We are Gregory and Lauren. We sold our stick built cabin on beautiful Torch Lake in Michigan to begin adventuring and exploring the US in our very own Tin Cabin, a 25' Globetrotter.
We pick her up on March 29th, and we couldn't be more excited. We have spent the better part of the last 6 months watching YouTube videos about Airstreams including some our favorites: Patrick from Colonial Airstream, and Lauren & Daniel from Wanderlocal. We have honestly probably watched hundreds of hours of Airstream videos, and can't wait to have our very own.
It took a whole lot of deliberation to decide which floor plan and model would fit our needs best, and we aren't quite sure we got it right, but we will take you along for the journey (a bit more on how we chose what we did soon).
This is the interior layout of our lovely Globetrotter:
We initially planned to purchase a brand spanking new 27' Globetrotter with Barcelona Blue cushions and light Elm cabinetry, but fell in love with this 25' which we snagged slightly used. Actually, our 27' is still on order (due the end of August, 5 months from now) so that we have a contingency plan should the 25' feel a little too cramped. Typically we only like very light interiors, but something about the contrast between the walnut wood and the cream cushions had us falling in love (this photo below is actually a 27', but nearly identical to the 25', with slightly larger drawers next to the stove here).
In typical me fashion, I immediately needed to decide on a theme for the decorations. This is where Gregory is likely rolling his eyes 🤣. Decorations, home decor, etc. aren't really his thing, and to be fair, I don't think it's most guys 'thing' either. To his credit though, the entire theme was inspired by his love for the stunning Tommy Bahama Airstreams.
Here are the throw pillows, throw blanket, sham and bedding I purchased to create a similar atmosphere. Will definitely post photos once these are all on the bed-- but I think I did a pretty sweet job recreating the atmosphere, no?
I was able to find an extremely similar Tommy Bahama sham at Macy's, and throw pillows and throw blanket at Wayfair and Overstock. The bedding is the 'Cream of the Crop' set from Beddy's (if you haven't checked out the convenience of these, then you should definitely take a peek). I'm incredibly excited to see how the Beddy's fit in our twin layout.
I will certainly be sure to post as soon as we have it all decorated.
Next up: organizing the kitchen. Eek 🤪 I see a trip to the Container Store in my future. If you have any tips on organizing an Airstream, send them our way.
Until next time, adventure more. ⛺️
