An Up Close Look at the Tiny House (Part 2)

It's time for another up close look at the tiny house! A big thank you to all of our clients and readers that have taken the time to look up the businesses that we mentioned in our last post. Don't forget to stop by our gallery to see more unique items and to purchase many of the pieces that you see here in our posts.

 

These stools are a huge part of Wyoming history. Those of you that have traveled our state are probably familiar with the Shoshoni Malt Shop. While it has been closed for several years, it used to be a Summer hot spot for tourists and locals alike. These orange stools used to reside in this beloved Wyoming business and are a special touch that Wyoming residents will appreciate.

This custom outdoor table is created from barnwood (the same used in the end table) and offers the perfect place for our adventurer to blog and edit photographs. The beautiful outdoor striped rug is from a local store Mustard Seed that we love to visit for unique home goods.

 

This wall is the perfect example of what Western Contemporary Design means to us. The crisp color of the wall balances the bold geometric print on the Pendleton blanket curtains. The unique sphere shape of the chandelier stays fresh with it's natural tones and the knick knacks and pictures add just the right bit of Western appeal. The custom curtain rod partnered with the rivets and leather straps (created by Corner Upholstery) is simple in design, yet rustic. The photographs are some of Shawn's own from the gallery.

This deer head is one of the most popular pieces in the Tiny House! Shawn purchased it from Mountain Dandy, a store located in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

Make sure you let us know in the comments if you have any questions about anything you've seen in our photographs. Follow us on Instagram and Facebook to see our latest projects and stop by the gallery if you're in town!

An Up Close Look at the Tiny House (Part 1)

In our last post, we took you on a walk through of the tiny house that we decorated for the Wyoming Office Of Tourism #CalloftheWY project on HGTV.com. This post (and in the next one) we are sharing an up close look at some of the items that we chose for the home. Whenever there are links available to the stores where décor was purchased, we have included them in the text.

jackalope

The Jackalope is almost as much a symbol of Wyoming as our bucking horse and cowboy! While the tales of the origins of this unique critter are many...we would strongly caution our readers to think twice before heading out with a native of Wyoming on a Jackalopehunt. This particular mount was created by Louis Ray of Ray's Taxidermy Studio. Shawn couldn't resist its fierce look, we think it brings just the right amount of Wyoming whimsy to the décor.

This picture shows a close up look at two custom pieces that were created here at the Shawn Rivett Designs studio. The side table is made with reclaimed barn wood from a town just 30 miles away from Casper, WY. The beautiful blue color and worn area is 100% natural and how the wood was when we purchased it. If you notice the custom lamp on top, it is also created just for the tiny house. Its slim design leaves lots of room for books and a cup of coffee. The solid base of deer antlers keeps the lamp secure as the tiny house heads down road for more adventures!

This pottery was created by the infamous "Mad Potter" of Jeffry City, Wyoming. Its unique shape and design, along with a rough textured glaze, makes it an eye catching conversation piece. You can find more of the "Mad Potter's" work for sale in our gallery.

The quaint pencil drawings that can be found hanging on the walls in various nooks and crannies of the tiny house are all from a local pawn shop, Carousel Antiques and Consignments. The soap, solid lotion, and Turkish towels come from WyoIst and Vintage Body Care. We thought their unique products would offer a bit of the comforts of home to our adventurer.

Stop by next week to take a look at some more of the unique Wyoming items that have been incorporated into Shawn's décor!
