I saw this genius display at Anthropologie recently - but, really, ALL of their in- store displays are genius. So creative and inspiring. This one was an old metal bed (or possibly cot) frame, hung horizontally and used as a pin/message/inspiration/calendar board. One of those "Why have I not thought of that?" moments.
I've attached a few more ideas in the same vein. I'm always all for out-of-the-ordinary design, and if combines with storage, even better!
