Woven baskets have been used so much frequently- I feel like everywhere I look and I wanted to share with you why I just love them so so much! They bring warmth, texture, and so much versatility into your home. In our house, I use them for storage and for plants. I know you are probably wondering what I mean by plants ( I will explain). You can also put pillows, blankets, toys, and even toilet paper inside of them. It is a decorative way to display and organize so many things. It is a win-win. I mean why keep toilet paper in a closet where no one in your family can see it which means they will never switch out a new roll when that is needed. Hahaha, we have ALL been there. Keep it out using a pretty storage solution and you won’t run into that being a problem as frequently.
One of the first ways that I started incorporating baskets into our home was by using them as planter holders for all of the larger plants in our home. I was never a huge fan of the large pots that I saw at the store because I love a neutral so those types of pots were not readily available as often especially in New England. You can get these baskets anywhere really which is the great part about it. Target, Amazon & HomeGoods are my go-to places to find them! They come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. They are reasonable and really make any room look so elevated. Here is an example of how I use the baskets in our upstairs hallway and living room.
Other common ways we use them in our home:
• Extra pillows
• Dog toys
Another great way to use woven baskets with handles is for magazines as you can see, I have styled above. They are perfect for those moments when you don’t feel like cleaning up and are having company over but you want to pick up quickly and make everything look put together.
Here is a roundup of some of my favorites and they are all very reasonable as I know these can be pretty pricey. Enjoy styling and be sure to tag me on Instagram: athomewithjordan.
