Suit[case]s Me Fine


 Remember those large leather suitcases that your parents or grandparents used to wear may years ago and that are now a little ruined both by time and because they were totally relegated to some attic or garage? Pull them out!! They are absolutely fantastic in home decor serving as unexpected, original and irreverent bedside tables , combining antiquity to modernity and can liven up the decor of a home. They are priceless treasures that whist having a vintage look,they can also give new life to any corner where they are placed, because they can be quite simple, but certainly portray a very stylish accent!


Lembram-se daquelas malas de viagem grandes, em pele, que os vossos pais ou avós usavam há imensos anos atrás e que estão já um pouco carcomidas quer pelo tempo, quer porque foram totalmente relegadas para um qualquer sótão ou garagem? Vão buscá-las! São absolutamente fantásticas na decoração da casa servindo de mesas de cabeceira inesperadas, originais e irreverentes, aliam o antigo à modernidade e podem animar a decoração de uma casa. São tesouros inestimáveis que ao mesmo tempo que têm um ar vintage, dão uma vida nova a qualquer canto onde se coloquem, pois podem ser bastante simples, mas certamente transmitem um toque de estilo bastante acentuado.

  4. I love vintage suitcases! It's difficult to find ones that look 'right' though...

    I like the idea of painting them white and using them as a sideboard - makes them more uniform.
