Chintz, Chinoiserie, even needlepoint…a newly coined style has emerged, and it’s not (quite) your grandma’s décor. Classic “granny chic” design elements have been lovingly juxtaposed with sleek-lined furniture and modern art, expressing Millennials’ increasing need to disconnect and embrace the lived-in comforts of tradition. So put down your Kindle and start that book collection—Sister Parish is here to stay, and ready for her close-up (on IG anyway).

As we ring in 2020 with “Auld Lang Syne,” the old indeed won’t be forgot(ten) in interior design, as this latest trend infuses a dose of personality by layering in old and new design elements. Avoiding the “one and done” approach of big-box retail, decorators are opting to layer in beloved keepsakes from their clients’ travels as well as unique items that tell a more enriched story of the people who live there.
