As an aging flower child from the seventies I have had a long love affair with baskets. They are a great resource for decorative yet functional storage and add wonderful texture to any style decor. And, while not a fan of plates hung on the wall (with the exception of this eclectic arrangment from West Elm)
I do love an arrangement of baskets hung on the wall. Below are some very stylish examples of baskets used as wall decor:
This wall grouping is the perfect compliment to the bamboo style headboard and traditional side table from Bunny Williams Home.
The ultimate wall grouping, this works because all the baskets are in the same color family and as the other furnishings in the room. You can imagine that a multi-colored arrangment like this would be overwhelming!
A colorful wall arrangement that enhances the furniture style and overall color scheme of this room. One of my all-time favorites.
Colorful and very bohemian, this arrangement of baskets is so much more effective in this casual home than a large painting would be.
This appears to be an old tobacco basket but, whatever it is, it is perfectly scaled as an above the bed piece of art. And for those of us who live in earthquake country, soft enough to fall on our heads during a shaker!
How do you feel about baskets as wall decor? Do you share my passion?
