Saturday’s “Designing with Vintage” with Gail Smith-Peterson
Storage for 2015
We will all be packing away our holiday decorations and accouterments this week. With 2015 around the corner it’s time to freshen up and edit our spaces for enjoying the calm & cozy winter days. It’s the perfect time to re-think ordinary storage. Utilizing vintage items for storage is a cool way to incorporate a solution into your decor. Shop our Antique and Vintage Baskets + Utility and Storage selection.
I have several vintage suitcases that I stack. They are pure storage. Each one stores holiday contents inside and marked by little tags I made. They can be moved anywhere, and used for anything you like to keep readily available. The wall of suitcases is a really cool idea too.
Vintage crates, wooden boxes, trunks, metal baskets, lockers and large basket trunks. Adding some wheels is also a smart idea if the contents is heavy. Any of these would be great to use.
My design tip: Storage is essential for everyone. If your going to buy something, think outside the box and find something antique or vintage that adds character to your space.
Let’s savor these last days of the season, as we begin to prepare for an exciting New Year.
