2020 redefined everything around us especially our lifestyle and the relationship we have with our home. LockDowns, shutdowns, and being locked in our homes for almost half a year made us rethink how we use our homes. It’s time to shake it up when it comes to design! We’ve compiled four trends we’re seeing everywhere – read on to find out about Grandmillennial and Japandi styles.
When we listen to someone saying "grand millennial" the question arises - who is a grandmillennial??
Ranging in age from mid-20s to late-30s, grandmillennials have an affinity for design trends considered by mainstream culture to be “stuffy” or “outdated”—Laura Ashley prints, ruffles, embroidered linens. Unlike that of the late-aughts hipster, their taste for the antiquated isn’t ironic; it’s less twee than timeless. And although there’s a good bit of shared DNA with prep culture, the two terms aren’t entirely interchangeable; the grandmillennial is less Lilly Pulitzer, more faded D. Porthault.
In a rejection of modern and minimal design, vintage and maximalist styles are making their comeback. Millennials are deriving inspiration from their grandparents and are inspired by interior design they may have seen in childhood.
With bold colors and aesthetically pleasing, retro design elements, we’d say when you're looking out to buy yourself a luxury villa make sure that your new home in Goa, fits the bill.
Perhaps the best thing about grandmillennial style is that it’s approachable. It’s rooted in the warmth you felt in your grandmother’s home. It’s extra ruffles because the grandmillennials lived through the age of #YOLO and took it to heart. Why deny yourself the pleasure of a comfy sofa when you only live once?
We’re obsessed with nature right now! Its calming effects make it perfect for inclusion in your home design. A decor trend based on bringing nature to our homes seems idyllic. Nature and organic materials strongly remind us of the exterior life, creating mixed interiors with nature.
Take a cue from luxury villas available for sale in Goa by Veera Group. The surrounding verdant gardens and the vast skyline are like a blessing to relish from large windows everywhere in the home.
Smart systems are all the rage right now and one of the most popular controls is smart lighting. Instantly establish the desired mood of both your interiors and exteriors by automating your lighting system, allowing you to control when the lights come on, the brightness, and the hue, if you’re really bold.
So when you buy yourself a beach house in Goa with all luxury make sure that smart lighting is not amiss.
You may not think that Japan and Scandinavia have a lot in common, but when it comes to home design, they're a lot more similar than you may think. Each one's aesthetics focuses on simplicity, natural elements, and comfort, so it's no surprise that we're seeing more and more designers blend the two looks together and calling it "Japandi" (aka Japanese and Scandi). Though a relatively new trend, expect to see Japandi pop up on your Instagram feeds this year. Hallmarks are natural materials and emphasis on comfort.
Take everything to its essential quality and achieve simplicity.
