Decorating with Cottage Core Wallpaper - The Hottest Trend in 2021

What is Cottage Core?

Grandmillennial, Cottage Core or Granny Chic are all terms to describe the hottest interior trend of 2021 to date. The rise of cottage core and granny chic pulls inspiration from the 1920s and 1930s, with bold prints, ruffles, embroidered linens and ‘not your granny’s florals’. Think garish paisley and vintage florals that are a touch outdated and stuffy; an eclectic mix where old meets new.

This twist on traditional Grandmillennial style is an antidote to the modern minimalist interiors of simple all-white spaces. It was named Grandmillennial due to the current generation rebelling against the previous one - furnishing their home with mid-century modern interiors and looking to the earlier generations for inspiration. Granny Chic provides a huge dose of texture with bold, clashing color patterns; showing off the 20-30 year olds desire to flaunt their personality and uniqueness within their home.
