On trend: maximalism

You’ve heard of minimalism, but it’s time to ditch the ‘less is more’ vibe.

The latest trend sweeping the interior design world is maximalism, and you guessed it, it is bringing bright colours, bold patterns and quirky décor to our homes. It’s not for the faint-hearted, but if clashing colour lights up your soul, then read on.

Texture on texture
The key to achieving maximalism is by layering different colours, fabrics and textures. Create a quirky palette by throwing various cushions together. We love these three from Kas.
Visit for local stockists.

Eye-catching details
The iridescent Grande Feature print from Domayne will add an infusion of bright colour into your space. The tropical plumage will look terrific when paired with gold, pink and purple decor accents.

we love!

The Sorin deep-blue armchair is from Focus on Furniture, Maroochydore Homemaker Centre.

Perfect patterns
No maximalism-designed house is complete without wallpaper. Choose a pattern that you love and build the rest of your room around that. The Anna French Spotted Orchid is perfect for those who love a splash of yellow. Visit In Curtains+ Blinds Maroochydore for a wide range of wallpapers, including the Anna French brand.
