Blogger Sarah Schneider turned an old Airstream into a beautifully decorated haven for her whole family.
As a mom to three young kids, blogger Sarah Schneider knows that coordinating family vacations can be a little difficult, to say the least. With that in mind, Sarah and her husband purchased an Airstream earlier this year in the hopes of turning it into a family-friendly haven. "I wanted a home on wheels, where we will journey and see the country, to feel like home," she writes on her blog, .
Over the past few months, Sarah transformed her Airstream (which she dubbed ), into a gorgeous retreat that her whole family can enjoy. "I wanted it to be comfortable and inspiring, to evoke imagination, adventure, and creativity," she writes. "I wanted it to feel wild and free."
Sarah's Airstream was dark when she purchased it, but she quickly painted everything white, and installed hardwood floors. "I salvaged the original sofa and recovered it in bleachable indoor and outdoor linen," she writes. "The was my inspiration for the interior. I fell in love with the phrase, and the colors, and the term 'wander' began to appear throughout the design."

Sarah uses her sitting area as a dining space, which features a foldout table and . "They add so much pattern, warmth, and texture with the wood legs," Sarah writes. "Their beauty is that they fold out of the way when traveling or when not in use."
Sarah's couch also turns into a full-size bed. "I added lots of layers and ambient lighting," she writes. "I love this space and how all the colors and patterns work together."
"I bought all of the drapes at longer lengths and had them cut down to fit the wraparound windows," Sarah explains. "They provide privacy but also let in beautiful light."
With a tiny kitchen, Sarah needed to make sure every inch was utilized. She used leftover fabric from the drapes for a stove cover, hung a mirror on the wall to add more light, and installed butcher block cabinets and a white octagonal backsplash for texture. "It's amazing how hardware can completely change the look," Sarah writes. "It's like jewelry to your cabinets."
Sarah added for splashes of texture and pattern, while a pop-up Lucite table provides a place to sit. "The table makes for a great place to read, journal, or have a cup of coffee," she writes.
Tucked away at the back of the Airstream is a cozy room with two twin beds. "The room can be for the kids or adults," Sarah writes. "I wanted it to be fitting for both, but it's great for when we travel with the kids ... or when I take it on girls' trips!
"The bedding was fun to coordinate," Sarah told 's blog. "I love that the design of the is reversible, so you can easily get another look for both beds or change it up on just one side."
A tiny bathroom calls for tiny accessories, so Sarah decorated accordingly. "I cut the bath rug down so that it would fit," she explains. "The sink is made out of a old farmhouse bowl."
Also stored in the Wandering Star? Sarah's table linens, lanterns, string lights, candles, throws, rugs and outdoor accesories. "Bringing beauty and comfort to the outdoors while camping is a must," she wites.
"I can't wait to take the Wandering Star traveling across the country," Sarah writes. "If you see us in your town, wave us down! We'd love to give you a tour."
