Heavenly Homes – Storage Should be Pretty

February 2, 2012

Afternoon all. Heavenly Homes today is all about delightful storage. Delightful being the issue, as I think it is all too easy to buy a boring Ikea cupboard or chest of drawers (me included here!), when there are so many other options to make your storage solutions a little bit different – don’t necessarily have to cost more either. Why not get creative and kill two birds with one stone by hiding away all your treasures and junk but at the same time creating a pretty feature?!

You can paint and decorate your current furniture (attaching new knobs & handles always looks good), buy new, go to car boot sales and antique fairs for your gorgeous vintage finds – eBay is good for this too. You can usually find what you are looking somewhere at the right price and then its up to you to customise to suit your room. A few of my favourite storage ideas below –

I think these are all fab and so much prettier and more interesting than a boring cupboard or box! I especially love the shoe cabinet at the top and the Louis chest, which is your favourite?

I hope you are all well today? I am a bit tired after a million meetings all over London yesterday, after which I went straight to the LiliYang launch party – they are a new designer handbag brand with beautiful bags and accessories – want them all! Will be posting more about the bags and the launch in the next few days.

Have a lovely afternoon and I shall be back soon 🙂 xx

    Wow, the first cabinet is so great – I never would have thought of using it for shoes. And I love the seafoam green bathroom cabinet with all of the white inside. Gorgeous!

      Shoes are much more important than glasses! 😉 xx
