Styling the grand- millennial way

Whether you call it “grandmillennial” or “granny chic,” old-school maximalist design trends – think ruffles, tassels, scalloped trims and chintz everything – continue to gain momentum in the interiors world. Some say the fad evokes the nostalgia of pre-pandemic times, while others argue that it celebrates traditional patterns and design motifs that simply stand the test of time.
