You’ve done all the boring admin stages when it comes to launching your glamping business; you’ve completed all the hard graft and the heavy lifting… now for the fun bit, making your dome your own!
But, where do you start? Some of us love nothing more than spending hours on a Sunday night scrolling through Pinterest and creating mood boards, getting the creative juices flowing and pretending we’re the next finalists on Interior Design Masters. However, for some of us, interior styling can be a bit of a minefield.
The team at TruDomes have seen many glamping businesses launch and go on to enjoy great success, and they have all had different styles and different approaches to the design of their dome. What’s most important, and something that you should first ask yourself, is what do you stand for and who is your customer? That way, you can really pin down the right interior style for you and your guests.
We’ve put together our top 5 interior trends, to give you a few ideas to think on if you are wondering how to dress your dome!

Think shady areas, leafy getaways and tropical breezes in a far-flung destination across the globe in times gone by. Combine warm beige shades and soft green hues with bold animal print and exotic plants. Be bold with brass and gold metal accents, and add some rattan furniture to the mix to bring the whole theme to life. White, floaty or linen fabrics and bedding will emulate the much-needed mosquito nets and old battered suitcases, as storage or side tables, will nod towards travel.
To finish off the look, add some eccentric accessories such as an elephant or monkey lamp or even some bamboo. The great thing about this trend is that you can pick up some amazing vintage pieces in your local charity shop or car boot sale!
More is definitely more when it comes to this trend, and it’s one that we believe is here to stay. Since lockdown, people have been spending more time at home, and have become sick of beige walls and grey everything. Minimal is out and maximal is in. How to achieve it? It’s quite simple, embrace patterns, clash as much as you like and engage your creative flair!
Blend eclectic patterns with different prints by finding one or two complementing tones to bring it all together. Create playful layers and use plenty of textures as well as patterns, with a few wacky accessories to create that bohemian, art studio feel.
This is a great one if the location of your glamping business happens to be by the seaside! Nautical has always been a strong theme year on year, it’s a classic and classics never go out of style. Take inspiration from the Hamptons and keep it chic by blending various shades of blue with crisp white, and accessorise with nautical features such as ropes, ship wheels, sea grass baskets, blue stripes and more.
Our customers at Grove Farm Glamping are a great example of how to perfect this trend. Think muted earthy tones; olive green and clay pink. Accessorise with pampas leaves (very much ‘in’ this year) and brass metal work. Many businesses are making steps to becoming more sustainable, and this theme really lends itself to sustainable furniture. Grove Farm Glamping got really creative with their dome, and even made their kitchen from reclaimed wood, by using the wood from our TruDomes box packaging – how inventive!

Hands up if you’ve dreamed about living in a big country farmhouse in a picturesque rural Cotswolds village without a care in the world? This is what were going for here. Think about bringing the rustic outside in – make a log burner with plenty of logs central to the space, with lots of unfinished wood for the furniture to give the space an authentic vibe. You could even add some equestrian and rural sports inspired accessories to finish the look.
We’d love to hear from you if you’ve been inspired by any of these top interior trends, and do let us know if you have any ideas that you would like to share with us on how to dress your glamping dome!
