Must Read: Maximalism Is The New Black

Minimalism is the design darling of all Singapore residents. Its unique simplicity and distinct straight forwardness had made it a total fan favorite in Singapore. However, there has been a gradual recession in the amount of minimalist interiors in the past few months. Instead, it has been slowly taken over by the concept of ‘Maximalism.’

Maximalism is the complete opposite of minimalism. It consists of rather customized interior design elements that boast a personal and individualized flair. So further, we’ll be taking a look at 5 reasons Maximalism is the new ‘it!’


1. Brimming with personality

Maximalism is the kind of aesthetic that is brimming with character and personality. There is no restraint on what might or might not work to make the space beautiful or not. It all depends on the perspective. For example, if the client feels like they want a vertical garden in their living room media wall, then they can definitely get it.



2. Fun colors

Fun and exuberant colors are a major part of the Maximalism aesthetic. Since there is very little restraint in this particular interior design style, people are always looking to add more and more personality. So if you have a combination of favorite colors, you can always mix it up in your maximalized interior designs.


3. Avant-garde elements

Maximalism is quite a unique interior design concept – in that it allows the client much more liberty and leeway to get creative with their spaces. So it is no surprise that you can even go avant-garde with this specific style. This fun sitting alcove with the peculiar cushions and throw pillows is a great example of how far you can actually go with this aesthetic.



4. Mix-and-match

The great thing about the Maximalism style is that it is not particularly binding. In fact, it allows a little too much freedom when it comes to mixing and matching aesthetics within the same interiors. For example, if you want to work in parametric geometric aspects along with a green wall design in your spaces, then it allows you to go for it.



5. With the lighting

Usually, there is always a limit on the amount of lighting accents you’re allowed to carry out in a space. One statement light fixture is all you can manage in a regular old interior design. But with Maximalism, you can even have fun with the lighting design. You can use various colors, different light sources and even statement pieces to make your overall ambience more fun.
