Have you ever heard of maximalism? This decorating style might not be as popular as minimalism these days, but it is still a great decorating style for you who love colors and patterns. Maximalism in design embraces varied aesthetics and extravagance by breaking some traditional design elements. It can be a little overwhelming, but by following the points below, you can arrange your own maximalist living room that meets all your wants!
In maximalist design, courageous color choices and combination are very much welcomed. You can incorporate it by painting your wall with bright and vibrant color or put a colorful rug in your living room.
To add texture to your living room, you can try to layer colors and patterns together. You can also play with the fabrics and material of your things—like combining fur and leather—to get interesting texture.
If you love patterns, you can use them heavily in this kind of living room design. Try filling in your space with patterns that are bold, visually loud, and electric.
Maximalism is about colors and patterns and textures. If you don’t combine them all carefully, you can make a total chaos. To create harmony and avoid this chaos, you can repeat the use of colors or patterns. You can also stick with the same theme.
DIFFERENT TYPES OF FURNITURE
Maximalism encourages mixing and matching any shapes and any colors. If you want to incorporate maximalism into your design, do not stick to just one furniture style in one room. Try to explore and combine furniture from different styles and era.
Fill the space on your wall by creating a gallery wall that would cover your entire wall the top to the bottom. You can always try to combine different style of arts and different kinds of frames.
You can make the most of your ceiling space by covering them with wallpaper. This way of decorating your fifth wall is a great way to embrace maximalism.
DECORATE WITH BOOKS
Other styles than maximalism usually limit the number of books you can put on display. Maximalism, however, will never limit you. You can display your collections of book as many as you want.
If you want to try maximalism, I suggest you to use wallpaper with brave and bold design as a key piece or accent wall in your living room.
Maximalism is a great style for you who love happy colors and patterns. If you are one of them, you can create your own happy and cheerful maximalist room by incorporating floral pattern and bright, warm color palette into your space.
Maximalism encourages you to explore and experiment with your artistic side more than you ever did before. Are you ready now to assemble your own maximalist living room?
