Could your family live in 540 sf?
A family just north of Portland makes incredible use of a tiny home, and even allows for guests to visit. I’m not sure about you, but setting my family up in a tiny home, and keeping it clean might be victory enough, without allowing for guests. You can read more about Yanni and Jessica Helgerson, and their Eco Friendly Tiny Home Here. I love the clear organization of their tiny pad. I just wonder how it is at night, climbing that ladder to the parents sleeping quarters, while the baby is sleeping.
A few years back, my husband and I moved into a one room loft space, and my experience was actually really great. We found the love grew big in a tiny space. Although our 700 sf was definitely less designer, we enjoyed having a small space to live in. When we moved into our larger home, we quite missed the coziness of our small space, and it took a minute to remember that we could actually go to another room if one was taking an afternoon nap.
Could you and your family do it? Let us know below what the hardest part would be.

The kitchen is one of my favorite spaces in this home, with the Half Baked Backsplash in Icing On The Cake and the West Elm light fixture that just adds an extra punch against the cool blue wall.

When Film meets Fashion, Fashion meets Interiors. This Modern Deco twist on the Great Gatsby is deliciously disguised as Daisy Buchanan’s style. The simplicity may be not as extravagant as her humble mansion abode, but the details and gold accents replicate the same elegance, in a Modern Day setting.
Since Gatsby flair has flooded the internet and stores, you can achieve this home look with our Hex’s and Marble Subways and shop online for this year’s Halloween Costume! Daisy Buchanan’s style is nothing short of impeccable, so why not bring her to life this Halloween wearing these dazzling details!
While we love our Subways, sometimes we just need a little pattern in our life! These Patterned Tile Ideas offer that extra pizzazz that your home is missing. Whether you install a random pattern with these decorative tiles in the same color scheme on a backsplash, or let the pattern do the talking on your bathroom floor, the options are endless and oh so pretty!
Is your home looking tired, but you’re afraid of the cost of renovation? Put your pretty little head at ease when you discover what can be done in 7 Days on a $5K Budget! Even if you plan on selling your home, check out what a face lift that won’t break the bank can do for resale value!
Luis & Mary Elizabeth Oropeza carefully thought out every detail when it came to renovating to this Nashville home. Here are the Before & After Photos, and you won’t believe that a majority of paint, fixtures, and items were furnished from Stores like Home Depot, Target, and IKEA! Warning: You will be inspired with this amazing DIY 7 Day Flip Challenge, and may end up spending the weekend shopping at Home Depot.
The BEFORE photo of the home, the 70′s browns just aren’t cutting it. No Curb Appeal, and absolutely dingy and tired.
From drab to FAB, the new exterior was given a face lift with a fresh new coat of paint, Sherwin Williams Decisive Daisy, removal of the shutters, and a cheery and welcoming yellow door! The grey and white contrast updates this home, and the front door color adds that wow factor.
Not only did the front of the house get some love, the doors opening to the yard keep the bright and playful yellow accent going!
The kitchen is one of my favorite rooms that got the royal DIY treatment! Again with the brown in these BEFORE photos, while earth tones are comforting, this kitchen just needed to be brought up to speed to reflect the new and contemporary exterior.
The dining area in the kitchen was screaming to be updated as well. While beige and browns are the usual go-to colors for wall paint, you couldn’t change the kitchen without helping out this space too!
The kitchen AFTER an overhaul of a new backsplash which is Mission’s Half Baked: Icing on the Cake, a fresh white coat of Rust-Oleam Spray Paint for only $20, and new wall paint, looks absolutely stunning!
The Blue toned wall paint in the Dining Area compliments the backsplash, and the gorgeous light fixture is from West Elm. This fab combination dazzles with delight!
The Living Room BEFORE was dark and cave like, dark trim, dark walls, and dark furniture. If this eat-in kitchen looks this stellar, a little brightening up in the Living Room is called into action!
With a fresh coat of white paint, furniture and decor from IKEA and Target, you can’t get a better and brighter look than this at such an affordable price!
The Powder Room and Laundry rooms were nothing short of ordinary BEFORE, but AFTER adding new wall paint and Mission’s Uon Uon Porcelain Black Positive & Negative Wood Tiles, these rooms like positively clean and contemporary!
The bedrooms were also lacking charisma BEFORE with dark trim and lots of boring brown tones, but became boudoir worthy AFTER they were transformed with fresh new paint, plus new furniture and decor from IKEA & Target, and Home Depot Painters Drop Cloths pinched as draperies!
