Last week I ordered several new pillow covers from H&M Home. They are for our loft that we are going to be working on soon. I just recently discovered that H&M carries a home line. I was pretty shocked. I have a few pieces from their clothing line and the quality is ok. You get what you pay for.
There is a pretty decent selection of covers. They have so many styles and colors to choose from and the prices can't be beat. Most are cheaper than it costs to make one of your own. I went with graphic prints and bold colors. Our loft is going to be a family space so I wanted to bring in fun colors. Bright colors will make for better moods...hopefully. The covers have hidden zippers on the bottom, which I love. With the kids around, it's going to be easy to take them off and wash them. I was a little hesitant before ordering because you can't return items to the store, only by mail, and you have to pay for return shipping. I took a chance and ordered anyway.
I also stocked up on feather pillow inserts from TJ Maxx. Trick is to wait until the pillows are marked down on clearance, buy them, and replace the covers with some of your own. Pillows inserts are more comfortable and can be fluffed back up when you're done laying on them. No more flat pillows. It is a little bit of a splurge to replace all the existing pillow inserts with feather ones but I think it's so worth it.
Look at how bright the colors are! Very impressive. Even though they were cheaper, the quality is good. The lines are crisp and the seams are strong. The striped covers are cotton and the two solid ones are a thicker canvas.
Then there's the infamous karate chop to the middle. I know they won't always look this perfect, especially once the family is all over them. At least I have pictures of how they look now.
I think I'll definitely go back for more covers from H&M Home since they are so affordable and look good too!
Have you ordered from H&M Home? Do you use feather inserts?
