The Top Influencers To Turn To For Tiny Home Interior Decorating Ideas
Here are some incredible tiny lifers who’ve taken their small spaces to the next level. They’ve all figured out ways to put an elegant stamp on their tiny homes in an inspiring and incredibly trendy way.
1. Robert, Samantha, and Aubrin Sage – @shed_tinyhouse
Robert and Samantha Sage have been exploring alternative living for decades.
In 2008 they packed up their Honda Civic to spend 30 days blazing trails coast to coast in the US, then did the vagabond thing in Europe just a few years later, hopping trains with their trusty hiking packs.
They’ve spent the last six years exploring just how much room you can find in a 200 sq ft space, converting their ‘Shed’ home into a gorgeous example of multi-use spaces.
Their fittings, fixtures, and furniture are attractive and always designed to maximize the space available.
They recently added a new member to the family and decided to upgrade to a ‘massive’ 665 sq ft apartment.
2. Shannon Soine – @shannonsoine
Shannon Soine has been living in a tiny home with her husband since 2016.
They’re no strangers to living in small spaces, having spent their honeymoon wandering the Pacific coast in their SUV to catch the next wave.
They’ve set up their life to allow travel without direction, whenever and wherever they want to go.
Their current home is a 210 sq ft tiny home that is set up to emphasize space and comfort.
It’s decked out with gorgeous little features in shades of white and gray that serve to maximize the natural light while still showing their personalities.
My personal favorite was the hideaway trundle bed peeking out from their combined office/closet space

Her tiny home, the 400ish sq ft Tiny Canal Cottage, is an OG tiny house dating back to 1924.
It’s a beautiful craftsman style home that feels way larger than it is thanks to her clever and space-saving design features.
Pocket doors, permanently placed storage furniture, and vaulted ceilings help give her tiny craftsman home a massive upgrade in apparent size.
Her website includes links to her various tiny living projects and a way to contact her to find out more about her small spaces lifestyle advice.
She has a book that I highly recommend called “Small Space Style: Because You Don’t Need to Live Large to Live Beautifully.”
