The Home Of Interiors Maximalist Trend
Maximalism is a bold, playful and flamboyant trend, encouraging self- expression in the home. Celebrating the unconventional, this nostalgic design style embraces colour, pattern and texture for a statement interior filled with personality and character. Bring the trend to life with patterned wallpapers and soft furnishings for a decorative, layered look. Striking florals, geometrics and animal prints work particularly well to enliven the space. Sumptuous printed velvets are also popular in this trend for textural depth and interest. Vibrant earthy and rich jewel toned colour schemes lend themselves beautifully to this trend, as do hard surfaces such as marble and wood to help balance the room.
How to work the trend!
- Begin your scheme by decorating all your walls in a bold patterned wallpaper. For ultimate maximalism, you could even paper your ceilings to create an all round immersive effect. The Sanderson One Sixty, Wedgwood Botanical Wonders and Harlequin Colour Collections provide some beautifully bold designs that fit seamlessly with this trend.
- Whether you prefer to paper your walls with an eye-catching print or keep the walls plain and painted, consider choosing a vibrant patterned fabric for your curtains, roman blinds, cushions and/or upholstery. Opting for contrasting designs with the same colour accents across your soft furnishings can create a cohesive, maximalist feel. Rich printed velvets with dramatic florals such as the Sanderson One Sixty Very Rose & Peony velvet and the Harlequin Colour 2 Helianthus velvet are a great choice. For alternative designs, we also love the Wedgwood Botanical Wonders Emerald Forest and Harlequin Melora, Equidae and Serpenti velvets.
- Complete your window treatment with a complementary curtain pole. The Jones Estate Handcrafted range is a beautiful choice, offering a wide selection of wood finishes from neutral to more vibrant colours. The Jones bespoke painted range also works well if you want to colour match your pole to a specific element of your room.
- Hard surfaces such as marble or wood effect cabinets, coffee tables or bedside tables complete the look nicely, creating a plain contrast to the patterned elements for a balanced feel.
