granny chic

I have always been enamored by simple little things like pretty little teacups, old wallpaper, crochet pillows and needlepoint wall art, evident in some of my home d├ęcor. I didn’t realize there was a name for it: GRANNY CHIC. When a reader told me of such a trend maybe coming back again, I quickly went to Flickr and look for some inspiration, and sure enough I found this group and all their charming granny home decor goodness which all evokes comfort, familiarity and nostalgia.

I may have to do a shop update with these theme soon. I just realized I have accumulated lots of items that falls under this category. By the way, I do my shop updates now where I pick several items from my inventory with a concurrent theme and list them in the shop on Mondays.

  12. Yes, this stuff is totally in! A lot of people are even into "granny chic" clothes!! I feel so funny tagging an etsy item with "granny," but it seems to work out well. :)

    Oh, I LOVE the wallpaper in that second to last photo!
