10 ideas of the interior of our grandmothers who will not go out of fashion
And do not think that the décor items of our grandmothers have long been used by no one and they are out of fashion. Not at all! On the contrary, now retro style is at the peak of popularity. The main thing is to approach the design of a modern apartment wisely and not to copy with one hundred percent accuracy the style of the 70s and 80s. But it is very much recommended to dilute with vintage things a modern design. This will immediately give you a good taste.
We collected 10 things that our grandmother loved to use in the design of the apartment, which have not lost their relevance in our days. See and be inspired!
1. Wallpaper in flower
Firstly, it is very cute. And secondly, stylish. The main thing is not to turn the house into a solid garden of flowers, but, for example, use wallpaper in a flower in one of the rooms or on one of the walls.Do not forget to add them with curtains, carpets and rugs in the same romantic colors, vintage decor items and lively bouquets!

2. Knitted lace napkins
Remember how grandmother loved these napkins? Yes, and made them their own hands. By the way, you can also try to link this home accessory on your own (good on YouTube there are a lot of videos with similar master classes). Although now these napkins, which have already become vintage, are sold in stores (in the same Zara Home and H & M Home).
3. Metal bed
Now the metal bed belongs to retrostyle and sold for a lot of money. So if you inherited it, you are lucky! Feel free to repaint this piece of furniture necessary for any home into your favorite color and feel yourself a princess. Or the queen.
4. Sideboard with dishes
From the end of the 90s, it was considered as outdated to show dishes to all guests. But everything changes. Nowadays, cabinets with huge glasses, through which the service is visible, are again at the peak of popularity! Just do not put it in the room, as our grandmothers did, it looks best in the kitchen and in the dining room.
5. Patterned lace curtains
Recently, more and more bloggers began to appear on Instagram, who are offering to buy patterns with lace curtains from them. Yes, yes, the ones that hung on the eaves in the 70s and 80s. They, by the way, look especially beautiful in bright kitchens with large windows. We advise!
6. Houseplants on the windowsill
Houseplants definitely never go out of style! They create a special comfort and warmth in the house. You can also follow the example of our grandmothers and grow useful plants on the windowsills. What about mint? It can then be added to tea or face masks.
7. Decorative plates on the wall
Decorative plates on the walls can look very beautiful! Especially if they are in color and shape fit the design of the apartment. Do not believe? See the photo above.
8. Wicker basket
Your grandmother probably kept a ball of thread or a newspaper with books in a wicker basket. And we suggest putting shells, scented candles, small flower pots into this accessory. Unusual and stylish.
9. Suitcase in a prominent place.
Soviet luggage in our time is a luxury. It is not necessary to go with him on holiday in Saint-Tropez, but to make it a decor object is necessary.Designers often use their grandmothers' suitcases as a coffee table or bedside table. It looks very cool!
10. Bright carpet
Who said this moveton? A bright ornamental carpet can be a single or additional bright accent. The only rule: the furniture should be modern and preferably light.
