not so serious decor for living

In small and tiny houses, you focus on making spaces more efficient and keeping clutter away. Yet why not have a few items that bring you great joy while living in a smaller place?

It’s time to take a breather and not take this smaller-living and downsizing so seriously. En route to finding “the right” lighting, storage and entertainment, we discovered and proudly present three whimsical items.

Olive oil lamp that throws good light

All you need to have on hand is the olive oil. Long-burning glass jars, wicks and nickel elements may be ordered through Lehman’s store, which sells “simple products for a simple life.” Their largest lamp and starter package costs $34.90 before shipping fees.

This kind of city fire escape definitely adds shelf character, and is somewhat useful too. In these days of “shelfie” snapshots, it struck us as the perfect way to display and share your treasures with others. The shelves cost $99.99 from Dot & Bo’s online store.

Chess becomes more challenging with three players! Traditional rules still apply though supplied instructions help guide the black, grey and white chessmen in battle. We like how the board can be stored easily and folded out for play. It costs $49.99 from Think Geek’s online site.
