Over Minimalism? These 8 Homes Nail Maximal Interiors

Curate your own joy-sparking space with inspiration from these thoughtfully designed spaces.

In recent years the trend of adding more colour, patterns, and textures to your space has become increasingly common. However, the interior style of maximalism has been a part of the design world for centuries, but the way in which it has manifested in our homes has changed over time.

Maximalism is an often misunderstood design style, whereby many assume maximalism implies having lots of “stuff”, the founders of Hackney House Frieda Gormley and Jaavy M. Royle wish to eradicate this misconception, being leaders in the maximalist field themselves. “Maximalism is about lots of colour. Painterly prints. Rich textures. Surrounding yourself with objets d’art, mementos, and curios that you love” Gormley and Royle explain, abiding by the aesthetic adage of William Morris: “Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.”

While this bold interior design style can be difficult to execute, we’ve been lucky enough to step into some maximalist masterpieces through our series The Makers, here you’ll find eight homes that execute this design trend beautifully.
