What do you get when you throw MTV, a rapper, and a mobile home together? Some pretty unique mobile home decorating ideas.
The following images are actual mobile home makeovers created during the filming of MTV’s short-lived show, Trailer Fabulous. Some of the unique mobile home decorating ideas they created are pretty awesome. Some, meh, not so much.
Unique Mobile Home Decorating Ideas: Hollywood Style
The show apparently took the style the family liked most and created the most over-the-top representation possible. They took the classic library, 1950’s retro, and colorful 1970’s style and ran with it.
Classic Library Style
The owners probably liked the classic libraries or smoking rooms you see in mansions so the show created it. Opulent velvet and scrollwork set the stage for a classy traditional look.
Retro Fabulous Mobile Home Makeover
This family obviously liked the 1950s and 60s. I’ll admit, this is a pretty awesome mobile home makeover. A little over the top never hurt anything!
Hunting Cabin Style
Older mobile homes are used for hunting and camping cabins all the time in West Virginia. That’s how I was introduced to the older models; they would be permanently set up at campgrounds we visited. This mobile home makeover is another favorite. They created the ultimate hunting cabin:
This is one colorful mobile home! I’m not sure what to call this unique mobile home decorating style. I really like the way they created a small seating arrangement in front of the fireplace. The professional designers always say to keep your furniture off the walls and bunch them together for easy conversation.
Unique Mobile Home Decorating Ideas: Misc Styles
The rest of the pics I found are just one room for each style.
Classic Black Kitchen
The show has been off the air for 12 years so this classic black kitchen was ahead of its time. Kitchens with black and gray cabinets are huge trends right now.
Colorful Southwestern Kitchen
I see both a southwestern style and a nod toward classic dutch decor but I’m going to say this is southwestern. The stenciled cabinetry is unique.
I love simple designs and calm colors. This kitchen has both. Removing the doors from the middle upper cabinets is a great way to open the space up and display pretty stuff.
Unique Bedroom Decorating Ideas
Ready to visit the bedrooms for some unique mobile home decorating ideas?
Bedrooms are fun because they aren’t seen as much as the rest of the home so you can really go wild in any color or style you want.
Classic Black and White
This first bedroom is a very nice. The walls are a matte black and they added dimension and interest with trim. I like it!
This bedroom is very Hollywood glam. Silver and black metallic wallpaper with red accents pair well together when you want glamour.
I like everything about this bedroom. Unique mobile home decorating ideas can be pulled from the most common things. I see similar wall art at Goodwill and flea markets all the time.
Remember, this show was filmed in 2004/2005 and geometric design or bright accent colors weren’t a big decorating trend, yet. The show’s designers certainly had an eye for upcoming decor.
These unique mobile home decorating ideas may be a little over-the-top but they all prove that anything is possible for your mobile home
As always, thank you so much for reading Mobile Home Living!
