A tiny house with charming farmhouse style

This cute, tiny house in Fayetteville, Arkansas is the result of a mother-daughter collaboration. Owner Lauren Sivewright and her mom worked together to design and decorate the 406 square foot cottage - their goal was a light, bright, and clean interior.
The layout features a living room area, canopy bed, a galley style kitchen, a double vanity bathroom, an office, and even a laundry space. Thanks to smart furniture placement and unique built-in storage, the tiny cottage manages to provide all the needs of everyday living. Take the full tour below!

Tucked in the corner is a built-in desk and wall of open shelves - together they create a small but functional office. Woven baskets and white bins provide attractive storage.

Surprisingly, the tiny kitchen features full size appliances including a side by side refrigerator, dishwasher, and double oven. Bead board details, granite counter tops, and bronze fixtures create a welcoming farmhouse style.

More country charm can be found in the bathroom. Burlap sink curtains are a space-saving alternative to swinging cabinet doors, while still providing closed storage.
