If you prefer bold colours and abstract prints and do not affirm Marie Kondo’s KonMari minimalist method, chances are the maximalist home style is the one for you. However, having a small home and a penchant for maximalism may seem like an ultimate design dilemma.
Contrary to popular belief, you can indulge in contrasting colours, rich textures and punchy patterns even if you have a petite space. With some artful tips and interior paint ideas, this “more is more” aesthetic can be smartly integrated into any space!
Don’t be afraid to make over-the-top choices. Instead, pay attention to proportions to keep the look balanced. This could mean repeating a bold pattern or colour story throughout the room and allowing a curated decor piece or collection to dictate the look.
Working with a limited budget? Paint is your best bet! The best way to create a wow factor is through the use of coloured paint. And don’t just stop at walls, the ceiling, furniture, doors and windows offer plenty of opportunity to let your maximalist style take control without utilising too much space.

Embrace Neutrals Too
Having a maximalist decor style does not mean ‘cluttered’ or ‘busy’ looking. Even those with leaner aesthetics can embrace the beauty of maximalism with neutral hues that are grounded and soothing.
Show Off A Collection
Books, vinyl, sneakers- you name it! Use different colours, shapes, sizes and textures to make the room cosy.
Use Underused Space
Finding creative potential in unexpected places can help you maximize a small space. Using a wall, for example, can create an inspiring decor piece, think floor-to-ceiling shelves, a gallery wall or a built-in bookshelf!
