We found out about Robin and her sweet studio through an interview over at Re-nest where she describes her average day. We love that rather than going off to find a bigger home with a place for her hair salon [5] she made one to fit her home and her existing life. After buying the 1964 Kenskill Rambler, Carlisle and her husband set about fixing the trailer and remodeling [6] it into a thing of beauty. Badly in need of repairs, new walls, floors and even windows, the couple gutted the trailer and rebuilt it to fit the needs of a studio.

So, out went the old fridge and other furniture, out went the old paneling in a sorry state of degradation, and out when the floor! Th trailer was updated with new paneling, new cabinets, new tile accents, a vintage dresser [7], a hair washing sink, and a salon chair — plus a ton of chic decor to lend the place a feminine quality that inspires beauty.

Carlisle [8] thinks of her new studio as an “enchanted oasis, of beauty and calm”. Outside, the charming little trailer [9] sits next to a custom built deck that Robin’s husband designed. In the summer they hope to have bands play and share their creation with friends.
