Grandmillennial style has been a big design trend throughout 2020 and continues to be on the rise. It is a throwback to more of a classic, nostalgic, traditional style adding a modern twist. Moving away from the current minimalist to a maximalism aesthetic.  A few of the elements found in this style are needle point pillows, fine china, florals, wicker, embroidered linens, classic wallpaper, ruffles, pleated lampshades, antiques, vintage collections and textiles with lots of pattern and bold colour.

An inexpensive way to try this design style is to hit your local thrift store for lots of vintage finds. Here are a few items I found at my local Salvation Army Thrift Store that work with this design aesthetic.

 

Thrifting for Grandmillenial elements is a fabulous way to try out this nostalgic trend. Make sure to hit your local thrift store. Happy thrifting!
