Design Trend: Maximalism

Many design trends come up as a reaction to a design trend that starts to feel a bit overplayed. While minimalism has been a breath of fresh air in this era of materialism and excess, you’re going to start seeing a reaction to too much minimalism. Enter….Maximalism in home design.

Before you judge this look and say its too fussy or indulgent for your home…give us a chance to show you some beautiful examples of how this look can shine.

Maximalism doesn’t just have to be about a bunch of stuff. It can be reflected in wall treatments, wallpaper…even wall hangings.

The opposite of minimalism, which gives your eye blank space to look at, maximalism gives your eyes so many things to absorb. A good maximally designed room keeps your eye bouncing from one thing to another – so many pretty things it’s hard to see them all.

These rooms are exciting, warm and really full of personality. This design trend is a great way to express yourself – and break the mold of all our rooms looking the same and perfectly curated and designed. It’s a challenging look to pull off well – so be sure to get designer help to keep your room from veering into overstuffed.
