Have you heard of Elegant Connoisseur before? If you are familiar with Modsy, you’ll know that it is the second most popular interior design style ranking one level below Mod Visionary Aesthetic.
Alessandra Wood, VP of Style at Modsy, defines it as “someone who loves vintage and loves a pop of glam. Their space is completely polished and perfectly considered with a tendency toward the unexpected. You’ll see a mix of classic antiques like a French barrel chair with modern icons such as a Barcelona chair.”
The short definition can be, “Elegant Connoisseur combines classic formal and Hollywood glam with a touch of eclectic.”
Still hard to understand, right? Then,

Just check how this style comes.
If you are a millennial, I am sure the classic interior design will be your type. But unlike your grandpa or grandma, the classic millennial style is more of a modern look; let’s claim it as a mid-century modern style.
Because of the elegant and luxurious sense emitted by classic style, instead of being discarded, this style goes on. Especially when decorating the living room under this style, the millennial puts more personality and mixes it with minimalist design, industrial decor, or contemporary furniture, giving an eclectic look. And that is precisely the core of Elegant Connoisseur.
This style continues the elegant sense that elderly persons love but emphasizes more on simplicity and cleanness that youngsters are obsessed with. This inheritance and development set its base to stand on the stage for years.
You can adopt this style both in your living room or in your bedroom, but we strongly suggest you to put it on your living room, for it gives you more space to show the luxury sense, and is more compatible with any styles you want to add in other rooms.
