Tiny Home for Holiday or Guest House With a Courtyard (Part 3)

Tiny Home for Holiday or Guest House With a Courtyard (Part 3)

Hello again with my tiny home design for holiday or could be guest house which completed with semi-private garden of courtyard in the middle and covered with glass panel.

You can check out my 2 previous posts, part 1 and part 2 for the drawings process or you can take a look at the colored floor plan and exterior view of the tiny home with the courtyard that I presenting again to remind you all.

Picture9

I have done some interior sketches for the second area of bedroom and the courtyard. I really wanted the courtyard to be exposed to the outside and bring outside into the inside. It’s a great feeling while you’re sitting around and chit-chat with your love ones or having a peaceful bath time. and at the night, you can watch the stars sparkling in the sky, romantic isn’t?

Picture13

Even when you were sitting in the breakfast bar, in the dinning banquette, in the bedroom or in the kitchen, you still can enjoy the sky view because the room was only 3 meters long and the glass windows goes all the way up to the ceiling and makes it possible to get the sky view clearly.

Picture12

I have also done a coloring on the kitchen and dinning area. This might describe the color palette I wish to have in the main area interior. I gave white, blue and grey palette for kitchen and dining area where you can see from the colored floor plan. But from the interior perspective, I was able to show more than just color palette, but also texture and pattern.

Picture10

I try to mix the texture, color and pattern together but still keep simple and inline to one another. I used lines for pattern (zig zag, straight and crossing lines) to match the wooden floor and ceiling. and for the texture, I gave a little rustic look on the breakfast bar and the sitting nook; gives the natural feeling. So I can go back to the first concept of private garden which become semi private because of the glass roof.

 

Picture11

I still include my progress on my tiny home design sketches on Party Paint Friday. It is a motivating way to finish every drawings you started in your head.

Well, for final post on this tiny home with a courtyard design, I will complete it with the courtyard sketches in pencil and colored pencil and also the colored bedroom interior. Hope I can finish it soon. So I can start with another new fun project.

 

Creative and always creative!

See you!

Style Your Desk With White

I know I have posted so many colors as an accent to style your desk in daily color mood, from black, blue, yellow, green, red, purple to pink. But I couldn’t help myself to style my desk with another color, which is white. Salute to white!

Style Your Desk With White

White – Be purely sophisticated

I know I have posted so many colors as an accent to style your desk in daily color mood, from black, blue, yellow, green, red, purple to pink. But I couldn’t help myself to style my desk with another color, which is white.

As on all my previous post on style your desk, I keep reminding you to use 60-30-10 rule. And for this white color styling, I use 60% dominant color of grey (the wall), the 30% secondary color of white (table, wall shelve, all decorations, etc) and the 10% accent of black (the blackboard). Since the grey wall is not solid but combination of white and black washed, so basically 90% of dominant and secondary color became white and the accent color became black (mainly the blackboard).

Picture23

I still did not change any main items like all other color styling, but the look now have changed because of the color proportion. I ode this to white as the most natural and easiest color to work with. And the best thing from white is that it looks sophisticated, pure up scale and shows that the owner must be a clean person! Salute to white!

So, I have shown you 8 different colors accent that even though only takes a view small items to make it stand out, the accent color really give each color-style a different personality, don’t you think? Now, it is your turn to style your desk according to your color mood.

If you have a neutral color or pattern for the 60% dominant color, it would be easy to incorporate it with another color or pattern. Neutral color can be white, ivory, grey, black, soft cream, very light yellow, etc. For pattern, a light color pattern with not much variation, like my wallpaper, also pattern without color that is more to texture, and so on.

I used more like monochrome color for both my dominant and secondary color, so it is easy for me to give an accent to another color that I want to be pop up. Look for yellow things in your home that can be used as an accent. It can be yellow photo frame, yellow wall organizer, yellow journal, any other yellow things you have.

STYLE YOUR DESK WITH DAILY COLOR MOOD- BLACK

Style your desk with daily color mood – black. To make something pop up, use the 30-60-10 Rule

STYLE YOUR DESK WITH DAILY COLOR MOOD- BLACK

Black Monday – it’s time to get serious!

For me, in order to do something, I need enough space and a mood. Since my activity is more to crafting, drawing, writing, so I need a descent table that big enough for my working area. And to bring up the mood, I need a good atmosphere to work. That can be achieved with the easiest way by styling your desk.

