Maximalism: Where More is More

Maximalism: Where More is More

In the world of maximalism, more is more. If you're expecting a little one and want to break free from the traditional minimalist nursery design, you're in the right place. In this blog, we'll explore the pillars of maximalist design that will turn your nursery into a space that is vibrant, eclectic, and full of personality. We cannot wait to see what you create!



  • Harmonious Hues: Don't be afraid to mix and match a variety of bold and vibrant hues. Consider a palette of deep moody tones, like forest green, sapphire blue, and dark magenta. Incorporate these colors into the walls, furniture, and various decor elements for a visually stimulating environment.

  • Pattern Play: Maximalistic design embraces patterns in all their glory. Mix different patterns, such as florals, stripes, and geometric shapes. Opt for patterned wallpaper, rugs, and bedding to create a lively atmosphere. Just ensure there's a cohesive color scheme to tie everything together.

  • Statement Furniture: Make a bold statement with furniture pieces that demand attention. Choose a unique crib with intricate details or opt for a vintage dresser painted in a standout color. Consider including oversized furniture to bring a sense of grandeur to the nursery.

  • Eclectic Decor: Maximalism allows you to showcase a diverse range of decor items. From quirky wall art to plush, textured throw pillows, let your creativity run wild. Incorporate elements from different styles and eras to achieve an eclectic and personalized look.
  • Timeless Textures: Maximalistic nurseries are all about texture. Introduce different textures through rugs, curtains, and upholstery. Mix materials like velvet, boucle, and woven fabrics to add depth and visual interest.
  • Gallery Wall Elegance: Curate a gallery wall filled with a mix of framed art, mirrors, and decorative items. This not only serves as a focal point but also allows you to showcase your personal style. Include items that hold sentimental value for an extra touch of warmth.
