Plants and Paintings in His 3-Bedroom Tiny Home

Mike started to realize he used very little of his larger Portland home and was ready to downsize. His new park model tiny home in Durango has two loft bedrooms and a ground floor bedroom with high ceilings. The bathroom is also incredibly spacious, with a shower you could dance in!

The living room and kitchen flow together, complete with a walk-in pantry, full-sized appliances, and oodles of his artwork on the walls. The plants are the best part! He has a little jungle going on that brings the outside in. What do you think?
