The insulation on my Campster is black rats fur. It's nice and clean, looks good- but it's black. I'm thinking up color schemes and would like to lighten up the interior. I don't think I'm going to cover the cushions right away but want to redo the curtains and paint the cabinets. I don't want plain old black and white, I like colors like red and forest green. Any ideas?

Bobbie

If you like red or forest green - or any other kind-of-dark colors - I'd suggest a print for the uphostery and curtains. That way you get some deep colors but also, hopefully, some light colors (white, yellow, cream) mixed in the print.
Pick a really light color from the print upholtery for the cabinets, etc.

Sounds challenging - will look forward to seeing the pictures!!

Look at fabric by Michael Miller (a quick ebay search will give you an idea), he does alot with mixing colors with black. A walk through the decorator fabrics at your local fabric store will give you great ideas--or a bed and bath store.

Neutral colors would look great with black also. I LOVE the interior on this trailer, I hope its ok to copy it back here, anyway this pattern also came in one with blacks instead of browns I believe.

Red, White, and Black. Think 50's Diner. That's what I googled to get Ideas.

Idea #2

Since the walls are already black, use another color in the flooring or cabinets, like turquoise. Co-ordinate the cabinet color with the curtain color, and do the upholstery different. Balance or accent the color with white, like piping and buttons in the upholstery.

OK, that's 4 colors: Black, Red, Turquoise, White...

If you saw our home and both trailers, you'd know that our solution to any decorating dilemma is always to go for the feel of Hawaii. I think that would work great in your Campster too! Here's one idea from Hawaii Fabric Mart.

Good ideas, everyone. I think I'll look for a print that I like that has the basic colors I like and would look good with black, and then take a color from that for the cushions. I like the teal idea, might use that for cabinets. I'll see what I can find in fabric, first, I guess.

Dust Ruffle! Dust Ruffle!

Pick your ruffle and base all other ideas from there...



If you wanted a more elegant theme, use gray or matte silver. A light gray carpet, or a faux stone look on the floor is a good start. Brushed chrome stove, fridge and table trim, grey table tops, faux stone counters, light gray paint on the cabinet doors, brushed chrome knobs etc..you get the idea.

or, you could go with my basic theme - everything I own is either dog colored or dirt colored! black, tans, browns and for some reason certain blues work nicely too.

keeps life very simple! (patterns work nicely too)

I agree totally with Carol. Tans, browns , beige tones etc....However I have seen a pale butter cream yellow with black and it looked beautiful. Daisy prints were added to tie it all together. Looked really fresh and bright....

Happy trails Mitch

They work well, I hate them! I worry about the black and corgi hair but at least I should be able to vacuum it off. I want color. I looked at some fabrics today with teal, yellow, and a bit of red, similar to what I want but I need to find a cheaper source than the quilt shop.

Bobbie,
Go with home. Fresno has lots of oranges and lemons, but don't forget the red/black bulldogs.
