I found this photo and thought this was a great idea for anyone who has a TON of shoes and is looking for a place to store them. So if you have space at the top of a staircase for some cubbyholes to be built into the wall or a set of tall bookcases to be placed there, it's the perfect spot for that ever-growing shoe collection.
Will Wick is the force behind Wick Design Group. His San Francisco design firm is influenced by Brazilian modernist styles of Oscar Neimeyer, the timeless designs of Italian Gio Ponti and the classic, bold work of Francis Elkins. A style marker for the Will's work is the use of organic elements such as the raw almost primitive timber pieces.

Robyn Jaquet of the UK sent Jo and I an email about a French company that designs fabrics and soft furnishings. She found some items of theirs in a store near her work and fell in love with the fabulous colours and textures. They have an amazing website with gorgeous photos of their products. Thanks Robyn!
