We live in a historical home that was built in 1917. The house holds a lot of history, which I will get into in another blog post, but because of that historical significance I have been really unsure of painting…
Have you heard of the term grand millennial? It’s a term that’s been floating around for a few years now. It has come to mean a person who is technically a millennial but whose personal taste lean toward someone who is much older, like their grandma.

It lends itself to a traditional aesthetic. The color palette is warm but not too warm. Thank dusty pinks, jade blue and forest green. Tried and trusted traditional colors evoke a sense of warmth and comfort just like Christmas Eve in grandma‘s living room. I simply adore grand millennial style. It reminds me of the years I lived in England pouring over the Laura Ashley catalogs filled with pictures of damask covered living rooms in stately old homes that screamed refinement from a distant bygone era. Now many years later, I now live in my own little refined idyl, grand millennial is my Decor choice by choice. And that has been my driving force for decorating my living room and dining room and now finally my bedroom. It is however difficult to do it completely right with little ones. Too many chotckas don’t stand a chance. So I’m a minimalist grand millennial.
We were in the market for a new comforter set for our master bedroom and I decided to check out the offerings on macy’s.com. I was so excited to discover this gorgeous California king comforter set with eight pieces including throw pillows and two sets of shams. Not only does this comforter look gorgeous on our bed, it’s super comfortable and warm.
On another note I am satisfying my olfactory senses through a wonderful spray I have discovered from Bath and Bodyworks. It’s a gorgeous scent filled with sandalwood, patchouli and Bergamont called Fire essential oil mist.
Go check it out if you’re looking for some thing that smells very rich and very old. Grandma knew what she was talking about.
Until next time
