A Sunday Retrospective

Every Sunday we like to lie on the sofa, and catch up with reading magazines and blogs. We love vintage home magazines here at Your Vintage Life and none come better than wedding magazines. Not only are they filled with images of beautiful brides but we especially love the ideas, articles and adverts to inspire wedding lists.

We love these adverts for mid-century furniture including the big brands G Plan and Ercol.

They are designed to create an air of aspiration: if you buy into these looks then you too will have a glamorous lifestyle. Here are some of our favourites.

vintage 1969 Woman Bride and Home: G Plan, “We’d rather come home to a beautiful corner than a whole roomful of clutter” (something we could all learn from)


1969, Woman Bride and Home. McIntosh: ” The latest dining suite breaks most of the rules. And gets away with it.” Note the Blue Nun wine on the table and cocktail sausages on stocks…so glam!

1969, Woman Bride and Home. Ercol: “Make a corner in Ercol comfort”. More of a traditional look that was popular at the time.



I love
