Decorating on a budget can be a long, drawn out, pain. Anyone who says it's fun is on crack. No drug test needed people, I'm calling them all out. You can see the whole vision in your head, but it takes months to complete because important things like RUGS and FURNITURE are effing expensive. I don't currently have a closet (see here) nor do I have a dresser (didn't need one in my last apartment) so my clothing is currently residing in plastic ikea bags because I refuse to purchase a dresser until I can afford the one I want. Yea, it's classy living over here in Los Angeles.
And while expensive or long-lasting investment pieces are important, it's often the little touches and accent pieces that make a room. Cool, right? Because after purchasing a $700 rug and $$$ furniture, you totally have money to blow on things like VASES and TRAYS that are pure eye candy with little actual viable use. No. No. No. Insert H&M home, your new one stop budget-friendly shop for decorative accents. Yes, they have things like sheets and towels, but I don't recommend purchasing anything from H&M if you want a fair amount of use or traction out of it. Because if you've ever owned anything from H&M or F21, you know what I mean. But little knick knack no-touch doo dads? DONE!
Here are a few of my favorites:
ok, so I'm already breaking my own rules. Pillows are kind of a high use thing, and you definitely get what you pay for. And this is nine dollars, so you should expect it to be just okay. But these would be great to add dimension to a collection of quality patterned pillows. LIKE THESE - they are new at L&G and you should go buy them right now. Fill this ^ ^ bad boy with an over sized down insert and BAM! You're a trendy 1970's palm springs lady and I LIKE IT.
Metal and glass? Done. So cool. So effortless. So cheap.
I mean, look at how they styled it. This could be you for less than $50.
Ok - be free! Shop H&M Home and make your house a perfectly styled masterpiece and then tell me about it. I'll be here, dreaming of pizza.
