The Basics

Simple basic design is timeless. There are some great household staples out there that have been around for ages and whether in response to difficult financial times or a desire to embrace traditional values the trend for nostalgia is becoming increasingly obvious in the home.

At Homes & Dreams we love the aesthetics of good old fashioned kitchen classics. Take the humble wooden scrubbing brush! There is just something pleasing about using a natural wood and bristle brush rather that its modern plastic counterpart.

Practical and durable, a pressed glass lemon squeezer is a great tool to have in the kitchen for producing small amounts of citrus juice. Its not surprising that this age old design is still being used today!
There are some wonderful vintage classics out there still being produced. Take the glass Kilner Jar - both utilitarian and smart, they look and do a great job of storing dry goods or for preserving as they were originally intended.

These pared down, functional basics still do the job that they were intended to do when they were designed many years ago and in our opinion should continue to do so for many years to come.
