Would you consider these items outdated or vintage?
Number Ten: Outdated window treatments.
I really do not want to hurt any one’s feelings, I am just trying to help! Really!
Number 9: Paint colors no longer in fashion.
House Beautiful 1966
I do not know which is worse, the dreadful faux gold paint on the cabinets or the fake fruit in the bowl. I remember my mom having that fake fruit on the counter.
Number Eight: Big brass chandeliers.
I offered advice here on how to update your brass lighting. Do it.
Number Seven: Avocado Appliances.
If you hold out a little longer, they will probably be back in style. Did you hear people are getting tired of the stainless steel look?
Number Six- Paneled Walls. The gentleman is extra on me.
Number Five: Old fashioned wallpaper.
House Beautiful 1968
Number Four: Dated bathroom light fixtures.
These were not the worst light fixtures in a bathroom I have seen. Believe me.
Number Three: Fake looking plastic flowers.
Oh, don’t even get me started! This one really bugs me. Do people seriously think others will be fooled into thinking they are real?
Number Two: Peeling linoleum floors!
And the Number One outdated decor item we can still find in a home today:
Please do yourself a favor and get rid of them. If they are sentimental- keep them in a drawer where you can see them but no one else can.
So there is my top ten list of out of vogue items. I might have to start another list because what about macrame plant hangers? Obsolete ashtrays?
I would not consider any of these items vintage. They are just ‘out’ in the design world today.
