A beautiful space relies on an aesthetic balance of patterns, textures, and colors. But what happens when you turn up the volume a little louder? Maximalist design creates feelings of joy and excitement, tying together a variety of vibrant elements to harness a cheerful, bold, and authentic environment.
Layering an eclectic mix of details within a space is a great way to express style. From the choice of furniture, to wall art
New York based designer Mikel Welch, known for his work with HGTV and his iconic New York based design firm, wanted “the owners to have a space of their own that’s not a bedroom and not an office” in the House Beautiful Whole Home located outside Fredericksburg, TX. Mikel successfully transformed the intimate space into a cozy and relaxing den using neutral colors and tons of textures, his motto “neutrals don’t have to be boring,” really came through in this inviting and tranquil sitting room. By adding lots of layers, Mikel was able to incorporate various textures and tones that aligned with his neutral vision and created The Hideout with “cave-like energy by bathing every surface in palate-cleansing neutrals”.
