In the last decade, minimalism was very strong, being very prominent in different spaces. Now, maximalism comes to counteract it and create a balance. Maximalism brings uniqueness and boldness to the spaces, creating something happier and more personable, that’s why it will continue to be so successful.

Despite avoiding very glaring colors, the mix of prints and collages, especially on walls, will make the space more sophisticated and bolder at the same time. The best way to do this is use patterned and / or colored tiles, applying to only one wall, so that it does not contrast negatively with the prevailing style.
