~so what do you think about the wicker decor accessory trend?~


Hello friends, how do you like the wicker showing up in decor accessories recently? 

To be honest I wasn’t sure at first how it would fit with my overall decor, but then I came across this wicker vase. 
I had looked at them several times before I finally snapped this one up as it was the last one on the shelf, for the grand price of $7.99!!
 {Then I left it in my cart and someone unpacked my cart and said they hadn’t and then I found it again and all was well in my wicker world!}

I knew right away I wanted to fill it with beautiful roses, and it was a match made in heaven. Can’t believe I thought about it for so long!

I filled it with these stunning roses with green and pink petals and ruffley edges.

They were even more stunning and ruffley when they opened up.


So what do I think about the wicker trend? 

I really like the texture and color it introduces, it is a good fit in any cottagey, french country or even coastal decor. And as it is relatively inexpensive it’s a great way to add some new accessories that weren’t a huge investment when you want to change things up againSmile Not that any of you do that of course!

I have a few more wicker pieces I’ll show you next post!

Your vase is beautiful. Wicker is hard to beat. I have a big collection of trays that add texture and define spaces like nobody's business.

I have three different sizes and shapes of those little baskets and love them. Love the mixture of the wicker and the soft roses.

Hope you had a great week and weekend.

I love a little wicker! It is really popular here in Florida since we have year round summer and so many people move from "Up North and ditch their dark furniture

You are def on the right track..I have always found a way to work in some wicker- use to collect baskets like a crazy woman then began to be more selective keeping only THE most distinctive designs. You are right..Wicker is a good basic AWAYS [ OR WILLOW..all nataural materials] Have fun w your chges and additions of new things!
