Tell us a little (or a lot) about your home and the people who live there: My husband and I currently travel in our 35-foot RV with our two cats, Kobe and Duckie, and our dog, McNally.

When we purchased our RV it was outdated and far from our style. Our goal was to transform it into a mountain modern motorhome that would feel more like a cozy cabin vs. an outdated motel room.

We’ve always enjoyed decorating for the holidays, and going tiny didn’t change that.

Describe your home’s style in 5 words or less: Rustic Modern, Earthy, Cozy

What is your favorite room and why? I love how cozy and functional our living area is, despite the lack of square footage. We can snuggle up to watch a movie, pull out the telescoping table to work or eat dinner, and the kitchen is a few steps away!

If you could magically change something about your home, what would it be? While I love our RV, I wouldn’t mind a larger kitchen or higher ceilings that would make it feel more spacious. (Those are the two things I love most about 5th wheels).

What’s the last thing you bought (or found!) for your home? I enjoy browsing local antique shops during our travels and recently picked up a 1920s lithograph I absolutely love!

Any advice for creating a home you love? Rather than purchasing all new decor, try to mix old, new, and handmade. This will give your space some soul and the interesting pieces you collect will give your guests a glimpse into your inner world.
