Loving this view sitting on the sofa this morning. Really pleased with how my vintage Dyrlund is looking in the lounge. Still need to faff a bit more with my plate collection to get it looking tip top though. In writing the words "plate collection" I have just realised that I am turning into my Grandma! She had plates on the wall above the window in her front room and I always thought it looked a bit random. But here I am with my own collection of plates on display! I'm sure I read somewhere that as well as inheriting DNA, we can be subliminally influenced in our interiors style by our family- nostalgia for what we were exposed to in our grandparents' home, or reaction against our parent's style... I guess it speaks to our concept of home?
My love for mid-century modern furniture is definitely informed by warm memories of visiting my paternal grandparents. And now I've realised I'm channelling my maternal Grandma with my plates!
What's your interior design inheritance? Do you think the theory stacks up?
