{storage inspiration: on display}


. . . if the glass-front cabinet in the living room were not filled with books, old photographs and love letters tied with ribbon, it would be filled with shoes, shoes, shoes -- only there would not be room for his things as here, and of course, everything would be heels . . .

{p.s.} more shoe storage here

i do that too!!

i store my shoes on a white bookshelf with adjustable sheles. that way, i can allow for the perfect amount of height for boots, and save space when storing flats :]

i love the idea of storing shoes in a cabinet though. doors would be nice...

So pretty! I love glass cabinets but I'm the opposite of organized-I need to be able to hide my clutter!

Absolutely! :) You know how much I love this idea already, and I had to smile when you mentioned there would be only room for pretty pretty heels! Why else would you show them off in a display if they weren't beautiful heels?? :)

I hope you are having a lovely weekend, Roséline!

Lovely. I am obsessed with storage and particularly the creative kind. Difficult to say whether I would be more delighted with a rock, a birkin or some beautiful cabinets ! More more more please, Jx

Charming IF you own 10 pair of shoes..I have virtual shoe store (yes its a combination of being a shoe fanatic and not knowing when to get rid of them) so I would need a monstrous armoire to house all my shoes, the goodies, the oldies and of course a reserve spot for future additions!

Those old metal cabinets are so much fun... With nothing in them they have personality......This was a great example of use.!Maryanne ;)

heather -- thank you! xx

meenal @ maison marigold -- you as well :)

bostonista -- always love closed/hidden storage as well, but adore the idea of having a few places where things can be stored and kept on display at the same time, especially if the display were pretty shoes...

rachel -- ♥♥♥

then enchanted home -- am the same with shoes -- thinking the cabinet could be saved for only the most favourite and prettiest pairs?