I love white color, looking clean and expensive, very sophisticated. Also, it goes with any color. So, I have this working white desk. It’s like a blank canvas. You can style it in any color. Since today it’s Monday, im going to style it with the color black. it looks serious and Monday is the first day of the week. It will determine the rest of the week. So, get serious. Let’s style your desk with daily color mood – black.

Basically I have some things that I love and need very much that I want it to be in my desk all the time. That things are my white laptop, my inspiring words decoration, my lovely white roses, my pencils, etc. So all of that will stay while the rest will be the element of decoration, it can come and go, just like the mood.

Picture1

To make something pop up, use the 30-60-10 Rule (from HGTV tips), 60% of a dominant color, 30% of a secondary color, 10% of an accent color. 60% of a more neutral color, you need a blank canvas actually. 10% accent for the pop up thing or color that you want. 30% of complimentary color which would not overshadow the accent, yet not too neutral and become the 60%.

See, on my setting, the 60% dominant color is grey looking (the wall), the 30% secondary color is white (table, wall shelve and everything) and the 10% accent is black (here and there, black things).

Picture2

It does not have to be masculine with black. But black can be powerful feminine. Give some elements that will soften the color black. The white roses, polka dots round bag, surely soften the color black.

So, do you like the style? Now, it’s your time to try style your desk with daily color mood – black. It’s time to get serious, gals!

Creative black Monday!

See you on Tuesday!

DECOR WITH DIY INSPIRING WORDS

Decor with inspiring words at home is one of the cheapest thing . You can do it yourself by using cheap materials and the only tool is only your hand.

DECOR WITH DIY INSPIRING WORDS

Decor with inspiring words at home is one of the cheapest thing . You can do it yourself by using cheap materials and the only tool is only your hand. Of course you need a good hand writing skill, but you can exercise it on papers before you write it for the decoration.

In order to create the writing quotes decoration, you can use blackboard, canvas, wooden board, photo frame, or any other media. Find an inspiring words online or create it to inspire yourself or your family. Write it down first on a piece of paper, before you do the real deal. To decor with diy inspiring words, try to combine:

  1. Different types of font

  2. Different sizes of wording

  3. Find the best composition

  4. And at last, give some accent decoration, but don’t do it too much, just enough to flatter the wordings.

  • Types of font usually accentuate the category of the quotes or the meaning of the words. Like for example, I wrote a quote about work, so I use more formal and strong fonts on the “Great work…” and mixed it with softer and less formal fonts on the “…comes from a passion”.

  • The size of the words will emphasize the word itself. So, bigger size will emphasize the word more. That’s what we called “proportion“.

  • The composition will be the structure of the entire quotes writings. It divides or unites the words. My quote writing below is using 1:3 composition. Great work : comes from a : passion. So the entire writings was divided into 3, because what I want to emphasize are the words “great work” and “passion”.

  • Accent decoration I used was only dots and free-hand lines. It flattered the word’s composition and emphasize the word.

Picture2

Now, it’s time for you to try it! To decor with diy inspiring words and inspires yourself everyday!

Be creatively inspired!

See you soon!

CREATE YOUR OWN HOME OFFICE IN A TINY AWKWARD SPACE INSIDE YOUR HOUSE VOL.3 – Home Interior

create your own home office in a tiny awkward space inside your house.
A corner, actually has a potential space for an emergency home office.

CREATE YOUR OWN HOME OFFICE IN A TINY AWKWARD SPACE INSIDE YOUR HOUSE VOL.3 – Home Interior

This is my third post about creating a home office in a tiny awkward space in a house.  If you haven’t read the 2 first posts, then you need to take a look at it, you may get inspired! In that 2 each posts I have shown a sketch of a common setting of an awkward and tiny space we usually find inside a house and have been changed into a small home office.

First, was by the wall railing to the staircase downstairs, second was a space under the staircase and this last space was in a corner. Yup, a corner!

A corner somewhere in your house maybe have a very good potential to become a cozy little home office and you just don’t realize it. Now you may need to carefully seek for that corner space. Because once you find it, you can easily change the space to be more functional and meaningful than before, by creating a home office. Sometimes you need a little bit interior works to do or sometimes you just pull in a little table and a little chair, decor it a bit and then you got yourself a brand new space, a home office!

