[The Look] Basket Wall Display

I love the look of beautiful baskets artfully arrange on a wall.  With an assortment of textures, colors and shapes they are versatile and can enhance a variety of styles-- From rustic and natural; to clean and contemporary; to bold and modern.  Whatever your style, baskets as wall art definitely adds character to a space.

After coveting basket "wall art" for a while now, I decided to go for it.  At first I was thinking of doing a display over the living room mantel (still may do that), but I decided that I wanted something eye-catching  and unique for the busiest room in our house-- the kitchen.

For the kitchen nook, I chose to use Tonga and Binga Baskets that were handwoven by traditional village weavers in Africa.  With their natural texture, neutral colors and graphic patterns, they add a beautiful and unique quality to an otherwise bland area.  I think these baskets do a great job of adding interest without overwhelming the narrow wall space.

I purchased these baskets online and had a really great buying experience. I also have some basket hanging tips to share. I'll be back later with the full details.

Have a nice weekend!
