The springy greens and moody blues in this guest bedroom could easily become overpowering if not balanced properly. To keep the high energy hues in check tonally, accents of white were used including: the window trim in the adjacent powder room; the whitewashed basket pendant along the ceiling; the upholstery of the seagrass armchair cushions; and the linen slipcover of the sleeper sofa.
If your crib is situated in a dark portion of your nursery, a pendant light may be a great option. For safety, hang the pendant on the far end of the crib and high enough that’s it’s out of baby’s reach. Woven, basket-like pendants made of materials like wicker or rattan are totally on-trend, and their natural color can blend with just about any color palette.
For lighting in this dining room, designer Leanne Ford chose a trio of black, basket-weave pendant lights. Because their texture is so light, sunlight filters through them and they feel delicate instead of heavy.
A corner of this master bedroom was turned into a sweet reading nook with a simple chair and a twinkly overhead light. A houseplant adds organic texture and the basket is an easy (and tidy) place to stash a blanket.
Pineapple print wallpaper and a bold yellow-and-black color scheme ensure dinner conversation never gets too serious in this playful beach house dining room. Oversized basket pendant lights add to the relaxed nature of the home.
This sweet nursery blends baby blue into a single accent wall without letting the color overwhelm the room. A whimsy pendant light and rug soften the space, while the woven basket offers additional storage beside the crib.
This elegant nursery features a two-toned color palette with light green and white walls and pops of pink in the plush area rug and pouf. A woven pendant light with tassels provides beautiful texture overhead and compliments the woven basket beside the white crib.
This fun and eclectic family kitchen combines design styles and offers whimsical details that give it a lighthearted flair. A long island features a contemporary waterfall top, while basket-style pendants bring a casual vibe. Open shelving hangs against a backdrop of colorful Spanish tile. Beyond the dining space, an indoor swing is a playful touch.
