It happens every time we get even the slightest change in season. All it takes is a few degrees change in temperature, a couple more minutes of daylight, the whiff of a BBQ in the air and we instantly want to completely redecorate our homes and fill them with all the beachy vibes. Unfortunately, since turning our homes into some kind of coastal retreat every summer isn't an option for most, we have to look for smaller, more budget friendly solutions. Enter the H&M Home clearance sale (opens in new tab)... and the five best buys for summer.

1. A classic striped cushion

Does anything make a house feel more summery than a few blue and white striped cushions? There are plenty to choose from in the H&M Home sale too; we love this simple striped cushion cover (opens in new tab), but mix it with this red variation (opens in new tab) for even more coastal vibes.

2. A matching striped throw 

Oh look, more stripes! This linen bedspread (opens in new tab) comes in grey or blue and would look gorgeous either effortlessly heaped at the end of a bed or thrown over a sofa for a quick summer update.

3. Some cute wire storage

And to roll your new striped throw into, a stylish wire basket (opens in new tab)(now only £12!)...

4. A boho-style rug

Boho style is synonymous with summer: all those muted hues and tons of texture. Add a touch the laid-back feels with this wool-blend rug (opens in new tab); it's now only £25 in the H&M sale. Layer it with a larger jute jug to complete the look. 

Head over to our boho design ideas too, for loads more inspiration.

5. A summery scented candle

Add to those holiday vibes going on in your home with a deliciously scented candle (opens in new tab). You are probably thinking what on earth does dry hay smell like? Well just imagine the scent of grass being cut on a really warm day mingled with fresh flowers. Layer it up with some lighter, fresh smells (something like Lemongrass (opens in new tab)) for even more of a summer scent. Check out more of our favourite summer scented candles
