The great thing about maximalist living room design is how you can really go extravagant with your choices. This is the time to bring out the animal print and exotic decor—and don’t hold back! For maximum impact, pair animal prints with equally bold colors like red and gold.

Who says maximalist living room design has to be filled with dark colors? You can also go bright with white walls and clean white furniture, then fill your walls with bright paintings and stuff your sofa with different throw pillows!

 

5. Retro Maximalist Living Room Design

Maximalist living room design can also work like this: pick your favorite design style, then go bold and over-the-top with it! This retro space is definitely a sight for the eyes with different colors, patterns, and paintings everywhere.

Bohemian pieces also work very well with a maximalist design. Even when there’s so much going on in a room (like the one above!), it still looks laid-back and cool.

 

8. Balanced Design

Again, just because you’re making things bigger and bolder, doesn’t mean you don’t have rules to follow! Keep a balance in your maximalist space by matching your furniture and making sure your wall decor is proportional.

 

9. Texture and Color Overload

When I first saw this photo, I didn’t know where to look first! This has got to be the epitome of maximalist living room design. It isn’t just in your furniture choices or decor, adapting a maximalist design has to affect everything in your space. Go big, or go home!

 

10. Detailed Maximalist Living Room Design

Even if a maximalist design is about more of everything, I think it’s still all about the details. Just take this stunning living room. It’s filled to the brim with prints, colors, and textures—even on the ceilings! Remember, leave no stone unturned with your maximalist living room design.
