5 of the best Instagram accounts to follow if you’ve got a tiny home

If you’re living in a small house, apartment, sharing a space with housemates, or simply trying to create a more efficient and considered home, then these tiny home Instagram accounts are for you.


The tiny home movement has taken over Instagram as of late, from people converting incredibly small sites or caravans into full-time abodes to those going on the road with a van, which has spawned its own hashtag, #vanlife, if you’re interested. In the current housing climate, plenty of people are turning to small homes and caravans as a cheap and more sustainable way to live, so long as you do it right.

However, if you’re looking for something less aspirational and more practical when it comes to your little home, there are a few Irish and international accounts worth a follow.

If you’re looking to follow a single project from beginning to end, this fab little trailer on Vancouver Island has a little bit of everything. Construction and layout design as well as interiors inspiration and DIY tips, they have documented their journey of building their dream tiny home from start to finish.

It also features an adorable Vizsla pup named Murphy, which, in my eyes at least, is a huge bonus. @westcoasttinyhome

If you follow the Image Interiors & Living Instagram account, you probably already know how in love we are with this slow living cabin, carriage and camping park in Norfolk.

Beautifully restored cabins and old train carriages have been converted into weekend stays using as much natural and reclaimed materials as possible. Jo, the owner, has such a deftness of touch with all of the interiors that each one makes you want to hole up in there forever. @settlenorfolk

This Dublin apartment run by homeowner Mark is one of our favourite Instagrams for a relaxing peruse. It’s a beautiful, simplified space that is clean and calm, while also being warm and inviting. Great for inspiration if you’re looking for a Scandinavian mid-century feel that isn’t too cold. @mark__t
