If you live in an apartment building, you probably don't get to have an iconic free-standing mailbox. Mail is likely delivered to you in a bank of locking boxes. But that doesn't mean you can't enjoy the red flag and familiar shape of an old-fashioned mailbox in the decor of your apartment interior.
In the home pictured, a standard mailbox has been mounted to the wall just inside the front door. It's worked into a grouping of pictures on the wall and we think it would work wonderfully as a landing strip, providing a bit of storage for dropping off keys - and yes, mail - when you first step in the door.
What do you think of mounting a mailbox on the wall inside the door? We can imagine it helping with all sorts of organizational issues. If you have bills you need to remember to stick in the mail when you leave the house, keep them in the box with the red flag up. Have a message you need to leave for someone else in your household? Start a system where the red flag up alerts them to a message inside.
