The Ultimate Set-Up Guide for Your Dream Wall Decor
You are checking news daily, communicating with loved ones, and planning for months ahead. You, me, and billions of other people are spending more time in our homes. Your home is your work space and your place to rest after a long day. You cannot control this global phenomena but you can choose your home decor.
If you don’t have the energy for a complete home makeover, that’s okay. A blank wall space and a little creativity is all you need to show your home some love.
When you think wall decor, you might think framed art, wall storage, string lights, picture frames, and wall shelves. Why not try handmade, contemporary African baskets?
Each basket order creates jobs for 5,000 artisans in east Africa working to support their families. As you work remotely, you can look up to gorgeous, handwoven wall art. (They’re multifunctional--- you can use them as storage containers and decorative objectives on wall shelves).
As you shop at Target, West Elm, and Anthropologie, consider these high-quality pieces to create your own basket wall art without maxing out your credit card. There’s handwoven wall decor to show off boho, farmhouse, and coastal style. Add an accent color to a neutral space or warm, neutral pieces for a timeless look.
Ready to create your own basket wall but have no idea where to begin? Read on to learn about two simple wall art installations!
The Basket Wall Trio
You might be asking yourself, how do I hang wall art on my walls?
The easiest and most affordable way to decorate your walls is to select three amazing baskets for your chosen wall. Live in a small apartment? Have very little wall space? Not a problem! This gorgeous basket wall trio works in tight spaces and blank walls. Cluster baskets together or spread them apart depending on location and your style preference.
Start by choosing baskets of varying sizes and patterns. We especially recommend checking out our Sea Glass Collection for coastal blues. Prefer a timeless, neutral palette? Explore our Chic Obsidian Collection for classic black and white baskets.
Next, choose your canvas. What spot in your house needs extra love? Be sure that spot is well-lit with natural light, accent lighting, or pendant lighting.
Set up your own basket wall art above your accent chair and chair cushion in your cozy reading nook. Take reading or Netflix breaks to admire the intricate weaving pattern and vibrant colors.
Pick your accent decor baskets based on the color palette of your favorite home decorations. Feeling inspired by the colors of your accent lamps and lamp shades? We work with many color palettes. Mixing patterns is highly encouraged!
You might want to ask us, how do you hang wall art without nails? You might live in an apartment or want to decide your wall art placement. You can use command strips of varying sizes. Use larger ones for baskets that weight 5+ lbs.
Stay productive and focused even when working remotely. Use wall decor to transform your home office.
Want to add color to your office furniture? Hang our vibrant Utopia collection above your desk, office chair, and task lamp.
One way to style your basket wall art is by hanging the largest piece above the two smaller pieces, creating a diagonal triangle.
How high should you hang wall art? Place the lowest hanging basket at least 4-6 inches above furniture.
Match your wall art with your other office furniture and home accents for a polished look.

How much space should you leave in between baskets? We recommend 3 finger width apart.
