Inspire Me Home Decor Subscription Box Review – November 2017
Inspire Me Home Decor is a relatively new home decor subscription box. Each month you’ll receive a box curated by Inspire Me founder, Farah Merhi.
(We’re reviewing this box thanks to requests from MSA readers!)
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
Everything was packaged securely wrapped in bubble paper and arrived intact. (Super important for a home goods box!)
The Subscription Box: Inspire Me Home Decor Subscription Box
The Cost: $99.99
The Products: Each month you will receive hand picked décor and accents that can be styled together or separately. Each box you receive includes décor items themed around a specific space in your home.
Ships to: US only.
This box comes with a set of cards that detail the items included.
There’s a letter from Farah and an itemized card:
And she also included pictures for tips on how to style your items:
Now, on to the items!
But First Coffee Wood Sign – Retail Value $19.99
This sign measures 12 X 5.5 inches with almost an inch depth.
It’s thick enough to stand on its own or lean against a wall – no need to hang this up if you don’t want to!
Antique Mirrored Tray – Retail Value $53.99
First, props to Inspire Me for packaging this so well that it showed up in one piece!
The tray is a painted-black wooden base with mirror pieces on top. It measures 12.8″ x 19.5″ x 2″.
I’m not crazy about the way this was “antiqued.” The splatter looks a little too even on the sides, and the base piece isn’t “antiqued” at all. Those issues aside, this piece feels solid, has a good weight to it, and I appreciate that is a larger tray (very rare in subscription boxes!)
Faux Flower Set – Retail Value $9.99
These little faux flower pots are 6 inches tall. They feel a little bright for this time of the year, (I would have preferred a faux plant that is more in season), but still cute!
Crystal Knob Cookie Canister – Retail Value $49.99
It measures about 11 inches tall (including the crystal knob), and about 7 inches across.
(This is one of the few branded items in the box – it is from the brand Home Essentials.)
This cookie jar doesn’t fit our kitchen style, (and we’re trying to cut back on cookies!) but I already have the perfect person in mind to gift this to!
Black and Gold Peony Mug Set – Retail Value $17.50
My favorite items in the box! When I see a mug with metallic paint I automatically assume it is hand-wash only, but these pretty mugs are dishwasher safe!
They measure about 4 inches tall and hold 8 ounces.
I love the black and white floral pattern with gold accents, and these are porcelain!
Mini Mercury Glass Vase – Retail Value $9.99
This little vase measures 4 inches tall. Comparing this to the tray, the finish of the glass isn’t as even and looks much more realistic. It’s listed as a vase, but would be beautiful for candles, too.
Verdict: This box has a total retail value of about $161.45. I think for most home boxes the question comes up, “Could I buy similar items for less at Home Goods, TJ Maxx, etc?” If you’re a bargain hunter and like putting together your own styled looks, I’d recommend going that route. If you see a value in getting coordinated items delivered to you complete with styling tips, I think this would be a great box.
