hey there! I'm monica 

I pride myself on making amazing style and design accessible for everyone, regardless of location, budget, or ability! My design philosophy is rooted in authenticity + attainability - If I can do it, you can too! My work has been featured in countless publications, but I take the most pride in homeowners that have been personally inspired by my DIY ideas and have tried something in their own homes!

I want a basket. A big basket. There is a big gaping hole in my living room, in my opinion, that needs to be filled with a beautiful, handwoven basket that can hold a few throws or blankets. But did you know that there are a million basket options? It’s overwhelming.

Here’s the space that needs to be dressed up:


I did some browsing, and found some really lovely possibilities.
A Beach Cottage traditional porch
I was definitely thinking that I wanted a basket, but this wooden box really got me thinking. But what I’m really hooked on is that beachy, coastal, cottagey look this picture has. Take all those things, throw in a bedroom and a kitchen, and you have my dream house.
The Old Painted Cottage traditional kitchen
I hadn’t considered a round basket, but the shape might really work in the space I have.

This is definitely my favorite basket from Pottery Barn, but I can not justify paying $189 for one. Or maybe I could save my pennies, and buy one in five years.

Another simple, basket that would easily fit the bill.
These restoration hardware baskets are super cool, and I love the dark color, which is the direction I’d like to head in my living room.
How can I ever choose?

  1. Those are adorable! One of my favorite baskets is kind of like the Pottery Barn one, but was much cheaper at Hobby Lobby near Easton. If you’ve never been, then you need to plan a trip. I love that store!!

  2. Sheryl,

    Hobby Lobby is a crafters dream! I went there only twice with Monica and loved it. I’ll need to take a trip there to check out the baskets. Thanks for the tip!
