At the risk of sounding like a broken record, I just have to share this fabulous article from House & Home touting the rise of Grandmillennial Style. (I was also delighted to have been referenced!) For those of us who love traditional design, this is just such exciting news. This movement has been growing for some time now, but now that we are all confined to our homes, more than ever we want to create a beautiful sanctuary. House & Home says, “In a time of growing global unease, this comforting style is a small panacea for the unrest in the world. It’s also a reaction to the spare, Scandi minimalist aesthetic that, though photogenic, is somewhat generic.”
House & Home has identified 20 hallmarks of Grandmillennial Style:
1. Matching Layers: coordinating drapery, pleated bell lampshades and ultra-padded headboards!
3. Grand Chandeliers: Hello sparkling crystals, goodby funky!
9. Blue and white ginger jars
11. Floral wallpaper
12. Gold-leaf mirrors
13. Trellis Motifs
15. Gallery walls
18. Tropical touches
19. Skirted sofas
20. Sterling silver: This one is my own addition… I haven’t seen anyone really talking about it yet, but they will. This is a generation who appreciates the history and permanence of Nana’s silver. Furthermore, as we head into a recession, it is never a bad idea to have silver on hand.

A recent article from One Kings Lane features an interview with the legendary Carleton Varney and his thoughts on the future of decorating… After years of lamenting “young people who want fast design,” Mr. Varney finally has hope for the future generations of interior design…
“The Buatta-loving, ruffle-wearing grandmillennials are ready to take the helm and steer us into a brightly colored future, he says, though he warns that they’re up against a ‘very forceful opposite.’ Luckily, ‘there will always be a group that’s classic, and thank God they still want us to decorate for them.'” ~Carleton Varney via One Kings Lane
