Baskets are often used for storage and arrangement, they give a cozy rustic feel and automatically make the room cooler. They are especially good for fall and winter when we are striving for warmth. That’s why we’re going to inspire you today with fantastic winter basket arrangements that will give your room a festive feel. Let’s start!
Bushels / metal baskets
A bushel basket will certainly give your room an even more rustic touch and look more unusual than just a basket. Paint it red, put pine cones, evergreens and ornaments in it, and voila – a beautiful arrangement is ready! Metal baskets are welcome too, and I would recommend making the arrangements simpler and more natural – firewood, pine cones, and logs with blankets are enough to create a cute look. Both metal and bushel baskets can be decorated in a cool way outdoors.
Usual baskets provide a suitable base for winter and vacation arrangements of various kinds. You can fill them with evergreen plants, pine cones, berries, ornaments, foliage and greenery, and much more. Add plaid ribbons and bell bells to give your basket a vacation look, and you’re done! Such pieces can be door decorations, centerpieces, porch and entrance decorations, enjoy your creations.
A fireplace is always a centerpiece that makes the room cozier and more welcoming no matter where you place it, however you decorate it. Surrounding your working or even non-working fireplace with metal will give it a unique look. Metal gives the room a textural touch that creates more interest and of course it attracts everyone around you. Do you want some ideas? Let's check them out below!
Colors and textures
Metal that surrounds your fireplace can be of different colors and also of different textures. It will easily highlight your decor style or make a bold statement if that's what you want. It can be a sleek and shiny metal-clad fireplace, an aged and textured, blackened metal fireplace, and there are many more ideas - this usually depends on the style of your room, for example a sleek metal fireplace will fit a minimalist room while a aged textured copper room will be a good idea for a mid-century modern living room. You can experiment with copper, steel, and other metals and look to match or contrast with your color scheme and style.
Decor and use
Make your metal-clad fireplace great and take a whole wall with you - it will be your statement in the room. Opt for a double-sided room to separate the rooms and give both cosiness and a warm feeling. Create some built-in niches for firewood, even if the fireplace is not working, they will add coziness. Skip the mantels or leave them unadorned - fireplaces surrounded by metal are usually more laconic. Get inspired!
