Let's face it, aluminum is pretty neutral-- but it can also be cold and sterile. So when it came time to choose interiors for the Airstream, I wanted to play up that simplicity and also make sure it looked-and felt-warm.
Make the most of the existing design
Keep the space simple
Comfort is key
Spend less on the 'stuff' than I did on the AS

So that's what I did.
Chose cotton and linen bedding that can be easily washed between trips.
Kept the original (uncomfortable but dog, kid and dirt safe) bedspread to protect the bedding from dirt and dust during the day.
Chose Corelle dishware that is nearly indesctructible and can go from the oven to the microwave to the table safely. (Plus, they had just introduced a new pattern that looks riveted. How could I resist?).
Pulled a set of vintage copper cookware out of storage to use in the camper-- perfect choice for its durability, style, and scale.
Chose white towels (with an easy-to-do, super-practical addition) that can be bleached if needed.
Went with similarly upgraded kitchen towels (with easy-to-do, super-practical addition) that are black and dark grey since they'll get lots of use for coffee and the grill.
