Watch out Modern Farmhouse, there's a new hot design style in town. Grandmillenial is a term used to describe a carefully curated home. Classic lines mix with modern accents. Rich wood tones layer with warm brass. To achieve this look, you must embrace mixing collections. Think your grandmothers hutch paired with abstract art and contemporary accessories. This trend is all about contrasting design elements and investing in classics to layer with today's trends. Below are our tips on achieving this look in your home;
-Invest in the Classics. Substantial elements like sofas, sideboards and dining tables are foundational items that can make or break a space. We recommend buying quality items with clean lines that will last you a lifetime.
-From the Ground Up. Finding the right area rug is essential. Not only will it help ground the space, it will help ensure there is a contrast between old and new. If your furniture is more contemporary, try a rug in a traditional Persian pattern. If your pieces are more traditional, add a bold geometric.
-Try the Trends. The best way to inject a fresh trend into your space is with your accents. Add a toss cushion in an of-the-moment print, add an accent chair in a bold colour, or add quirky accessories. These smaller details can keep your space feel current without committing.
-Love to Layer. In a Grandmillenial style space, artwork is a necessity. Vintage style portraits paired with bold abstracts create the perfect contrast. Layering artwork over a gilded framed mirror can also help achieve this curated look.
