If you’re looking for inspiration to achieve a more natural interior, baskets and bamboo are a great place to start. 2021 for me is all about the indoor zen vibes! And I’m currently obsessed with rattan furniture, wicker baskets and bamboo accessories.
Most of you by now will know Betty Bamboo, my gorgeous street found console table. But long before Betty and from the moment we began our bedroom refurb I new I wanted calming, natural tones and textures in the room. With an untreated wood finish to our self installed, slatted wardrobes and a combination of white fluffy and raw hemp materials on the bed and reading chair; baskets and bamboo were the perfect addition to lift what we had already installed.
The key I think of getting that perfectly eclectic balance is to shop around. The placement of natural looking pieces needs to also feel natural. Doing a haul of uniformed accessories can often look contrived. So, we shopped and looked around. With (pre lockdown) charity finds like the £1.00 bamboo plant pot above and our free street table added in to all the other beautiful bits and pieces we’ve acquired over the past year and a half.
Where To Shop The Look
This beautiful rope weave, handle jar was on sale at Asda for £5.00 and no matter how often we change up our shelf displays it always gets a look in! So as not to be too samey it’s great to throw in the occasional splash of colour. Like this unique, round basket. Perfect for picnics or just to hide away your beauty supplies! Kindly gifted to us by BasketBasket, the leather bound handles are divine. This ethically made, hand woven basket from Ghana feels more like a piece of art and adds life to our more muted tones.
Bringing back the balance is this large plain white weave basket we found in the middle of Lidl for less than a tenner! It’s perfect for housing all my graphics and art supplies. Currently out of stock you might also like this Dunelm alternative.
Another vibrant Basketbasket find were these hand woven giraffes (also gifted). They’re meant to be for the kids, but I keep stealing them as they’re just a joy to look at. Let’s face it they’re the perfect household pet! Made from raffia and straw in Madagascar.
At the minute I’m hoarding all my wicker and weave finds in my room until the kids become less felt tips pen happy! However, I’ve already plans to start adding in a few key finds into the living room. This seagrass hanging plant basket is currently hiding out but is due to go down stairs.
I’ll be pairing it with this absolute bargain found at Asda. This flower shaped, bamboo mirror was only £8, full price.
