From tiny home living to selling everything so you can live on a boat, alternative lifestyles are all the rage these days. Part of their popularization stems from TV shows that show people downsizing and moving into Airstreams, modular tiny homes, or even boats. But the biggest window into alternative living right this second is Instagram.
Maybe it’s because the sky just looks bluer with a good filter (#Valencia4ever), but photos on Instagram inspire us to get outside and try living in ways we’d never have considered before. And even if you’re never going to move from your 3-bedroom oasis into a tiny houseboat, that doesn’t mean you can’t dream.
We’ve rounded up 21 awesome Instagram accounts so that you can fantasize living in everything from tree houses to teardrop trailers. This is aspirational travel at its best.