For that I gave you 2 illustrations, each one is a corner somewhere in a house that sometimes it’s only used as a space for a decoration purposes, like maybe a space for a big decorated vase, a decorated end table, a feature wall just to make the corner felt less awkward, and so on.

1. A corner in a large room

Usually a big room have one or more corners that you need to fill in with something that tie in with the rest of the room to make it less awkward. For that purpose, more often people just put a big nice chair, a standing lamp or a statement decoration. Or the worse is sometimes you just left it empty! And that what makes a room or a corner felt cold.

So, below I gave sketch of a little but cozy home office in a corner somewhere. Just need a small table and a chain, then you just create your own home office in a tiny awkward space inside your house

home off 3
2. A corner in a transition room.

This corner usually left with decorating purposes only too. While actually has a potential space for an emergency home office. And maybe if you feel cozy enough, you may want to make it as a fixed home office.

Take a narrow but a tall practical table and chair and a standing lamp, set it in a stylish way. You won’t believe the result. Look at my sketch! You will feel like you are sitting in some industrial cafe somewhere in the town.

I hope my 3 posts on how to create your own home office in a tiny awkward space inside your house will inspire you all. I do really wish that you can make one based on my guidance from my posts.

So, if you like one or more of my posts, please don’t hasitate to follow my blog, I still have more and more ideas that will inspire and help you to create one for your own.

Make it creative!

CREATE YOUR OWN HOME OFFICE IN A TINY AWKWARD SPACE INSIDE YOUR HOUSE VOL.2 – Home Interior

To create your own home office in a tiny akward space inside your house .
This is the little space commonly found under a staircase.

CREATE YOUR OWN HOME OFFICE IN A TINY AWKWARD SPACE INSIDE YOUR HOUSE VOL.2 – Home Interior

On my last post, i gave a setting of the awkward and tiny space we usually find inside a house and change it into a small home office space. So on this post i showed you another example to create your own home office in a tiny akward space inside your house .

This is the little space commonly found under a staircase. And the first thing that people does is just simply close it all the way up as a storage cabinet. Well, you can install a little cabinet on one side but then squeeze in a table or a wood panel on the other side and you will got yourself a little home office. See the sketch i made below, it’s simple but very functional.

home off 2

With this arrangement, you can do your work and have plenty of storage for your office supply. Before that, it’s only an empty space under the staircase or a storage cabinet, but once you put in a table and a chair, it’s suddenly changed it’s function to be more useful and alive.

At last, you can style your home office in a way you like and inspiring. But always remember to find a way to relate it to the rest of the rooms in your home. Maybe from the color tone or the pattern.

So, next post I still got some more idea of how to create your own home office in a tiny akward space inside your house. I will get into it once i finished my sketches.

See you soon!

Think creative!

CREATE YOUR OWN HOME OFFICE IN A TINY AWKWARD SPACE INSIDE YOUR HOUSE VOL.1 – Home Interior

Here’s what you can do to create your own home office in a tiny awkward space inside your house.

CREATE YOUR OWN HOME OFFICE IN A TINY AWKWARD SPACE INSIDE YOUR HOUSE VOL.1 – Home Interior

Do you need a home office? Well, no need a grand office table, just at least a decent table and a chair where you can read and write or open your laptop.

And do you have an awkward space inside your house that is quite tiny that you don’t know what to do with it?

I have some solutions for two of your problems above. You can make use of the awkward space into a nice sanctuary of yours and the tiny space into a functional space. Both problems become two advantages.

Since i dont know what kind of awkward and tiny space you got in your house, so i made some common settings that we ussually find.

First setting is the little space we find by the staircase on the second floor.

Usually people only put a big vase of plant or just leave it empty. But actually it’s a potential space for mini office. And the good thing is when you work at second floor, you still aware of what happening downstair through the void.

Here’s what you can do to create your own home office in a tiny awkward space inside your house. You can add a simple hanging wood panel to serve as a table. The panel can be built into the railing wall. On top of the wall you can add smaller wood panel to hold all your books. Then find a confy chair to complete your home office. You can also hang a  wall organizer or a board to suite your working needs. Below sketch may described more for this first setting.

home off 1

There you can see that it takes only a tiny space where you can squeeze in your home office and change the awkward space becomes meaningful for you.

I still have several settings in my mind to create your own home office in a tiny awkward space inside your house, but i haven’t prepare the sketches. So, i will show it to you on my next post.

See you very soon!

Always be creative!
