We’ll just come right out and say it: maximalist interior design is seriously underrated. Sure, we love minimalism as much as the next person, but there’s something enchanting about good maximalist interiors that’s often neglected when furnishing a luxury home.
So, what is maximalist interior design?
With maximalist interiors, more is more. This style is not about sparse, sedated rooms with a few statement pieces. It’s about putting as much of the owner’s personality into a single room as possible. Think favorite colors, favorite pieces, favorite accessories. It’s bolder, more comfortable, interesting and vibrant than ordinary design. And isn’t that the height of luxury?
There is, however, a very fine line between opulence and gaudiness. So how do you rock maximalism in a luxurious home design without turning it into an ugly mess? Don’t worry, we’ve got a few inspirations for you.
