I should really be sponsored by a basket company. I flipping love them.
Possibly not as much as lovely Lisa from Edit 58 (see her home tour here), but a LOT. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – there really is no finer form of storage. Even my son has caught the bug, and can be found toting a basket of (what else?) cars around. We had to do an emergency dash to the corner shop last week (note to self: you are not yet a sufficiently organised cook to live without a corner shop, Natasha) – wearing an odd assortment of flung-on footwear and coats. Just as we were about to leave, the small chap halts proceedings, disappears briefly, returns with this basket. Atta boy.
I find them here. I find them there. I find them pretty much everywhere. I’d happily splurge at Edit 58, Wood/Grey and Artisanne, but I save at H&M Home, Zara Home, Ikea, Laura Ashley, La Redoute and Homebase. (I see the panic that flashes across my husband’s face if we have to make a trip to the latter and my eyes slide towards the baskets. I see it, but I do not heed it. Minimalist I am not.)
Here’s just a few I’d like to add to my collection, space and husband permitting…
