Grandmillennial style has been described as a layered, youthful take on Grandma’s traditional style. Think, contemporary furniture used by someone in their 30s happily living alongside chintz floral patterns, busy wallpaper, chinoiserie, drapery, fringe, and trim.
This is not the Instagram look, it’s the antithesis of that highly stylized approach, instead being both wild and curated at the same time. Here are 5 ways to get the look.
Gingham & Patterns Galore
I just ADORE the use of gingham and different scales of check patterns here, combined with repeated square shapes for a fresh, clean look! Plus, the copper pendant lights give a satisfying finish to the space.
Bring history into your home and make it your own. The key is to revamp vintage furniture with a new fabric or finish, then complete the look with personal touches, like artwork and sculpture, mirrors and vases, and plants.
Can you imagine your kids or grandkids having sleepovers and late nights with flashlights under the covers in this cozy attic?
Gather collections of Grandma’s beautiful things in small groupings for a big effect. The blue plate color repeated in the piping on the pillowcases is a nice touch in this arrangement.
Grandmillennial style exhibits an appreciation for heritage and timeless vintage items. Pairing Grandmillennial with Americana-inspired pieces works because both design movements are rooted in a love of history and tradition.
