This set is absolutely stunning, and I was just blown away at the quality and vibrance as I opened the box! The set is beautiful all together, but it brings so much color to a space that we decided to break it into two sets for two different spaces, an open wall above our couch in our colorful living room, and going up the stairs on a very empty wall. I love seeing these now every day and often find myself going over the patterns and colors with my eyes. They are an absolute treat to look at. Hanging the baskets was easy too! They're light enough that we just used large finishing nails. Each basket had 2-4 hanging loops on the back, which is what we opted for, although a nail right through the center of each basket would have been fine too. We laid out each arrangement on the floor, and had a blast trying lots of different options before finally hanging them. For both layouts, we liked overlapping the baskets and appreciated that the set was curated to include a mix of 3D baskets, rimmed plates, and discs, so the pieces naturally overlap and add a visual texture. The spacing and placement on the wall was forgiving while we were hanging them, and once we decided on the arrangements it only took a couple minutes. I can't recommend these wall statements more highly, they are such a beautiful way to bring some joy and good vibes into your space.
