Interiors are Having a Senior Moment

November 30, 2015

Hurry head to your attic, local thrift store, and flea markets as a new treasure hunt is about to begin! Granny Chic is having its moment.

Who might love the Granny Chic look? Those who love an eclectic space, shabby chic and country styled interiors! That doesn’t mean that those who lean towards modern interiors can’t incorporate the style, though. Granny loves everyone! Love the ever popular botanical prints that are blooming everywhere at the moment? These florals are part of the Granny trend as well. Try using your botanicals in pillows, artwork or handpainted, mismatched teacups that can now be proudly displayed!

Wait…what’s the difference between Shabby Chic and Granny Chic?  While, Shabby Chic and Granny Chic both include furnishings with a purposefully distressed finish, think of Granny as more homely and comfortable than the pastel colors and romantic touches found in the Shabby Chic style.

While I love the trend of Granny Chic let’s not go too far here! Aim for touches of a Granny look without making it feel as if you stepped into your Granny’s house.

Who wouldn’t want to curl up in that bedroom? Granny Chic really is all about warm and cozy elements; even with this b&w wallpaper, it works beautifully with the rich textures in the room.

Starting with white/cream as your base — it works for both sofas, chairs and beds — then layer on a throw or add a patchwork pillow. Ready to update your walls?  Switch out a few pieces of art for plates (vintage or otherwise) and who can resist a new take on the cuckoo clock?

Are you ready to rock Granny’s style in your manicured home?
