I have a bit of a thing for cushions. My two sofas and one chair in my living room currently have a combined total of 9. Which actually, when adding them up, seems totally reasonable. Perhaps I should get more. I just upgraded the inserts to feather and they are now so comfy I want all the cushions!
Almost all my covers are from H & M Home. I first discovered it a couple of years ago in the Oxford Street store, and immediately fell in love with the rustic, french-inspired look to most of their collection, but they usually have a few different styles at any one time, some more modern than others. My first cover was a reproduction black pepper sack from Provence, and the rest are linen or vintage style.
They don’t just do cushion covers though, they also have a great range of bathroom, bedroom and kitchen products, mainly fabrics, but also decor items such as candle sticks and a nice line of ceramics and crockery. I notice they have a gorgeous new baby range too which would be great for gifts for newborns. I pretty much love everything they produce, always! The prices are also consistently very good, especially if you manage to grab a few sale bargains (which I usually do, being the queen of bargain shopping).
In checking out their new cushion cover range I got a bit distracted and ended up compiling a wish list of all sorts of lovely things, unsurprisingly all in grey, which I am a little obsessed with at the moment. Grey is the new black in my humble opinion (though I went Orange for a while, but we’ve finished season two and they’ve only just started shooting season three so no more orange for me for a while). Maybe it’s an adverse reaction to the heatwave, but for some reason I’m thinking about cosy throws and blankets and snug autumn evenings by candlelight, or maybe it’s because I was looking at the AW season stock.

Gah! Tis a dangerous website – I just found a few more things I love whilst checking prices.
This Pineapple glass jar (£9.99) is so cute, though not sure my boyfriend would approve. He’s not at all bothered that pineapples are ‘having a moment’, he thinks they have no place in home decor. I love it though.
And how cute would this be to sip my cappuccino in the mornings whilst reading blogs before work? Only £4.99.
The only thing which I don’t like about their products is that the gorgeous bedding range is only available in single and double sizes. I would love the linen duvet set for my king size bed, but alas, no joy. H & M, please bring out a king size range.
It’s my birthday in September so maybe I will get lucky and some of these might end up wrapped in some pretty paper with my name on! Otherwise I shall just covet them from afar, and maybe treat myself if I feel I deserve it.
Which items from the H & M Home range do you love? And how many cushions per sofa seat is too many?!
