Maximalism is a design philosophy where the aim is to create a space with a maximal number of retain characteristics. Now, we’re not advocating that you need to be filling your living rooms with 90 pound exotic cats, or even 10 (although if you did, please send us photos), but we are saying that maximalist approaches tend to make for striking design.
If you’re looking to revamp your living room in an eye-catching way, give some of these ideas a try. Here are 10 maximalist living rooms we can’t stop staring at!
01. The Monochromatic Maximalist
This room is a perfect example of how to create a monochromatic maximalist style room. It’s all about the textures, patterns and prints with this particular design. Monochromatic maximalism is all about having fun with color and making sure that it’s not too serious or overbearing. If you love color but have been afraid to use it, this is a great place to start!
02. The Chandelier Stunner
This room is all about a statement piece. This light fixture is the focal point of this room, but it’s not the only thing that stands out in this space. The wallpaper, bench and chairs are all equally bold and inviting. When paired together, these elements work perfectly in sync to create a maximalist space that you will love!
03. The Mirror Moment
Mirrors are a great way to make a small space look larger. They reflect light, create a sense of depth and often make rooms feel more spacious. But you don’t want just any mirror — it’s important to choose one that has character and reflects your style.
There’s no better way to go maximal than with an ornate mirror thats nearly floor to ceiling!
04. The Curated Clutter
This living room has an eclectic collection of art, books and furniture that all work together to create a cohesive look. It’s not just one piece but many different elements that actually make this room feel organized — even though it looks like there’s too much going on!
It’s important to note that this is not just about adding more things but about curating them well so they seamlessly fit into your home. This is done by making sure there are no clashes between colors or patterns so everything looks intentional.
05. The Bold and Beautiful
The main attraction of this living room is the big fireplace. The beautiful marble mantle adds a romantic touch to the room while the stunning rug complete it with their warm color. The white walls add lightness to the space and give it an inviting appeal.
There’s nothing quite like a bold rug choice. This patterned shag rug comes to life next to its counterparts, like this velvet chair and grand fireplace.
06. The Plant Paradise
Covering your space in plants can be a beautiful way to create more specific type of maximalism.
The natural element of plants brings a calming influence to any space. It is also an easy way to create a more cohesive look by choosing similar leaf colors and textures. There are so many different kinds of plants you can choose from, so don’t be afraid to try something new!
07. The Style Twist
When it comes to decorating your living room, there are so many options for you to choose from. From color palettes to furniture styles and shapes, the possibilities are endless. If you’re looking for a way to give your space a fresh look without breaking the bank, we’ve got just the thing for you: The style twist!
The style twist is a simple way to add visual interest and personality to a room without having to break the bank or do any major renovations. It’s like redecorating on a budget! All you need is some paint and some new accessories, and voila! You have yourself an entirely new look in no time at all. And best of all? You can do it again and again if you want because it’s so easy!
08. The Play on Shapes
When you’re trying to make a statement with your design, it can be tempting to go all out and just add as many things as possible. But the best way to create an eye-catching space is by finding balance in your maximalism. This means using patterns that complement each other and using color palettes that work in harmony together.
This room is so bold with its blue and orange color scheme, but it doesn’t feel overwhelming because there are only a few elements that use those colors. The circular pattern of the couch compliments the clean lines of the built in shelves, making them feel like they belong together.
09. The Fun Floorplan
We love how this floorplan incorporates so many different styles into one cohesive unit. From the wooden floors to the industrial style wall sconces, it’s clear that this space has been carefully thought out by its owners and designers alike.
The neutral walls work well with the bright pops of color from the rug and pillows, which helps create contrast without overwhelming the eye.
10. The Print Shelfie
If you’re looking for a way to add some color and personality to a small space, try this cute shelfie. This is a great way to bring in an unexpected element like the gold frames and make it feel cohesive with your existing decor. Repeating an item such as fun prints in frames is a great way to pack a punch and make your living room feel personal.
