what color are the walls please?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

As mentioned above, these suitcases serve Lockette well, and as a bonus, they look very cute!
Stacking suitcases on top of one another is a nice vintage twist on the ending of nesting tables. Instead of the largest going on top, the largest goes on the bottom. However, the individual suitcases can still be used as little tables or surfaces and they can be configured in aesthetically pleasing ways.
Natalie Myers added this to Decorate With Vintage Suitcases
This stack isn't exactly uniform, but there is a cohesive color palette and along with the collection of embroidery hoops, the mismatched nature seems intentional.

If you still have odds and ends that just don't look great displayed in the open, some vintage suitcases can lend a warm, traveled feel and do double duty providing some extra storage. Stacking them also allows for them to function as a side table.

What is it? Vintage suitcases.What is it doing now? Serving as storage and as a table at Etsy artist Lockette's studio. She also uses them to transport and display her wares at shows. Requirements: I guarantee you that someone in your family, in spite of having used a suitcase with wheels for years, has a stack of these collecting dust somewhere. Clean out the musty smell by throwing a dryer sheet inside each for a few days, then airing them out outdoors.

I love the look and idea of vintage suitcases for holding paperwork, etc - cute, speaks to my love of travel and of antiques, and you can close them up when company comes over. I'm a little worried that in our house it will just look cluttered, like we just left out our old suitcases...
