Vintage Vibes: Grandmillenial-Style Window Treatments

A trend we’ve been seeing a lot of lately on Instagram is grandmillenial style. This vintage-inspired, nostalgia-embracing take on interior design features everything from chintz and wicker to plaids and needlepoint. A modern interpretation of a traditional aesthetic, grandmillenial style can also be applied to your custom window treatments. In this post, we take a look at a few examples of how The Shade Store helped interior designer Ariel Okin transform the windows of her Upper East Side Apartment into grandmillenial statement-makers.


For her living room windows, Ariel Okin chose Flat Roman Shades — Highland, Driftwood. With its earthy hue, this classic neutral window treatment material complements its comfortable surroundings while framing the view with a grandmillenial-style windowpane check.

Cool blues meet perennial patterns in Ariel Okin’s bedroom. The windows are adorned with Flat Roman Shades — Bamboo Lattice, Blue — to add a touch of throwback personality to the space.

In the guest room, Ariel Okin decided on a layered approach to her custom window treatments. Pinch Pleat Drapery — Luxe Linen, Oyster — and Waterfall Woven Wood Shades — Montauk, Beachgrass add luxurious depth and texture to this eclectic, grandmillenial-inspired corner of the apartment.
