I am ready for a little show and tell!
My new apartment reminds me of being on a large boat/yacht...and I like that. I've got three funky little windows in my new "cabin studio". (which is also my living room, library sewing room and study/office @ about 12'8" x 14'8") They remind me of portholes, only rectangular in shape. My ceilings are low at 7', giving it a cozy "boat" feeling. :)
Storage is at a premium, to say the least. In this photo, I've got a group of four vintage suitcases stacked under one of the portholes. The beauty on the top was given to me as a moving gift by my friend, Dana at dapoppins. (Thank you, dear friend!) It's an old sample suitcase from Samsonite, which highlights the different colors that were available at the time. Pretty awesome, huh?
To the left of the suitcases is a vintage little accent table with a drawer. A tower of 13 vintage jewelry boxes is stacked atop.(I found 3 more to add to the collection since these photos were taken, yippee!)
|Yes, the suitcase is upside-down. :) I'll deal with that later!|
Under the table are three plastic sewing boxes from the 70's in avocado green & harvest gold. Gotta love those! ♡
So, all in all, in this in one little bit of square footage, I've managed to add 24 pieces of storage to my cabin studio, without sacrificing the cuteness that inspires me!
I'm loving this HUGE to tiny downsizing adventure more and more every day. It's a challenge for sure, but I've always enjoyed a crafty challenge of any sort! That's how I'm framing this new phase in my life.
Do you have any small living storage tips? I'll take all the ideas I can? Thank you so much, friend.
