10 Bohemian African Basket Finds

As weather is getting warmer the bohemian in me is awakened very fast. I was watching a TV show yesterday and one of the characters, who was very rich apparently, had this ethnic boho inspired home and I was hooked. Just a few minutes later I was on Etsy looking for amazing baskets to hang on the wall and use as a storage. Aren’t they cozy!

When I see such displays I almost feel like on a safari or a far away vacation. The natural materials and fabulous selection of accent colors give such warmth to any room. It is soothing, it is relaxing and fun at the same time. I can’t seem to stop marveling at the craftsmanship that goes into the baskets. It takes hours and days to make one, it takes experience and creativity and it also gives the home character.

Here are the best 10 ethnic baskets I found on Etsy. Enjoy, comment, buy if you feel like it. Disclaimer – the links below are affliate links. By using them you are helping me run this blog and my family for which I am eternally grateful.

  1. Tribal Wall Basket

Beautiful basket for hanging on the wall, geometric patterns are woven into the basket. A golden tan/brown, and black make up the abstract designs.
Could also be used as a basket to organize accessories on a coffee or entryway table. Would also look very lovely on a kitchen table (even in the kitchen to hold fruits/veggies).
Dimensions:
Diameter measures approx. 16″, height is approx. 5″

Buying from Africa has also another adantage – you sponsor the local crafting community. It is a good choice instead of purchasing mass produced items. These people learn and master their craft all their lives and on that they rely to survive. I encourage you to pick up buying from local crafters as a chaity and a lifestyle. Not only you will have masterpiece around the house, you will also help and that is something to be proud of.

If you liked the collection and want to see more basket finds head to my Pinterest board and knock yourselves out.

Happy shopping and pinning!

Top 10 Bohemian Wall Tapestry Finds

Boho is a great trend. It is a combination between hippie, ethnic and whimsical I can not seem to get enough of. I have been dreaming of making a bohemian bedroom for me and my SO for quite some time now. I have been collecting great finds on my Bohemian Decor board on Pinterest and literally drooling over some of the things I came across while researching the boho decor style.

Etsy turns out to be one of the best places to go for if you want to get quality handmade bohemian items. That is why now I will share with you my list of very best wall tapestries – an absolute must in every boho room. They change the dimentions of the room and make it out worldly. Especially the big ones – they turn the room from simple square space to a much more organic shape.

Bohemian decor is bringing home decor back to nature and the natural ways people are meant to be. It is the absolute opposite of minimalism and still is very feminine and soft. If someday I have a She Shed it will definitely have this boho vibe so I can feel as womanly as possible.

So go on – have a look at my favorite finds. Hope you will come to love them as much as I do.

  1. Macrame Hanging Wall tapestry

Delicate and quite modern piece. I have always thought that macrame and the things made with it is a bit granny style but this wall tapestry proved me wrong 100%. Found it on the Noma Macrame  store where you can see all sorts of beautiful things. I  encourage you to look through them and see if your piece is there and waiting.

2. Shabby wall tapestry

Shabby and very free feeling. This wall hanging tapestry is a combination of a variety of fabrics, textures, crystals and natural elements. Love how gypsy  it feels but still is modern and stylish without being kitsch. Found it on Onamaiart shop along with many other beautiful items. Totally worth the time to look through it.

3. Majestic hanging wall tapestry

This piece is such a showstopper! Can’t wait to get my hands on it. My living room will be lit with it and will look stunning. This piece will be the subject of conversation with everyone who enters. My guests will be as enchanted as I am. It is the scale, it is the color and it is the overall composition too. Love it. Love the store I found it –  TeddyandWool.

4. Marcame Ombre Wall Tapestry

How not to love blue ombre. Indigo blue is one of my favorite colors. It is natural, nothing forced about it and looks stylish all year round. Indigo will be. Found this beauty on the MOXmacrame 

5. Yin Yang Big Wall Tapestry

And now to the big tapestries we go. I love how effortless they turn a bland wall into a colorful masterpiece. You can align them so they do not match the corners of the wall and create your serene boho cave in a corner of the room. Nothing to it. Just look at some corner boho caves on my Bohemian decor pinterest board. This big tapestry will fit perfectly. It is big enough and the Yin Yang design is very subtle. Found on the GoodArtUK store.

6. Bright Mandala Wall Tapestry

I have no trouble imagining this tapestry as a background for my meditation cave. Call it meditation, call it just some me time for quieting the mind. Call it whatever but this mandala is both calming and warming for me. I would love to see it when I open my eyes and absorb the beauty and love those colors bring. Found on the BrandlessArtist  Etsy Store.

7. Summer Wall Tapestry

As for summer – this is the one. I can see my summer villa with it and it will look so fresh and still cozy and comfortable. Speaking of she sheds – i can think of a space – an outdoor kitchen that can be easily transformed int art/she shed space and this tapestry is on the list. Definitely. Found on the  DesignBohemian store.

8. Elephant Wall Taperstry

Elephants are a symbol of good luck and prosperity. One of the richest guys I know has filled his house with them and is super lucky in love, live and work. I think it is worth the try and the pinch of belief.

9. Indian Block Print Mandala Wall tapestry 

Boho design and India go together like two peas in a pod. This is authentic block printed tapestry. I belie that handmade carries some of the love and spirit of the maker. Such intricate work requires a lot of love and dedication. That I find really inspiring.

10. This is it – the wall tapestry of my dreams

This is how my bedroom should look. Big, gigantic tapestry behind the bed. So cozy and warm and graphic. Love, love, love it. Found on the Karmandala store. They have all sorts of wonderfil tapestries. Take a good look around. I am sure you will be very tempted to buy them all.

Hope you loved my collection aka shopping list. Is there anything you would add that will make a boho room a showstopper?
