The baskets are from Zimbabwe but you can easily find them in South Africa in any African market.

The green wall looks similar to Flower power - 398 by Benjamin Moore is similar:

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Book Tour: The Happy Home Project
This entryway is a good example of Nayar's color rule of thumb: "To create serene spaces ... limit the number of colors in a room to three or four, with two of the colors in a palette serving as accents," Nayar advises. This organized entryway is also an example of global-influenced style because of the rich accent color, African baskets, oriental rug and hand-woven cushions. Objects that remind you of your travels can transport you to a different place; objects that you know support micro-economic ventures in impoverished countries (like these baskets) always make you feel good.
Vanessa Brunner added this to 5 Ways to Make a Better Entrance
1. Clean out everything but the necessities. Get rid of miscellaneous papers and piles and hone it down to the essentials. Once you figure out what's a necessity in this space, you'll have an easier time figuring out how to keep it organized. A built-in like this is great, because it doesn't allow for any extraneous items. There's a clear spot for coats, hats and other basics — everything else makes its way into the rest of the home.
This entryway has places to shed coats, gloves, hats, scarves, shoes and bags upon arrival. Organized entryways (usually beside the back, side or garage door) include a spot to sit for putting on or pulling off shoes, store bookbags and hang keys.
Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to 12 Wonderfully Creative Coatracks
What a wonderful take on the ubiquitous white beadboard hall built-in! The deep eggplant color warms and tantalizes, while just the bench's and coatrack's being built in keeps this very budget friendly. If your personal style is less bold, consider doing the same thing but use a shade just a couple of ticks deeper than the surrounding walls.
A Place Where Guests Can Sit (and Put Coats and Bags)Just as dinner with friends doesn’t have to be a big production to be particularly welcoming — a $20 meal of soup and cornbread can feed your 15 closest friends and fill your home with warmth and joy — your house doesn’t have to be white-glove perfect to be guest-ready.I’m not saying that it shouldn’t be tidy and relatively clean. But if you’re always worried about making your house perfect before anyone sees it, chances are you’re not having people over very much. And when you do, you may be stressed out about all the little imperfections that no one else notices anyway. Here’s the thing about perfection: It doesn’t actually make people feel that comfortable.
Laura Gaskill added this to What Goes With Purple Walls?
Chartreuse. Saturated plum paired with chartreuse looks especially splendid in fall but works well all year long. Create a connection to nature by bringing in natural materials, like wood, leather, woven baskets and wool and silk rugs. How to work with chartreuseOriental or kilim rug. A really rich wall color can stick out like a sore thumb, particularly in a space with light-colored floors. An Oriental or kilim rug in shades of red and plum will tie in with the wall color for a more cohesive look.
