One of the more nostalgic bedroom trends is predicting will be big is grandma chic. With the upturn in thrifting and upcycling furniture, it’s probably no big surprise that this trend is coming into its own, after all, doesn’t granny always advise against throwing anything away?
To get the look, think frills, lace, and the all-important florals, which Lucy Ackroyd, head of design at Christy, says are the mainstay for this trend.
“Floral bedding is a must to achieve this aesthetic and to elevate the look to its full potential, choose fitted bed sheets that come with over-the-top frills to add texture," she advises. "Furthermore, treat your bedside table to a tasseled lampshade"
Another way to get an injection of vintage florals is to introduce granny-esque patterns into curtains or rugs – a perfect solution if floral wallpaper is too much for your tastes!
“Choosing statement flooring is a clever way of grounding the look,” says Jemma from Carpetright. "For those looking to spruce up a room adding a rug is a simple way of achieving this look, however, for a statement look that lends a touch of luxury to proceedings, there's nothing like a beautifully patterned wall-to-wall carpet. It helps to elevate the look and feel of the space and provides pattern and color for all the other accessories and décor to combine with."
For the finishing touches, Lucy advises a trip to a charity shop or second-hand store to get the look. “Repurpose old china as trinkets for jewelry, find the most unusual vase for a fresh bunch of flowers, or choose some old paintings to adorn your walls," she advises. "This is a great way to create a bedroom that is all your own, completely unique, and full of character."
