What Is Maximalism?

Maximalism is a reaction to minimalism and is pretty much the opposite of what we have visions of when we think about minimalism.

Maximalism is an abundance of colour, of ornaments and a way of styling our homes to show off our belongings all at once.

Maximalism is about embracing colour and texture, clashing patterns, colours and textures to create a visually interesting home.

Maximalism is about focusing on the big items and the small, adding detail that is rich in tone, never boring.

Maximalism is a host of cushions placed on the sofa along with throws to create a cozy sitting area.

Maximalism is about creating warmth with lamps and candles placed strategically around the room.

Maximalism is embracing the unique, quirky, and unexpected and adding them in unexpected places.

Maximalism is upcycling furniture and other objects to create something fun.

Maximalism is stand out, strong, independent and fun.

Maximalism is everything that I love.

I am a maximalist.
