20 Inspiring Ideas For Minimal Home Living

Tiny Home Project

The common idea most of us have when it comes to living space is that we are quickly running out of it. Rent and land is expensive in areas of vast opportunities and yet there are very creative people who went ahead and took the little space they have and made the most out of it.

We’re talking about smart micro-living where home owners make use of smart, stowable furniture, multi-purpose home fixtures, clever architectural designs or a combo of all three to cut down on the size of homes, without eating into the comforts we have grown accustomed to.

In this post, we will be looking at 20 amazingly tiny houses, some at less than 200 sq ft area, that will make you ask yourself if you really need all that space in your home right now. From studio apartments to vertical houses, these designs showcase the amazing architectural feats that redefine how much space we actually need for comfort living.

    Bennetto Drinking Chocolate

    One Design created packaging for Bennetto Natural Foods flagship product called Bennetto Drinking Chocolate. Targeting the luxury confectionery market and made of cacao source from certified Fairtrade operatives in Peru, Bennetto Drinking Chocolate features stunning illustrations Henrietta Harris that are luxurious and quirky.

    The product needed to deliver many sentiments within a very small space. Also the key message that the chocolate bar is for ‘drinking’ needed to be clear as this is what sets the product apart from its artisan chocolate bar counterparts.

    “Our idea hinges off the cacao origins and we therefore based our design on two exotic Peruvian bird watercolour illustrations, dressed in tea-time attire about to enjoy a warm luxurious cup of hot chocolate, surrounded by a dreamscape of floating cacao leaves, beans and the all important cup of hot chocolate.”

    Bennetto_3.jpg

    One Design’s strategy was to create a point of difference while positioning Bennetto in a contemporary and sophisticated business quadrant. The thought was to deliver an endearing illustration of an off-beat, yet cordial moment, between two very prim and proper exotic Peruvian birds. This level of narrative for such a small package was fresh and exciting territory for this category.

    The modern illustrated birds have just the right balance of quirk and sophistication that makes the product feel adventurous and imaginative. The luxe of the gold foiling elevates the product into a high-end realm allowing it to sit comfortably above its contemporaries while subtly maintaining some of chocolates more traditional qualities. The muted vivid neutrals of the palette give the packaging its quiet confidence that allows it to fly is own flag within the packaging category.
