Maximalism Design | Maximalist Style for Your Home

Move over Boho, we have a new kid on the block! Meet Maximalist design, the cooler more edgier version of no rules Boho. Maximalism design follows the age-old motto of “more is more and more is always better”! We love the playfulness and freedom Maximalist design has. Maximalist interior design incorporates a plethora of shapes, colors and textures that create a bold and unique design. It’s a bit of Mid-century with it’s bold silhouettes and a whole lot of Boho with the playful textures and design. 

Maximalist Floors 

There is no “wrong” or “right” way to do Maximalist design. While we usually advise our customers to go for more neutral flooring if they are going for any particular design style, Maximalist is the exception to the rule. Go bold & crazy with some fun tiles and play around with shapes with this design trend

A fun animal print carpet can be a wonderful base for a bold and graphic living room!

We are obsessing over these geometric floors that are giving us major retro vibes! Paired with some contrasting colors, these floors can be the perfect base for a beautiful maximalism design!

Stone look flooring has been huge this year and we love the unique natural look it gives! Add some stone look vinyl to your floor and pair it with some bright and bold colors for a more airy Maximalist-style feel!

Neutral flooring, we haven’t forgotten you! There are major benefits to choosing a more neutral floor like a hardwood, even in a Maximalist design! Neutral flooring means you can take your Maximalist home vision and constantly change up the look! The fun part about this design trend is that it’s a collection of bold prints, colors and shapes, there is no set cookie cutter look for this design. Neutral flooring enables you to enjoy this interior design style to its fullest potential by being able to change it up!

Maximalist Decor

Maximalist design is all about the unique harmonization of different patterns and colors. With that being said we think it’s fitting to pay extra attention to decor! Maximalist at its core is about picking pieces that speak to you! 

An easy way to accessorize your Maximalist home is to add an area rug to your home! This is one of the many ways you can personalize this look. It is important to remember there are no specific rules needed when selecting a rug, this is not a cut and paste design moment and we encourage you to go for the area rug you really enjoy looking at.

A more retro geometric area rug is always a safe choice when it comes to investing in area rugs! Not only can it work for Maximalist design but it is also interchangeable with other design styles!

The same thing can be said about persian style rugs!

Another great decor piece are window treatments! When choosing window treatments specifically for Maximalist design we suggest going for different textured drapes with a fun pattern!

Accent walls & wall tiles 

Have some fun with your walls! Maximalist style is the time to get creative! Add a cute accent wall to make a statement in your home! A dark and moody accent wall paired with some bright and graphic paintings and decor can pull an entire Minimalist room together. 

Lean into color as well! We love these mosaic tiles, paired with accent colors to give a collective yet bold look!
