What you'll do

Your home is where you play, relax, work, and imagine. And it can be inspirational, functional and comfortable no matter the square-footage. Over the course of an hour, we’ll explore how to generate and maintain sense of calm, maximize space, and create a truly unique small space unlike any other with the help of plants, pop-up zones and functional decor. We’ll explore my home and garden via a detailed tour as a way of demonstrating small space solutions first-hand, and we'll touch on the topic of sustainable sourcing, and eco-friendly space-saving swaps.

"Before visiting the Cottage I had always assumed small spaces to be cluttered or coldly minimalistic. Whitney's eye for detail and her spirit of beauty creates a space that fills the visitor with warmth and welcome. I am deeply envious of her ability to curate aesthetically and tactically satisfying environments. I have tried to emulate this but trust me it is a rare talent. She is a rare talent." - Amy Adams

I own and run a small space lifestyle consulting business based in Venice, California. As firm believer that you don't need to "live large" to live beautifully, I use social media, my blog, original videos, and my book “Small Space Style: Because You Don’t Need to Live Large to Live Beautifully” to share tips and ideas geared towards helping individuals, couples, families, and businesses operate comfortably and contentedly in—and with—a smaller footprint. For years, I've also shared my expertise via an extensive and diverse array of news, editorial outlets, and speaking engagements, such as CNN, Insider, Domino, Dwell, Sunset, Today, Access Live, Architectural Digest, Good Housekeeping, Apartment Therapy, Create & Cultivate, and dozens of lifestyle brands and websites.

Whitney was just as personable hosting this as she is on her instagram. She welcomes you in, encouraged questions and did a beautiful job or showing all the bits and pieces you don’t see on Instagram. Her personality and kindness shined and I was grateful for the experience.

Such a great experience! Even as a devoted follower of Whitney’s Instagram and blog, I felt like I was seeing new things and getting such valuable info. Whitney is a warm and generous host, and takes pains to make this experience feel special and intimate. I gleaned a lot of knowledge that I can apply to my own space.

I can't believe how much I learned in only an hour. Whitney is clearly an expert at living beautifully in a small space. She did an amazing job providing the tour of her house and sharing lots of ideas, while at the same time making all of us feel welcome and making sure there was time for questions and discussion. I am terrible at organizing and decorating, but I came away with several ideas I feel certain I can implement! And it was fun!

I loved this experience! Whitney has so much insight into space-saving and she shares tons of examples in her beautiful home. This was a great experience to do while stuck inside and looking to make some home updates. She is also super nice and friendly!
