Vintage furniture, wallpaper, recycled wood: young people prefer décor that's affordable, cheerful and sustainable. A Millennial’s home might have industrial-vintage décor, pastel colours, finds from weekend markets, and affordable furniture. So should it be called eclectic? Retro? Industrial-urban? It’s not yet clear how to define Millennials’ style in a single word, because it’s a blend of all those things. Why choose just one approach when you can combine several?
Millennials – those born between 1980 and 1995 – are starting to make their mark on interior design. The ingredients of their preferred style are no surprise and they define a growing trend: touches of industrial and vintage style, flexible furniture for multi-functional spaces, timber, personalised neon, wallpaper, plants and natural fabrics are set to conquer home design in 2022 and beyond.
