Other Decor That Is Right On Trend


Birds, birds and more birds are perfectly perfect for this spring!  Here's how you can bring a winged friend into your entryway:

Bring birds in through fabrics-so fun to use in an entry way!
You can get this fabric through Kuhns&Heller.

 Try reupholstering a bench cushion or pillow or two in this adorable bold Kasmir fabric.

Bird decor can be found every where!  

Another way to bring the bird theme is by adding a bit of a bird habitat, like a lantern or bird cage!


Birds are always in style, so of course, this Yellow Bird Cage from Nordstrom makes a great addition to an entryway!


LOVE THIS IDEA!!

Mix metal baskets with your woven ones!  Fill them with ornaments for Christmas, and see what else you can add to them for other seasons (like lemons and limes for the summer, and apples for the fall-use faux fruit of course!)

The key to creating a good basket arrangement is to keep it interesting.  Make sure the baskets have: 

  • Different shapes, tones and sizes
  • Made of different materials
  • Odd numbers work well
Love these funky pink baskets from Serena & Lilly!


DIY PROJECT THAT ROCKS



Kick up the boldness of a wicker basket by painting parts of it.  Try turquoise stripes, a red cross sign, or anything you can think of!  It's so easy.  All you need is:

  • painters tape
  • some paint 
  • paint brush

*you can also use spray paint

Take any old woven basket you have laying around the house, or buy a new one, then have fun adding any color to it, creating a unique work of art! 

And don't forget how useful a big woven basket can be!
