H&M Home Presents: An Urbanite Mediterranean Living

Friday, February 06, 2015

For Spring 2015, H&M Home is bringing in lots of light and natural elements for our homes. You can expect to brighten up your living space with a few simple ornaments, rugs and pillows – and bring a little Mediterranean touch into your home.

For starters, you can go with the obvious – ethnic prints and clean lines, striped and tasselled cushions, and rugs as well. The color green is an important element in the design (what else spells nature more than green, after all). The overall look gives a very nice, rustic charm which is very popular these days. I also love how they had revamped and kept some of my favorite styles in décor, such as those lovely bronze tea lights and candle holders. I don't know when I started to become such a candle person – but candles are an amazing touch to bring to your living space.

“I love the possibilities of spring, as the new season brings light and nature into the home. We have so many great ideas, and amazing new products, to refresh every room in the house.” – Evelina Kravaev Söderberg, H&M Home’s head of design.

For the kitchen, there is also quite a focus on getting ready for a new season of entertaining, with wooden cutting boards and storage boxes, along with new herb storage, carafes and bottles for water. I especially adore those vintage-but-modern storage boxes, they add such a beautiful touch to any home. I know most of us in Malaysia are dying to have these nice wooden homes like they always feature – but our weather and notorious termites makes it really tedious to upkeep and expensive too. At the least, we can have one or two wood elements in our kitchens without needing too much care.

The wire bowls and containers are something new, and I think they look fantastic. Very edgy, modern and minimalistic – enough to hold your fruits and whatnots in place.

Goodness knows we can use some beauty in our life – and H&M Home strives to bring us just that. You can start shopping the collection in stores by this month. Happy decorating! :)

    1. I know right? It's even harder for tropical countries to include wood into our home because of the humidity!
