Something Old, Something New – Designing for Millennial’s
Millennials are the generation who were born in the late eighties come early nineties and have lived through the end of not a decade, but an actual millennia. Some called them ‘Generation X’ while others called them ‘Troublemakers’ – but what Millenials turned out to be, was a hybrid mix of old and new. Millenials had lived through the generation gap, through the evolution of technology, and through the start of a new era – and such, their tastes run a truly avant garde way. As they themselves are a dichotomy of eras, when we design interiors for them, they need to be just as diverse. A Millennial style interior would therefore incorporate a classy, dated vibe that is amalgamated seamlessly with a rather contemporary style. It is very tricky and challenging to incorporate the old into the new, and only experience can teach you how. So today, we would be looking at a few interiors that might fall well into the millennial concept.
Light and Bright
This interior is perfectly Millennial material as it has all the trappings of the old and new combined together in a balanced symphony. The light pastel browns that create most of the color palate make for a warm, welcoming ambiance, which would have been quite drab, had the designers not incorporated the idea of the shocking pink bed upholstery. That one big splash of color is what sets this entire bedroom scheme apart in the best way.
This book nook is the ultimate millennial retreat. With a fine gauzy yet unique wallpaper texture and an indentured neo classical style formation that merges well with the kitsch ambiance of the sitting nook. The overall look is very classy and unique, while the fixtures take on an austerity without a stark.
Millennials have witnessed the trend of house design change from a traditional separate individual family home to a single apartment nit with personalized flairs. This kitchen come dining combination may not be unique anymore, but is definitely the Millennial ‘it’ when it comes to combing forms and functions.
Where arts were a subject that used to be frowned upon, the millennial generation has watched it reach its peak, and appreciate it all the same. Some of them are even great artists themselves, so having an interior space that appreciates art and artwork is a must in any Millennial home.
Vintage is a very self-depreciating concept, and ones that Millennials truly appreciate. Its subtle charm and semi retro vibes are what makes it a rather enchanting incorporating in any interior setting and looking at this mint green apparel, it can imbue a sense of comfort in its surroundings too.
