Creating a functional interior is challenging. Creating a functional interior in less than 200 square feet, is MIND-BOGGLING!! Do you know what makes a Tumbleweed unique? The owner! Browse through a few tiny interiors below to see the creativity and individuality of each space.
Ariel's "Fy Nyth" Interior
Ariel's interior design on her Tumbleweed Cypress 24 is clean and inviting. Her transforming couch and table are great examples of multi-purpose furniture and really work to expand the space! Ariel brought nature (and a pop of color) into her tiny space with live plants. Her dark curtains add depth to her tiny interior, and her wrap around book shelf?? Books are beautiful, why hide them?

Ella's "Little Yellow" Interior
Ella's modified Cypress -18 has a whimsical theme with its curved window trim, live edge countertop and floral accents. Wainscoting with a natural top cap adds complexity to her walls. Ella chose to paint her wall panels white, while leaving the ceiling natural, creating separation. Ella's round kitchen sink is unique and beautiful, and she believes it's more functional than a rectangular sink because her dishes are round.

Art's Tiny Sip House Interior
Art's modified Tumbleweed Elm -18 interior is the sleek and earthy. The knotty paneling, reclaimed flooring and clean window trim combine to create a woodsy aesthetic. A reclaimed stained glass window (with a depiction of a crawfish) acts as a centerpiece for Louisiana Tiny House RV. LED lights with hand cut Shoji paper diffuse the interior light to a soft glow. Other highlights include a custom steel kitchen countertop and a collapsible futon couch.

Brittany's "Bayside Bungalow" Interior
Brittany's modified Cypress -18 is simple and sophisticated. "I wanted more of a cottage feel, rather than a cabin," she explains. Brittany had spent some time in France prior to decorating her tiny house, and she fell in love with the cottages along the French countryside. Her glass front door expands her space and lets in a lot of natural light. She also incorporated wicker accents, such as baskets and wicker chairs. A fold down table acts as a desk and a dinning area.
The "Bayside Bungalow" is available as a vacation rental in Olympia, Washington. More interior photos and information here.
Jenna & Guillaume's "Tiny House Giant Journey" Interior
This is my Tiny House RV interior, a modified Cypress - 20. I painted my walls because I felt that the pine panels clashed with my reclaimed accents, alligator juniper counters and maple floors. The white walls really open up the space, but they also protect my panels from moisture and warping. I chose bold patterns for my curtains, accent pillows and cushions. I mixed metals: copper, brass and steel. My interior design theme was a combination of "French Country" and "Rustic." A stainless steel wood stove acts as a centerpiece for my tiny space. There's nothing better than a tiny fireplace in a tiny space!
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
It's okay to be inspired by others! I loved Ella's live edge counter, Brittany's glass door and Art's dark floors. You can see their influence in my interior design, but I also made the space unique with some of my own ideas. For example, the thing I'm most proud of in my interior design, is the wood detail around my round window. Guillaume spent hours routing out a stump for our window trim, and we also created a "sunburst" effect with some spare pieces of reclaimed wood. It wasn't easy, but the finished product was worth the effort.
