MAKE WAY FOR MAXIMALISM
Not feeling minimalism? Make way for invigorating, carefree maximalism design. This trend embraces the eclectic, experiments with colour, and plays with patterns, taking everything to the max—just how we like it. When done with purpose, maximalist spaces are cohesive, comfortable, and full of personality. It’s about decorating your space with what you love in a way that works for you – resulting in an interior that feels lived in and loud.
Here’s how to embrace the “more is more” attitude in your home:
START WITH THE BASICS
To keep from overwhelming your space, start with a clean slate and build it up. Keep the non-decorative clutter to a minimum by choosing furniture pieces that offer storage for items you don’t want on display – remote controls, magazines, your old slippers – so that you can highlight items that add to the aesthetic of the room. Then, slowly start adding in different colours, patterns, and sentimental decor. Building up your space with a few pieces at a time keeps things looking curated and bold, but not messy or chaotic. Starting with a simple base also allows you to change it up whenever you want.
