Welcome to the Cottage.

The Tiny Canal Cottage® is a 1920's Craftsman-style house by the Venice Beach Canals in Southern California. This <400 sqft home/office is the full-time residence of Creative Director Whitney Leigh Morris, her husband, their son, and two rescue beagles.

Temporary Dishwasher Cover

So many people have asked about the fun lil' dishwasher cover featured in one of our recent Cottage images:

The artwork pictured is a piece of wallpaper that was designed by my friend (and total genius) Justina Blakeney for Hygge and West. Instead of fully adhering the paper to the front of the dishwasher, I simply used four magnets to hold it in place.

Try extra strong magnets. Or, if you'd prefer to use adhesive, try something "damage free," such as contact strips.

Wrapping paper is a wonderful way to expand your options, and switch up your look at very little cost.
