchen! This one’s going to really pack a punch. I cannot wait to show everyone how it came together.
