Bins and baskets encourage little ones to put their toys away when playtime is over. Fabric bins and baskets are as practical as they are pretty. Since the baskets are soft, they're easy for little hands to handle. Plus, the texture and pattern of fabric baskets can add depth to a room or enhance its overall color scheme.
A ladder shelf creates a convenient spot for nursery necessities. Simple touches can transform plain baskets into stylish accessories to create sophisticated storage. Inexpensive fabric baskets can be dressed up with ribbon to store clothes and shoes in a child's room or nursery.
In the master bedroom, designers have created a focal point in this elegant, neutral space. The wood accent wall brings texture and dimension to the contemporary bedroom, while light, neutral fabrics and an animal skin rug add softness to the space. A large window allows in plenty of natural light, and a modern table in the entryway provides additional storage.
This fireplace mantel, decorated for winter, mixes different textural elements, including a wreath made of old sweaters, vintage bottles and a basket of antique fabric balls. A monogrammed plate adds a personal touch.
For this city nursery designed by Interior Design Fair, a large armoire with sliding pine doors and open shelves on each side provides flexible toy storage.

Shabby chic is the look HGTV fan rosevinecottage was going for when she decorated for Christmas. The tabletop pink feather tree features satin pink ribbon and a silver-beaded garland. Shoe and purse ornaments, along with a pink basket tree base with a delicate flower fabric, add feminine touches.
“It seems counterintuitive, but color and pattern chaos in my office motivates me,” says Sonal, who designs textiles. That explains the eclectic combination of woven baskets on the wall and layered rugs on the floor. The desk, with pyramid legs and a sleek glass top, has big-time presence. Adding to the glam mishmash: orange poufs from Surya, a blue-and-white ikat chair from Anthropologie, and curtains made with indigo-dyed fabric by Lewis & Sheron Textiles.
A padded seat is just one of the extra features in the Strongway Deluxe Rolling Garden Seat. The seat also swivels and can be adjusted, and you can steer when seated by using the turnbar (one of two that come with the seat). You can store items in the wire basket, tray and fabric pouches around the seat. It's sold by Northern Tool & Equipment.
