In 2015 we bought an old Marshall Vintage Caravan and set about transforming it into a beautiful boho boudoir. Three months later the make-over was complete, with velvet furnishings, pom pom fringed curtains and a WHOLE lot of gypsy bling.
We painted over the white plastic interior using Annie Sloan Chalk paint, then a lot of the wax to seal the paint. https://www.anniesloan.com. This drastically changed the feel of the inside space. We had bespoke artwork painted on the cupboard doors by Cardiff based Graffiti Artist Bryce Davies - http://www.peacefulprogress.co.uk/. This framed the original mirrors.

We were besotted, we had initially thought she would be hired out for weddings, photoshoots, a spot of glamping maybe. All of these have since happened, but when we saw her in all her glory we had the crazy idea that she could be a Glitter Parlour at festivals (obviously!) and 'Salon Mirela was born!
We got Rachel a fantastic performance artist on board -
Rachel created the character Crystal O'Connor, a gypsy queen with a love of all things shiny who travelled around in Mirela with her family spreading Glitter love! We have since headed to festivals around the UK including Greenman, Camp Bestival & Wilderness. Here are a few shots of the mayhem..Some lovely ones from http://agahosking.com/
As well as our summer festival tour Mirela is available with or without Glitter Artists for hire for private parties, photo shoots or just to party in on your driveway! Mirela makes an excellent addition to a festival style wedding....You know how at a house party the place to be is always the kitchen? At a wedding the place to be at the party is the Mirela Caravan. Here are a couple of snaps of recent wedding shenanigans! Photographs by http://www.mariafarrelly.com/
