How Has Your Childhood Home Influenced Your Design?

[We've always had a thing for stripes and we have an idea of why....]
We were inspired by our post yesterday about using family heirlooms in every day life (by the way we still don't know the name of the silverware pattern - if any else does?) to look around our space and see what other influences our family has had on our current design aesthetic. We think we put something together...

Our love of stripes in decor and the kitchen wallpaper from our childhood home. (Hello, 1970s /early 1980s) We found some old photos of our kitchen and definitely can identify it as our inspiration for current design. Yea, we sure do love stripes and seem to recreate this look in every rental we have ever had. It makes us happy and reminds us of that time.

What design in your home has been inspired by your own childhood home?
