To help you get started on turning your home into a maximalist dreamworld, we teamed up with renowned designer Dani Dazey to share her expert tips.

Start With a Mood Board 

It never hurts to start with a mood board of colors, furniture and decor items that catch your eye – things that spark joy. Start with a wall or piece of furniture and slowly build on that by layering in more things that make you happy. Keeping within a color scheme is a great way to keep things cohesive as you add more elements to the mix.

Make a Statement with Your Exterior 

The exterior is your first touch point to the home – give your guests a taste of what to expect inside, on the outside. Adding pops of color like a painted door, plants and updated hardware like the Yale x Pantone Assure Lock® 2 Limited Edition in PANTONE 18-1750 Viva Magenta can make a huge impact. Keeping things both functional and beautiful is always a goal.

Embrace Mixing and Matching Prints

Patterns, color and textures are essential! Don’t stray away from mixing and matching prints in a space – it’s a fun challenge to try and make them work. When choosing a color scheme, select two to four colors for a single space and try to stick with them. Playing with different hues allows you to bring more depth to the overall color palette, which gives more dimension to the aesthetic. And finally, texture! It can add so much dimension and richness to a room. An easy way to incorporate texture is adding art, wall coverings and textiles on floors and furniture.
