By now, we’ve all had just about enough of the limitations that come with the heavily trending design style minimalism over the past decade. Call it a refusal to the challenging plainness it brings to a home or an acceptance of the more exuberant furnishings and accessories that have been popular of late, as it was only a matter of time before we saw a major shift in the complete opposite direction. And with more and more clients continuing to follow suit, it makes all the more sense when looking to create a rich and unique space.
When looking to bring in transitional and eclectic design styles into your home, a maximal spirit will afford you so much more freedom when considering interesting decorative objects that anything but standard and streamlined in appeal. With maximalism, you’ll have much more freedom to follow your instinct which in turn, will make the design process so much easier. The key to getting warm maximalism right is to keep a well-judged edit and visual consistency so your efforts don’t appear as heavy-handed or over stimulating. Instead, stick to no more than three contrasting colors, patterns, and finishes for a more timeless take on maximalism that won’t feel dated or tiring anytime soon.
