I appreciate quality interior design. I don't believe you have to live in Beverly Hills, The Hamptons or Pacific Heights to create a beautiful space. A garden can grow anywhere, a can of paint costs about twenty bucks, and the internet is free. Inspiration is everywhere.
That being said, I still stay up at night wondering just what in the hell I'm going to make. I know what I want to feel when I open that door to my van and step inside. And, I know what kind of lifestyle I want lead with the help of my van. I know what kind of impression I want to make on those whom I choose to associate with.
I began scouring newsstands, bookstores, websites and catalogues for imagery that turns me on. I am an info junkie. The best thing about the design stage of the process is that it's FREE! And, here are the pictures that I flip through on a daily basis, studying and analyzing. I break them apart and reassemble them in my mind as some sort of Frankenstein's monster, only one that won't be ugly to look at. A friend sent me a link to this truck. I about flipped my lid. But of course, it's too big.
