Layered florals and patterns in the granny chic style

Arts and Crafts Interior Design is So In – Granny Chic Up Your Home!

If you love classic interiors with a cosy twist, then ‘granny chic’ is the style for you. This arts and crafts interior design movement, also known as ‘grandma chic’ or ‘grandmillennial’ is a marriage of old and new. Forget minimalism, bare surfaces are out! Instead, layer objects you love to create interesting displays. 

Think of it as a celebration of light, colour, patterns, and florals, brought together to create a welcoming place to gather.  

Keen to create your own ‘granny chic’ sanctuary? The May Gibbs range is the perfect place to start!
