Living in a small house or apartment is common —and trendy —today. If you have ever walked the isles of Ikea or watch Tiny Nation you will know exactly what we're talking about. With people flocking to metropolitan areas or simply wanting a smaller footprint it has become a trend that has swept the country. And who says bigger is better anyway? Even furniture retailers are adjusting the scale of their furniture lines and designers are quick to learn ways to maximize space.

Decorist Elite designer, Ashley Redmond, is no stranger to this concept. In fact, she recently moved into a 500 square foot "treehouse" nestled in the woods of Marin county, right over the Golden Gate bridge. Needless to say, the size of her new home did not compromise her fabulous style. Instead she designed the ultimate laid-back, Bohemian retreat that recently was featured in Apartment Therapy.

Today, we will take you on a tour of Ashley's tiny treehouse and share some tips on how to design a small space with big impact.
