Lee Rose recreates the cosy and artistic style of a Gypsy Vardo for this week's DIY The Room.

When I think of the Gypsy Vardo I think mostly of texture and space. With less space comes more need for storage like the suitcase table or the thrift store baskets. Tiny accents like sugar skulls and lavender stars add to the fortune teller aire without taking up much space, and lots of bowls act as open storage as well as decor. The hanging chair leaves valuable floor space open and holds comfy patchwork pillows. The rug, curtains, and lampshade finish off the textural circus, and keep the gypsy wagon feeling like a portable home.
