We’ve never been much for flat gallery walls- bring on the dimension please! From masks to textiles, and even jewelry, gallery walls are just more interesting and dynamic with multi-dimensional objects added to the mix. We especially dig using basket collections on the wall- they bring in so much texture, pattern, and even color, plus- you can actually see them when they’re on the wall, rather than stacked up on a shelf somewhere.
Dabito has been putting Tonga baskets, rounded up on his travels, to good use in his home. Don’t they look just stunning against his deep blue dining room walls? It’s really easy to hang your baskets on the wall- either put a nail directly through the basket (this works best for baskets with a tight weave), or loop a small length of wire through the basket, and twist the ends together to make a little hanger.
Even if you don’t have a huge collection of baskets, you can still add a few in with other art and objects! Keeping to a cohesive color palette, like we did in this home we worked on last year, will keep things looking collected, even with a mix of pattern and textures.
Ready to try your own basket gallery wall? We’ve rounded up some of our favorites in a new Etsy Treasury. Happy hanging!
