The minimalist era of white backdrops, monochromatic furnishings, and sparse décor is nearing its end, and maximalism, the newest interior design trend, is officially in. While some claim that it’s a part of the ongoing aesthetic pull between minimalist Millennials and maximalist Generation Zs, most experts seem to think it’s a direct response to the pandemic. The theory of experts is that the lack of stimulation and sensory limitations we have collectively experienced during our time spent isolated indoors has created an increased desire for a much-needed sensory overload.
The maximalist décor trend is all about embracing excess; think large doses of color, exuberant patterns, and plenty of textural elements. While excess and extravagance have been linked to hyper-consumerism in the past, the recent trend towards maximalism is anything but. By embracing a maximalist style, your home is bound to be a representation of you, rather than a reflection of design tastes found on almost any influencers’ Instagram grids. In stark contrast to the minimalist movement that has dominated the past decade, maximalism allows for unrestricted freedom of expression, enabling homeowners to indulge in the endless list of design styles available at their fingertips.
A carefully curated home that embraces maximalism, like this newly-listed, completely custom-built estate in the prestigious Atlanta Country Club of East Cobb, effortlessly exudes elegance while highlighting one’s unique, personal flair. The exterior of this home emanates luxury at every step, from its alluring, white stone façade imported from Turkey to its wrought-iron front door and towering columns.
The stunning 2-story foyer leads directly into an elegant living room with soaring ceilings and a remarkable fireplace that extends to the ceiling and highlights the sensational views through the room’s wall of windows. The main level’s Travertine tile and Rosewood floors accentuate the home’s opulence, coupled with its dramatic arched ceilings and doorways, giving it a true feeling of luxury at every turn.
Adorned with top-of-the-line, stainless steel appliances and white, custom-built cabinets, the gourmet chef’s kitchen is every cook’s dream. Boasting two sinks, an oversized island, and an open floor plan that combines the room with a seating area and dining area with its own luxurious, stone-carved fireplace, the kitchen is a true statement piece that brings together the home.
With unsurpassed features and spectacular craftsmanship throughout, along with plenty of natural light and fairway views from near every room in the house, it’s clear that no detail was left overlooked in this home’s design and maximalist style décor.
