Funny how my world is getting larger, but my head still swirls with dreams of simple living. There’s obviously something very, very appealing about it because I made a mental note to myself that it was lovely to to have everything at arm’s reach when we were camping in the Twinkie. I’ve followed this blog and her transformation into tiny living, and I’ve become a huge fan of this guy, who’s making quite a name for himself in the minimalist community. For now, I’m content to begin the pare down plan with baby steps and enjoy lurking on folks who have taken big steps to making life easier. Especially the tiny house…the whole thing is fascinating to me.
Let’s take a tour, shall we?
This type is what your see most when you Google “tiny houses”:
But this one below is more my speed, I think. Love those modern lines!
This is the perfect teeny tiny house. Just open enough to not feel small.
I think big windows are the key too:
Love the idea of a sleeping loft:
Love looking at dream kits for modern house on this site. This is, by far, my fave site to dream small. The idea of pre-fab is fab and I think it would be amazing out on the High Desert in my favorite place, Bend.
The most lovely thought, of course, is the teeny tiny beach bungalow. Ahhhh….so lovely.
StudioMama’s, above, is precious.
Seaside, Florida is the ultimate in beach beauty…the fence makes it.
The front of this house above takes my breath away. Take the tour-–just too cute.
In the interest of simplifying and making a space smaller, I love this story about a Portland family who moved to beautiful Sauvie Island. You’ve probably seen their house on Pinterest—it’s so sweet.

Some articles that made me think (and turn in the direction of rational minimalism):
~ This Australian lovely gets it.
~ She also waxes poetic about the internet and what it’s doing to our perception of our what perfection is.
~ Asking myself why I covered a thousand books in cream butcher paper after reading this post.
~ I love this podcast on simplifying…the couple is so sweet and have such great ideas.
‘Wondering what your thoughts are on paring down and powering up…
Happy few weeks of summer, Lovelies~
