Decocrated is a quarterly subscription sending you a giant box full of home decor, seasonal decorations, wall accents, and more using different textiles, colours and materials to keep your home looking classic yet modern and fun.

I also love their insert that gives you great ideas on how to use the item in different ways through inspiration and tips. Each quarter you can expect 5-7 items, including one from each category of a vessel, so something that would hold other items like a tray, baskets or crate. A table item like a decorative piece, candle, or clock, an item that could hang like a print or banner, and a textile items like a pillow cover or place mat. In the Spring box we have some lovely seasonal colours and some great items by this months featured artist.

I’m loving the massive Market Tote, cute colours! The framed photo is lovely and adds a pop of colour in our bathroom. The blue pillow covers offer up a colour change to our winter set. I like the black candle holder, there are so many uses for it! The black board is nice with the magnets, I added the magnets to my kitchen fridge and created a dinner and chore list on the black board. The gold holders are useful too, I used mine as a cocktail corner setup with each votive holding different items like bitters, to tires and syrups.

Their sole purpose is to help you feel at home no matter where you roam by sending a box of custom designed and creatively curated home accents to your door each month!

You can expect to find lots of home decor and kitchen items, some bath and body products, candles, and items that will help you with home organization. I feel like I don’t have the best home decorating skills since I collect so many mismatched things, but this type of box could help me get back on track, out with all the clutter and in with some fun basic pieces, just like an outfit!
Some of my fav items of theirs are the ceramic fruit baskets, the wooden tray tablet holder, the cute skirt apron, and coffee mugs.

Looking for a Canadian subscription? Meraki is a new fav of mine bringing you a bi-monthly subscription of local artisan products from small Canadian businesses. You’ll find new companies in each box that are cruelty free and mostly vegan which I absolutely love. I love how they support our locals so much, it’s important to keep these small businesses growing! I’m blown away from their first box which is the Sustainable September box, so many amazing companies with amazing products that will encourage us to reuse, reduce and recycle! All of these items will be put to good use too, love it! In this box we have;

  1. Goldilocks beeswax wraps – I have tons of these at home already but can always use more! Beeswax wraps are such a sustainable way to keep for fresh and portable. I use these wraps everyday whether it’s bringing banana bread for a snack or grapes on the go, wrapping up sliced veggies or saving that second half of avocado. Big fan!
    Grocery tote – Also a fan! I only have 1 of these bags already and needed more! They are great for produce as well as grocery shopping! Bringing mine to the pumpkin patch to pick apples!
    Solid Shampoo by William Street Soap Company – First time I’ve heard of a solid shampoo and super excited to try it out! Seems like a good idea to reduce waste from those massive plastic bottles! Mmm love the rosemary peppermint smell!
    Little Fox Sews Lots reusable facial rounds – these are great to use in place of cotton balls as a makeup remover, and they are sooo soft!

They are only $69 bi-monthly. Or you can also purchase their trial box for $85 in their online store which includes a few items from some past boxes. Loving that macrame plant holder!
