The tiny house craze is still going strong after more than a decade of steadily rising popularity. There are just so many virtues of tiny home living: too many to be ignored. As a result, many families are turning to small abodes to keep the cost of living down, live a more flexible lifestyle and reduce their carbon footprint. 

Currently, there are a number of HGTV shows on small space living, and every time you scroll through Instagram, it feels like yet another cute couple or family has decided to renovate a bus or RV—or build a tiny house on wheels from the ground up—and they’ve completely killed it on the design plan and execution. 

We’re rounding up 12 of the most stylish tiny house interiors from Instagram for your viewing pleasure. Who knows? Maybe this will be your year to live large in a downsized space. And if that’s the case, this story will surely come in handy.

1. Naturally Boho

This tiny home in Turkey by @mywhitedecoration features a unique setup: here, the bed sits beneath the living space rather than being lofted above. Beautiful black, white and green accents complete the boho vibe. 

2. Cozy and Complete

This New Zealand tiny home by @dibbstinydigs has all the comforts of a regular sized home, with an open floor plan featuring a living room and kitchen that flow beautifully into one another. Neutral colored decor and minimal accent pieces give the space a zen-like feel.

3. Feminine Flair

This rustic tiny home by @my_house_on_the_prairie is tastefully decorated with some of today’s hottest hues. We love the combination of mustard yellow and blush pink accents, and how the unique artwork picks up the colors. 

4. Big Family, Tiny Home

Yep, that’s a family of six living in a 250-square-foot converted bus. But can we please talk about how Debbie @themayesteam has still managed to have a kitchen with enviable butcher block countertops, a subway tile backsplash, and a matte black faucet? Between that, the built-in benches and plenty of smart storage ideas, this “tiny house” definitely caught our attention.

5. Posh Painted Bus

The Joneses (@thearrowanglers) just sold their RV earlier this year to live abroad in 2019, but that doesn’t mean they didn’t give us loads of ideas during their six-week renovation process and beyond. Blue cabinetry and an actual (tiny house!) island, gingham wallpaper, a functional fireplace and wooden wainscoting—that’s the stuff that design dreams are made of.

6. The Tiny Canal Cottage

Blonde cabinetry, a modern graphic gray tile backsplash, white wooden furniture—this well-known tiny house by @whitneyleighmorris still strikes all the right chords for us. Whitney’s indoor/outdoor California lifestyle is also super appealing and a great way to squeak more square footage out of your property.

7. Hygge-Inspired Tiny Home

This beautiful Colorado tiny home by @trailheadtiny features an impressive electric fireplace positioned directly across from a sizable cozy leather sofa for that perfect hygge vibe. 

8. Augustine the Airstream

Taylor and Nate Lavender remodeled this 1992 Airstream so they could travel to their heart’s content. They filled the tiny space with beautiful bohemian details and plenty of books. We love the interiors so much, we even featured “Augustine” as a House Tour this year.

9. Tiny and Quaint

Aussie-based “Tiny Miss Dolly” (@tinymissdollyonwheels) knocked her tiny house decor out of the park with her liberal use of plants, macrame, and the color pink. And if you thought you couldn’t go floor-to-ceiling with your windows or work a skylight into a small space, just take a look at her kitchen and loft, respectively.

10. Pretty and Bright

Pattern on pattern and layered texture is the name of the game at The Ramblr RV (@the_ramblr_RV), which has been decked to the nines with striped rugs, pillows, and ivory sheepskins. Add two cute pups and a love of music to the equation, with wall-hung guitars and a vinyl collection housed in an old dresser, and you’ve got a recipe for decorating success.

11. Treehouse A-Frame

Move over Sarah Sherman Samuel, there’s a new A-frame cabin in town courtesy of @treehouseaframe—and this one’s actually for rent! You don’t need much decor when you’ve got a roofline and full wall of windows like that, but the wood clad ceilings and paneled walls certainly help too. Shades of blue—an indigo pillow, a slate colored rug—round out the relaxed vibe here. 

12. Southwestern Chic

This 374-square-foot tiny house from Josh and Shelley (@tinyhousebasics) has a decidedly Southwestern flair, from the cactus wallpaper  to the Pendleton-esque blanket and leather pillows in the “living room.” The white-on-wood cabinetry really opens up the space, and the brass sculptural chandelier proves you can still make bold lighting choices, even if you’re in a small space. Oh, and let’s not forget about the live wood counter. That’s a one-of-a-kind feature you’d never expect to see in a tiny house setting. 

So there you have it—12 tiny houses with tons of ideas you can steal for your space, big or small.
