Trend Alert – What is Modern Maximalism?

So if you just caught up with the interior design changes of the millenium to simple design with little color, get ready for a switch to Modern Maximalism!  Classic patterns are being re-invented and saturated color is being used.  International Designers are re-interpreting patterns such as florals, plaids, abstracts, etc.  Pierre Frey, Wesley Hall, Jim Thompson, Tony Duquette and Hollywood Regency are all hot again.  Details such as trimmings, cording, embroidery, netting, and buttons are making there way back to interiors.  Warm toned metals such as gold, brass and rose gold are here to stay.  With bold walls and furnishings the accent pieces will be the neutral accessories.  Accent walls are now for wall covering and murals, not a change in paint color.  Detail matters again! So if you like what’s coming in Interior Design, you need an Interior Designer more than ever! Photo credits to Pierre Frey Paris for the above room.
