As far back as I can remember, the home’s décor has been refined, personalized and uniformed. Most of the living spaces I’ve seen for years are simply… Beige color – Until very recently! Minimalism has had its moment in our living rooms, and I’m so happy to see that we’re turning to minimalism instead. I totally welcome this time to embrace the whimsical when it comes to home decor.
So, if you haven’t heard, let me be the first to tell you that minimalism is out and maximalism is in! I spend a lot of my time browsing the r/maximalism subreddit, where people celebrate their creativity with dazzling displays of swirling colors and different patterns. What makes it even better is that even though it may be so look Expensive, and more affordable than splurging on overpriced home decor at department stores because you can get most of the pieces from thrift stores (we love sustainability) or by reusing things you already own and lying around the house.
Below are 16 photos that fully illustrate all the pillars of maximum decor:
I’ve seen enough themed living rooms where everything has to fit. I’m over it! There are no rules with maximum decor. You It’s the topic!
The “gallery wall” is a major part of extremism. If you want your pieces to look more cohesive, this can easily be achieved by using the same frame for each:
Or you can choose frames that are a little similar, but a little different:
Even if the frames don’t match at all, they can still work and look amazing! The goal of extremes is to take up space and indulge in your favorite things:
Like I said, there are no rules. You don’t need to use any frames at all if you don’t want to! You can also overlap artwork on your gallery wall and create a more gallery, less wall moment:
Beyond just hanging pictures, I love seeing random things being used as decor. It turns your home into a crafty little game of “Where’s Waldo?” Why should not be Did you put a purple meteorite on the wall?
If having a coffee cup clock and a picture of a lobster on the same wall is wrong, I don’t want to be right:
There are no creative limitations when it comes to extremes, so you don’t have to stop at the wall. You can hang things – such as furnishings – on the ceiling if you want:
You can get creative with things you already own, like books:
Another way to maximize is to sprinkle bright colors and patterns everywhere:
Such a kitchen that makes me feel like I’m wandering down Rainbow Road Mario Kart:
Or this living room that pushes boundaries with its bright blue walls juxtaposed with a black and white striped wall:
The max doesn’t have to be a bright explosion of color either:
Even girls ~ dark and stormy aesthetics ~ can get in on the action:
This room brings all the elements together: a gallery wall with different pieces that somehow flow together while mixing colors and patterns:
No matter your personal aesthetic, there’s a way you can make the most of your home and create a one-of-a-kind living space that’s completely independent of you and yours alone. Let me know in the comments which one of these rooms was your favorite!
