This stylish 248-square-foot house certainly brings its own personality to the tiny house movement. Moroccan and Indian design elements define the tiny space, and the designer uses a first-person narrative to describe its features, saying “I feature five distinct areas albeit small, a galley kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, office and living room spaces that are affectionately referred to as Savor, Soak, Slumber, Study and Sit.” Built on a 24-foot-long iron Eagle trailer, the designer takes a fairly standard floor plan and accents it with bright jewel toned features, decorative sari fabrics, seat cushions and art, along with intricate carved wood pieces. Even if the style doesn’t jive with you, it shows how to transform a small space into a soulful sanctuary.
Made in Portland, Oregon this tiny house is a collaboration effort between Niche Consulting and Small Home Consulting. Meant for on grid urban or off-grid living, the Lilypad knows its purpose in either setting, and that is to bring renewable and sustainable living to more people in order to help the planet. In fact, this design is a tiny extension of Lilypad Planet’s comprehensive wellness business model focusing on a variety of other areas, including vertical gardens, “gentle” living, and pet care that includes aromatherapy and Reiki treatment for ailing animals.
Following along with the first-person narrative, their website features an “Ask Lilypad” page where you can write in with questions they might have about the tiny space or any other elements of life you might be pondering. They call these “love notes”. Although eccentric, we can’t help but admire their intimate marketing approach. If you’re interested in learning more about Lilypad Planet, visit their website.
