DECORATE WITH BOXES AND BASKETS
STYLISH STORAGE: HELPERS FOR MORE ORDER
Almost everyone has them somewhere in the apartment: the drawer in which all sorts of small items end up that would otherwise have no place. Otherwise, many small things tend to spread throughout the room and quickly create a mess. This need not be! For order, storage and decoration: beautiful baskets and boxes are real all-rounders and can be used in very different ways. Tips on how to make every room a little neater and prettier can be found here.
TIDY BATHROOM WITH VELVET AND WOOD
Lots of little things come together, especially in the bathroom: whether toothbrushes, tweezers, shower gel, soap or towels, everything needs a place. Smaller baskets and boxes are good so that you can find bits and bobs quickly, as they also brighten up the otherwise sterile bathroom and bring cosiness into the room.
Dark gray velvet baskets look reserved and yet classy . The nice thing about them is that colorful towels come into their own! You can store soaps, cotton swabs or jewelry in pretty wooden boxes, so that they are protected from moisture and dust.
ORDER ON THE SHELF: THESE BOXES FIT ANYTIME AND ANYWHERE
Boxes and baskets don't always have to be on the floor. Simply loosen up your shelf with it! Minimalist wooden boxes fit wonderfully in the living room or bedroom and also serve as a decorative bookend. There is room for candles, card games or sewing kits and create a tidy atmosphere.
LIGHT WOOD FOR A SCANDINAVIAN FLAIR IN THE KITCHEN
Square boxes are also great in the kitchen. Models made of light wood with stylish patterns and in delicate pastel tones look friendly - and are also fully in line with the Scandi trend. You can use the practical organization aids for all kinds of odds and ends such as spice jars or to stow fresh kitchen towels. If you want to store food in it, make sure when buying that the boxes are suitable for use with food!
URBAN JUNGLE: WITH PLANT BASKETS FOR A GREEN LOOK
Baskets not only create order, they are also wonderful decorative elements and make your plant collection an eye-catcher. Beautiful baskets - for example with a seagrass border to match the cool boho or natural urban jungle furnishing style - are available in different sizes. You will find the right basket for every plant - whether small or large. Extremely practical: baskets with handles are great for moving your plants around easily and conveniently.
EASY-PEASY DIY: THIS IS HOW BASKETS GET THAT CERTAIN SOMETHING
Tassels, tassels or pompoms? No matter what you call them, they are colorful, look funny and can be made really quickly. Whether you want to make your baskets a little more colorful, give a birthday present a personal touch or just want to get rid of leftover wool - you don't need much for the cheerful tassels.
All you need is some wool, a pair of scissors, and a couple of safety pins to secure it in place.
First, put on the yarn: To do this, wind the string evenly around four of your fingers. If you want to make larger tassels, you can also use a piece of cardboard and wrap the wool around it.
Wind up the wool until the tassel has reached the thickness you want. Either count or move forward by feeling so that each tassel looks very individual. Then cut the thread about ten centimeters long and pass it through between your top two fingers.
Once the upper part of the tassel is separated from the lower part, take the tassel from your hand and wrap enough wool around it until everything is tight.
To give the tassels their typical fringes, cut open the lower, longer part at the end. You can then trim the fringes so that they are all about the same length.
And the tassels are ready! With a safety pin you can now pierce the inside of the basket and easily attach the tassels to the outside. Let off steam with the colors, so your basket becomes an eye-catcher.
We hope you enjoy doing handicrafts, cleaning up and decorating!
