Interior Designer, Rachel Horn's Updated Airstream...

  The Bonaroo music festival is just around the corner, which means a lot of tents, sleeping-bags and hot dogs are about to arrive in Manchester, Tennessee. But what if you're not quite the camping type, hate sleeping bags or don't want to mess with the porta-potty, well - mess? Take a few tips from Los Angeles-based interior designer Rachel Horn, and her rendition of camping (entitled, glamping) in her updated, upscaled and fully remodeled vintage Airstream. Wow, it's cool...

 

The Story:

Rachel Horn and her husband slash business partner, Justin Kreizel, decided it was time to take a little trip - and this time there weren't any first class options or five-star ratings in mind, but that of the desert, a few thousand people and a splattering of bands. Their 2011 trip to Nevada's Burning Man music festival began with the purchase of a 180-square-foot 1969 Airstream for $5,000 (that they purchased off of craigslist I might add). With a budget of $20,000, they amped the trailer up a bit - and by a bit, I mean a lot.

This gorgeous space boasts of luxurious fabrics, cozy seating and best of all, plumbing! If camping means an espresso machine, a comfy bed and a shower - then Rachel and Justin are in!
