What if your wallpaper provided power for your house? Working in collaboration with Brooklyn’s Flavor Paper , UM Project just unveiled an amazing line of conductive wallpaper that displays embedded circuitry instead of hiding it in your walls. The coolest part is that the funky wall panels rely on human touch to complete each circuit, allowing you switch on your lights and appliances in a whole new way. Related:Light Up Your Walls with Mestyle’s LED-Embedded Wallpaper The wall panels feature conductive, water-based ink circuits connected to metal strips and copper dots. One simple touch completes each circuit, turning connected electronics on or off. The wall coverings combine 2D and 3D elements to create one very unique design feature for homes or offices. The conductive wallpaper was recently showcased at the collective design fair during a NYCxDESIGN event. Although just a conceptual design at the moment, the innovative product could send some serious waves through the world of wall decor. + UM Project Conductive Wallpaper Via Uncrate Photography by Francis Dzikowski/OTTO

Although some may think that tiny home design is a relatively new concept, trailer living has been around almost since the dawn of time, or at least since the creation of the iconic Airstream . For those looking to go back to the good old days of simple living, El Cosmico Trailer Park located in Marfa, Texas, is home to 11 restored vintage trailers that have been painstakingly revamped back to their heyday state of “nomadic recreation.” El Cosmico Park is a colorful trailer community that sits in the desert plains of Marfa , an art-loving community known for its incredible landscape. The vintage trailers have been restored to their original glory as much as possible. Most have marine-varnished birch interiors and no-frills amenities geared to those looking for a respite from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Related: The Vintages boasts 15 painstakingly restored trailers in one retro park The 11 vintage trailers – that are available to rent throughout the year – come in a variety of shapes and sizes, all with their own unique character. The 42-feet Imperial Mansion, for example, has its own bathroom and a full kitchen. Its lovely wooden deck is perfect for a smokey bbq dinner under the stars. Little Pinky, on the other hand is a quaint, she shed-esque 13-feet trailer that also comes with a sweet little deck, but shares an outdoor toilet and shower with her neighbor, Amigo. Each trailer has the basic equipment for cooking, dining, sleeping, bathing, etc., and most have open-air decks. All of the trailers are also equipped with heating and cooling for year-round stays. However, in true off-grid fashion, there is limited Internet, which is only available in the lobby. For those looking to go a bit more rustic, the camp also offers yurts and teepees . + El Cosmico Trailer Park Images via El Cosmico Trailer Park
