suitcase halves as shelves! i have not seen them used this way before (usually the suitcases are cut in half horizontally while closed--these are halved by removing the hinges, which keeps the structure intact).
What a gorgeous loft-style bedroom. I particularly love the whitewashed exposed brick walls and the low-lying mattress bed. The addition of the slim staircase leading to a tiny dressing space is just gorgeous and such a great use of space.
