20 of the world's most stylish small houses and flats

Living in a small space doesn't have to mean propping your TV precariously on a pile of old boxes, or books falling on your head every time you turn over in bed.

These tiny houses and flats from around the world make the most of their limited square footage without compromising on charm. In fact, being small is a central part of their appeal.

From the lakeside artist's studio in Stockholm to the Oregon-based cabin in the woods, these pint-sized abodes boast a series of clever design details that ooze character and make for a cosy, functional and uncluttered living space.
