As soon as Christmas is over and the decorations are packed away, I always find myself searching for ways to freshen up my home for the new year. These images of the latest collection from H&M Home provide plenty of inspiration and show just how easy it is to breathe new life into interiors with a few carefully chosen accessories.
They were taken at beautiful Lisbon hotel Santa Clara 1728 – one of my picks for stylish places to stay in the city. Its crisp white walls and swathes of natural stone provide the perfect backdrop for the range, which mixes natural textures with monochrome pieces and bold graphic patterns. There are also flashes of soft turquoise (a subtle, uplifting shade) and silver metallics, adding an elegant twist to the largely neutral, pared-back look.
It’s a stunning combination which makes the perfect antidote to dreary winter days and which will also work brilliantly once spring rolls around. And, this being H&M, prices start at just £3.99 – proof that eye-catching design can be affordable and accessible.
If you want to recreate elements if this look yourself, here are a few of my favourite pieces from the collection. And you really don’t need much – a striking new vase or a few cushions dotted here and there really can transform a space without adding needless, unsustainable clutter to your home.
