Over in Austin, Texas, the ever-evolving tiny house craze goes glam and design-y in the hands of local interior designer and home renovation reality show pro Kim Lewis. This 400-square-foot dwelling, which Lewis crafted for a couple moving from Colorado to Austin, is composed of two trailers connected by a covered breezeway and a ton of eye-catching, textured details throughout. To start, the home's entrance has been turned into a dynamic outdoor entertaining space, with pastel-hued steps doubling as seating.
The house, already featured on a recent episode of the FX's Tiny House Nation, is now the star of a new story from Lonny, which calls the home's decor style "Midcentury meets Marfa." In the high-contrast kitchen, there's stark white shelving against sleek dark walls and ceilings, along with wood flooring salvaged from a 1960s Austin home. At the same time, living spaces are adorned with Guatemalan textiles and intricate perforated copper panels. Since the project involved two trailers, Lewis was able to put in a feature rarely seen in other one-trailer tiny houses: a sizable storage platform over the trailer's gooseneck. Hello "walk-in closet!" Head over to Lonny for the full story and more photos.
