One Man’s Trash is Another Man’s Trailer

Quirky / Funky

Mondays, for some, even Tuesdays can be a bit daunting and may feel like “the base of the mountain” point in our week.  To lighten up your day, I thought I’d pass along this little architectonic tidbit for your amusement.

What I like most about this design idea is how, on first glance, it appears to be a mobile home junk yard.  After taking a moment, I find the colors, and even the rust, all work as a cohesive unit and add to its likableness and simplicity.  Who knows why the owner of this “caravan castle” imagined the idea to juxtapose one mobile home on top of another.  Who cares?  The main thing is…I don’t have to live here, but it sure is fun to imagine someone else does.  After all, one man’s trash, is another man’s trailer.
