The stylist in me loves a leaning blanket ladder! Where most pieces in a room are usually only 18-30″ high, here’s a tall piece that can add a bit of vertical interest to a space. I like one as a towel-rack in a bathroom or pool-house, a place to hang pretty scarves and textiles in a bedroom, or a spot for a cozy display of textured blankets in a living room.
The trick to styling a blanket ladder is that less is more. And unless you like looking like a doctor’s office, leave off the magazines!

LOW // Wood Ladder Decor // World Market // $60
A leaning blanket ladder can skew modern or rustic depending on the material used and the sleekness of its construction. It isn’t my style to jump on every design trend that comes along, but when a statement piece such as this can be found for $50 (or a DIY version can be thrown together for even less), I am happy to lean in!
