Do you consider yourself a grandmillennial? A friend of mine sent me a link to this article and said: “This is you.” Ha! Upon reflection, I’m fairly certain I qualify, though I tend to favor a mix of styles in my own home. We have some sleek and modern pieces, some more casual coastal pieces, some Ralph Lauren-esque, masculine pieces, and then, for example, an outrageous set of antique bronze candle sconces with bows at the top I scored on Etsy a few weeks ago that epitomize the grandmillennial vibe. (These are similar.) I bought them to flank an enormous portrait we have hanging in our dining room — and so the room is truly a mix of the modern and the traditional, with hints of the grandmillennial tucked in for good measure.
Below, sharing some of my favorite grandmillennial finds, whether you’re full-force or just dipping your toe in the pool:
JADEITE TUMBLERS (WOULD BE PRETTY AS BUD VASES WITH PEONIES TUCKED IN EACH)
And to get the grandmillennial vibe in your wardrobe: chintz tote, Tabitha Simmons mules, Emilia Wickstead magic, anything by Batsheva, floral blouse ($70!), Thierry Colson top, HHH nap dresses, wicker elephant bag.
P.P.S. Remember how my old apartment was named Louise? I feel like my new one might be named Charlotte — a little younger but still high maintenance, a little bit stuck in her ways. We have arched doorways and a very traditional layout (no open floor plans), but high ceilings and lots of dramatic molding.
P.P.P.S. Thoughts on decorating a studio apartment, among other things.
