{of new & far-off places}

Have always been fond of suitcases for all the memories of adventures of new and far-off places . . . here, a vintage suitcase at the foot of the bed adds a worldly feeling of well-travelled nostalgia . . .

. . . while a stack of plywood cases, {similar to the handmade birch ones featured earlier}, make perfect places for storing foreign currencies, city guides, and memories.

Joanna -- so beautifully said, and couldn't agree more :)

Elvia -- thanks so much! Traveling, yes, but not until the summer, unfortunately.

Jessica -- certain the months will fly by and you'll be leaving in no time . . .

I feel travel nostalgia too! These sets of old suitcases are lovely. Mismatched ones would look great too. :)

i have far too many vintage suitcases...now if only they matched or at least matched my color scheme so i can put them out, i have a great matching grey set of a suitcase and train case but they are holding sheets in my closet, and another bright bright pink one holding warm clothes. cute ways to store things!

Love those plywood cases - think there is something similar at the Conran Shop

I wouldn't have even thought of that idea with the suitcases but you're right. It does add a little more depth to the room.
