Given the unprecedented year that 2020 turned out to be, it's perhaps no surprise that it's had significant impact on design trends and the interior spaces we've chosen to spend time in - and that's certainly been reflected in what we've been hanging on our walls.
2020 and all that it's brought with it has, understandably, brought an urge to nest for many of us. Whether we've been stuck at home a little or a lot, it's not surprise we've devoted more time and energy to adorning our homes and interiors with things we love and that make us feel safe and secure.
Increasingly, the clean lines and minimimalism that were the trademark of Australian interiors for so long are disappearing under a tsunami of texture and pattern and floral and chintz. Love it or loathe it, maximalism might be here to stay - at least for a while yet.
This trend towards wallpaper and lace and mismatched floral prints has been given a name - grandmillenial style - or, simply, Granny Chic.
Incorporating grandmillenial wall art into your space
Florals and lace and pattern oh my!
If the thought of filling your house with your Nanna's mothballed sheet sets and lace tablecloths leaves you less than thrilled, there's good news.
Incorporating some layered textural pieces into your wall art is a great way to get some of the warm, layered, cocoon-y feels into your space without going full Grandma.
We've pulled together a few pieces from our collection to give you some ideas:
These prints of richly textured pieces give a modern take on florals, meaning they work well in classic or contemporary spaces. Mix and match with your other patterns and fabrics for full Granny Chic-cred.
Chinoiserie wall art
Chinoiserie is also having a moment in interiors and, of course, wall art. This Western adaptation of Eastern style features ornate Chinese-inspired drawings - usually of plants and birds.
