Did you ever think you’d want to live in a grain silo? Amy of Old Worlds Antieks has built a little home out of leftover materials based on a silo that is a dream come true for me.
This charming little “cottage” boasts antique and hand-picked furnishings throughout, as well as a comfy living area, bathroom, and a covered porch with plenty of seating.
With the rounded walls and distinct sides that you expect from a silo, the entrance to this home is a part of the silo. A comfortable reclining area welcomes you to relax for a few minutes or simply remove your shoes before exploring the place.
Amy gives a special touch to every room with her shabby chic design, which is popular with antique dealers and pickers. The interior decor is a mishmash of cozy seats and seats adjacent to abandoned signs, rusted pails, old crates, and even glass salvaged from demolished homes.
Taking a step inside this house is unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. It doesn’t feel like a grain silo at all, but it does have that rustic appearance.
The living room’s internal walls are rounded just inside the entryway. This large open space is the actual silo, and it’s perfect for a living room or a reading corner.
In an otherwise industrial-looking room, cozy chairs and tables alongside windows offer charm. I like how the galvanized look is complemented with the wall-mounted storage bins. To bring elegance to an otherwise basic area, modern comfort chairs are combined with items such as a wooden box and an antique lamp.
The bedroom is one of my favorite places in the house. Amy has chosen reclaimed wood for the walls, which has the look of being torn from an old house.
The ceiling is a classic galvanized pattern that complements the space without being overbearing. A simple pattern provides detail without detracting from the space’s natural attractiveness.
Of course, the unusual windows that were originally part of a dental office are visible. Amy might feel proud of claiming these windows before they were damaged, and it was meant to be in this silo tiny home design.
