Pinterest has become my go-to place for everything nowadays. I especially love scrawling through and oohing and aahing over the renovations that people do on their RV’s. I’m in complete and utter awe because I don’t have a CREATIVE BONE in my body.
Ask Frank and he’ll tell you that he is much more creative than I am, but together we won’t be called anytime soon for a HGTV show. I have a friend who has that gene and I love visiting her home because it’s so beautiful and inviting. She understands color schemes and knows how to put them together.
Me – NOT SO MUCH!
I always tell her if we decided to settle down in a house again, she has to decorate it for me.

10 Ways to Make Your RV Feel More Cozy
1) RV Throw Pillows
I love throw pillows, we had several on our bed back when we had a house. Frank hated them lol, I loved them.
Throw pillows help spruce up any home in my opinion. I could spend hours scrolling fellow RVers on Instagram looking at how cute their RVs are decorated, and they always have super cute throw pillows on their bed or couch.
The pillows that came with our RV got dirty REALLY fast! I needed to find something to cover them up so I jumped on Amazon and found these beautiful camping cushion cover ups.
They make the sofa look so inviting, you just want to go on in and lie down and make yourself at home.
If you need inner cushions, you can find them here.
2) Wall Hanging Signs
Wall hangings can also do a lot to add flavor to your RV interior. Whether you are into country craft or a more modern touch, you can find wall hangings to accentuate your design. They can also add a nice splash of color if things are a bit monotone.
3) Backsplash Decor
Another way to change the look of your RV is to update the back splash. If you’re not very handy, you can very easily update it with a peel and stick wall tile. Just changing the color scheme is in your RV can transform it into a home.
This is what can be done IF you have that creative gene! This is a renovated RV tour with Eric and Katie from Mountain Modern Life. Isn’t it beautiful???
4) Camping Coasters
5) Outdoor Sign With Your Name On It
I love taking a walk around the campground and looking at all the RV custom personalized signs that people have outside, they are so cute and give you another opportunity to get the name of whoever lives in the camper. I have a horrible habit of forgetting people’s names 5 seconds after they’ve told me. So them having that sign really helps to meet new people.
6) Flameless Candles
I found these flameless candles last Christmas, I love ‘lighting’ them at night, they create a beautiful homey feel. You can set a timer for the certain number of hours you want the candles on, this helps me to never forget to turn them off.
7) RV Kids' Bedroom Decor
The one thing I don’t love about living in an RV is that my 8-year-old daughter doesn’t have a room of her own to decorate.
She loves nothing more than to decorate her room with anything she can – pipe cleaners, zoob pieces, artwork but her brother only lets her do so much because well he’s a boy and not so fond of ………pink.
She can, however, decorate her bunk any way she wants!. We found these beautiful floral wall decals that she could put on her wall, they transform her side of the room into a little girls room.
So one side of the room we have a pink owl duvet set covered in stuffed animals and on the other side we have a camouflage bedset typical for a 9-year-old boy!
Both kids are happy = a happy mom!
8) RV Bathroom Decor
RV bathrooms are small so they do not take too much to decorate. Brightly colored towels like these ones help to take your bathroom from dark to airy and bright.
Updating the color of your bathmat is another great way to decorate your RV bathroom. A brightly colored shower curtain will do the same.
9) RV Kitchen Decor
Depending on the size of your RV kitchen, it’s pretty easy to decorate it and make it more homey. Backsplash is a great way to do this, of course, a camping set of tea towels will always brighten up your kitchen.
Hanging planters in your RV is another great way to make your house on wheels more homey, it’s easy enough to take the planters down for travel day.
10) Outside RV Living
Outside lighting makes a huge difference in any camper setup. LED lights are great for adding color and visibility at night. They also don’t use very much electricity if you are boondocking.
I’m obsessed with these cute little outdoor lights, they are so adorable and fit onto your awning. They have a number of different designs, but these little campers are my favorite!
10) Outdoor Furniture
Your outdoor furniture can make a huge difference when you are trying to decorate your RV and its surroundings to improve your RV life.
There is so much to choose from with lightweight folding chairs and tables. You can take your time and have fun with it. Make your furniture both functional AND beautiful.
Pretty soon people will be walking by to look at YOUR setup. We saw people in an old school bus with hooks they had made hanging off the back of the bus with swing chairs attached. Yes Please!
We had these chairs in the beginning of our RV journey and LOVED them, however we soon realized they weren’t practical for us with 2 adults and 2 kids.
The sun shade worked well for us because we work outside while the kids are playing. We received so many compliments on these chairs and the color helped to brighten up the outdoor space.
