Maximalism in 2018

It’s finally Friday and its grey, cloudy and overcast in LA.  I thought the rain is coming but Siri said no.  Anyway, it will be a perfect day to cuddle at home, doing some heavy readings and just gathering all of my thoughts together.   I came across some topics on interior trends in 2018.   One of the trends that everybody is talking  about is Maximalism.  I talked about Maximalism in one of my blog last year and it seems that this trend  is going to mainstream in 2018.  For me, Maximalism is so inevitable after several-years of Kondoing and Scandinavia minimalism.  It gives you a such big release and freedom to express yourself.  When you start to see a lot of colors, patterns , textures and adoring objects, you truly feel happy from inside.

 

First of all, here is the food.  This is one of of the events we went recently.  Don’t you just love these colorful veggies?

And here is the tabletop I just did for our MLK weekends.  Don’t you agree with me—the more the merrier?

Here are some great plates and linens with patter-on-pattern Maximalism style.

Then here is the art event we went recently.  It’s Pip & Pop’s debut US installation entitled “Here Comes Sunshine”.   The installation is constructed by highly detailed works that embrace notions of abundance, utopian dreams and fleeting pleasure.  The installation made me feel so happy for the whole night.

 

 

 

Last but not else, here are some great Maximalism interiors I really enjoy.

It has been a long and productive week. The most fun  thing to do now is to chill out at my backyard with a cup of latte. What is your favorite drink on Friday afternoon?  I am going through some latest designs for inspiration.  Coral and gray are two colors on my mind.  Somehow,  I find the combo very intricate.  The two colors together kind of balance off each other and create the relaxing yet cheerful vibe.  Maybe that is my expectation for the coming weekend. Here are some more pictures I curated for this fresh color combo from fashion and interiors.  Enjoy!
