You’ve heard me say it before, that while I don’t typically decorate for every holiday, I decorate for the seasons. I think growing up in New England where the four seasons are a bit more prominent has trained me for this mind set when it comes to decorating our home. I want to welcome each new season, and all it has to offer, by incorporating pieces that remind me of that season throughout our home. Texture is a great way of adding warmth to a space, but incorporating seasonal textures is another great way to decorate your home seasonally. Today I’m sharing with you my favorite pieces for incorporating rattan into your home decor.
Depending on the material, and how tightly woven it is, sometimes it’s easy to tell the difference between rattan and wicker, and sometimes it’s not. Especially with all the new versions of wicker there is out there. However did you know that rattan and wicker are actually apart of the same family? They in fact come from the same material, the difference is the technique in how it’s woven. Crazy right? Wicker tends to be a little bit more relaxed, while rattan is tighter woven, and has more of a bamboo look to it. Now that we’ve cleared that up, let me show you some of my favorite pieces you can use to sprinkle it throughout your home 🙂

It doesn’t matter if you choose to make a focal point with a rattan piece or a simple touch with an accent piece. Texture always stands out and helps give your space some depth.
Most popular I think is the warm honey shade rattan is known for, but I also love the sun bleached wash, and the pops of color that some rattan pieces have as well.
Texture is on the top of my list for adding to a space because it breaks up the other materials and patterns in a space. Great for adding storage, or corralling items in an entryway or living room. I also love the statement adding a chair makes or a light fixture. Sometimes it breaks up the norm and adds a nice element that’s pleasing to the eye.
I’m not saying rattan is only limited to summer months, but sure is an element I like incorporating in my summer decor. It helps add to the relaxed vibe I already have going on in our space, and of course helps balance out all the white in our neutral themed home.
Do you have any rattan in your home? Or have you been eyeing a piece? I’d love to get either the bar cart or pendant light for my home. Tell me your favorite, I can’t wait to read which ones you love 🙂
