What is Grandmillennial Design and How to Incorporate it into Your Home

Grandmillennial design has seen a recent surge but is by no means a new trend. Sometimes called granny chic, this style of decorating your home mixes antique and vintage pieces with modern accents. Blending modern and contemporary styles creates a unique, comfortable, as well as relaxing environment in your home.

There are a variety of ways to tap into this nostalgic and fresh design. Selecting vintage furniture, combining neutral and pastel color schemes, incorporating fabrics with bold patterns that mirror the color scheme of the room are just a few suggestions for those looking to style their home granny chic.  

An easy way to bring grandmillennial design into your home is to add framed art into different rooms. 

Art in A Modern Space – Effectively Decorating with Traditional Art

What kind of art can you hang in your home or office? The answer to this question, naturally, depends on your taste and your goals for decor. One thing many wonder about is how to add art to a modern space. Whether your modern space is designed by a cool neutral color palette or the latest modern architecture, it’s still possible to find aesthetic framed art without falling back on abstract sculpture.

Framed traditional artwork isn’t just one style. It includes every palette of colors and moods. You can hang painted illustrations on a clean canvas background or detailed cafe vistas. Postoral vista, gardens, and forest artwork can create a window into another place hanging on your wall, while traditional portraits and still-life paintings can reflect the themes in a trendy space.

Expressionist Art: Time to Feel Your Feelings

Self-expression may be pretty popular right now, but it’s far from a new idea. In fact, the “Express Yourself” movement, among artists at least, started early on in the 20th century, if not before. The artists of the Expressionist era were all about feeling your feelings, even the uncomfortable ones. Expressionist art isn’t afraid to distort reality or use a ton of paint for the sake of emotion.

If we’re being totally fair, you can find emotionally expressive art in every single artistic era (after all, it’s what artists do best!) But the official expressionists were a special group. We’ll highlight a few in this post.

Unique Art Your Guests Will Remember

At a point in our not-to-distant past, the term ‘unique art’ stood as a redundancy. What was art, if not a one-of-a-kind creation? From paintings to sculpture to photography, artists created unique pieces, viewed and bought by others. But today, in a world of prints, copies, and copycats, it’s harder to find art that is truly unique. Now, don’t get us wrong, re-printing provides an amazing opportunity for the famous works of historical artists to be viewed in homes around the world. But when you’re looking for something new, a piece your guests have never seen before, it makes your job a little harder.

Unique art prints come from a variety of places. You may be looking for a print by a mostly-unknown artist, or a lesser-known work of an artist you have admired your whole life. We picked out our favorite rare, strange, and unknown pieces to showcase to you in this post… and we encourage you to dig for others we didn’t even think of!
