Whoever thought grandma-chic would be a trend everyone would be wearing? Well, now this style has made its way to home decor. Grandmillenial is all things patterns and texture—a great way to show off your individuality. But they’re not the floral couches at your grandparents’ house that were covered with plastic.
Instead, think skirted tables, floral wallpaper, patterned upholstery, and stained furniture. To keep it from looking too old-timey, mix some modern elements in the decor. Classic prints like toile, chintz, and plaid are a good places to start incorporating the grandmillenial trend. But, don’t forget about the embellishments—ruffles, fringe, and pleats will complete the look.
In regards to furniture, darker stained woods like walnut and cherry make rooms look historical. To keep the decor fresh and to balance the look, add some abstract art and metallic accents.
Make sure you don’t over decorate by choosing fabrics with bold designs and patterns that are in the same color family. The most important thing when it comes to pulling off the grandmillenial trend is to get pieces that you love, because like all trends it will go out of style, and you don’t want to be left with things that don’t fit in with your design aesthetic.
