“People usually are the happiest at home.”
Hello, young Padawan
Today, we are doing the second volume of our little series on vintage at home (see the first here), old things that allow us to have an interior that resembles us without breaking the bank, and above all, to bring a little authenticity in this assembly-line world, in this gray world, where everything is formatted, where even people end up becoming identical and bland as they copy each other, from one city to another, from one age to another, and even from one country to another.
We have never seen so much conformism, whether in fashion or decoration, yet we are at the peak of individualism. Should we establish a correlation here? Obviously.
Our consumer society, a real cancer metastasizing the West, will have formatted us much more severely than any dystopian novel, any despot, or any army of madmen.
We are now identical, and I learned of a possible return to the school uniform in France. Ubiquitous. Will this allow new generations to escape this condition, or will it contribute to pushing us into dictatorial horror, the last stage of the ultimate formatting? Nobody knows the future, but I have my ideas on that point.
Ah, you wouldn’t have seen that coming from sociology in decoration! And why not some philosophy in cooking? Wait, it’s coming in a few weeks and is not even a joke.
There are no more small struggles at the point where we are, so every act of our life must be militant from this day on if you haven’t started yet. Translation: your credit card is your ballot. So be careful where you put your bucks.
Let’s reclaim our taste and our style. Let’s rediscover ourselves, quite simply, to have an interior that suits us and not a tasteless and soulless Pinterest decor. Do you like duck blue, even if we are in fashion for beige and whites? Know that your faithful servant does too, so repeat after me: “I’m keeping my duck blue and will only change when I want it. Kind regards, quack”.
Now that the foundations are laid, in the first article (here), we focused on “how to acquire vintage at reasonable prices,” then I shared with you some trinkets and some old books.
For this new post, we will see pretty tableware, inexpensive objects, and relatively easy to acquire, with some bonuses, like a small piece of furniture full of charm and a set of books by one of my favorite classic authors.
And here’s the second part. I hope you got some ideas for your personal decor or appreciated my love for teacups, lol.
I wish you a great weekend, and see you on Friday!
