Rich Neutrals

This tiny house is dressed in rich neutrals inside and out. From the wood tones to the paint colors, the textiles to vintage accessories, everything is inspired to blend into the home's natural surroundings.

Rustic Exterior

The exterior siding color is called Char and gives the tiny house massive rustic appeal.

Pretty Plum

Talk about a fun front door. This subtle plum color doesn’t distract from the home’s more neutral tones, but adds a dash of pizzazz to the exterior.

Soothing Scheme

Neutrals don’t have to be boring! This relaxing, cool color scheme suits its small surroundings perfectly. The tones offer a soothing oasis from the great big world.

Warm and Cool Neutrals

Next to warm, light pine trim and ceilings, the HGTV Home by Sherwin Williams paint color Sea Salt is a perfect cool neutral. Its fresh green undertones balance the tints in the exposed wood.

Hardy Countertop

The light wood color found in the trim and ceiling is picked up again in the laminate countertop, which is durable and keeps the space feeling airy. A chrome faucet, stainless steel sink and galvanized aluminum backsplash reflect light around the kitchen.

Gray Pine Cabinets

The cabinetry base was stained in a dusty gray color, allowing the grain of the pine to show through.

Pop of Color

Kitchen and bathroom towels offer some fresh pops of pastel, in addition to picking up the Sea Salt color.

Pattern with Personality

The sofa area sets the stage for the mix of color and patterns in the space. In a palette of crisp whites and medium grays, the modern graphic design on the sofa adds a lot of personality without competing with the neutral pillows.

White Trim

The white piping on the sofa trim, along with some splashes of white through the rest of the space, keeps things crisp and airy.

Bright White

Fresh white curtains blow in the breeze and add privacy without a lot of visual weight.

Vintage Lighting

A vintage clip-on light fixture provides a pop of green to balance out gray and white neutrals.

Cooking Colors

These adorable and space-saving pots and pans add some additional pops of green in the kitchen area.

Out of Sight, Out of Mind

If a chair folds in the forest and no one is around to sit in it, why not hang it up and out of the way? A folding chair hangs up, ready to grab, and adds a bit of warm green to this cool space.

Lovely Laminate

Light laminate flooring adds to the expansive feeling, while hiding dirt and dust from the great outdoors. The color doesn’t compete with the other stain and wood grains in the space, ensuring this tiny house flows well from top to bottom.
