CHORNOBYL, UKRAINE - SEPTEMBER 29: A house stands in the abandoned village of Zalisya located inside the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone on September 29, 2015 near Chornobyl, Ukraine. Zalisya, a village that before 1986 had a population of approximately 3,000, lies about 15 kilometers south of the former Chernobyl nuclear power plant, where in 1986 workers inadvertantly caused reactor number four to explode, creating the worst nuclear accident in history. Authorities evacuated 120,000 people, incuding the residents of Zalisya and 85 other villages, as well as of the towns of Chornobyl and Pripyat. Today the Zalisya site stands abandoned and overgrown with trees and vegetation. (Photo by Sean Gallup/Getty Images)

The grandmillennial design is gradually becoming en vogue in recent times. In case you are unsure of what the Grandmillennial design is all about, let me explain.

According to Manhattan-based interior designer Ariel Okin,  ‘grandmillennial’ is really a ‘New Traditionalist’—someone who has an appreciation for the past”. The design has more to do with prints, ruffles, embroidered linens, chintz, and bright colors.

One can also describe the grandmillennial design as old school, but people are slowly gravitating toward the direction of old school designs in this modern era.  “It’s been surprising to see the types of things our twenty- and thirty-something customers are going crazy for. —Fermoie pleated lampshades, botanical prints, framed Gracie wall covering panels we can’t keep in stock,” says Berry, who opened her own shop, Amy Berry Home.

So how do you know if you are a true grandmillennial? Well if you finding yourself liking needlepoint pillows, matching your wallpaper and window treatments or loving Blue-and-white, then you might just be a grandmillennial.
