Vintage suitcases are all the rage these days, and I feel like I’ve seen them in every possible reiteration: nightstands, pet beds, end tables – even planters. Yet after stumbling upon this image of Ki Nassauer’s living room, I’ll never look at an average suitcase DIY the same way:
Yes, that’s right. Vintage suitcases turned into shelving! Genius idea, and brilliant execution. I love how the vintage tones and textures of the suitcase sing against a muted blue wall, perfectly styled with quirky accessories and a mid-century credenza. The look just screams personal style, doesn’t it?

… and I'm not talking for your next voyage abroad. Have you seen Lotty Lindeman's interior smarts? A fresh furnishings genius based in The Netherlands, Lotty transforms the everyday with beauty, function and craft. Currently, I'm swooning over her lovely suitcase storage options worthy of an art installation (or, I suppose, any hallway in the world!):
Created in 2009 and titled "Tassenkast", the solution is crafted out of wood, fabric and panels. I love that each suitcase presents a movable storage function that's as playful as it is inviting.
Brilliant, Lotty! Just brilliant.
