Exciting news! We are full steam ahead on getting Sally Tomato all gussied up and ready for his close-up! We have a drop-off date of September 17th in Denver and a pick-up date of October 15th. That is SO soon and SO fast! While we’re thrilled we’ll be able to ride Sally ride much sooner than expected, it also means we need to make interior design decisions MUCH faster. Will you help us? Here’s our mood board…
Sprinter Van Interior Design
As you can see, we want light, white, bright and airy with touches of “Golightly blue.” What is Golightly blue? The same color blue you see in the Kelly Golightly logo at the top of this page. Almost Tiffany blue, but not exactly.
If you look at my Instagram lately, I’m clearly inspired by this color palette of blue and white, such as with the door in the above photo and our terrace here (designed by Christopher Kennedy). It’s a classic combo we won’t tire of either.
I love this shade of blue because it’s both happy yet calm. Since it’s such a small space, it’s important to keep it simple, bright and light. Would you agree?
There are two #vanlife accounts where we’ve been gleaning the most inspiration…
One is Wild by the Mile. Full van tour here.
And the other is 40 Hours of Freedom. Full van tour here.
They both have fresh, modern, light and bright interiors. But there are slight differences.
Want to help us choose?
Here’s the first round of decisions we need to make…
White flat panel
White Shaker style (raised)
*Tiffany blue painted sides when you pull them out?
Blond butcher block
Farmhouse white sink
Stainless steel sink
White subway tile
Aqua subway tile
White tongue-and-groove or Shiplap (note: don’t want to sacrifice height)
White painted ceilings (flat so height isn’t sacrificed)
Bench Seating Fabric:
White cabinetry panel front
Blond wood floors
Ash grey wood floors
So many Qs, so little time! Literally…
What would you pick?
Here’s a rendering that Fred Baby mocked up which shows what we are leaning towards, but we would LOVE your input!
Have you ever done a tiny space design or van conversion?
Even if not, we’d love to know what you think would look and feel best!
Please comment below or over on my Instagram xo!
p.s. Fred Baby is thankfully SO good with renderings. Remember this one?

Ooooohhhh. So exciting!! I love the white and Golightly blue color scheme!!
I thing silver for fixtures, and butcher block countertops would look great! Keep it nutral and light :).
Can’t wait to see how it all turns out. Where will you be taking Sally Tomato??
I have no doubt…whatever you go with will be stunning!!!
The blue and white will be perfect for the light and simple theme you want.
