While minimalism has been an interior design trend for a long while now, not everyone feels comfortable keeping their space sparse. For lovers of layers and eclectic design, maximalism is a must. However, there’s a method to its madness. Far more involved than cluttering up the home with trinkets galore, maximalism makes way for strategically showing off the things you love. Art, decor, furniture, and more come together, fusing different colors, materials, and styles to create a “wow” factor that makes for sophisticated warmth.

Think Pink
