Welcome to Bright.Bazaar, my make-you-smile style corner of the internet. I’ve been sharing my love of beautiful design, feel-good homes, everyday style, inspiring travel and, pretty much everything in between, since 2009. As well as working as a content creator, I write interior design books and edit a bi-weekly e-newsletter called Smile Mail. I live in New York City with my heartmate and can often be found listening to Madonna’s Confessions album and dreaming up my next home renovation project.
I’ve written here before about new H&M Home collections (here, here, here and here) and whilst the European members of the Bright.Bazaar gang were able to satisfy their shopping drive with an affordable home purchase, the American folks were unable to do so. Well, the excellent news is that from early Spring 2013 the brand will be stocking their homeware line in North America. So, now that even more of us can get excited about H&M Home’s new collections, let’s take a walk through their A/W 2012 range. The first look, Art Deco Opulence, is the counter trend to the pared-back simplicity we have seen so much of recently: think metallics, shimmering glitter, bold 1920’s art deco patterns and sumptuous, indulgent colour palettes. The second trend, Mountain Retreat, is more rustic in it’s approach and therefore on closer ground to their previous collections. They’ve updated the look for the forthcoming season with N.American Indian patterns and Wild West print textiles, all of which is set against a palette of orange and brown hues. Finally, Kid’s Kingdom offers a host of playful and colourful options for little ones. Personally I’m feeling drawn to the burnt orange hues of Mountain Retreat, how about you?
