Les Roulottes: Gypsy Wagons for the Garden

Les Roulottes: Gypsy Wagons for the Garden

We're suspending our sense of reality right now and jumping right in to the delusion that we have anywhere to put one of these. However, these gypsy wagons have carried us off on a cloud of fancy, and right now, we're not the least bit concerned about their practicality...

Yes, we know. We have nowhere to put a gypsy wagon. But one day we might have a large backyard! Yes, we know. These may be a bit too expensive for us right now. But one day there might be some disposable income! We're not altogether concerned with the viability of these fantastic wagons, we just love them.

We came across these gypsy wagons via Shelterrific, one of our favorite blogs, and had to pass them along. French artist Jeanne Bayol has restored these wagons and infused them with whimsical, colorful decor that harkens back to nomadic gypsy culture. We can't help but think that these are an inspired substitute for a run of the mill gazebo or, for the truly lucky child, the most ideal playhouse we can imagine. Garden tea parties, an escape with a good book, sitting with a morning cup of coffee--we can think of countless ways that we would enjoy Les Roulottes. Just thinking about it makes us a little bit happier...

There are many beautiful designs--many over the top--to daydream about on Les Verdines, Bayol's website, but beware--music that will start playing after a couple of seconds!
