(Bar in the lounge)Something I learned in College Theater, and stand a firm believer in is the rule of set dressing "If you want to make a small space seem larger than it is, leave well placed 'open areas'." ( In short, Less is More).
Let me just say I love my tiny house, (I'd provably love it more if it had a bathroom) But I love its proportions, I love how easy it is to clean and how each piece I've lugged and hauled out to the house fits as if it were meant to be there in its exact spot. Alas at some point you WILL run out of room, and then your charming little space becomes cramped... Thus far I've done pretty well with having just the right amount of junk around the house, all the bordering its style somewhere between Movie Set/ Muesuem Exhibit/ and Home.
If you'll remember I got this awesome portable bar I picked up in Kansas, we'll I've had the darnedest time trying to find a spot for it! I set it up in the lounge, in the spot I had bought it for. However in order to fully access the back of the bar it PRACTICALLY had to be in the middle of the room! So we tried other spots in the house...
(Apparently I deleted the damn picture. But it didn't look good in the kitchen either.)
So after unpacking and rolling the bar all over the house, posing for various pictures, and swearing "We just need another room to solely dedicate to the bar..." I finally found a spot custom tailored for the bar!
