In the meantime, I was compelled last week to fill the blank white wall (do you ever have those moments?!). It was an impulsive moment and I just had to use what I had on hand. I had these wicker trays I had picked up at Goodwill a year or two ago, and have used them randomly around the house. Also have this BEAUTIFUL, treasured, pink-rimmed basket from an Ethiopian friend which I use all the time for fruit and such.
I had a vague memory of something I'd seen on pinterest which loosely inspired the idea (although I didn't go back and look at the photo until just now...I'm telling you, I was on a mission :)).

I really love it. They're just loosely hanging on nails, so I can easily grab them if I really want to use them...although I'm not sure I'll do that since I'm really enjoying having them on display. So beautiful! I don't know why I didn't think of this sooner. They add just the right amount of color and texture to blend well with the tiles - not too much, just enough. Love it!
those oranges are waiting to be juiced, fyi...we don't eat that many oranges around here! :)
