Home decor: I am currently loving…

I am currently loving woven baskets hung on the wall or anything that looks a bit tribal or boho chic.  Blame it on the fact that I came of age in the seventies and had a beautiful gallery wall of baskets in the den in my first home, along with a rust/orange chenille loveseat and a brown chenille chair and ottoman.  Amazingly, this is all back in style and I am in love with orange again and those walls of baskets.

Fortunately, this is a very affordable trend.  You can purchase mass-produced items at stores like Target and World Market or you can put your $ to good use and purchase hand-made items from sites like allacrossafrica.org; or if you are lucky enough to have collected these from your own travels you have an instant wall arrangement.  Take a look at these photos and tell me if this is a trend you could incorporate into your own home?

Colorful and fun

    Me, too, Lulu. I use them to serve during dinner parties, corral items in a desk drawer and certainly to decorate a wall. Old hippies never die!!

    I’m crazy for baskets with interesting pattern and texture no matter how they are presented. On a wall they add new interest.
