Climb aboard an idyllic, masterfully built tiny home with a fabulous kitchen

If anyone has made the construction of tiny homes on wheels an art form, it is the French/Norwegian designer Abel Zimmerman Zyl, founder and owner of Zyl Vardos. The company specializes in kooky, creative caravans that seem to have sailed off of the pages of a book of Grimm’s fairy tales, except along the way they had to squeeze through a hallway filled with funhouse mirrors.
Yes, these are oddly shaped Hobbit homes, some of them with eclectic, cathedral ceilings, disorienting roof lines and mosaic shingling that give the impression the home has just survived a wild ocean crossing — and done so in grand style. Zyl, at times, seems to have little use for straight lines. But the end results are unarguably gorgeous. “My crew is magic!” Zyl boasts on his website. “May your daydreams become real.”

Check out what Zyl calls the Dewdrop, a simple enough structure, but one that is representational of what the master builder can do.
The name Vardos is the Romany word for caravan, Zyl explains on his website. The Dewdrop is a classic in the caravan fashion: It is very small, compact, elegant and made for the open road. Wouldn’t it also fit in perfectly if parked for the summer at the local renaissance festival?
