From minimalism to maximalism

In the most recent years, minimalism has proven to trump the trends in interior design. 2023 is changing that dramatically (literally). Maximalism in interior design is a bold and opulent approach to decorating that incorporates a wide range of textures, patterns and colors into a space. Unlike minimalism, which focuses on clean lines and a limited color palette, maximalism embraces an abundance of visual elements to create a space that is both dynamic and layered.


Texture, vibrance, and patterns, oh my!

A key element of incorporating maximalism in any design is the use of a wide variety of patterns and textures. This can include everything from intricate geometric patterns to bold floral prints, and from plush velvets to rough-hewn linens. The idea is to create a sense of depth and complexity in the space, rather than a flat and one-dimensional look. A great way to include maximalism in your next design is through statement stone. Statement stone strays away from the plain and muted tones that we are used to seeing in minimalism and rather fixates on incorporating styles of stone that include bold, high contrast pieces. Another important aspect of maximalism is the use of rich and vibrant colors. This can include bold primary hues, as well as soft pastels and jewel tones. In addition to patterns and colors, maximalism also often includes a wide range of textures and materials. This can include everything from luxurious silks and velvets to rough-hewn woods and metals. The idea is to create a sense of contrast and interest, rather than a monotony of one material.


Self-expression

Maximalism in interior design can be seen as a form of self-expression; it can also be a reflection of one’s personal style, interests and passions. It is an approach that is not for everyone, but for those who embrace it, it can be a highly rewarding and satisfying way to create a home that is both beautiful and meaningful.
