It’s almost Friday — and almost Thanksgiving! 🙂 I’m so excited, as there is so much to look forward to, and I am in full-on nesting mode and having a blast. I was perusing the clearance aisles of HomeGoods the other day and found a large basket on super discount — it was only $12. I knew just what I was going to do with it!
I love that the basket is dark and adds a new texture to the room. You really can’t have enough baskets, people. Corralling dog toys, shoes!, odds and ends, receipts, napkins… I can think of about a million ways to use baskets, and I bet you can, too. But this was a new way to use a basket for me — and I love it!
The poinsettia adds that touch of red that I was told every room needs when I was in design school. 😉 I’m not sure how long these are supposed to live, but I hope it lasts through the season. I’ve been good about watering it, but not over-watering it, so we will see.
This got me thinking about baskets and plants as a pair… I see this everywhere — Pinterest, design magazines, catalogs… And I see it in different styles. Ultra modern aesthetics usually use a more saggy or casual basket, and with traditional vignettes, I see a lot of structured baskets. But that doesn’t mean you can’t break the rules! Do it — I dare you!
