And the search for a new rental apartment begins. Again. Keep telling myself everything happens for a reason…

How adorable is this super stylish caravan?
The gorgeous Carrie is an Australian 1950s Castle caravan bought on eBay by stylist Jane Frosh and collected from beachside Wollongong. She now lives in Jane’s garden in Wentworth Falls NSW, providing both a handy guestroom and a photoshoot prop.
“We totally gutted and refitted her,” says Jane. “The exterior is painted Black Fox by Taubmans and the cupboards inside are Dulux French Pink. The couches convert to a fabulous double futon, so it is awesome for guests!” Jane’s next plan is my favourite bit: to install a claw foot bath under the tree. Imagine taking a bath under the stars!
The dream doesn’t stop there though: “How awesome would it be for an entire beachside caravan park to be styled with gorgeous retro vans? Outdoor showers and baths, fire pits, communal veggie gardens, a hand built pizza oven, chooks, all set on rolling green pastures by the beach. That is a project I would love to do!”
Now we just need to persuade Jane to do it. I’d be there in a flash!
Jane is a stylist for show.pony and has a cool blog here, where you can read more about the Carrie refurb.
Congratulations to Henry Wilson, winner of the Bombay Sapphire Design Discovery Award last night!
