Design Mistake: Different Walls, Same Art Configurations (aka It’s Time To Bring Life To Your Walls)
Sources: TV Console (same) | Chandelier (Satin Bronze) | Molded White Carpet Cover | Artificial Fiddle Leaf Fig Tree | Carpet | A few empty puffs | Art Prints (details in | Acrylic Coffee Table (similar) | Coffee Table Fire (28″ square) | Black and White Striped Box (coffee table) | Brass Cricket (coffee table) | Gray Plaid (similar) style |Book: The Collected Home|Book: Emily Henderson Styled|Book: Dogs
My artwork is in 18″ x 24″ scraped brass frames – you can’t buy my exact frames separately (my art has already shipped) but they are very similar and come in the same size and larger, or check if I need them. they are big.

Living rooms usually have a lot of square pieces – coffee tables, TVs, media consoles, etc. – so adding a few round baskets on the wall breaks things up and adds texture and softness. I like the look of a group of different corks like this one:
Here’s where I found this basket (mine is large) sitting on the shelves in our living room in NC:
Instead of a set of small baskets, you can also use two or three large wall baskets, such as;

I bought it to put on the wall in our master bathroom and hang it there for a while until I move our furniture in there, but I love it in our entryway!
