    Somebody Make Me One of These

    Yesterday I ordered way more toilet paper online than I have room to store in my apartment, because savings. Today I run across this Cloud Toilet Paper holder by Bertrand Jayr and Lyon Bétonon. I would love to have one of these to free up some cabinet space. Alas, they don’t sell these on Amazon. Via Awesome Products.

    The Accordion Basket is Back

    I saw these accordion baskets last year at Anthropologie. Of course, by the time I decided that I, too, might want to store picturesque rolls of twine on the wall, they were complete sold out. But they’re back! $36-$58 at you-know-where.

    Face It

    I’m always on the lookout for cute trinket dishes Like this Tuesday Bassen dish from Urban Outfitters, $35. I keep at least one in every room. They’re a great way to leave your stuff all over the house without it looking like you leave your stuff all over the house.

    Cactus Tin

    Super cute metal cactus tin from H&M Home, $12.95. Unfortunately, H&M has yet to offer online sales of their home goods, so you’ll have to find a store near you.

    Open House

    I love this open, airy wardrobe-alternative from the Luona Shop (€ 309.00). Unfortunately, their web site doesn’t appear to offer international shipping, but this piece is simple enough that you might be able to do it yourself. Via vosgesparis.

    Make it a Double

    This beechwood coffee scoop pulls double duty as a bag clip. Which comes in handy since I recently learned I’m not supposed to be keeping my coffee beans in the freezer. $12 each.

    Under the Bed Storage

    I’ve seen vintage luggage used as storage in the past, but for some reason it hadn’t occurred to me how well it would work under a bed without a bed skirt. You can just see a lovely vintage case peeking out on the left side above. It’s just a much crisper look than the fabric under-bed storage options I’ve been using for shoes and off season clothing. Below image via.

    I’ll be keeping my eyes peeled at garage and estate sales, but you can find tons of vintage luggage over at Etsy.
