I’m not a big fan of cleaning (it’s a “necessary evil”), but I do love to have my home to look and feel the best way possible. I want everyone who enters out home to feel welcome. I want my home to be warm and inviting.
I take pride in how my home looks, right down to the littlest detail.
I love to shop for my home, more so than myself. I also like to switch things up a bit and swap out decorative pieces from time to time (or move them to different spots in our home). My husband is the first to notice when I change things up. He thinks I do it out of boredom. I don’t. I just like to keep my home looking nice, so if that means I need to move a clock from one wall to another, or swap out my red vase with my blue vase, so be it.
I love shopping at home decor stores because I never know what I’ll find. In addition, I often come across pieces that I didn’t think I’d want or need for my home, until I see them. This is why my husband jokingly says I need “adult supervision” when I shop. Ha Ha.
There are a lot of subscription boxes on the market these days, from beauty to horror collectibles, and from kids boxes to boxes for your pets. But did you know that there is a subscription box for your home? There is! It’s called Decocrated – the home decor subscription box.
Every three months (quarterly, or as the seasons change), Decocrated sends subscribers a box full of timeless, high quality, home decor.
Since their boxes arrive when the seasons change, it’s the ideal time to switch up your home decor to match the season (or a “seasonal refresh” so to speak).
Decocrated subscription boxes feature full size products, and their combined value far exceeds what you pay for the box. You would also have to shop at many different stores to get similar pieces, but with Decocrated, these wonderful goodies come directly to you.
Each box comes with approximately 7-8 pieces. Many reflect the season, and other pieces can be enjoyed year round. It’s totally up to you.
Here are the actual boxes from this past year (Fall 2018, Winter 2018, Spring 2019 and Summer 2019).
As you can see, you get a lot of wonderful products with each box. Each box geared towards a specific season.
These boxes can be enjoyed no matter where you live. For example, just because you live out West where you don’t have the same type of Autumn as people in the Northeast have, doesn’t mean that you’ll like the fall box any less (and vice versa). Each product is meant to be enjoyed no matter where you live in the country.
You can utilize all of the decor items in each box when you receive the box, or wait until you are ready.
As you can see, many pieces can be enjoyed year round. It’s totally up to you.
I was sent to review Decocrated Fall 2019 box.
In the first photo you can see two of our cats are just as excited about the Decocrated box as I was – except they wanted the EMPTY box to play with, and I wanted to goodies that were inside. Ha Ha.
The box is really big. That is because it contains full size products. These are not miniature or sample sizes. These are the same types of products you would buy in a store.
The box is very well presented. Decocrated took time to make sure you enjoyed opening the box, as much as you did opening the product boxes.
Inside the box I found an assortment of smaller boxes. These are the boxes the products are in. They are not labeled on the outside, so it’s a total surprise as to what is inside. It’s like Christmas morning!
Decocrated makes sure that your products arrive to you safely and in one piece. For that reason they prevent the interior boxes from bouncing around with empty boxes and cardboard. They are labeled as such so you know which box is which.
I like this idea. I think it works better than bubble wrap, and the cardboard can be recycled too.
Once I opened the box up, I was able to retrieve seven boxes that contained the products. These are nice size boxes too.
Now for the fun part… opening up these boxes to see what’s inside.
The first item is a large, woven, wicker tray. The sides are about 2″ high (give or take, I cannot find my ruler).
I am not sure what I plan on doing with this yet. I know it’s a tray, but I’m honestly thinking about hanging it up on the wall in my kitchen. I think it would make an equally as nice wall decoration as it would a try.
I was going to use it on my coffee table, but right now our kittens are still in that phase where they will sit and sleep in anything they can fit in. I know if I put this on the table they are going to sleep in it. So for now, I think using it at wall decor would be best.
Inside the box was a really cute letter board that came with many letters to create different words. Right now I have it set as “Boo.” After Halloween I am going to use “Fall.” After that I’ll change it to “Love.”
The letters easily slide on and off.
This is one of those products that I didn’t know that I “needed” in my life until I finally received one. I really love this letter board. I would love to get more tiles for it so I can create even more words.
This is a pedestal tray or stand. Again, I can’t find my ruler, but I’d have to say this is about 7″ across each way (approximately) and about 2″ high (approximately). You could use this as a tray or a pedestal for a vase, photos or a piece of artwork.
The photos do not do this justice. My apologies for the low quality of the pedestal photos.
I have not found a place for this yet. I know I can use this on my dining room table during Christmas time. I have a centerpiece that could use some height on it to be seen better over the high back chairs. I have been wanting something like this just for that purpose, so I know this will be put to good use for the holidays.
This is a double sided piece of block art. One side is perfect for Halloween, and the other side is great for Thanksgiving. You could also keep “Thankful” up year round, because we should all be thankful no matter what the holiday or season.
I love that this piece has a dual purpose. You are getting two decorating pieces in one.
Currently I have this on our television stand. I look at it every night when I am watching T.V.
Inside the fall Decocrated box was two pillow cases that fit 8″ x 8″ throw pillows, which we happened to have for our couch.
One pillow is white (front and back) with blue triangular-like shapes on it. The other pillow features a pumpkin with some succulents on one side, and a reddish color on the back side (see above pictures), so this pillow is reversible.
We use the throw pillows on our couch. I have always thought about mixing it up for the holidays and seasons, but I never got around to looking for pillow covers. I am so glad Decocrated sent me some. Now that I see how great my dark couch looks with a pop of color added to it, I want more throw pillows to reflect the different holidays and seasons.
Also included in the 2019 Fall Decocrated box is a two sided metal sign. On one side it reads “Gather here with thankful hearts,” which is ideal for Thanksgiving. On the other side it reads “Welcome to our home.”
This sign is made of metal and the sign swings around to reveal the other side.
What a wonderful decoration to keep up year round (which I plan on doing). Right now I have the “thankful hearts” message displayed. After the holidays I’ll change it to the “home” message.
Doesn’t it look great on the table in our hallway? I love it! It’s perfect!
I don’t know much about succulents, except they are cute and they require little water.
Inside the fall box is metal wall art of a succulent.
At first I wasn’t sure if I’d like hanging this (it didn’t match with our current decor) but after I hung it up in the hallway, I think it looks great!
I love that it’s three dimensional, and that it’s made out of metal. It’s a unique piece that I have received several compliments on thus far.
This wall art doesn’t necessarily express fall/autumn, so we can keep it up year round. I like that it also matches one of the throw pillow covers that came in this quarters Decocrated box.
As you can see, Decocrated gives you a lot for your money. I love how they match the holidays/seasons so perfectly.
You can subscribe to an individual box (Winter is the next box), or you can subscribe for the entire year so you don’t miss out.
A subscription would make a wonderful gift idea. Even one box would be perfect to give someone for the holidays.
