We firmly believe that age is just a number, but there’s no denying there are some pretty stark differences across all the generations.

It doesn’t matter how old you are. Most age groups differ in tech savviness (chances are, Grandma doesn’t Instagram), lingo, pop culture references, and, yes, interior design taste.

Take millennials and baby boomers, for example. Unless you hit the genetic jackpot, there’s a good chance you and your mother (or stepmom, or aunt…) don’t always see eye-to-eye on every design trend.

We’re not the only ones who can sense the design differences between millennials and baby boomers. Truth is, there are plenty of studies and data that share trends both age groups like — and some that are in contention.

Curious to see if your design aesthetic is more millennial or baby boomer? We're breaking down each generation's take on a handful of trends.
