The best part about maximalism? Anything goes – it’s as simple as that. We’re sharing some of our favorite spaces from maximalists like you that prove dialed-up style should always be brighter, bolder, and busier.
Mix it All
Throw the rule book out the window! Embracing an over-the-top look that mixes textures, genres and prints doesn’t have to be tricky. A statement hue like Moody Blue grounds the space by washing walls in a solid color that leaves you with more room to play with pattern.
Keep it Colorful
Feeling inspired by a bold painting or patterned chair? Statement pieces are the perfect starting point to build your maximalist escape. Taking color cues from artwork or accessories lets you create a cohesive palette that always ties back to your focal point. We love the way Mount Etna was used on the walls to make the pink and teal accents in this room stand out.
Tell Your Story
Give decor with a story a place to shine. A colorful gallery wall is the perfect space where old meets new, so you can easily work in modern and vintage additions alike. Granite Peak offers a neutral backdrop for other unexpected elements like printed floral curtains and geometric rugs to be woven in.
Brighter is Better
Set the stage for a burst of color and texture with white walls. Hues of equal intensity create balance in a space that puts color first. For a floor-to-ceiling maximalist look, think beyond the wall! Make the most of your ceiling space by contrasting Extra White walls with a burst of energy from a hue like Espalier.
The Modern Maximalist
Black may be the absence of color, but it sets the perfect foundation for a maxed-out modern space. Offset the drama of Tricorn Black with bright, luxurious furnishings for a look that is balanced and bold. Keep accessories and other furnishings light and bright to keep the energy in the space lifted.
