Wallpaper is arguably an old-fashion choice when it comes to wall coverings, however it has made a massive comeback in recent years, especially if you want to implement the grandmillennial trend in your home. Whimsical floral designs are a winner for this look – match your wallpaper to your personal taste, whether it be to suit more of a darker colour palette or incorporating your favourite flower, for example.
Florals, florals and more florals!
At the heart of the grandmillennial trend is paying homage to old-fashioned ‘granny-style’ interiors – a big element of which is florals. More is definitely more with this look – think maximalist interiors at its finest.
Layer different sized floral patterns on top of each other through your choice of soft furnishings, wall coverings and accessories.
Incorporate the grandmillenial trend into any room of the home through your choice of lighting. Fringe lighting is synonymous with the 1920s and the flapper era, whereas more graphic circular designs evoke images of the 1970s – as long as your lighting has an essence of vintage charm about it will definitely shout grandmillennial.
