I know it shouldn't really matter what your compost bin looks like, but if money was no object I'd treat myself to one of these Baby Beehives from Wiggly Wrigglers. It's much more aesthetically pleasing than the big black plastic ones the council provide and more importantly it is made from 100% sustainable wood. The baby Beehive has a little drawer at the bottom so you can easily access your compost when you need it, and for those bigger jobs each section is removable so you can use more at once. It's cleverly designed to allow air circulation and will hold around 200 litres. It's available in plain wood, white or blue but you can have one custom painted from a choice of seven colours upon request. It will cost you £100 for plain and £125 for coloured. Pretty!
