Tiny houses across the country are showing that big style can be effortless in a small living space, like in this floating home just outside Vancouver’s central business district.  Its picture-perfect nautical look includes port hole windows and bright red and blue accents.

Inside, several thematic pieces of artwork, like a red and blue sailboat and a textured red canvas, continue the nautical feel of the space and accentuate the room’s high ceilings.  The look is also echoed in tiny details like a bright red tea kettle and knotted rope print bed sheets.

The 300 square-foot space is highly efficient.  The kitchen has everything you need with an oven, stove, sink, fridge, and toaster, as well as chic space-savers like a magnetic knife strip.  The sitting room combines comfy chairs with a small dining table and bright red stools. It also has a full bathroom and lofted bedroom.

The space makes use of its harbor address with two red Adirondack chairs on the pier.  You can easily imagine sitting here, strumming the guitar hung inside, and watching the sun set over the water. [Photography courtesy of Engel & Völkers]
