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.
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.
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.
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.
A square wood-topped island centers this traditional white kitchen and offers contrast to the yellow mosaic tile backsplash and ivory glass-front cabinets. The brown-and-gold window valance and glass light pendant continue the traditional vibe.
Contemporary open living room and dining area features handwoven baskets and a textured wood coffee table for storage, a large gray sofa, hardwood floors to match the stained beams, and geometric pendant lights.
The breakfast nook in this masculine kitchen is highlighted by the natural light from the windows. The dark, rich furniture, wicker basket hanging on the wall and the vintage, industrial pendant light add warm masculinity to the space, creating a bright, inviting eating area for this bachelor pad.
This view of the hallway offers a sneak peek through the sliding wood door into a bedroom with blue curtains. Blue accented baskets in the hallway connect the spaces. A black farmhouse pendant light coordinates with the door hardware and a large art print completes the look.
