H&M’s new home products encourage creating your own staycation

Before I share what I think, I’m really curious to hear your thoughts on the new home products released by H&M. Rather than leave home for a feel of the tropics and bright colored palms H&M suggest a Staycation by filling your home with patterns in shades of bright green, leaves and nature-inspired prints cover bedding, table linens and bathroom textiles. All of this over a very warm backdrop of warm plaster walls, woven grass rugs and nut colored upholstery.

Personally I would not want bright green bedding and leaf covered tableware however I do like the general styling and architecture of the rooms. There are a few accents like this vape, rug and glasses that I would definitely buy!

IKEA’s renewable shelving system, Svalnäs

Currently at home we have become more and more concerned about the environment. I should stop here and make sure you know I am no poster child for being eco friendly! Sometimes we use plastic bottles and sometimes we buy unnecessary things and sometimes we create too much waster. However! The environment and our impact on it has moved more and more to the forefront of our mind and it slowly changing the way to make decisions. Recently I purchased a set of glass water bottles for us to reuse. They are very similar in the to the plastic disposable versions we used to drink from but now we simply wash and refill.
This has also become a dialogue we involve the kids in. Talking often about how we can do more with less and consider the impact of our choices is really good for all of us, no matter our age.


And so, we gladly welcome IKEA’s Svalnäs shelving into our home, which is made from renewable bamboo. It’s not going to single handedly save the planet but it is a step in the right direction to put our efforts and support towards material that can be easily replenished. The system is composed of shelf components of various widths and depths, a desk and drawer with recessed dividers. The entire unit is very light weight and best of all, fully cusotmizable. The tracks the shelves hang from come in differing lengths so each section can be customized vertically and horizontally.

At home this storage system is used to hold overflow kitchen items, books and a paper lamp Storuman, also from IKEA. I chose low profile shelves with a shallow depth because our funny angled wall leads into the living room and I didn’t want to obstruct the view. These can easily accommodate a single vertical sets of shelves or continue on across a very wide wall. It’s also nice to add some warmth from this Svalnäs unit to our monochrome kitchen via this adjacent wall.

Fawn brown marble and hidden shelves

Now you see them…

now you don’t. 


A perfectly streamlined kitchen in a warm shade of marble that gives you the option for shelves above the sink, or not! As someone who has become increasingly indecisive, I’d love this feature. It’s also a nice way to hide in plain sight those things you use and still want to access easily.
