From shabby chic to rock 'n' roll heaven, restful craft room retreats to road-tripping travelling vans; from on-site artist studios and relaxing, reflective retreats, to travelling markets stalls and family summer holiday abodes; and from chandelier-clad glamping venues to the pride and joy of long-term nomadic lifestylers - there's a dream vintage caravan for everyone.

Over 350 beautiful and inspirational photos sit alongside practical tips on restoring, upcycling, decorating and styling the small spaces of your dreams - whether you own a caravan, beach hut, shepherd's hut or even a shed - satisfying the desire to see inside other people's spaces and take inspiration from the small but perfectly formed spaces they have created.
This book will take us on John Serro's journey from producing the first 16' Scotty Pup trailer in 1956 to the more popular 18' HiLander produced in the 60's and 70's. Because Scotty Trailers were not produced on an assembly line, just like the Americans who bought them, no two are exactly alike. The Scotty line, while fairly extensive (ranging from teardrops to fully self-contained 18' models), each were simple in design, most sporting the iconic aqua and white paint scheme, and all stamped with the Scotty Pup logo. Vintage travel trailers have never been more popular with the demographic evolving drastically to a younger, more affluent group of people. And while Airstreams seem to be the shiny star of the day, the Serro Scotty trailers were always right there barking up the same vintage tree. Not only are Scotty Trailers quintessentially retro, they are lightweight, very affordable and easy to restore, and accessible to everyone!
A tribute to the retro style and history of the American trailer traces its evolution from the utilitarian covered wagon to the depression-era "Hammer Blows," noting the contributions of such factors as Lucy and Desi Arnaz's Long, Long Trailer trip, Bing Crosby's Blue Skies Trailer Village, and the Tin Can Tourists group. 12,000 first printing.

Atomic Ranch is an in-depth exploration of post-World War II residential architecture in America. Mid-century ranches (1946-1970) range from the decidedly modern gable-roofed Joseph Eichler tracts in the San Francisco Bay area and butterfly wing houses in Palm Springs, Florida, to the unassuming brick or stucco L-shaped ranches and split-levels so common throughout the United States. Authors Michelle Gringeri-Brown and Jim Brown, founders and publishers of the popular quarterly Atomic Ranch magazine, extol the virtues of the tract, split-level, rambler home and its many unique qualities: private front facades, open floor plans, secluded bedroom wings, walls of glass, and an easy-living lifestyle. From updated homes with high-end Italian kitchens, terrazzo floors, and modern furniture to affordable homeowner renovations with eclectic thrift-store furnishings, Atomic Ranch presents twenty-five homes showcasing inspiring examples of stylish living through beautiful color photographs, including before and after shots, design-tip sidebars, and a thorough resource index.Atomic Ranch reveals: Hallmarks of the ranch style Inspiring original ranch homes Ranch house transformations and makeovers Preservation of mid-century neighborhoods Adding personality to a ranch home Yards and landscaping Plus, a helpful resource section and index!
