I know it’s hard to believe that it’s summer time. Most of the things we look forward to are simply not happening this summer. For example, my family and I are terribly disappointed that the Dutchess County Fair will not be happening in August. We look forward to that every summer. We’re also reluctant to visit state parks and the beach for obvious reasons (pandemic). I guess this summer we’ll spend in our condo with the AC blasting and watching every movie on Netflix, Hulu and Disney+. Sigh…
One thing I am able to do this summer, regardless of what is happening around the world, is update my home’s decor and add some fresh new pieces to give my home a summer vibe.
If you read my site on a regular basis, you probably recall me writing about Decocrated. Decocrated is a seasonal subscription box that sends subscribers 5-7 full size products that reflect the season. The fall box has fall related pieces, the winter box has winter related pieces, and so forth.
The Summer 2020 box is now available, and let me tell you, the goodies that came in the box are worth every penny!
I LOVE when my Decocrated box arrives. It’s like Christmas and my birthday all rolled into one. The box is huge!
I try my best not to look up spoilers for each box. I love being surprised. I will admit that sometimes I can’t wait for the box to arrive and I will look up spoilers, but even if I do know what I’m getting in the box, I’m still super excited for it to arrive.
For the Summer 2020 box I did my best with an unboxing video. I know it’s not the best video, but it’s a work in progress. Hopefully I’ll be better by the time I unbox the Fall 2020 box.
Here is my unboxing video, in case you would like to check it out.
I LOVE the contents of this box. I honestly can’t tell you which is my favorite piece. If I had to choose just one, I think it would be the two tiered display shelf. Although… I really do love the succulent planter and the mirror too. It’s so hard to choose!
Here is what came in the Summer 2020 box.
Two Tiered Display Shelf – I LOVE this piece! I can think of so many ways to use this. You can use it in the bathroom to display and organize hand towels, perfume, decorative soap, trinkets and more. You can also use it on your kitchen counter to hold your fresh fruits and vegetables to make them easier to “grab and go.”
This shelf set could also be used on your dresser to hold jewelry and perfume, or you can use it to organize your make up.
The shelf pieces come off so that you can use them to serve thing such as snacks, appetizers or desserts.
I had wanted to use this in the bathroom, but it didn’t fit in the space I had in mind. You’ll have to keep an eye out on my social media pages (SheScribes on Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram, @She_Scribes on Twitter) to see how I ended up using this piece.
Decorative Throw Pillow Covers – Each box that I have received from Decocrated always included a decorative throw pillow case or two. This box came with two pillow cases. One side is a lovely, gold color and design. The other side has a texture to it. I want to say it reminds me of burlap, but not like a potato sack. It’s pretty!
Artwork – Each box features artwork from a specific artist. This box’s artist is Kate Aurelia Studio (@KateAureliaStudio) and Kasey Free Studio (@KaseyFreestudio). It’s a pretty summer design with a lovely blue (like the summer sky!) and bright yellow lemons.
The artwork is double sided. The other side features lemons (no text).
The artwork that comes with the boxes can be displayed in a variety of ways such as in a frame or on a cork board. Because you receive a new piece with each box, you will always have a new piece of artwork to display.
Golden Planter/Basket – This is a really cool piece. It can be used as a planter or you can use it like a basket to store and organize things.
This piece matches the gold “cups” (see below) and try that I received in the Spring 2020 box. I love it how many Decocrated pieces can be mixed and matched and displayed with other items from previous boxes.
I wish I still has the above items handy so I could put them next to the planter/basket that came with the Summer 2020 box. I had packed it away when I brought out our summer decorations. If you saw our basement storage area you’d know why digging them out would be easier said than done.
Succulent Planter – This is SO CUTE! It’s a little planter with fake succulents in it. The succulents look real. Not only do they add a pop of color to any place you place it, but the planter is also very decorative.
I can’t keep plants if my life depended on it. I decorate my home with realistic looking fake plants and flowers. This planter fits right in. I even have other fake succulents around my home.
Also included in the box..
Small rug – This little rug would be great to adorn your front door, your sliding glass doors, bathroom, kitchen or hallway. It can really be used just about anywhere.
My cats love this rug. They think it’s for them. There is usually a cat sleeping on it throughout the day. Thankfully this is pretty easy to clean.
I love the colors (light blue/gray and white). It reminds me of something you’d find in a home with a beach-theme.
Mirror/Mirrored Tray – This is another favorite piece from the Summer 2020 box that I really like. It’s a mirror that you can either hang up on the wall, or use it as a display base.
Currently I have this hanging on the wall in the hallway (I can give myself a last minute “once over” to make sure I look OK), but I plan on using this as a display base with Halloween and Christmas decorations that I have.
This seasons Decocrated Box is pretty amazing. I love each and every piece that came in this box.
