Well Chosen Goods
I recently sat down for an interview with one of my favorite local brick-and-mortars about our lifestyle here in our lil’ LA cottage. Read/view the full story via Well Chosen by our friends at Midland. Below is a selection of additional imagery by Ashley Randall, and a preview of the the Q&A by the lovely Paige and Kelly of Midland.
Midland: What is your favorite thing about living in a small space and what’s one thing that is challenging about it?
Whitney: Living in a small space provides me with a constant reminder that I have all I need and more— and to be grateful for it. For me, living tiny isn’t a sacrifice. On the contrary. Our lives are overflowing, and I hope and aim to pay that extraordinary fortune forward through my work and my daily interactions with others.
Midland: When shopping brick and mortar shops, what inspires your purchases and keeps you coming back?
Whitney: Adam and I do very little shopping in general (o’ the joys of living in a tiny house!), but there are a handful of exceptional brick and mortars we love to visit and support. I’m delighted by practical goods that are also works of art. For example, a versatile pitcher that was formed by hand into a beautiful sculptural work makes my senses sing! The idea that a work of art can brighten your home with its form, while also serving as a watering vessel for plants, a vase for clippings, and a serving piece for your family’s meals is something that I find so valuable. I gravitate towards shops that collect and curate pieces crafted in this spirit.
