Trend Alert – What is Modern Maximalism?

So if you just caught up with the interior design changes of the milenium to simple design with little color, get ready for a switch to Modern Maximalism!  International Designers are re-interpreting patterns such as florals, plaids, abstracts, etc.  Pierre Frey, Wesley Hall, Jim Thompson, Tony Duquette and 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 and to make sure it lasts.  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 a professional more than ever!
