Musical Inspired Home Decor Wishlist

uncommon goods

At the moment I am going through a phase where I’m just never quite happy with the way my flat looks and I seem to be forever buying new ornamental items, replacing old kitchen items or just trying to find ways to gain that minimalistic look that Instagram and Pinterest are full of (never going to happen with me!) Over the past few months’ I’ve spent a lot of time browsing around online looking for new items and have come across some of the best websites including uncommon goods. The name struck me as soon as I saw it because it automatically made me think of quirky and fun items and not your traditional things which you see repeated on pretty much every homeware and lifestyle website. And I was definitely right.

The brand themselves are an American online store but shipping to the UK is easy – and not going to break the bank – and theres thousands of unique and unusual gifts. But it’s the story behind the brand which is really cool as well as Dave Bolotsky founded the company after visiting the Smithsonian Museum craft show in Washington D.C and he had a desire to connect unique handmade items and the artists behind them. Like many companies it started in Dave’s apartment but now has it’s own design team working with a range of artists with over 100 employees. The brand have a fantastic ethos as well as they ensure that no materials that can be harmful to humans, or animals are ever used in the products and they created a program which can allow customers to choose a partner non-profit organization to donate $1 to with every order. Since 2001 over $1,000,000 had been donated which Β is incredible.

Those who know me know that music is a huge part of my life and something which I absolutely love so I was so excited to see a number of musical inspired homeware items. Check out my mini home decor wishlist below.

Amp Doormat– If I haven’t literally just bought a new doormat I would have ordered this then and there without a thought but now I’m going to have to bookmark it for when my other one is a bit more worn down. This is designed like a traditional Fender amplifier but where the Fender would be you can personalize it to have your own name there which is pretty cool.

Record bowls– These bowls are seriously cool and they’re made from reclaimed records which are customizable to suit your preferences. You can choose the type of record including Rock & Roll, Showtunes, Crooner, Diva, 80’s, R&B, Disco, Jazz, Hip Hop or Folk, I have no idea what I’d go for. You can also choose whether they’re a smooth design or the modern stepped design you get with records. They’re not recommended to actually eat from but I’d love to dot them around with fruit or potpourri in them.

Music Note Measuring Spoons– I don’t actually own a proper set of measuring spoons so as soon as I saw these I fell in love. I absolutely love the music note design which includes a quarter, half and full teaspoon, and tablespoon measurements. They’re lead-free pewter which is great and you can just hang them up as a pretty – yet practical – addition to your kitchen.

Recycled Record Bookends– I have a few recipe books in my kitchen and they’re always moving around when I pick one up so of course bookends are a complete essential, especially when they’re made homemade from vintage records bond together and complete with a steel tongue so your books won’t role around.

What kind of homeware styles are you loving at the moment?
