How to Bring the National Parks Into Your Home

In homage to America’s “best idea” you can hit the road in a bespoke Airstream or deck your walls with Yosemite Sand paint or Bryce Canyon-colored tile. Check out these decorating ideas inspired by the national parks.

Camper Van-Tastic

In honor of the National Park Service centennial, Pendleton and Airstream teamed up and created 100 of the most tricked-out caravans we've ever seen. The 28-foot land yachts feature custom upholstery, bespoke cabinetry and a unique screened rear side hatch for taking in the incredible scenery. Pendleton’s relationship with the parks started even before the first Airstream took to the highways. It was commissioned to provide blankets for the lodges in Yosemite way back in the 1920s.

A Trailer’s Tribute

We love the nods to the rustic architecture of Yosemite’s cabins along with the map of Yellowstone gracing the walls. With this Airstream comes a plethora of exclusive Pendleton goodies such as a forest-scented candle, enamel cowboy cookware and of course, blankets.  

Cuddle Up, Pay Up

Pendleton created items commemorating select national parks including Yosemite, Yellowstone, Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the Grand Canyon. Each design is unique and items include blankets, towels, kitchen accessories and even dog sweaters, leashes, collars, bowls and beds. If you have $115,000 one of these silver beauties can be yours. $1,000 of your scratch goes directly to the National Park Foundation.

Not-So-Old Paint

America's Colors is a line of paints from Benjamin Moore. Inspired by our great outdoors, they carry the names of some of our most popular parks like Yosemite Sand and Glacier White. This craftsman style kitchen features their Acadia White on its doors and trim.

White Hot

In a nod to the tranquil baths in Hot Springs National Park, Benjamin Moore christened this tint Hot Spring Stones. Featured on this powder room ceiling, it makes us want to relax in a hot bath. 

Hit the Trail

This darker shade called Yosemite Trail by PPG Porter Paints not only accents this dining area’s wall, but it also highlights those attractive windows – and reminds us to go outside more often. 

Hoodoo? You Do

These handmade tiles from Fireclay Tile take their name from the majestic crimson-colored hoodoos of Bryce Canyon. We think it would make for a fabulous backsplash. Plus, we just like saying hoodoo. 

Goodbye, Baby Blue

Also from Fireclay Tile are these dazzling blue tiles dubbed Glacier Bay, a nod to the clear blue hues of those protected glacial waters in Alaska.
