Baskets are useful and beautiful and add a natural, rustic touch to a space. Recently, I have been seeing baskets hung on walls in large groupings, and I love the bohemian vibe that they lend to a room and the unexpected texture and naturalness that they convey.
I am especially liking colorful African baskets like the ones below.
Aren’t they gorgeous? Baskets come in such a variety of price ranges–but I think with a little scouting you could make a grouping of them fairly economically. Keep an eye out for interesting baskets when you travel; a trip to a different region or country can be a good opportunity to pick up distinctive pieces for starting or adding to a collection.
Below is a picture of the gallery wall in our living room. I recently added the tortoise shell shaped basket to the wall, and I like the texture it adds. It is from the Nate Berkus collection for Target and happens to be on sale right now. Link here.
Would you consider hanging baskets on your walls?
