    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.

    Wall Power

    Lately I’ve been stashing my probably too large collection of shoes under-the-bed storage and in a laundry basket under my desk. Obviously, neither of these is idea. One is hard to get to. The other is pretty unsightly. Now I find myself considering these industrial wall shelves as a real alternative. I’ve been a bit hesitant to put my shoes on shelves as not all of them are aesthetic winners. But I like the idea of mixing in boxes in which I could hide some of my more utilitarian pairs.  I think Ikea’s Grundtal Wall storage shelves would be a great option for pulling this off ($19.99 per shelf).

    A Storage Bed with Style

    As a small-space dweller I have been considering a bed with built in storage for awhile. The problem is most storage beds either look like they belong in a dorm or a beach cottage in Nantucket. That’s why I was happy to see this slightly more modern option from Serena and Lilly. I love the Parson-style, but not so much the wicker baskets. I suppose they could be replaced with something a bit sleeker. Sadly, this frame is only available in twin and full ($800 & $900 respectively).
