In search of a bold, modern tiny house which will catch your eye from the moment you see it? The Juniper from Mustard Seed Tiny Homes is sure to intrigue you.
The home’s bright red door, unusual and distinctive shape, and emphasis on rectangles immediately command attention.
As is standard on Mustard Seed Tiny Homes’ creations, the exterior siding is described as “LP lap siding accent upper with smooth HD board and batten lower.” While the light gray and tan look great, you can choose any colors you prefer.
This is a door that makes you intensely curious about what lies beyond.
The little shelf below the window set in the door is cute, but I’m not sure what it could be used for.
A little porch light is built in next to the door.
The angles of the home have an artistic look to them.
The back has a unique “T” shape.
An angled roof helps precipitation to slide off the top.
Like the outside of the tiny house, its interior also features a bold, surprising color scheme. But it is not the one that you would expect given the colors selected for the exterior.
Instead of tan or red, the emphasis is on dark, midnight blue.
As expected given the shape of the home’s roof, there are two separate lofts across from each other with the kitchen situated in the middle on the ground floor. A set of stairs leads up to one, with a ladder leading up to the other.
By avoiding the placement of a railing with the smaller loft, the light from upstairs is allowed to enter the living area downstairs unobstructed.
The farmhouse sink stands out thanks to its contrast with the dark blue cabinets. The dark blue really is a bold color choice. Like many other design choices by Mustard Seed Tiny Homes, I think it’s one that is underutilized overall by tiny house builders.
A two burner stove is included under the general Features list for the home. This appears to be a four burner stove, which I assume is an optional upgrade.
The view looking down into the sink shows you how much space you will have to do your dishes. It also confirms that we are indeed looking at a four-burner stove top rather than a two-burner one.
Were you standing directly in front of the ladder which heads up to the loft, you would probably assume that there was a full set of cabinets underneath. But actually, what is concealed beneath is the fridge and freezer, along with a little cabinet space overhead.
What a clever spot!
There is a set of cabinets forming the railing between the loft and the main living space. It is smart to make use of this space, but it would be pretty difficult to reach the cabinets. For that reason, they are more useful for permanent decor than items you would need to get at on a regular basis.
There is some unique wall art bringing color and interest to the loft space.
Here’s where you can place your mattress. As you can see, there is storage space underneath the bed on every side.
The other loft to be used for another bed, or could fill a completely different function (storage, a home office, etc.).
A lighter color of blue closer to teal has been selected for the bathroom vanity.
It appears that the shower tiles are a similar color.
They may be just a shade lighter.
You can see that the bathroom is located adjacent to the kitchen.
There is a lot of storage space in this tiny house. And some of it is really clever …
Bet you didn’t think anything could be stored in that corner, did you? But the top opens up! This is tiny house design at its best. Every inch of space is used. Nothing goes to waste.
The cabinets under the steps provide an abundance of space.
The open cabinets can store practical items, or they can be used for décor.
Sooo much storage space!
It’s well worth appreciating from all sides.
Finally, a photo which shows the living room! The couch is across from that line of open cabinets underneath the extended countertop. The height of the countertop looks to be ideal for setting up a television screen at approximately eye level. The shelves underneath could be perfect for your Blu-ray or DVD player, console, and so forth.
Such a cozy spot to do some binge-watching.
The showerhead is installed right up near the ceiling—ideal for even a tall user.
A flush toilet is waiting in the bathroom next to the shower. Another nice feature is the full-length mirror on the bathroom door.
The mirror takes up nearly the entirety of the door, and makes the bathroom seem larger than it is.
The shower stall looks large enough to accommodate most people comfortably. The glass door makes for easy cleaning.
