This bell is my favorite new decor item. I love an unexpected element in a room. My favorite unexpected elements are functional pieces not normally seen in a home with an industrial or utilitarian history.
This ship’s bell was $12.99 at Home Goods. I didn’t have to think twice about adding this to my cart. It would be the perfect unexpected element for the kitchen. When I spotted this one, I also grabbed the bell I used in styling the family room built-ins. When I was checking out, the cashier asked if I collected bells. I replied, “I guess I do now”. Add bells to my list of decor idols.
I mounted the ship’s bell next to the fridge, just at the edge of the kitchen and the family room. Now I have a dinner bell. Hopefully a ring of this will get my boys scrambling to the table.
I love how it looks with our clock (from Crate & Barrel) and the globe pendant lights (from West Elm). Now we have a modern, industrial, nautical vibe in the kitchen.
