Somehow, Zara, Arket and H&M's Interiors Sections Are Even Better in 2021

Much like our wardrobes, the start of a new year has us itching to give our interiors a bit of a refresh, too. With your festive decorations now packed away for another year, their absence might also highlight the things your home is lacking. Perhaps there's a bare corner that could really use some attention, or maybe your mantlepiece needs some adornment. Well, rest assured you needn't spend a small fortune to breathe a new lease of life into your living or bedroom, for the high street has already dropped some impressive new homeware collections.

This Zara chair was a 2020 best-seller. 

H&M continues to champion the neutral palette that worked so well for it last year, only this time around the brand has become more experimental with textures. Rattan, marble, velvet, and cotton come together to create a pared-back but cosy ambience in any room. Then there's Arket, which is serving up its own take on the eclectic interior movement, the minimal Scandi way. You'll find ceramic plant pots in happy colours, adorable cutlery to make every mealtime special, and a blanket so popular, we see it in the homes of just about every influencer we follow.

And finally, while the midcentury vibe is still evident at Zara, the brand is also taking the rustic interiors approach this season, with oversized jugs that double up as vases, rustic stools, and gingham fabrics covering cushions and throws. It's all very cottagecore, and we love it. Pick whichever theme suits your style best, then scroll below to see our favourite pieces from H&M, Arket and Zara for each look.
