1. Add Gorgeous Wallpaper Art
If it’s time for a full room refresh we highly recommend adding a bold pop of colour to your wall! Although many maximalists opt for a darker hue to coat their walls, the trend for 2023 is to create a unique and bold interior with perfectly patterned walls! Try adding two striking contrasting colours or opt for a geometric design to create an instant impact.
2. Don’t Be Scared Of Colour
The main building blocks to a maximalist interior is colour, and lots of it! The key is to build on your colour scheme and start with a very subtle and basic colour palette. You’ll often see many maximalist homes with dark hues of green and blue on their walls, and bright and bold patterns and textures throughout the rest of the room to create a perfect balance. The secret to creating a perfectly balanced interior is to make sure you strive for personalization and not perfection!
3. Introduce An Array Of Patterns
It can be pretty daunting adding an array of different patterns into an entire room but it really doesn't have to be! Start off with one corner of the room and work your way out, this will help to prevent you getting overwhelmed and you can also swap bits out if need be. A great place to start is the dullest corner of your room. Have an old plain chair? Start by adding a floral throw or mismatching pillows to spruce up the space!
4. Opt For Creative Rather Than Cluttered
It can be very easy to get carried away with interior design, especially when it comes to creating a maximalist interior. The key is to aim for a light and comfortable room rather than a cluttered and dense space. The main areas that people often slip up on are in fact flat surfaces. Just because you have space on your coffee table doesn't necessarily mean you have to add another accessory. Try moving a few of your decorations around to create a new and uplifting space that isn't claustrophobic!
