One of the first steps to living tiny is to downsize one’s belongings. At the end of the day, there simply isn’t enough space to fit 2,000 square feet of stuff into 200 square feet! While decluttering coach Morgan lives in a modest (but not tiny) 1,200 square foot home, her organization advice is relevant to tiny homers as well.

During our interview she mentioned that a home is like a garden — each season it needs care and upkeep — it’s not a “one and done” project. I love that reframing of mind! We constantly need to evaluate what we have, what we need, and what we should pass on in order to live more simply.

Enjoy the pictures below of her mid-century modern home, and then read the Q&A with some advice for decluttering below! Follow her on Instagram here.

Pierre and Lea live with their young daughter in a stunning off-grid tiny house perched in the Swiss Alps. It features a giant family-sized bed (no loft!) with amazing under-bed clothing storage drawers, a Montessori-inspired children’s space, and a bathroom with a stunning stone shower.

The home is heated with a large wood-burning stove, and solar panels provide electricity. They have some really clever storage/tiny house hacks including a folding stool that comes out of the cabinets in the kitchen, and embroidery hoops to provide shade/privacy through the circular windows.

Enjoy the lovely tour with Alternative House posted below, and follow the family on Instagram here.

There are so many reasons to go tiny: To reduce costs, to live “greener,” to travel more — and for Talia, to have a clean and simple living area that helps her live well as a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP). We got to interview Talia and she tells us more about what it means to be an HSP, her tiny life, and her work helping others live more simply.

Her home was built for her by Mint Tiny Homes in British Columbia, and Talia said she had a great experience with the builder. Inside she has a loft bedroom, comfortable living area, kitchen complete with a farmhouse sink, and a spacious bathroom with a subway tile shower.

Enjoy the photo tour and our Q&A with Talia!

Sylvie bought a tiny house to have a permanent, full-time home for her and her teenage daughter.

Living tiny gives her more financial freedom. Her house will be paid for in 10 years, and she already has more flexibility to travel and spend time doing what she loves. She also hopes that her new minimalist lifestyle will allow her to help save money for her daughter’s studies when the time comes.
