Basket walls are a great way to add some texture and interest to your home. Any collection, when displayed en masse can add emphasis to it. The variety of baskets available to showcase makes collecting the baskets a joy!
Baskets can be a great souvenir to bring home from your travels, they pack easily into a suitcase and you don’t have to worry about them breaking like pottery might. Other places to look for potential basket options are in the serving sections of home décor stores and of course, your favourite thrift stores can be a great source without breaking the bank!
The key to a stunning basket wall is a variety of sizes, textures and if you want, colour, too. Odd numbers display better than even numbers, it tends to be more pleasing to the eye. You can fill that awkward wall above the staircase, do a display over a piece of furniture or fill an entire wall.
The best way to figure out how you want to display your baskets is to start by laying them out on the floor and moving them around until you have a configuration that makes sense for the wall space. Basket wall arranging is very free-form – the more organic and asymmetrical, the better!
