This Sunset Magazine photo feature proves that you don't need to have a big home to have big style.

The home in question is a tiny, cottage-style 900-square-foot home in Santa Monica. Starting with the 1930s floorplan, owner Julie Hart raised the roof, added new windows and created bright, loft-like rooms.

The white-themed living room looks open and bright. It's anchored by an colorful floor rug and has leather ottomans scattered about for extra seating.

Barstools and recessed lighting streamlines the kitchen's style.

A contemporary swing arm wall light beside the bed makes the most of the small bedroom space. We like it all!
