Grandmillennial Style…and ME!

“Ah! There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort.”

– Jane Austin

Hello, sweet friend

I hope you are doing well…

I’ve always enjoyed nostalgic cozy decor…

and these last couple of years have brought an even deeper desire for nostalgia

I love that it encapsulates the feelings of comfort from our mother’s, grandmother’s and great-grandmother’s homes, hence the nickname “Granny Chic”…

It makes my heart soooo happy that this style is making a comeback
among Grandmillennial’s (those ranging from their 20’s-mid 30’s) who are also desiring a bit of nostalgia and putting their own personality into this cozy style by adding a bit of modern…

in many ways the style leans toward a little old-fashioned… yet it is a vibe I have felt most comfortable with ever since I can remember…

since it allows for my personality to really shine through.

A Grandmillennial Style might include these beautiful design elements:

  • floral wallpaper
  • blue and white
  • skirted tables
  • block print
  • needlepoint pillows
  • embroidered linens
  • mixed patterns
  • monograms
  • ornate chandeliers
  • collections (silver, china and crystal)
  • pleated lampshades 
  • rattan, bamboo & wicker
  • toile, chintz & plaid
  • ruffles, pleats & fringe
  • lace
  • embroidered linens
  • slipcovers
  • chinoiserie
  • brown wood furniture, like walnut, cherry & mahogany
  • vintage brass
  • boxwood topiaries


What’s Cooking…

This past week was a little hectic so I cooked up an easy delicious pasta salad…there’s nothing better than Cherry tomatoes… Cucumbers…Tuna…and of course yummy pasta! Enjoy!

Pasta Salad With Tuna


8 cups shell pasta

2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved

one large cucumber, half, seeded and sliced

one and a half cups canned tuna, drained and roughly flaked

4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1 tablespoon white balsamic vinegar Lemon juice

kosher salt
freshly ground black pepper


In a large sauce pan assaulted, boiling water, cooked pasta until Al Dente, about 8 to 10 minutes.

Drain through a colander and rinse under running cold running water for two minutes, tossing some time to time. Let pasta drain for five minutes. Pat dry with paper towels.

And a large serving bowl, toss pasta with tomatoes, cucumber and tuna.

In a small bowl, briefly whisk together olive oil with white balsamic vinegar and some salt and pepper to taste.

Pour over the pasta salad and toss well to coat before serving.
