I have recently graduated with a Bachelor’s of Fine Art in Interior Design from Corcoran School of Art + Design at the George Washington University. When given the opportunity to choose my senior thesis project at Corcoran, I chose to research the tiny house movement because I’ve always had an obsession with tiny spaces. Throughout my college career I have consistently tried to keep the designs of my architecture/interior design projects as small as possible; I believe these constrictions allow designers to conceive creative solutions for living that would not necessarily be discovered when designing a traditionally sized home.
During my research I discovered the Minim Home and completely fell in love with its design. The sustainable features, multipurpose furniture, and the open modern aesthetic very much influenced my own tiny home design. I am very excited to be a part of Micro Showcase!
For the past 6 months I have been designing my own tiny home for myself and my Alaskan Malamute, Nymeria. I plan to start building it myself as soon as I have the resources to do so. For me, tiny living is about a greener and budget-friendly lifestyle. It allows people to escape the traps of consumerism and live a more freeing existence with the ability to travel. I cannot wait to officially be a part of the growing tiny home community.
