When I think of decorating with baskets, I am reminded of that terrible 70's trend of hoarding dusty baskets in the small space between your upper kitchen cabinets and ceiling. These were usually paired with a fake plant or a Grecian style wine jug. Oh, it was awful. Remember?
But it doesn't have to be like that. Baskets are great for all sorts of practical storage uses in the house. I use them tucked at the feet of chairs to hold books and magazines and also for linen closet storage. Here are some images from my dream file that make the case for baskets in the home - I especially love the huge basket used at the end of the bed.
