Recently, a trend that Americans have dubbed 'granny chic' or 'Grandmillenian' has taken hold. The idea is to create an environment that recalls the homes of elegant ladies by using faux-demodé patterns combined with modern elements such as works of art or furniture. Let's see together how to create a granny chic environment in a few simple steps.
Floral wallpaper is a must. Forgotten in the archives and in the old houses - in fact - of our grandmothers, floral wallpaper is finally (re) having its moment. Many reinterpretations of colors and shapes and pattern repetitions. The use of exotic plants, for example as in the splendid Le Palmier de Comoglio (bottom left photo) or a composition of floral chinoiserie such as Le Paravent Chinois (bottom right photo ), both signed Braquenié.
If flowers don't convince you, we offer you a valid alternative that remains an immortal style in interior design: the toile de jouy. Born in France in the 17th century, it was a favorite of Marie Antoinette . More recently it has experienced an important moment in fashion thanks to Maria Grazia Chiuri who revisited it for Dior a few years ago. In short, queens of all times love it and we offer it to you in its most classic versions and modern reinterpretations such as the Chinese Toile by Cole&Son which we find elegant, fun and absolutely original (photo below).
Both flowers and jouy toile lend themselves to being used as wallpaper and fabrics, but if we really had to choose a fabric to cover your furniture (or curtains, for those who really dare...) the right choice would be the velvet.
With a solid color velvet you can combine and choose bright colors that contrast with the rest of the room. One of the most loved velvets by far for its softness, brilliance and choice of colors is Adamo&Eva by Dedar.
