home, homeware, lifestyle H&M Homeware Wishlist 19th November 2017

I’m a really bad “window” shopper. I taunt myself by trolling through websites looking for pretty things I’d like for my home, add them all to my basket and then when I get to the checkout and see the total I’m like.. uhhh, maybe not. Is it just me?

I’ve been wanting to redecorate my bedroom and don’t get me wrong, I love the burnt orange, but forest green has been calling out to me lately. I just find it really calming and H&M have a huge range in this colour right now which isn’t helping to curb the urge. But if I can get the other half on board the dream can become reality!

I also really love minimalism.. clutter drives me crazy, and the tones I’m drawn to are really cosy too. So I wouldn’t need much to get a happy medium between the two. I’ve put together a little list of things I’ve been spying to achieve this and maybe it can inspire you too!

I teamed up with The Yorkshire Linen Company a few weeks back and shared my love of soft furnishing, you can check that out [ here ]. They’re relatively cheap, they’re everywhere and they can really do a lot to change the feel of a room.
H&M have a huge range of cushions in pretty much all shapes, sizes and colours. So there’s something for everyone!

If the world went to hell, well, more than it already is.. and we lost all power for the foreseeable future I think I have enough candles in this house to keep us warm and with light for a good year. Yup, I really have that many. If I see a bag of tealights at the checkout, they get grabbed. Sneaky shop bastards!

I love to burn them when I can because the soft glow calms me and they make the house smell nice. And when you have a dog, this comes in handy. Besides, candles are more than cosy.. they can come in really pretty pots, have beautiful holders for them which are nice enough on their own and some of the scents that are coming out are gorgeous. As exotic as they can get, I’m a vanilla/sandalwood kinda girl so I tend not to stray too far when it comes to smells.

I have a slight obsession with bedding. I have more duvet sets and sheets than I do socks, and I have a lot of socks. But who doesn’t love fresh new bedding, or even buy a new set just for Christmas morning? It can’t just be me. It’s as traditional as getting yourself a new set of PJ’s to wear on Christmas Eve! And if you don’t do that then you’re doing Christmas all wrong.

So I’m eyeing up a new bedspread and throw; yeah the throw tends to get chucked off when we go to bed but they look pretty and for the colder months it’s nice to grab something and curl up in when you’re watching your favourite series on Netflix.

I only have a few in my house, but I feel like a well placed mirror can make a room feel so much bigger and with the simple gold frame/shapes that are coming out they can also look super expensive and decadent.

I’ve got a really fun idea of getting a bunch of random mirrors, all with a gold frame, in different shapes and sizes and having them dotted up the stairs to break up the wall once it’s all been painted (I still haven’t figured out how to get paint all the way up to the high ceiling!). I think it’ll look really quirky instead of having pictures up.. as we don’t really display photos in our home.

Have you guys got your eye on any homeware pieces or seen anything you’ve gotten really excited about and would like to share? Let me know in the comments below!

      I know! They have so many pretty and affordable pieces. They’re fast becoming my “go-to” when I want to add to my collection.

      Thanks for your comment!

      Agreed! Charity shops are the best place to find bargains like that. x

    These are gorgeous. We just got a H+M Home in Dubai and I am restraining myself. Though I could replace a set of cushions …

    You got me at H&M home. I love pretty much everything from there. When I left the UK I had to sell everything including a lot of stuff from there. It broke my heart!
