Beige and neutral tones set by lifeless millennials via their Instagram feeds are now being pushed out thanks to Gen Z, who are desperately seeking some holiday old-school cheer!
A TikTok user named Avery has decided she will not be staging her home like a “Crate and Barrel showroom,” and instead has her eye on “nostalgic” Christmas: obnoxious multicolour lights, eclectic, mismatched ornaments and tinsel so shiny it could almost be considered tacky.
“I have decided that I will not be participating in minimalist, beige Christmas this year,” the Washington state resident declared in a TikTok video, which earned 1.2 million views.

“The theme this year is nostalgic, early 2000s Christmas,” Avery continued, alongside a photo of a teetering tree loaded with ornaments of varying colours and sizes, haphazard tinsel and drenched in the blinding, reddish-orange glow of the technicolour bulbs.
Avery may be onto something. At a time when everyone seems down and stressed, let’s bring back the tacky 80’s tinsel Christmas!
