About this deal

Moving into an unfurnished flat was a little daunting, but Karen’s personal end to end service was truly a godsend. Towards the end of the book Siobhan gives us prompts on how we can start our maximalist journey when decorating our home, by mood boarding and sourcing inspiration. A state of excess has taken hold in the interior design world," says Bethanne Matari, a spokesman for lighting and furnishings manufacturer Currey and Company. Design your setup so that it features hues that you love—this space is filled with gold accents galore!

Few colors grab attention more readily than orange, especially backed by a clean canvas of white walls and airy curtains.

Maximalism is not about clutter or hoarding, but about curated collections and displaying the things that make us happy. If your wall space allows, incorporating floor to ceiling bookcases in your living room and filling them to the brim is an excellent way to showcase a passion for reading while also adding plenty of color into your home. In this space, white walls and sofas provide a clean, go-with-anything foundation, while wood tones and browns layer on the warmth. With this much going on, she kept the rest simple, opting for a solid-colored crib, side table, and sheets.

Introduce a variety of textures through plush rugs, velvet upholstery, satin pillows, and fringed throws. For furniture, combine different textures for materials and accents, like above, where the lustrous finish of our Toro Bronze cabinetry contrasts beautifully with the smooth, deep Avocado doors and metallic handles. The wall isn't just for storage; she hides surprises in some of the cases for her grandchildren, and a local musician used it as a background for a music video. She also lists the retro, flamboyant style of Palm Springs, with iconic architecture, pastel colours, and vivid beach vibes in the middle of the desert. Over-the-top decorating can require a little more editing and curating than it seems at first glance.White, of the University of British Columbia, says there's definitely an uptick in consumer interest in vintage items. If you believe that more is in fact more, maximalist interior design might just be the decor style for you. Alternating between horizontal and vertical stacks will make your display more eye-catching, which is always the goal in a maximalist room. Whether you opt for brightly colored pieces or stick to a more neutral scheme as seen here, you'll be able to create quite the display.
