And how do we present our home to appeal?
As time passes by, we realise that soon the moment will come when we will have to step back and leave the podium to the newer generations. The generation Y or the so-called millennials are slowly reshaping and reinventing the modern world as we know it and bringing new, fresh and different ideas into every aspect of our lives. So it is time to sit back, relax and see what the Millennials have to offer in the sphere of home décor.
Who Are They?
Many people have a difficult time understanding who are the people classified as the generation Y. Many researchers define this generation as the group who reached early adulthood somewhere around the year 2000. The term Millennials was coined by two authors named William Strauss and Neil Howe, once the children born in 1982 were entering preschool. And while the term is widely spread around the globe, most people still do not realize that these millennials are people we have raised – the people following the generation X. What is special about the millennials is that they are the first generation growing up completely absorbed in the virtual word. Dependable of technology and surrounded by the electronic influence, making them the first online generation.
Sometimes described as narcissistic or even self-absorbed the millennial generation differs quite a bit from its former cohort. But of course, it is more complex than that. Lifestyles are not meant to be understood, but experienced, and like that, millennials are doing their best in experiencing their high-tech, fast-paced life, while trying to put the focus on their needs and desires. They are the generation who wants everything, at this very moment, and they are not afraid to get it. Growing up surrounded by technology has given them need to seek comfort, serenity, and security, but also to try and live their lives in the present moment.
Millennial Home Décor.
The millennials are all about the comfort and convenience, so their living space needs to be designed in the same manner. The home design of the Generation Y should exude with originality, uniqueness, but also with style and organisation. The goal is to create a household that will serve its purpose, be quite practical in every way, but also give that special touch of modern.
