So since I’ve recently moved and autumn is all around us I thought it would be a good idea to share some of the places I really love to go home decor shopping, as well as some items I’m lusting after this fall. Because fall really is the time for being indoors isn’t it? Fluffing your pillows, lighting the candles and cozying up in your favorite chair with a cup of tea and a good book. Might as well make it look good while we’re at it!
I haven’t gone home shopping for furniture in a long time but when I do, I usually find myself at IKEA. IKEA has everything, especially good cheap essentials for when you are just moving out. It’s where I go for all the basics like pots and pans, coat hangers and organization tools. The quality might not be sublime but in my opinion, its definitely worth it for the price.
Their furniture selection is also quite good and if there’s anything I enjoy spending an entire day on, it’s walking through IKEA’s many displays while trying out all their beds and sofas to see if they would be worth considering. It always reminds me of that moment in 500 Days of Summer, where Joseph Gordon Levitt and Zooey Dechanel are pretending to be living in the displays and somehow end up NOT getting kicked out even though they end up making out in one of the beds! Probably the most unrealistic part of the whole movie!
Another place I really love to get smaller bits and bobs from, is H&M’s home section. It’s a great place to find some cute scented candles or the perfect throw for your new sofa. I go in there a lot just to browse ideas but often end up walking out with something instead. It’s too irresistible and their displays are always so pleasing to look at.
Sinnerup is a smaller place that I haven’t really seen any other places than Denmark but if you are from the home country, then I definitely suggest giving it a look. I love that place! Mostly for browsing though, as their displays are to die for and so aesthetically pleasing, that you leave feeling like you should have taken pictures of everything.
Last on my list is Zara’s home section. I went there a lot when I lived in Brighton and while they do have some really cool things, they tend to be quite pricey. The quality of the items are good though so you definitely get your money’s worth. I especially like to look at their side tables. They have a lot of cool wooden ones that makes me think I need more of those kinds of things in my own living room.
A bonus mention is Søstrene Grene. It’s a small-ish shop that deals in both home decor and DIY but also organic, eco-friendly food products and candies. Every time I walk in there, I can instantly feel myself relaxing. They always have classical music (or Christmas music during Christmas) playing over the speaker system and a great display of all sort of cute little bits and bobs that you know you don’t need but want anyway. In Denmark they also sell really good salt licorice there so if you’re ever in need of those, I recommend looking there!
