I've been hearing the term 'Grandma Chic' for a few years now but I never really knew what it meant, so I went in search of it.
From the information I have gathered 'Grandma Chic' is a style for both home decorating and a style of clothing, and it's also a term that has been coined for 'women of the age of wisdom' who carry themselves with a style befitting elegance.
Decorating in the style of Grandma Chic is very much like decorating in the style of Shabby Chic, but you don't have to adhere to the strict guidelines of white and pastel that usually accompany the Shabby Chic palette. While Shabby Chic brings to mind light and airy, Grandma Chic can be all that, but it can also be dark and heavy.
