Nostalgic Yet Trendy! Charm Your Space with Grandmillennial Home Decor

If you love to embrace the latest decorating trend, but you still crave the warm nostalgia of vintage decor, the grandmillennial style is for you! Also dubbed “granny chic,” grandmillennial home decor is a fresh take on all your fond memories of grandma’s house. The secret to keeping this style looking modern is to blend heirloom-style pieces with solid colors and transitional decor. Even the bold appearance of contemporary furnishings can be softened with grandmillennial accessories.

Some hallmarks of the grandmillennial style include classic patterns like floral, toile, and plaid. Floral wallpaper is a staple of this decorating trend, but if you’re not ready to make that leap, you can still make a statement with toile curtains, a petal-dappled area rug, or bouquet-patterned bedding. Among all the lovely flowers abundant in this style, you’ll also find wicker furniture, throw pillows with needlepoint or tassels, Asian-inspired influences, elaborate chandeliers, and pleated-shade lamps.

Now is the time to find your own quirky take on grandmillennial home decor! Take a look at the room we’ve decorated in this fun style. Click on the image to shop the look on the Touch of Class® site.

French Country Bedding – Perfectly Pastoral!

Écoute! It’s time for a lesson in French—French country decor, that is! A pastoral yet elegant decorating style, French country decor is characterized by its vintage accents and emblematic color schemes. You can preen a bedroom to Parisian perfection with French country bedding. Floral patterns and primary colors offset by timeworn neutrals make for a beautiful, rustic bedspread.

Named for a French country manor, the Chateau bedspread is a rubicund palette of red, blue, green, and off-white. Its sister, the Chalet, receives its moniker from the Alpine cottage with a wide, sloping roof built to divert heavy snows. Appropriately, an arctic assortment of blue, cream, tan, indigo, and off-white tinges this bedding. Both are dappled with an allover vertical diamond pattern, and the vermicelli quilting provides a distinctly provincial look. Spanning the off-white bands at the top and along the bottom edges, a parade of flowers ties in the flourishing fields of the French countryside.

Chateau Rouge and Chalet Bleu are cultured without being too frou-frou or fussy. Gusseted, split corners keep them compact and low-key, but the Old World patterns and pleasing colors are what lend these bedspreads their quaint appeal.

Whether it is charmingly pastoral or luxuriously opulent, French bedding will awaken your bedroom and give it a fresh new look.
