Today we have a very special home feature for you! Kelly Christine Sutton is a super talented lifestyle photographer and film maker who happens to live in an American Tiny House. Obsessed!!! We were beyond thrilled when she agreed to share her tiny space with us.

“Our Golden tiny house is currently located in my tiny hometown of Golden, Texas. It’s located about 80 miles east of Dallas. I was raised here, and my husband and I moved back from the city about 1 1/2 months ago into our custom built tiny home on wheels. Finding a place to park a THOW can be trickier in the city, so we were very fortunate to be able to temporarily move it to family property in the country.
Cabinet Knobs and Drawer Pulls/Joss & Main, Teapot/Schoolhouse Electric.
“We chose to go tiny for several reasons; the major ones being the desire for mobility, financial independence and environmental neutrality. Like most people our age, we’d been sinking thousands of dollars into renting, and we wanted something to call our own that allowed the freedom to move. We had acquired so much stuff over the years, we both started to feel the weight and burden of it. A tiny house seemed perfect for us if we were able to fully customize it to our liking, and our builders at American Tiny House ended up being a great choice. My husband, Canaan, is studying to be an environmental biologist, so the idea of decreasing our carbon footprint was really exciting to us both. Aside from all that, we just really liked the idea of living with less and focusing more on experiences and people rather than things.
Rug/Joss & Main.

“My favorite space in our home is our cozy little living room under the loft. We picked the perfect couch that allows us to put our feet up and watch movies or play our favorite video games.
Velvet Hangers/Joss & Main, Laundry Basket and Dust Pan/Schoolhouse Electric.
Shower Curtain/Schoolhouse Electric.
“My husband’s book collection is one of our favorite things in the house. I think they’re beautiful and add a certain coziness to the space. Most people expected we would put them all in storage when we moved in, but we found a way to make them all fit nicely.
Planters, Patio Table, Rug, Hammock Chairs, and Wall Lantern/Joss & Main.
“After almost 2 months here, we are loving our home. We’ve really made it our own, and it feels like we’ve lived here for years. If you’re thinking about going tiny, just go for it!”

Thanks for sharing your house wow what a wonderful house it looks so beautiful and pleasant.
Kelly, can you tell me the brand of your kitchen stove? I love it!
What is the color of the kitchen? So lovely!
where is the sink in your kitchen from? We are about to renovate our home and this is exactly what we are looking for.
Love everything about this. Where did you get the horse shoe? thanks
Where is the Golden Horseshoe from above the sink?
Hi Kelly! Did you still end up leaving some furniture or items in storage or were you able to incorporate everything you wanted to keep into the new space? Thank you!
What is the name/brand of that blueish teal paint color?!
This tiny house is beautiful! Probably the first that I’ve seen that looks big enough to deal with haha. Though it would be rough to not be able to entertain very often – I suppose you have to be open to outdoor eating!

I find tiny homes to be so intriguing. I would love to try it one day but I don’t know if I could actually go through with it.
What is that beautiful teal color in your bathroom? 🙂
I’ve come back to re-read this several times. What a beautiful home!
What a beautiful home! Definite #goals going on here.
i love that you still keep a cat!
I’m obsessed with the tiny house movement! So cool to see this. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks for sharing your home. I went to the Tiny Home Expo at the St Johns Fairgrounds last month. I am working towards going tiny. I live in SO FL and do not have a place to put my home! 🙁 I hope this movement takes hold down here. For now I am cleaning out and getting rid of years of STUFF! I love your floors. My only hesitation is the loft….I think I want a Murphy bed….thoughts?
I love how tiny but amazing your house is! The idea of people vs possessions is great as well!
The kitchen is gorgeous http://www.likehanna.com
The embroidery above the stove ? I have to try and recreate this! Agh where oh where to start?!
Such a beautiful home! Anyone who will live in this place will sure to enjoy staying inside it. And the outdoor place is such a beauty as well.
