20 decorative objects to acquire for a family home

1. A cast iron cookware set

Not only is the good old granny's cooking pot the queen of the family home atmosphere, but in addition, it is useful. The fact is that the cast iron cookware has lost none of its effectiveness, even works on induction hobs and is so trendy that it is found in a host of trendy colors!

2. Metal boxes and cutting boards

Recycled tea boxes, vintage bread box or brand new cake boxes, as long as they are made of metal with a retro design, everything works. And all family house decoration who respects himself must also have his lot of wooden cutting boards, different shapes for the decorative effect, just enough to boost the effect of metal boxes!

3. Embroidered pillows

A strand shabby chic, a little country house and frankly family house, the embroidered pillows seem straight from grandmother's wardrobe ... and are so retro that they become ultra-trendy. A shame, okay, but the result is there. And when you have fairy fingers, you can even consider embroidering them yourself.

4. A breakfast tray

Wisely placed against a wall, the wooden breakfast tray plays decorative objects. Once covered with croissants, it becomes practical for a breakfast in bed with the children! In both cases, family home effect guaranteed, especially if the tray is patinated with heart handles on the sides and a pretty tea cup placed on it.

5. A vintage fruit bowl

Who says family house said compote filled with fruit, placed on the counter, as if the children were going to disembark any minute and the parents went to the kitchen. If it's vintage, it's even better, handcrafted, just perfect ... but for the more timid, we can be satisfied with a more modern version in glass or porcelain.

6. Recovery cushion covers

We say salvage for the style, but we will have no trouble finding this type of cushion covers in the trade. And if you have a sewing machine, you can also settle for bargain hunting or buy a set of kitchen towels with a vintage look, you just have to sew them two right sides together on three sides, turn over, stuff and to close for family house style cushions in DIY!

7. A retro bedside lamp

The essential for family house light fixturesis to appear to go back several generations back, without losing elegance. The secret ? A lamp base with an artisanal look associated with a more sober lampshade, just to compensate. Textured and colorful, it's even better, especially with a decor in soft tones.

8. Wooden utensils

If you had to choose a cheap and essential utensil in a family home cooking, it would undoubtedly be the wooden spoon, used over the centuries to stir the stew and prevent curious fingers from pilfering cookies that are cooling down. The right idea? We mix wooden spoons, metal baskets, cutting boards, family silverware and checkered tea towels!

9. Glass vases

Vases and other trinkets in colored or textured glass have been inviting into decorative trends for a few seasons, and we haven't found any better way to slip in dried flowers… Just as trendy and 100% family house, by the way! Good news, you can find them both in decoration stores and flea markets, at all prices and in all styles, from the most neutral to the most vintage.

10. An enameled metal pitcher

Here is a small decorative object cheap, easy to find new or used, or even vintage in flea market. And the enameled metal pitcher can be used as a pitcher, carafe or vase, to welcome fresh flowers… or a bouquet of dried flowers, well done, you follow. The icing on the decor, in white, this essential of the family home is particularly easy to integrate!

11. Copper in the kitchen

When we talk about a family home, we can think of cast iron cookware and copper cookware. Or both, by the way! In any case, a touch of copper in the kitchen always has its small effect for an atmosphere a bit retro and frankly warm. This, whether it's a single pan or the whole family.

12. A quilted bedspread

The boutis is this quilted fabric stitched like an embroidery, typical of family house bedspread. Difficult to ignore, therefore, for a traditional atmosphere! We choose it in white for purity or pop color to wake up the decor, and we put it folded at the end of the bed rather than covering all the bedding, for a more modern look!

13. White dishes

We all had a grandmother's service in white porcelain enclosed in boxes in the attic. And if not, cheap replicas are legion in decoration stores or flea markets! Good news, white dishes do wonders on the family home decor, once displayed on open shelves or in glass cupboards.

14. Tea service

For a family snack or after Sunday lunch, we don't overlook tea or coffee. And we serve it in a nice service, please! Retro flowers, vintage white porcelain, handcrafted in stoneware, we have fun adapting the style of service to our desires. As long as the hot drinks are steaming and gathered with cups on a tray, family home effect is here !

15. Retro fittings

Half decorative object, half functional accessory, the retro fittings cost less than a designer vase but transforms the whole atmosphere of the kitchen. From the soulless room, we pass to the friendly room like in a family house, with a rustic touch that remains modern thanks to the contrast of black and white!

16. Ceramic plates

Side wall decor in a family home, nothing simpler than the plates! We offer ourselves a beautiful ceramic painted plate or we fill up on vintage plates, all we have to do is hang them on the wall like real works. With a large saucer or an accumulation of patterned plates, the result is graphic and traditional at the same time.

17. An old suitcase

And no, the suitcase does not necessarily need to be vintage, just as it is not necessarily new! It simply has to evoke travel, the past and family, whether its retro look comes from a brand new object or from a real old suitcase. We put it on the ground, we transform it into a table on legs or we put vinyls on it, everything is allowed in a family house.

18. Placemats

In a family home, you don't eat at the table, but on table linen. And what could be more familial than pretty placemats ? Not only are they decorative, but in addition they are practical, since they protect the table in the event of a task. And we can opt for braided versions in natural materials or in fabric for the traditional side, to mix with a nice table runner for the atmosphere!

19. A pretty mottled lamp

The advantage of a beautiful mottled lamp is that its design adds character to a family house style decoration, while giving the impression of having been passed on from generation to generation for decades. All this with a small lamp, which creates a cozy atmosphere when you turn it on, as chic on a desk with books as in the reading corner of the living room!

20. Big white candles

For the atmosphere as much as for the family home decor, beautiful white candles are unstoppable. Ultra-cozy when they are on, for an evening on the terrace or a convivial dinner, they can move around at will, do not cost much and can even play the centerpieces. And we can even opt for fake candles in a more durable version!
