Rattan, grasses and bamboo lend a great beach vibe to the home. No matter what type of natural materials are used to create wicker baskets, they’re awesome for decorative storage, and so versatile with many styles to choose from. Target has a nice selection of wicker baskets, so has World Market, West Elm, Pottery Barn and Serena & Lily (links will drop you right into their basket department). And check out One Kings Lane for sale items too.
Entry storage nook seen at HGTV.
The wicker baskets on the wall are from Kohl’s via Aimee Weaver, and the entryway with the cute blue basket is by designer Tracey Rapisardi. I’m pretty sure the basket is custom painted to match the rest of the decor. To create the look, check out Kohl’s set of Blue Wicker Baskets.
I’m liking the shopping style basket idea with handles. You can find some cool ones at Fair Trade Gifts & Home Decor, and West Elm has pretty “bag” basket also. To see the rest of this adorable beach cottage, head here.
Update: Or get Pottery Barn’s cute Adorned Woven Baskets. New for Spring 2015!
I’ve always loved the look of woven storage coffee tables. I guess this is more of a trunk than a basket though. Sanibel Trunk Coffee table available at Soft Surroundings. You can tour this home at Completely Coastal.
Here the chunky wicker baskets are used at the foot of the bed to hold pillows and throws. If you prefer chunky square, take a look at Horchow’s Woven Baskets.
Another chunky basket. Great way to casually store towels in the bathroom.
Also fun, and definitely works with the beach theme, dip dye baskets. Seen at Laura Ashley UK, but not available in their US online store. So you have to DIY Dip a Basket! It’s hard not to fall in love with wicker baskets. They more than just complement the beach theme, they enhance it!
