Travel Tips

We all know the drill: By the time it’s socially acceptable to put out your fall home décor, stores are already pushing winter holiday decorations. Skip the mad rush to deck your halls and keep up with the changing seasons — while making impulse purchases in the process — and let the décor come to you with Decocrated.


Pronounced deco-crated, this seasonal subscription box comes ready made with home goods,  accessories and even D.I.Y. decorating tips. Unpack it together and decorate the house with the family, or keep it all for yourself — consider it design therapy.

With December holidays around the corner, the next box, Winter, is basically a starter kit to jump-start your family’s holiday spirit. Filled with reds, deep greens and all things cozy, Decocrated delivers seasonal Winter vibes to you.


Each Decocrated box comes with a collection of furnishings from tabletop items and pillows to subtle holiday accents, art and fuzzy throws. Begin with the Winter box, curated by Katerina Fonte, a senior designer at Decocrated, for a touch of winter, a dash of the holiday spirit and a lot of chic designs.


Going with a festively warm box theme, Winter is filled with eight items, including two interchangeable and seasonal items, three everyday accents and three holiday home décor pieces. While each box contains more than $200 worth of home design, individual boxes are $80 with an additional 10 percent off for the annual subscription. Shop month by month, choosing what season speaks to you, or fill your year with home design by designers and artists. Nothing is over the top or like an explosion of holiday cheer — each box is subtle, tasteful, interchangeable and timeless.

By joining the cultivated online world of decocrated designers, users can also enjoy a limited-edition, VIP, members-only holiday box, including exclusive seasonal gifts and discounted items.


Quarterly subscription boxes are handpicked with home décor items for each season and even inspire a little home-design inspiration for the rest of the year.
