Commercial architectureFor the last few years, people have been favouring minimalism with designs. However, recently more and more clients have been looking at the next big thing. This happens to be maximalism. The style is a reaction to its minimalist brother.

A maximal design has the elements that are basically the opposite of what you would find with minimalism. Quiet colour pallets, minimal decor, and a lack of patterns don’t go well with it. The decor here is busier, brighter, and bigger. Think about eclectic furniture and precious photographs. They will be in an array of styles, textures, and colours. Instead of simply one or two of these elements, maximalism employs all of them.

What it was and what it is now

Maximalism was initially a category of literature, visual art, and music. Today, it is now part of our interior design. One normal misinterpretation is that it inspires people to overstuff their rooms and hoard. It does welcome the idea of excess, however it does not do so in the ways you think. It promotes unique possessions, bold pallets, repetition, and more. It is a loud style that includes saturated colours, curated collections, and mixed patterns.

With a maximal design you are encouraged to use your room as boldly as possible. The ornate nature calls back to the UK’s stately home interiors. But, the contemporary accents and bold colours enhance and modernise the maximalist style.
