Based out of the commune of Le Pallet in Brittany, France, Baluchon is a small studio that makes beautiful bespoke tiny houses. Established in 2016 by Laëtitia Dupé and Vincent Bouhours, the team has already completed 14 unique dwellings, and their fifteenth project is a warm and cheerful home known as Tiny House Valhalla.

Designed for a family of three who live nearby, the 140-square-foot abode features an exterior facade comprised of horizontally laid wood siding, with sections painted white for interesting contrast. The door, roof, and window frames have been painted an upbeat, vibrant blue to enhance Valhalla's whimsical charm.
The house had two lofted spaces—one for a living lounge and the other for the parent’s "bedroom," which is located above the bathroom and kitchen, and is accessible via floating steps.

The half-level living loft boasts a sofa, coffee table, and potted plants.
Two wardrobes that sit under the living area form a small corridor, which leads to an extra sleeping space. When not in use, the homeowners can also use this room for hidden storage by closing the yellow curtains.
