Maximalism, Straight Off The Runway And Into Your Home
April 20, 2017
Off the runway and right into our homes, maximalism is taking over - and we're digging it! Loud prints, pattern on pattern and lots of texture, let's just say there's no such thing as too much (when done tastefully, of course!). Also, when it comes to decor, apply the same logic... more is more!
Here are 7 eye-boggling homes that embrace the maximalist philosophy.
1. On top of going full out wood for that quaint Scandi-country appeal, every corner of this warm, homey space has been adorned with some form of decor. These homeowners manage to keep their home looking "full" without appearing cluttered; a successful balancing act!

3. A kaleidoscope of colours, this bright, zesty space is sure to inspire creativity and jog your imagination. From tiny teal, diamond tiles that creep along the wall as a backdrop for the TV, to the pastel motif running across the built-in carpentry, each feature bursts with invigorating cheer.
