When we think of Grandma’s house, we immediately picture wicker chairs, floral pillows and vintage furniture that could crumble at any second. While it doesn’t suit everyone’s personal taste, millennials are purposely flocking to these Airbnb rentals in an attempt to channel their inner grandmillennial aesthetic.
So, what is a “grandmillennial”? Basically, it refers to millennials who have an affinity for home decor trends that the general public might consider outdated. (Think clashing patterns, unnecessary gold finishings and draped curtains that look straight out of another time period.) The grandmillennial aesthetic aims to rekindle memories of childhood, providing a sense of nostalgia and comfort that can only remind you of Grandma’s house.
