Maximalism

We have all heard of Minimalism, but have you heard of Maximalism?  This ongoing trend is all about more is more and is everything opposite to Minimalism.  Maximalism is all for decorating your space to the max with over the top pieces, colour and pure opulence.  You can never overdo Maximalism as the more prints, pattern and colour the better!  Maximalism is about surrounding yourself with what makes you feel good and what makes you feel a bit more glamorous than you really may be.  Maximalism is very individual as the style is made up of your personality - you can be as bold and brave as you like and as out there without having to confine to any restrictions.  If you like to have fun with eclectic pieces and show your true colours, then Maximalism is your style and all for you!  Check out these bare-all Maximalism ideas.....

Tip: When decorating Maximalistic, choose materials and eclectic decor that screams opulence.  Think colour velvets, silks, furs, feathers and gold.  Maximalism is all about making a statement, so go bold and loud with paint colours and wallpapers as this style is about different textures and patterns and lots of it!  If you don't want to be too colourful, then paint your walls dark neutral tones like charcoal, black, navy and add the pop of colour with your accessories or go soft with pastel candy colours and pale jewel tones.
