Bas­ket ba­sics

> Wo­ven bas­kets are truly mul­ti­func­tional dec­o­ra­tive items which not only add tex­ture to a room but are great for stor­ing items such as kids’ toys, books, sports gear and shoes.

> Try group­ing bas­kets in clus­ters of three to cre­ate vis­ual in­ter­est in a room. Se­lect a trio in dif­fer­ent heights and sizes and po­si­tion a large one at the back and smaller ones in front.

> Bas­kets can eas­ily be painted us­ing a test pot or two if you want to give them a new look.
