Bertha's Dining Area, After Makeover:
Finally I have taken some photos of Bertha, our lovely campervan, so you can see the results of my make over. You can see the external make over here. It's been a slow process, over the past two years, that I've been shifting her away from that hideous beige seventies decor and into something a bit more my taste. Happily it hasn't cost a lot of money, as it was mostly sewing and painting which Paula and I did ourselves. I'm so pleased with how she looks. For me, interior decor seems to do absolutely everything to enhance my mood. When I stay in a place that delights me, I get joy from looking at and being in my surroundings every day. When I don't like the aesthetic I find it really hard not to let it seep into my pores - it definitely influences my spirit. Happily Bertha is now a space I like to be in just to enjoy the aesthetic and find inspiration. By the way I would have liked to paint all the exposed fake wood laminate white, but for some reason Paula is resisting. Maybe one day...
