Caravan Inspiration

I just received the most fabulous email from Erika at Miko Design in Holland with caravan inspiration for us all. This is so darling for the backyard, your heart will simply swell… Look at these photos! It’s a playhouse for her daughters complete with a kitchen and living room. Awwww.

Don’t you want one for your yard now too? Erika’s daughters are so lucky, can you imagine having something this cool as a child? I made playhouses out of cardboard boxes — I liked to collect them from the sidewalk whenever someone got a new appliance and left their gigantic box on the curb… but a kiddie caravan? Nope, never had one of these. Erika is one cool mommy.

    Ha Alex! If I had a caravan like that as a child I may not have ever left the house, got married, and moved on with life. I would still be in that darn caravan!!! For sure!!!

    This brings back memories! Mine wasn’t a cool looking caravan but I had a great little playhouse with a porch, window, and my dad ran electricity to it. Unfortunately, it wasn’t decorated and just had late 70s early 80s faux wood paneling.
