Trendy Portable Home Interior Living Space
Courtney Trent of Courtney's Good Cottage designs trailer interiors for movie stars and high-powered executives. She insists that you don't have to sacrifice comfort or luxury to live in a small, moveable space — you just have to figure out how to get the most out of every square inch.
In this petite trailer, small space does not equal small style. A contemporary interior boasts a comfy sofa with plenty of throw pillows to go around.

Storage for Days
Hooks for cooking utensils, high shelves that make the most of vertical space, and a cooking station with plenty of drawers and mini, built-in appliances keep clutter at bay in this tiny home.
