The style that embraces the all-out--beautiful color palettes, luxurious textiles, patterns, and embellishment--has made a comeback. Maximalism is the epitome of passion, one in which Scandi-style, stripped bare, and pared-back interiors have no place. Abigail Ahern guides us through the change in the world of interiors as the pendulum swings away from minimalism and over to our increasing desire for self-expression and optimism. Readers will learn how to break the "rules" of interior design, play fast and loose with different periods in a single room, and have fun. Maximalism allows us to dip into color palettes and any decade or style, with the effect of stirring up emotions and creating a bedazzling space we never want to leave.
