7 Anti-Minimalist Homes That Embrace Clutter

Minimalist purists might want to look away now, for these homes are anything but that. Conventional decorating rules don’t apply here, as design styles, colours, and textures are mixed and matched with a huge dose of fun. Audaciously tongue-in-cheek, clutter is showcased as an organized mess instead of just visual noise.

1. Multiple black cable tracks snaking across the ceiling and down the stark white walls outline, frame and unite the different spaces. This design feature is then echoed with industrial shelves with similar black piping. Colourful and retro-inspired furniture and accessories are then thrown in for a curious twist!

5. Industrial influences are seen in the furniture, lighting design, as well as wire mesh sliders that zone the kitchen from the living area. These heavier aesthetics are contrasted with modern graphic tiles and quaint country accents, creating a juxtaposition that works for this jumbled look and feel.

6. Take note of how these homeowners transformed their blank walls to anchor the living room! Cladding it in brick veneer lends a warm, loft-like feel to the space, and decorating it with a medley of vivid posters, typography, and even a road sign turned it into a lively feast for the eyes.

7. Part artsy, part nostalgic, and a whole lot of fun, this home is the perfect inspiration for "kidults" looking to straddle their love for modern furnishings, toy collection, and retro collectables tastefully under one roof. The bedroom is also aptly less decorated to encourage a more restful sensibility.
