After discovering the dotcomgiftshop website last year, I have quickly fallen in love with it due to the beautiful things they sell. I often find myself browsing their site even if I don't have the money to spend just to lust over things I'd like. One thing I bought when it was on sale was these building blocks.
The building blocks are only available to purchase from www.dotcomgiftshop.com and have a full price of £14.95 and a delivery charge applies. I was lucky to pick mine up for around £5 when it was on sale.
The building blocks compromise of four individual letters that, when placed together, spell out the word bath. Each blocks holds one letter, they are all made out of wood but although you would expect them to have quite a weight to them, they are lighter than you would imagine and when you pick each one up it's just like holding air! The blocks are 8cm wide, 8cm deep and 8cm high so they are all in proportion and slightly larger than what I imagined they would be when I ordered them. The overall feel is good and they are definitely made to a high standard.
I love the overall look of the letters with the blue colour of each block broken up with a worn, rustic type effect it gives them quite an old-fashioned vintage feel. The font used is nice and the letters do stand out despite there being quite a lot of the distressed look around them trying to take the limelight. I haven't really decorated my upstairs bathroom in any way, it's just plain white and I use blue towels to break it up a bit. The bath building blocks look great on the window sill and despite there being no kind of decoration in my bathroom, they set it off perfectly.
Another thing I like about the letters is the ability to set them up how you want. They can be simply laid next to each other so they spell out the word bath traditionally or they can be placed on top of one another so there are two letters at the top and another two on the bottom. It really is down to preference and you can place them however you want.
The full price of these building blocks is a little out of my price range and I don't think I would pay very almost £15 for them. But if you can find them on sale snap them up as they really are lovely building blocks and can set off bathrooms really well. The blue colour does mean it might be hard to match with other colour schemes, but for neutral bathrooms it's perfect.
