As a design scheme rooted in maximalism, it can be easy to overdo the grandmillennial aesthetic to the point where your living space feels cluttered.
Imane Fiocchi, founder of the Neon Lace Company, says of The Kitchn that the key to great millennial decor is to start small and grow your collection over time. “Grandmillennial style particularly celebrates ‘collecting’ heirlooms, but make sure you start your collections with a certain point of view,” she said. “Small items like teacups and saucers are a good place to start, so show them off to your guests and slowly collect more over time.”
Becky Nielsen, interior designer and founder of Becky Nielsen Interiors, agreed, adding, “Displaying checkered or monogrammed tea towels, a vintage cookbook, a rustic bowl of apples, or a candle on a blue and white plate will add warmth to your kitchen and layers.”
She added that it’s a good way to start small with a few millennial-inspired pieces before deciding if you’re ready to commit to a space entirely inspired by the aesthetic. Once you’ve decided to commit, you can make bigger and bolder changes such as: B. Replacing appliances and painting your kitchen cabinets and walls.
