#maximalist

“Returning” 30x22” acrylic and charcoal on GORGEOUS paper. For a while, I tried to submit to the oh-so-popular minimalist aesthetic. I tried it on many times, but it never quite fit. I’ve come to accept my own preferences and LOVE my own MAXIMALIST aesthetic. I love color & pattern, and ASYMMETRY gives me life. This piece shows the maximalism bursting through the confines of minimalism. Swipe ➡️ to see a close-up is the EDGES of the gorgeous paper. 🙌🎨🙏

A Kalispell Cabin, Score 4.55 🌟 I had a feeling that this one wouldn't be as well received because other designers made their rooms so light and I went with black. But I still like my design choice 😊

🎯 I’ve been thinking a lot lately about pinpointing exactly how I would describe my personal design aesthetic and point of view. How to distill it down to just one sentence that sums up my own personal recipe for the secret sauce. Here’s what I’ve come up with: I approach design with a sense of Humour. I don’t believe in taking things too seriously and I DO believe in curating spaces that make people smile. I spotted this little fella at @willemandjools yesterday and he caught my eye straight away. This dude GETS it. I’ve got a lot of good stuff on the go and I’m making an effort to share even more of that here..Are you ready to see more of my styling shenanigans? #yallreadyforthis #adventuresinhoarding

And just like that, the triangles are gone! I liked the painted design just fine but it was always just a temporary paint job to cover the beige while this wallpaper was still in production. I knew from the beginning it was “the one” 😂 and I have to say, now that it’s finally up, I’m definitely not disappointed 😍 Happy Saturday friends! . . . . . . #wallpapers #crashbangcolour #mycolorfulhome #colorlovedecor #colorismyjam #kittymccall #maximalistinteriors #homedecor #eclectichome #eclectichomedecor #brightandbold #changeitup #colorfulhome #colorfulinterior #eclecticdesign @colorlovedecor #eclecticdecor #diyprojects #homedecor #storyofmyhome #myeclectichome #interiordesign #eclecticinteriors #myhousethismonth #colormakesmehappy #brightboldhome #boldinteriors #diy #maximalist #colorfulroom #housetohome #greathomestaketime

It’s here! It’s here! My Victorian engagement ring is back from being resized at the jeweler. Assayed in London in 1876, the ring has six antique seed pearls and six antique turquoise cabochons - and I’m in LOVE. Special huge thanks to @addysvintage for all her amazing help, and for having my dream ring in her shop!! And thank you to @broer.freeman.jewelers for resizing, and for your impeccable service!! 💍 . . . . #willyoumarryme #engaged #engayged #gaycouple #gettinghitched #engagementring #toledo #midwestisbest #thrillofthehunt #moreismore #victoriana #vintagehome #vintagedecor #antiques #bling #retro #retrohome #thrifting #vintagefinds #maximalist #interiors #interiordesign #thriftshop #vintagefinds #victorianjewellery #warehouse #decorarivearts #jotd #howivintage #jewelrygram #instajewelry

Countryside Cuisine, Score 4.78🌟 Oooh. Not bad, considering this was not necessarily a "dump room" (a room where you unload high-priced prizes that you don't think look particularly good, but help you get to leveling up) but I didn't choose the very best options in favor of choosing good enough pieces that were very high value. Just for the challenge of creating the highest value room I could. I did, by the way, at $63k+

"It is best to use [books] as part of the decorative treatment of the walls." -Edith Wharton, The Decoration of Houses . . Edith Wharton and I agree about a lot of things 🙃 Do you consider your books to be a part of your home's decoration? Every time I go into a new person's house, the first thing I look at is the books - be they many or be they few 😅 I feel like the books on one's shelves say a ton about who they are as a person. I wonder what the books on my shelves say about me? What do the books on your shelves say about you?? . . Just some Saturday musings for you. Hope you're all having a beautiful day. Any fun plans? I'm just trying desperately to get caught up on blanket sewing 😬 Glad I get to look into my library as I do it 😊 . . . . . . . . #thisoldhouse #homesweethome #homebeautiful #homelibrarygoals #homelibrary #librarylife #librarystyle #librarydesign #librariesofinstagram #homestyle #maximalist #maximalism #favoriteauthor #edithwharton #decorationofhomes #styleinspiration #bohostyle #bookstyle #bookishhome #booklife #bookishlife #bookishlifestyle #bookshelves #shelfie

Layering objects calms me. So, this Saturday is sponsored by this quirky little corner and all of the things I collect because I love them. Green isn’t on the top of my list of favorite colors, but I’d never touch this antique dresser from my Mom’s childhood home. The paint and patina are original - I’d never try to re-tell those stories. The antique cabinet was a $4 thrift find that made me squeal in public. It is heavy and generally problematic in that it is narrow and can’t be hung easily because studs are too far apart. (I think it may work in my powder room. 😉) The little girl prints are part of a set of four I’ve been hoarding for ages. When I pulled them out again, it prompted my husband to caution against turning into “a weird old lady who collects those weird little dolls.” My daughter quickly reminded him that I am that lady. 😂 Cheers to the quirky collectors out here just trying to honor cool, old things.

Been MIA on this account since going back to school! The beginning of the year madness being a teacher leaves barely any free time and if you manage to find any it normally gets filled with sleep and family! I’ve finally gotten back in the swing of things which means more time decorating, painting and creating! Found these perfect anthro plates at home goods for $2 and I just couldn’t resist!!! Yes I know I’m supposed to be decorating with “fall colors” but how could I resist such a perfect fit?! . . . . . #anthropologiehome #colorismyjam #colorlovedecor #mycolorfulhome #blackwalls #diningroom #tablesetting #brightandbold #mycolourfulinterior #colorismyjam #colorfulhome #colorfulinterior #eclecticdesign #colorlovedecor @colorlovedecor #maximalistinteriors #mycolorfulhome #eclecticdecor #homedecor #storyofmyhome #myeclectichome #interiordesign #eclecticinteriors #eclectichome #colormakesmehappy #brightboldhome #boldinteriors #diy #maximalist #colorfulroom #mycolorfulinterior #housetohome #myhousethismonth #greathomestaketime

Tropical Villa - My Homes - Kids' Bedroom 👶 I kept it simple and well coordinated, low 💵 for most items, except the bed, because all were 💎 priced, & I did not fill many purple bubbles. It's still pretty snazzy, with that big ol' ship! I used that little hexagonal limited wall art with flamingos, which matches well 💖

Well, I finally got dinged for having two non-neutral colors featured in my design (green & yellow). Looks like the top performers went with all yellow or all green. I, of course, still like my design ☺️ A Cozy Hideaway, Score 4.31 🌟

A Blooming Beauty 🇫🇷 💜 I think the key to making it through this purple limited decor time is to use lots of neutrals for the big pieces and keep the purple to the accents only. I LOVE LOVE LOVE purple but it is not popular with the voters. They do tend to like it when there are touches of it along with a lot of a monochromatic neutral, though. So that's my strategy during this time. If it were up to me, every room ever would just be purple everything 😆 And probably before it's over I might just do that for fun!

Carolina Charm, Score: 4.29🌟 Phew! 😅 TBH I didn't like the pressure of staying on the leaderboard, much as it was fun to see myself there. I'd rather just stick to my personal challenge of designing rooms I like spending the fewest game dollars I can 👍💰😁
