What Is Maximalism?

We all know the term “Minimalism” which is all about “less is more”. Maximalism is more about using design, features colours, shapes, tones, and different mediums to create an over-the-top space or feature.

While there are plenty of blogs and articles out there to help you transform your home’s interior into a maximalist paradise, there isn’t much about taking your exterior to the max.

Alongside maximalism design, there is another home design trend rapidly growing in popularity: outdoor living. While it has long been common for homes to have some outdoor entertaining space, like a patio or a deck, these days the chicest homes have fully outfitted outdoor rooms.

Outdoor spaces can be so much more than simple lawns

Outdoor spaces can be so much more than simple lawns. With the right creative vision, they can become dynamic extensions of the home, encompassing everything from open-air kitchens and cozy fire pits to sustainable water features, and even al fresco cinemas.

Bring the indoors outdoors


Cooler weather shouldn’t keep you cooped up indoors. Instead, embrace the season and snuggle up with a hot chocolate in your very own cosy outdoor space.
If you’re looking for new furnishings, stick with upholstered sofas and armchairs to ensure a warm and inviting space. Daybeds are also great statement pieces to add to your outdoor area and can be paired with cosy hanging chairs.

Choose versatile furniture pieces that are fully upholstered and will last you through the seasons. Look for pieces that make you want to spend time outdoors even though it’s chilly.

A fire pit is a crowd-pleaser

A fire pit is a crowd-pleaser, which attracts people through its magnificence. People simply love gathering around on a deck. In fact, including a fire pit when inviting friends over for a party will give you the best turnout ever. With your outdoor fire pit, you and your guests can spend the night toasting marshmallows, drinking beer, or enjoying some red wide as you watch fire pop and crackle. With such a feature, you will be able to enjoy winter gatherings and summer nights around a self-contained fire, which offers beauty, elegance, and warmth.
