Maximalism also persuades us to parade and flaunt our items, rather than tidying them away and Siobhan agrees affirming “If I can’t see something, then to me it doesn’t exist – it is forgotten and unused. The pandemic also contributed in a more practical way to the rise of vintage, says Kristina Urquhart, editor and publisher of The Vintage Seeker, a Canadian magazine for vintage and antique sellers and thrifters. The pattern, plus the wood planks at the center amplify the room's cool architectural details and continue to draw the eye up. And here, it’s important not to be daunted by colour – this is the ideal opportunity to throw out the rule book and splash some joyful shades!

Recently, she transformed her collection into a custom-built wall of trunks, many of them holding the other treasures and knick-knacks she collects, such as buttons, yarn and old photographs. We often see coffee tables with books stacked atop them just so, but it's ok to be a little more casual with your arrangement. The best way is to ask yourself how you want to feel in the room, and then identify which colour or colours create those emotions for you. After years of all-white kitchens and neutral farmhouse-inspired living rooms, there's a new trendy style flooding our feeds and this one makes an argument for adding more to your home. Sticking with the same medium tone for the sofa, pillows, walls, and bookshelves keeps the room restful, as do a few neutrals.The technical storage or access is strictly necessary for the legitimate purpose of enabling the use of a specific service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user, or for the sole purpose of carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network. Consider how much of a statement you want to make with a strong color, pattern or contrasting texture. Here, chocolaty brown walls anchor a maximalist bedroom bursting with orange, yellow, blue, and green. Maximalism is all about celebrating pattern play, so don't be shy about mixing and matching different fabrics and prints. Furniture, ceramics, glass and metalwork originals are highly collectible at the online marketplace 1stdibs and featured in shows like The Collective in New York.

Says Matari: "Each room should include the unexpected and tell the story of our lives, our travels and childhood, or any moment that defines who we are and how we live. A shift away from stark, minimalist styles, maximalism celebrates different styles and designs (whether old or new) all styled together in a considered way that showcases all that you love and have collected over the years. Monochromatic rooms are difficult to mess up, so this is a great decor style if you want to experiment with maximalism but you don’t trust your design instincts (yet). In this living room, flea-market paintings and prints cluster above the sofa and influence the design of the rest of the room. Crisp, creamy woodwork and a pale gray ceiling maintain a clean and bright look, preventing the energetic colors on the bed and curtains from competing.Drawing color inspiration from a large painting, this maximalist living room combines lavender walls with splashes of yellow, orange, and pink. Taken together, these factors are creating a type of 'perfect storm' that is driving interest in second-hand goods," said Katherine White, a professor in marketing and behavioural science at the University of British Columbia.

However, Matthew Williamson suggests that we don't need to fill our interiors with modern furnishings – but should combine new features with timeless pieces to create a unique maximalist setting. Whether it's an antique chair or a brand new blanket, if you love it, you can make it work in your space. Adding textured elements like rugs, ottomans or window treatments and wooden pieces will help to soften the space and absorb sound which is always good when designing a living room,' explains Luis Carmona. Few colors grab attention more readily than orange, especially backed by a clean canvas of white walls and airy curtains.Maximalism is all about embracing 'extra' be it a floral velvet, bullion fringe, or an 19th-century French commode," designer Sarah Stacey notes. Consider the layout of living room furniture, the arrangement of decor items, and the flow of colors to create a cohesive and inviting environment. An already expansive and colorful shoe collection is flanked by velvet furnishings, chic wall art, a bold rug, and much more. This bookshelf wealth–style living room, with art and accessories sprinkled in throughout the books, is a stunning example of maximalist decorating.

It’s a design style rooted in a more-is-more philosophy that will often blend an eclectic mix of patterns, colors, textures, and objects. Netflix's Interior Design Masters finalist Siobhan Murphy brings you a fearless home interiors handbook that celebrates maximalism and shows you how your taste in fashion can influence your home decor. Painting or papering a ceiling draws attention upwards and has the ability to make a space look much taller.Whether you’re a dedicated bibliophile or not, a bespoke home library is the perfect place to add colour to your scheme, as well as offer space for the best accent – a curated selection of your cherished items.
