    Imagine you have an insanely cute 1920s cottage near the beach on the Venice canals in L.A. It's every Angeleno's dream, right? Except, add in the fact that you're six-foot tall, live with your 6-foot-2 fiancé, and have a (not small) dog — and the space is a mere 362-square-feet. Now, that's where your picture perfect fantasy gets a little more complicated.

    But, #TheTinyCanalCottage residents Whitney Leigh Morris and Adam Winkleman have not only accepted the challenge of living in cramped quarters — they've become veritable small space sorcerers. In fact, they've mastered the art of downsizing so much that some of their built-in storage is completely empty. (Impressive!)

    Naturally, we had to find out all of their secrets. We chatted with Morris to get the inside scoop on how she managed to create such a stylish home with minimal square footage. Ahead, the stylist and consultant reveals her 17 best small space tips to help you make the most of your own home. One hint: You'll never look at a bookcase the same way again.
