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.

Excerpt: “We’ve loved this first year with West in the cottage so very much,” Morris tells Babble. “It’s tough to articulate, but somehow our proximity makes every moment feel that much more special and intimate." Additionally, Morris believes their tiny canal cottage has improved her relationship. “We function in tandem with one another — as parents, as a couple, and as co-workers,” Morris describes to Babble.  “I believe I’m a better and more considerate partner now, thanks to our experiences in our little home.”

Exerpt: Now, as a master of optimizing space, Morris recommends this to anyone living small: “Go vertical. Get rid of excess. And, whenever possible, select multi-functional pieces that serve more than one purpose.” (Something we could all afford to do, actually, regardless of square footage.) - Click here to read the full story.  Thank you, Babble + Disney!
