Cosy home kitchen: Silver bird trivet

Monday, October 8th, 2012
Accessories for a cosy home kitchen

Trivet: too nice for hot pans?

Kitchen trivets are usually sturdy, practical items, but this unusual trivet is far more decorative in style than the average trivet.

In fact, although a trivet is  normally used for putting hot pots on, this silver bird trivet looks far too nice to burden with hot pans.

The heart shaped trivet is a really decorative piece and we’d prefer to leave it uncovered and on display in a kitchen.

However you choose to use it, the silver bird trivet is £21.95 from Rigby and Mac.

Owl design tea towel

All kitchens need a good supply of tea towels, especially those that bring a smile to your face as you dry the dishes.

This cotton Twitter tea towel is adorned with branches of owls, all lining up for a bit of a tweet.

It’s cute and colourful and, at only £6 from Ulster Weavers, won’t break the bank either.

Designers Guild vintage Christmas decor

Bird decorations

These vintage style bird decorations from Designers Guild can be used as Christmas tree decorations, but may work equally well displayed in your home all year around, as they’re immediately overly Christmassy.

The four birds – two black and white and two red – have glitter accents on them and are strung and ready to be hung.

The set of four bird decorations costs £20 from Designers Guild.

Handmade clay Christmas decorations

Clay decorations

These handmade clay decorations are rather special and a lot of work has gone into making each one.

Each decoration is individually cut from hand, air dried and hand painted on each side with intricate decorative detail. I love both the bird designs (which could be used and enjoyed all year round), but the stars are really nice and seasonal too. They’d make a lovely addition to a tree and come threaded with ribbon.

The clay Christmas decorations are made by Zosienka and Rosie Illustration and can be individually purchased for £15 each.

White bone china owl light

Animal shaped owl bird lamp

Owl light

There a lots of bone china animal-inspired lamps around at the moment and, like some of the others, this owl light is nice for using in a child’s bedroom.

As it’s made of bone china, you may not think it’s massively practical as a bedside lamp, but as it works with a low wattage light bulb which stays cool, it can be left on all night on a shelf as a gently glowing night light. It’s quite a cute design and shape for a child to wake up and see!

The bone china owl light is £69 from Nest Gifts.

Chickadee bird design smoke alarm for your home

Bird smoke alarm

Every home should be well equipped with smoke alarms, but they’re not always the most attractive of items.

If you’re looking for a smoke alarm that serves its essential purpose, but which also adds a decorative touch, then meet the Chick a Dee smoke alarm.

Created in the shape of an American black-capped Chickadee perched on a branch, the bird smoke alarm emits an 86 decibel alarm signal if it detects any signs of smoke.

It complies with the latest smoke detector regulations and has a 1.5 year battery life, after which an alarm will sound to let you know the batter needs to be changed.

It’s nice to find a smoke alarm that’s a bit different, but still fully functional. The Chick a Dee smoke alarm is available in white, pink or black and costs £42.50 from Dutch by Design.

Decorative chopping boards

As chopping boards go, these Birds and Branch boards are very decorative and almost too nice to chop on.

They’re designed and made in Sweden by Julia Nielson and are made from laminated birchwood. The cutting board has a hole at the top, so it can be hung up if you wish, and it’s available in a choice of two colours – zingy green or soft lilac.

The Birds and Branch chopping boards can be purchased from Berry Red and cost £16.50 each.

Do you think they’re too nice for chopping on? Perhaps you could just hang them up and enjoy the design instead!
