Wrapped Up In Your Armoires.

I love vintage armoires. Not just for their ornate style, but for their versatility and amazing storage capacity. I've had this old one (above) for years, and it stashes away all my handbags, scarves and accessories, as well as the ridiculous number of shoes I store there. When I was browsing through the pages of an old VT Wonen magazine, I couldn't help but notice the multitude of armoires gracing its pages, and the many uses these European homes put them to. Take a look for some inspirational and unique storage ideas.

Linens and glassware look so pretty peeking through the glass paned doors.



Not your typical armoires, and I love the look.


A fun idea to create a cozy bedroom nook.



Old display cases with glass doors work well, too for storing pretty collectibles.



Even this old glass cabinet makes for fun and extra storage space.

nothing beats the great beauty of an armoire - except maybe all the storage space it offers!
