H&M Home

I really hate the word haul so instead I will tell you I have been having a little splurge over on H&M Home in recent months and now the last item has finally arrived (after being on back order since the end of December!) I can share it all with you.  I have shared some of the items on instagram already but have been so impressed with my recent purchases I decided they deserved a blog post too.  I love H&M homeware, nothing is over priced and is of comparable quality to items sold elsewhere for sometimes a fair bit more.  The only think I don't like is waiting, if an item is in stock it arrives quickly but if it is on back order be prepared to wait and for the dates to continually change.  I would personally prefer if the item was unavailable to buy until it is ready to ship but ho hum, worth it when it does arrive.

I have loved copper since I saw how it worked in the Nashwhite salon but couldn't find the right pieces to introduce it to our living room.  I think it looks wonderful with the orange and grey colour scheme we have going on, it adds a lovely warm tone.  I have purchased a few bits but tried to keep it subtle so the room doesn't become all about the copper.  I went for these copper candlesticks and finally decided what to put on the wall! I bought a hanging mirror from BHS and painted the frame copper and hung it with the mirror and frame I picked up from H&M along with a little hanging frame I found in M&S.  Even though I have waited two months to hang all four I still haven't decided what to put in the frames, any ideas? Unfortunately none of these items are currently available on the H&M website but I am sure they will be back!

 Candlesticks (£5.99 & £6.99)

 Oval Mirror (£12.99) & Large Frame (£6.99)

I came over all Pinterest and purchased this large jar with the intention of filling it with fairy lights.  I found these cute micro star lights here.


To brighten up our spare bedroom I decided to inject lots of colour to work with the black and white and it ended up feeling a bit tropical.  So I moved my pineapple candles from the hallway (bought from asos) and decided the cactus candle added the perfect finishing touch!  When I get round to it I will share the changes we have made, I love the end result.


H&M is awesome for cushions.  I especially love their velvet cushions as they are really hardworking and come in the most amazing colours.  The other two cushions are a kind of canvas and are a great way of adding colour for a tiny price tag.

Teal (£4.99) / Grey (£6.99) / Pink (£3.99) / Yellow (£3.99)

I've put most of my more fancy/decorative vases into storage preferring to go for something simple.  I was using a glass vase but didn't like that it didn't look that great as the water discoloured.  Thankfully I spied this white ceramic vase which is a very similar shape and perfect for a bunch of daffs.  You really cannot beat a bunch of daffodils, so cheerful!


I have also been loving the homeware at Asda, I picked up this cute lemon chopping board and salad bowl recently both of which were a bargain price.

I share my favourite purchases over on instagram frequently, there is a link in my sidebar and my username is amilliondresses.  Have you been buying homeware recently?  Link me up to your top finds!

  1. I love those candles! They are amazing. Everything is so beautiful. I'm glad I saw this post as it's given me a bit of inspiration to get on with sorting out my stuff (I'm moving between two houses at the moment so my living space isn't looking particularly nice haha).

  5. I absolutely love all of these little touches. It is all so fresh looking. I never think of looking at H&M for homeware, will have to try and remember going forward.
