Must-Reads: Grandmillennials & A Charlotte Home Worth Seeing

Every Monday, we corral five links from around the web worthy of sharing. On tap for today: the new bible on incorporating color into your home and life , defining the cohort of youth breathing new life into old-school classics like chintz and needlepoint, a Carolina home that balances drama and serenity, a trip down travel memory lane and two Texas designers share the art inspires them daily. {hero image via aspiremetro}

ON COLOR. 

Fans of her debut book, Living with Pattern, will love Rebecca Atwood's newest release, Living with Color. Take it from a textile designer. In our experience with creating custom rugs for clients, we know that even the biggest fans of color can find it challenging to pinpoint the perfect combination. Order your copy here{image via doré}

WHAT'S OLD IS NEW.

We call these pieces "must-reads," and we really mean it with this one. House Beautiful breaks down who a "grandmillennial" is here -- the topic is sensational, the work itself is excellently written AND the article includes a quiz at the end so you can discover if you can call yourself this newly (and oh-so cleverly) coined term. {image via House Beautiful

COMING UP ROSES.

Speaking of! We love this Charlotte home's use of grandmillennial elements like chintz and chinoiserie as a means of honoring her mother's style. Still, cleaner lines and more modern twists help it avoid feeling overly formal and stuffy. The end result is a beautiful abode in North Carolina that you can take a virtual tour of here. {image via aspiremetro}

ALL ABOARD.

Our last United flight looked nothing like this. Take a look at travel when flying the friendly skies was glam and the passengers were all grins. {image via Reader's Digest}

ART, ALWAYS.

A Dallas and Houston designer divulge the local art that never ceases to inspire them. For friend Meg Lonergan, it's the Menil and for Ruthie Staalsen down the highway, it's anything that encourages us to enjoy the basics again -- nature, play, water.{image via The Menil}
