House to Home
During the 1980's my family did the whole US country look, my parents built a house from the Southern Living architectural plans books and surrounded it with cottage gardens. Our home was filled with braided rugs, quilts, checked and plaid fabrics, travel trunks as side tables, coffee tables, as blanket boxes at the end of beds. Mail boxes, decorative pieces and American pressed brass and tin lights were purchased and rewired. Even though most of that is gone now, a few things have stayed in our homes. Us kids have travel trunks/blanket boxes and the old quilts are still used on cold winter's nights.
Looking at theses images above just reminds me that practical, functional furniture will always find a home in my house!
