Chic Containers for the Home

By Kate Riley May 24, 2018

For Mother’s Day, all I wanted just a long afternoon of retail therapy, just me and my latte, strolling around favorite home decor stores like West Elm and CB2. I did just that and while I was out made a few purchases, one was a modern palm hurricane that I’m using as a planter. And may I mention CB2 is killing it with their spring vessels this year.


Those who read this blog know I have an teensy addiction to white ceramics, I collect them for use all over my house. On a weekend daytrip to Bainbridge Island, I found two handmade sculptural white cups made by a local artist and surprise! I had to bring them home for use in my bathroom vanity.



For storing stuff around the house, I prefer textural or sculptural or patterned containers instead of the more mundane or plain. I like containers with character! I spied a bunch of them at the stores mentioned above, and a few more online. Unique vessels to have so you can stash you stuff with style. Here are some standouts:


lupa planters / tides storage basket  / beaded hanging planter

parkay hamper / herringbone cachepot / wide stripe basket

two tone basket / totem vase / kalahari basket

penny planter / fluted pot

conway basket / dipped belly basket / isabella baskets
