Fuel The Soul

It’s not always about just getting organised… it’s about getting organised in style. Here at The Basket Company, we suggest infusing your home with rustic accessories that not only keeps the home tidy but also doesn’t make the rooms feel stressful or cluttered.

It’s just the right time of year to feed your innovative senses and since you’ll be spending a lot more time indoors with your family, you’ll want to create a sanctuary of warmth, cosiness and style to intensify the feeling of togetherness. Including roaring log fires, hearty home cooked seasonal meals and mellow autumnal decor, such as tawny shades of burgundy and caramel.

Nothing says “welcome home” by filling your home with scents of nutmeg, cedar wood and spice and dimming the lights for a feeling of serenity. It doesn’t get more perfect than that does it? Here are some of our other favourite ways to fuel the soul this winter.


Fill up your pot of your favourite tea. Whether that’s a musky-sweet Darjeeling or a delicate rosehip and settle down with your favourite book and a couple of biccies. Why not use our Market Style Vintage Storage Tray for one swift movement from the kitchen to the comfort of your lounge (including your favourite book) not to mention these rich honey-coloured wooden trays also make for a decorative storage piece!

Sturdy Rattan baskets

Make a statement in your home and capture the true essence of charm and versatility with our sturdy Rattan Wicker Storage Baskets. These beautifully handwoven baskets are perfect for storing just about anything, including those loose pesky toys or shoes. We couldn’t think of a better way to make storage easy, without compromising on style!

And of course, we had to add logs and pumpkins… they are Autumn delights after all!

Chunky Rattan Storage Baskets


Speaking of the logs, naturally during this time of year you’ll be lighting the fire for warmth and we all know that nothing boasts the cosiness of Autumn, like a crackling log fire. Make your fireplace so cosy that you’ll want to stay inside all winter and don’t forget to add elegance to your fireplace with one of our timeless rustic wicker log baskets for logs and kindling.


Fill your home with the delicious scents of hearty home-cooked meals for you and the family. Or why not invite some friends over and (if possible) move your dining table close to your fireplace for cosy, intimate dinners. We are supposed to eat in tune with the seasons to fill our bodies with the correct and vital nutrients to prepare for the correct season. For example, during Autumn and Winter foods such as pears, plumbs, brussels sprouts, kale, chestnuts, figs and leeks should make a regular appearance on our plates. Why not combine some hearty wintry vegetables with a succulent beef wellington for the perfect meal that the whole family will love.

Blankets and cushions

Lastly your cosy, stylish haven would not be complete without snug blankets or throws and the beauty is, is that you can simply grab them when you need them for warmth. For an additional Autumnal and wintry touch – fill your home with materials of burgundy, mauve and chestnut. What about some patterned, tartan checked shades for your sofas and the bed? Keep them nearby in an elegant & natural wicker storage trunk, which you can store away when the season changes!

So, there you have it, the perfect way to keep warm, stylish and to fuel your soul this autumn and winter.
