Bold and bright colours, vivid patterns and ample accessories – more is more when it comes to maximalism. In the world of interiors, this trend is all about having fun and playing with those elements that make a space feel like home. Here are our top tips for embracing this trend.
First off - what is maximalist home décor?
This trend is all about embracing excess: go bold and embrace lots of colour, play with pattern and layer those textures.
What colour should you use for maximalism?
There’s no such thing as too much when it comes to the maximalist trend, and so accenting your interior with bright and bold colours helps to create that indulgent look.
Darker colours like blue or navy blue are quite often used as a base palette for this kind of interior aesthetic. Blue is an accessible colour that works beautifully with metallic accents, geometric prints and marble for a maximalist look.
What kind of textures and colours can be paired with bold tones?
Danetti stylist, Emily says: “Pink is a popular tone now, and this pairs nicely with blue and green. If you don’t want it to feel as strong, you can bring in the softer pink and blushes. This kind of palette works well in bedrooms. You could be brave and go for a bed in one of these shades or go for a blanket box or ottoman bench in your chosen colour.
In a sitting room or living space, you can play with bolder colours in the form of accent and occasional chairs, mixing and contrasting the tones. If you don’t want it to feel as vibrant, rust blends well with neutrals and cream tones, or you can use soft greys with those strong colours. It’s all about having fun with your palette and looking at what works for you and your home.”
