Behold this perfectly on-trend tiny home getaway, outfitted in simple but still design-forward style throughout. Designed by Australian studio Fresh Prince (no relation to Will Smith), the 150-square-foot Barrington Tops cabin is perched on a mobile chassis , but it stays mostly stationary along the banks of a lake in New South Wales, Australia.

The house is clad in black Weathertex, a material made from timber byproduct, and is powered by solar panels. Inside, the compact home embraces minimal Scandi style with pale wood, black accents, clean lines, and smart details.

The platform bed is stashed next two large picture windows and comes with a built-in headboard ledge and storage underneath. The living area also includes a kitchenette, tiny dining area, and a bathroom with copper and brass fixtures.

If you happen to be in the area, the cabin is available to book, starting at $200 a night.
