Embracing a new wave in home decor, maximalism is gaining popularity after years of minimalist designs and neutral colour schemes. This style stands in stark contrast to the simplicity of its predecessors, encouraging more creativity and self-expression. Maximalist interiors celebrate the use of vibrant colours, diverse patterns, and intricate textures, allowing for a fun and joyful ambiance.

Despite its abundant approach, maximalism is a carefully curated and intentional design trend, avoiding clutter and chaos. An excellent way to dip your toes into maximalism is by creating a gallery wall adorned with vibrant artwork. 

For those hesitant about patterned wallpaper, experimenting with patterns through accessories provides an easily interchangeable alternative. Patterned curtains, throw pillows, blankets, and rugs can be swapped out effortlessly to refresh the space on a budget. For a more permanent change, a tiled backsplash or floor can add a dramatic touch to kitchen and bathroom areas. 

Colour trends play a crucial role in shaping our moods and connection to our living spaces. To discover your maximalist inclinations, take cues from your wardrobe, as fashion choices often reveal our penchant for self-expression. If your wardrobe brims with a riot of colours and patterns, chances are you are a maximalist at heart. 

With proper curation, maximalist decor ideas are easy to achieve in the home. For instance, pairing a jewel-tone velvet couch with a more neutral leather ottoman creates a captivating contrast. The possibilities for combining colours and fabrics are limitless, allowing you to customize your space with endless creativity.
