It’s hard to put your finger on this trend but in essence this trend accepts traditional maximilism into the modern home. Some millenials just aren’t satisfied with minimalist spectrum from whites to greys and want some more traditional bright rooms with patterns, frills and chintz to express their true personality. In the bedroom, if nowhere else, it’s truly the place where you have to show who you are through the design of your room. We wholefully embrace grandmillenial designs at The Original Bed Co.
Grandmillenial design is a reaction to the almost sterile clean design that’s so popular today. The minimalist design that’s inescapable in our everyday lives. This maximalist design trend reminds millenials of their grandma’s house. Cozy, warm and safe.

Grandmillenial design glorifies eccentric maximalism which a touch of English cottage. It is, however, slightly different that true traditional. Like a homage to the past. Some describe it as ‘granny chic’.

Traditional iron beds with brass finials work a treat in a grandmillenial bedroom. Their design fits perfectly well with a busy look alongside bright floral patterns, white lacey frills and wall panelings.
Floral patterns, with brighter colours are very much at home in a grandmillenial bedroom. Anything which would usually be considered outdated (a very Laura Ashley style) is popular amongst grandmillenialists.
