It’s time to be schooled by the old-school. Here’s how to embrace the granny chic interior trend with Grandmillennial style
If you’re looking for an antidote to the stark minimalism of the Scandi-style hay day, stop looking because we’ve found it for you. Grandmillennial style is bold, punchy, patterned and colourful, and it’s here to stay.
You might also hear it referred to as “granny-chic” style thanks to its partiality for patterned floral wallpaper, antique pieces and gingham prints. But even though it takes its inspiration from traditional English country homes, don’t think of it as dull and stuffy, because it is in fact the opposite. Grandmillennial style takes a modern take on this look with bold colours and eclectic patterns.
To re-create this look at home try patterned wallpaper, rattan and cane furniture, gingham and floral prints, antique homewares and plenty of pastels. Here are a few of our top picks below:
