Loving Tiny Houses

Have you guys had a chance to watch Tiny on Netflix yet? B and I watched it this week and we’re seriously feeling so inspired as we think about someday building a house of our own. Tiny is a documentary that follows a couple as they build the teeniest of tiny little houses (about 130 square feet) and features tiny home dwellers from around the world. The so-called tiny house movement is pretty amazing when you think about it. People are choosing to live small, cutting back on the clutter, limiting their material possessions and in doing so are freeing up their time and their financial resources to live the lives they’ve always dreamed of living. They’re traveling. Pursuing creative passions. Working less. Playing more. Living large while living small.

These tiny houses are beautifully designed with a focus on both form and function that is outright inspiring. By cutting back on space and excess, people are crafting gorgeous homes that prioritize every square inch. With less space to furnish and decorate, they can afford materials and furnishings that they love. With less house to pay for, maintain, and heat, their housing budgets are just a fraction of what has come to be seen as the norm. This amazing home (designed by Jessica of Jessica Helgerson Interior Design for her family) clocks in at 540 square feet and features everything a growing family needs despite it’s small size. It sits on five acres and it has everything from a beautiful dining room to a library to the coolest kids’ room. It was renovated and outfitted almost exclusively with reclaimed materials. Also, it’s kind of my dream home. See more of it here.

Just a bit of food for thought today and a look at what’s inspiring me currently. Would you ever live in a tiny house?

Wow, each room is really beautiful in their own ways! Yes, it is true that even if there is only small floor space in a tiny house, an effective interior design can still be performed.
