Designers are appealing to our desire to decorate, now that we are “consuming” again. There isn’t much subtlety here because it’s the age of social media sharing, and these graphic patterns, colors and over-scaled embellishments are photogenic.

So slip on your oversized spectacles, here are a few ways I am seeing Maximalism evolve into interior design. by Jana Platina Phipps
