I've got a soft spot in my heart for vintage luggage. Although, as much as I love a nice Royal Traveller suitcase, I much prefer actually traveling with something that has at least two wheels. So, I've turned to these Apartment Therapy House Tours for some inspiration in turning my luggage collection into part of my apartment's decor.
Closet space is always at a minimum, and what we have just doesn't offer enough space to store all of the stuff we love and refuse to part with. So, I thought, why not store some out of season items, such as scarves, mittens, and knit hats, inside the suitcases I've collected? Judging from these photos, a varied collection fills empty corners quite nicely, and when stacked, makes a nice visual, and even useful arrangement. Check out that makeshift nightstand! Nifty and pretty.
