I love baskets…baskets of all kinds. They are so versatile in decorating a home, aren’t they? Used for storage, planters, laundry, eggs, blankets, flowers…and the list goes on & on.
So, I thought I’d give you a few pointers on what I look for in a basket.
A basket must be useful…a have a few go-to baskets that I can grab on my way out the door to gather flowers from the garden. The basket above is from Vivi et Margot, an online French decor shop.
The basket below, is from Ivy and Stone Home, a local shop...which will be opening an online shop soon. I like how this one looks as a centerpiece holding herbs and fresh hydrangeas.
I adore a galvanized basket, or one with a cool handle. You can find this one below HERE.
It makes a great space for corralling dishes or spices, and has great handles.
Vintage baskets are probably my favorite…especially a hand woven one.
This harvest basket below is perfect for displaying fresh cut branches or stacks of quilts and blankets in the winter. It is one of my larger baskets, and makes quite a statement.
Lastly, market baskets are all the rage right now…of course! They have a soft look, perfect for any cottage or farmhouse decor. This one below is from The Freckled Hen Farmhouse, and there are so many different styles available. Market baskets have many fabulous uses, in addition to gathering veggies at the market.
So what do you look for in a basket? I’d love to hear your favorites
