We’re all about incorporating thoughtful, seasonal pieces throughout our homes to keep things feeling fresh and inviting. This summer has been no different! We are loving the limitless options of a decor trend that’s simultaneously of-the-moment and a classic staple you’ll have for years. Ready to know what it is?
What We’re Loving: Rattan and Wicker
Rattan, a raw material used for weaving, and wicker, a style and method of weaving, have been used to create homegoods for over 5,000 years. We love incorporating timeless classics like rattan and wicker into our homes. The best way to get a modern look and feel is to rethink the use and shape of your pieces. Adding a new piece or two to your entryway or tablescape can instantly provide warmth and texture to your home (and can easily be styled to incorporate seasonal touches).
Rethink the Classics for Your Summer Decor
We all know trays can be a home decor hero: from serving, to storage, to styling your dining room table. The possibilities are endless when you pair a workhorse design with a timeless textile like rattan that performs as well indoors as it does outdoors. For a cohesive look, consider owning several trays in a similar design but different sizes, like the Handwoven Basket Trays that have three size options (we love them all)!
Hostful Hack No. 88: Transport with a tray. Invest in a large decorative tray or two to help carry plates of food, drinkware, and whatever else you may need for entertaining outdoors. It will save you many trips going back and forth from the indoors out.Simplify hosting with our Hostful Hack Handbook
Never Enough Baskets
Just as charming as they are practical, we love using baskets all around our homes. Fill them with fresh cut flowers for a stunning centerpiece, use them for towel storage by your pool, or fill them with soft blankets to create a cozy touch. Add even more visual interest by using a basket in a unique shape, like this Handwoven Natural Vine Basket with Handle. Summer decor has never been easier!
Hostful Hack No. 94: Supply sunscreen and bug spray. Store sunscreen and bug spray in a decorative basket in your outdoor entertaining spaces for easy access to guests when needed.Simplify hosting with our Hostful Hack Handbook
Elevate your tablescape by adding small touches of rattan in a surprising place–like Gold & Rattan Wrapped Cheese Knives. Contrasting woven pieces with other textures like marble and cotton is the perfect way to showcase your personal style.
Hostful Hack No. 84: Use outdoor-friendly serveware. Invest in a collection of outdoor-friendly serveware that won’t break if they accidentally slip off the tray or fall off the table.Simplify hosting with our Hostful Hack Handbook
Keep it fresh
When we think summer, we think outdoors. Bring the outdoors in by using a versatile piece like this Rattan Hanging Wall Basket. Rattan baskets are a wonderful vessel for fresh cuttings from your own garden or flowers from the store. Summer decor has never been easier!
