The reviews on these towels tell the story.

“These towels are dense, luxurious and beautifully designed. I bought two at the Grand Canyon gift shop and since then have a growing collection of these cool designs. I love Pendleton so much that I recently gave their hoodie towel as a baby gift.” – Austin T X

“I buy one a year and have also received 2 as gifts. Love these towels. They’re like art pieces hanging in my bathroom and they double as a blanket for outdoor concerts.” – Pacific NW

“It’s almost embarrassing how much I absolutely love these towels. I wanted something beautifully made, luxuriously big and super absorbent to have ready for sunny days by the pool. The hanging loop is a nice extra touch–though I keep them rolled in a big wire basket by the door because they are gorgeous enough to keep out on display.” – Scottsdale AZ

“I bought one of these towels for my husband for Christmas and we loved it so much we bought three more for ourselves and two as gifts. They are so absorbent and yet thin enough to dry out quickly, even in a city as humid as Houston.” – Houston TX

Baskets for Mothers’ Day

You can still get these beautiful baskets in time for Mother’s Day! They make a dramatic accent on tabletops and buffets, and there is a color for every home’s palette. Each one is hand woven by craftswomen in Rwanda using sisal fibers and sweet grass.  Perfect as a centerpiece, fruit bowl, or wall hanging, each basket comes with a weaver profile and helps lift women out of poverty.

Another adorable tiny home with Pendleton

Apartment Therapy

We found some Pendleton touches in another tiny house, this one on Apartment Therapy. We were intrigued by this particular structure because it’s a conversion. Most tiny homes are built to be tiny (like Tam and Sean’s, featured earlier this month), but this one is a converted outbuilding–a garage, to be exact. With its loft and 250 square feet of living space, it has much of the aesthetic of a home that was built small, but it’s charmingly square. The plank walls and rustic rafters give this home a real cabin feel, and the exposed lathe-and-plaster over the bed is another charming touch.

So enjoy the feature!

Years Lived In: 7 months; Rented

A clothing rack and piece of artwork.Though she was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, Coralie Hews has always possessed a Southwestern sensibility, especially when it comes to matters of interior design. Her beloved New Mexican textiles, cacti, and earth tones have always had a prominent place in her design palette, so it’s no surprise that all of those tasteful elements come into play in her dreamy, 250-square-foot cabin.

A stack of wool blankets at the foot of a bed.Because Coralie downsized from a spacious one-bedroom apartment to a much smaller, lofted, one-room garage-turned-cabin, she was forced to edit all of her furniture and decor down to only her personal must-haves; she loaned a few pieces to friends, got rid of things that she had no use for, and put some bulkier odds and ends into storage. What she was left with is a charming juxtaposition: a bohemian blend of desert-inspired textiles and ceramics with a well-loved collection of Pacific Northwest relics.

The tiny home kitchen.Coralie rents the space from Emily Christensen, the Portland-based clothing designer behind Filly and Beeek, who lives in the main house. Three years ago, Christensen turned the garage on the property into a cabin which was originally listed on Airbnb, but eventually became home to year-round renters. Coralie was lucky enough to hear about the space through a good friend who was a previous tenant and was able to settle into the cabin in the spring of this year.

Though it does take effort for Coralie to keep such a small space simultaneously functional and aesthetically pleasing (i.e., keeping the place clutter-free), it is a challenge that she gladly tackles each day. The contentment she finds in living in her cozy, tiny cabin is a worthy payoff. Thanks for sharing your lovely space with us, Coralie!
