1. "50,000 shades of gray throughout a space."
"So. Much. Gray. And I say this as a millennial who has SOME gray, but way too many people take it too far. Gray walls, gray floors, gray couches, etc. And if not gray, it’s white… Just tons of gray and white interiors. Please let’s bring some color back again!"
"Gray everything (walls, floors, furniture), especially with yellow accents, marble, and rose gold."
6. "The 'Apple' aesthetic."
"Being excessively slimmed down and minimalist while still looking modern and 'techy.''
8. "Gemstones and crystals."
"Himalayan salt lamps, geodes, random selenite statues."
9. "Not having carpeted floors."
"As an interior designer, I see certain trends stick around for quite some time, and others come and go. Usually it’s furniture that the style changes more frequently since it’s easier to replace. The only thing I can say is a for-sure trend younger people consistently and specifically like most is having the same wood/LVP floor throughout the whole house. Younger people seem to really hate carpet."
13. "Chalkboard painted walls."
"The realtors did this in our kitchen to stage our home when my parents sold it in 2014. Looked ugly and seemed so pointless and messy."
16. "Dark-stained planks with bright, white-painted phrases."
"Like 'More wine' and a silhouette of a wine glass."
19. "Anything from the 1990s prominently displayed."
"Like an N64 or Game Boy Color."
20. And finally, "what we can afford."
"Millennials will be known for buying what's out there, and what we can afford, which even as we approach middle age is largely cheap assemble-at-home furniture to fill the cheap open-concept house some boomer knocked the walls out of 20 years ago. It's what's there."
