your new favorite hidden gem for affordable home decor

Wondering where that amazing bubble planter is from? You're about to find out!

I have a deep and passionate love affair with Target. Ikea really does it for me too. But, another store for affordable home decor has recently stolen my heart and I think you're gonna love it too. It was THE go-to spot for "cool" clothes when I was in college. I tried really hard to find a picture of myself from that era to demonstrate, but sadly no luck. This photo of celebrities demonstrating the fashion from the 2000s will have to suffice. Those were the days! Just look at that style!

If you guessed H&M, you're right! H&M's home decor section is a hidden gem. The collection is small enough that it feels like you're shopping from a curated boutique. New arrivals seem to come in everyday and items sell out just as fast, so if you like something, don't hesitate! I've done the hard work for you and rounded up my current favorite picks from every category. First up is wall decor. H&M has a great selection of prints, frames, mirrors, and hooks. Let's have a look shall we?


h&m home wall decor shopping roundup

1. This wood hanger rack ($4.99) comes in a couple of different colors, but the green is my favorite. It looks so nice combined with the warm wood tone. It reminds me of a smaller version of the Eames Hang-It-All. I snatched it up for my kid's bathroom because I'm convinced that this will be THE hook that makes them hang their towels up instead of tossing them on the floor.


2. The wooden frame mount ($17.99) comes in 4 different finishes so it's really easy to customize the look you want. It's magnetic, making it probably the easiest way to "frame" a print. I like laidback, casual look it gives off.


3. I love the perspective of the black and white print ($17.99). Can't go wrong with photography art, especially in black and white. It's classic and sophisticated.


4. The abstract print ($24.99) reminds me of a Matisse and is fun and playful. I'm into the pinkish mauve color too.


5. Rattan is really popular right now, but it's timeless, so don't shy away from this rattan-framed mirror ($59.99). The bentwood hook is a nice detail and makes hanging the mirror a breeze. No struggling to match up the screw holes in the back with the anchors in the wall.



Now let's take a look at H&M's vases and planters. They are a much better quality than you would think for the price. You'll find a good variety of materials and sizes too. Here are my faves.


h&m home vases and planter shopping roundup

1. I have the torso shaped stoneware vase ($29.99) and was shocked at the size and quality when I unwrapped it. It's a fun, whimsical twist on a Roman statue and a great way to add something to your home that sparks conversation.


2. The glass mini vase ($3.99) comes in a couple of different colors, but the smoked glass version is my favorite. It's perfect for a single flower bud.


3. The large pedestal plant pot ($49.99) reminds me of the classic mid-century bullet planter with a sleek and simple profile. The matte black finish gives it a more high-end look.


4. I also have the gray ceramic plant pot ($17.99) and it's a great size for a table top planter. If you're a crazy plant lady like me, you know that affordable planters are hard to come by and this is a great price.


5. The tall vase ($49.99) is on the pricier side for H&M but it is over a foot tall and would make a great statement piece. I love the warm olive green/brown shade.


6. I'm into the old-world look and urn shape of this large terracotta vase ($34.99). It will only look better as it ages.


As far as textiles, H&M has great selection for every room in the house using quality materials like linen, cotton, and wool.


h&m home bedding, pillows, rugs, and textile shopping roundup

1. Throws are always good to have on hand. The variation in the size of the stripes in this classic striped throw ($39.99) give it more interest. And the neutral colors make it easy to incorporate into any color scheme.


2. The ruffle-trimmed cushion cover ($24.99) is such a pretty shade of pink and the ruffles add to the soft feminine look. If pink isn't your thing, it also comes in a cream, violet, and dark gray.


3. I'm digging the earthy shades and block of stripes in the middle of this handwoven cushion cover ($49.99). It's made from jute and cotton and has a really nice texture to it.


4. The tufted tone-on-tone rainbow on this cotton cushion cover ($14.99) gives it just the right amount of texture and interest.


5. Yep, H&M has decor for kid's spaces too! How cute is the printed cotton duvet cover set ($29.99) in the pink horse pattern? My daughter is not into horses (despite her horse-loving grandmother's continued attempts) but I sure wish she was so I would have an excuse to buy this.


6. I imagine it would feel like stepping on a cloud if you had this thick pile bathmat ($24.99) in your bathroom. Bonus: the moroccan style pattern is fun and the colors are great.


Don't worry, your kitchen won't feel left out because H&M has plenty of options for linens, dinnerware, tableware, cookware, & bakeware.


h&m home kitchen wares shopping roundup

1. This smoked wine glass ($5.99) is chic and way more interesting than your typical wineglass. I ordered the champagne coupe version and it's a dead ringer for the vintage ones we received as a wedding gift that have broken over the years.


2. I'm not a table cloth person, but this cotton table runner ($9.99) might convince me to change my ways. The floral print is subtle and delicate.


3. The leopard print and gold rimmed porcelain cup ($5.99) is so fun. Who doesn't want to feel glam while sipping their coffee?


4. This stoneware serving bowl ($19.99) is the loveliest shade of blue and would look great displayed on a kitchen counter filled with fresh fruit. Pretty bowls like this are also perfect for styling book shelves.


5. I love the organic shape and varying edge design of this ceramic plate ($12.99). The gold rim is a nice touch too.


6. This bubbled glass carafe ($12.99) is perfect for keeping on hand to fill water glasses at the dinner table, serving up a large batch cocktail, or as a bedside water carafe for guests.
