Help Us Design Our Sprinter Van Conversion! Here's Our Mood Board...

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.

Beautiful Outdoor Spaces: Kelly Golightly's Terrace

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.

Sex And The City Style | Kelly Golightly

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…

40 Hours of Freedom Sprinter Van Conversion

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 
Marble-looking Quartz

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:
Tiffany blue

Butcher block
Olive wood

Stainless steel
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!

p.s. Fred Baby is thankfully SO good with renderings. Remember this one?
