Junk in your Trunk?

Well for me, the last two weeks have been filled with last-minute, totally panicked dissertation writing and no where near enough time drooling over beautiful home ware. But fear not, whilst indulging in some severe procrastination and flicking through Wallpaper magazine, I read a very interesting article on The Berkley Fashion Trunk. The five star luxury hotel based in Knightsbridge London, offers guests staying in the Berkley Suites access to the trunk, which is filled with the most fabulous vintage jewellery and accessories, including a 60s Christian Dior necklace and a 50's Monroe-style mink stole. The trunk was designed by renowned British trunk designers Norton MacCullough & Locke and is is a stunner. The article also featured a vintage Louis Vuitton trunk, which yes makes a fabulous piece of luggage, but can also make for a quirky bedside cabinet or coffee table. I also thought this was a really interesting mix of fashion and home. Personally, I love when the two collide, do you?
