One of the hottest interior design trends this year has got our inner flower girl crying out for joy – bold granny florals. Drawing inspiration from big nostalgic florals from the past, these prints would remind you of all the good things about your grandmother – the pastel colour palettes coupled with a sensitivity for beautiful prints. Given how eye-catching granny floral prints are, we say use them sparingly to create an eclectic and effortless thrown-together look. Here are some stylish ways to incorporate this beautiful trend in your home.

The most simple and foolproof way to incorporate granny florals into your home is through beautiful wall art. We love this dainty watercolour painting and its beautiful pastel colours that help to inject a breath of fresh air into the room. We are also absolutely crazy about the subtle but elegant floral prints on the carpet – a smart way of adding interest to the room, without trying too hard.
Alternatively, for more adventurous homeowners, consider decorating one side of your wall with printed wallpapers. This will help to break up the monotony of your walls, and create the illusion of a “special corner” in the room. Given the complexity of the wall design, choose solid-tone furniture pieces that complement the colour scheme of the floral prints.

If your house is decorated in a neutral colour palette, granny floral curtains are a great way to shake things up and liven up the entire space. Apart from window curtains, you may also wish to consider a floral shower curtain – definitely a splash of colour that would bring a smile to your face!

Granny floral furniture would definitely be right up the alley of people who are a fan of the bohemian chic aesthetic. Choose a piece of granny floral furniture as the statement piece of the room, and mix and match the other items around it! A great example would be this apartment above, which has contrasted the impeccable floral armchair with the distressed and grunginess of industrial interior items.

Work granny florals into your bedroom through your bed sheets. The trick to not overdoing it? First, go bigger with the size of the prints (rather than small), so that the bed sheets do not look too visually cluttered and busy. Second, select more subdued tone such as monotones or neutrals to maintain a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere in your bedroom.
