Happy Saturday everyone! It’s a long weekend for us Canadians, woot woot! We don’t have any major plans this weekend, as a matter of fact, the kids have their usual activities on the calendar today, so it’s basketball, dance and horse-back riding lessons over here. Hopefully we will get out and do a family hike tomorrow if the weather cooperates…the forecast is pretty depressing though.
Today I wanted to tell you guys about my new favourite budget-friendly place to source home decor. I am very familiar with H&M for their fashion-forward, inexpensive finds, but did you know that they have home accessories?
I had no idea until I came across this blog post a few months ago, from Room for Tuesday. Check out the post to see a round-up of some really great stuff! I had all the heart eyes for the collage that was shared in the post, and I thought, “ugh, we probably can’t get this stuff in Canada, and if we can, the shipping is probably stupid”. Well, good thing I clicked on a few items and added them to the ole’ shopping cart, just to do proper reconnasance. I was so pleasantly surprised to find out that the shipping was free! Not to mention if I didn’t like what I purchased, returns are also free. Yes, you are reading this right people…free shipping and free returns. At that point, I pulled the trigger on 2 pillow covers and a gorgeous throw blanket, and then anxiously awaited their arrival. Wanna know what I bought? Ya, I thought so. Well the first thing to catch my eye was this pillow cover:
I also was on the search for a black knit throw for our couch, and this one was exactly what I had in mind:
At the time I was also sourcing some new pillows for a decorating project and I knew this green velvet one would be perfect:
Funny thing, when the order came in I realized that not only would my client love the green velvet pillow, but she might also like the other pillow and blanket as well…and I was right, she ended up keeping all 3 items! I placed another order for the same throw blanket and embroidered pillow and am loving them in my space too. I think the embroidered pillow looks great with the ticking stripe one (available for purchase in my Etsy shop btw)I also really love this blanket! I am always a sucker for fringe, but the braiding detail is next level.With my new light grey sofa, I wanted the contrast of black to go with my existing color scheme. I just love light and dark colors together, probably why black and white stripes are my jam.Anyway, an added benefit of this dark throw blanket is that Lucy loves to lay on it and it doesn’t show the dirt she often tracks in on her paws…win win!
The blanket is really soft and big enough for sharing, which is a bonus on movie nights! I have said it before, and I will say it again, throw pillows are the easiest way to change up the look of a room and make a space look pulled together. I wanted to swap out the teal and yellow with green and coral, just for something a little different.Same couch, same dog, similar accessories but different look!Have you ever shopped H&M home before? Here is a collage of some of my favorite items, let me know in the comments below if you have any questions!I hope you have taken away some shopping and decorating inspiration, if you liked this post, please pass it on or pin it for later.
Thanks for reading!
