It’s quite unique the sight really, my grandparents’ place.
For some reason it feels like they’re starting to get a lot less common, old people who don’t at all move with the times. Then again, I don’t see a lot of old people in my life (yet), so what do I know? Still, I’ve seen nothing quite like my grandparents. Aside from an HD television, there isn’t much in their house that stands out as modern. Quite the opposite, most of their furniture, decoration and belongings can be considered antique!
They’re old-fashioned people too, but what did you expect. They live in a relatively small, largely religious town. Not many pushes for change occur there, much less come to shove. Still, their living room is a sight to behold. Nearly identical to how I experienced it crawling around as a toddler. Except nowadays it feels even more ancient, in a classy way.
As much as I love sleek, modern interior design, there’s something inherently homey about older-than-vintage style like that. Sure, modern living spaces can be really comfy, but it’ll never remind you of the smell of grandmothers.
Does that sound weird? It probably does, but I’m fairly sure it’s a relatable weird.
