Tiny Garden transports you to a magical world amid rows of drab terrace houses in a Kuala Lumpur suburb.
From the outside, the house looks nondescript like any other terrace house in this residential area located about 2 kms from the National Zoo in Selangor, Malaysia. But once you enter through the side gate, you are immediately transported to a different world – a world where you can immerse yourself with quiet times by the koi pond or even play with the tiny dogs that occasionally come to stay.
This is Tiny Garden, a marvel in terrace house design – especially since the designers are not professional designers but a family who operates a homestay. As Carmen the daughter says, “Our family likes to Do-It-Yourself. Every single decoration is done by our own hands.”
There is a relaxing reading corner, outdoor dining area, koi pond, and lush garden complemented by eclectic décor in every corner. You can’t help but get pleasantly distracted by all the decorations. At the same time, you feel the calm and serenity of the place. This place makes you feel at home and you can practically stay all day long in this pleasant environment.
Outdoor is where the action is – food is served there and most social interactions take place there despite a very warm and cozy indoor area. The details show how much care and effort have been taken to make this house as cozy and welcoming as possible.
Indeed, it is a beautiful oasis amid the hustle and bustle of Kuala Lumpur.
