Is this home featured here: This Cozy Minnesota Home Will Make You Want a Candelabra | A Cup of Jo
You really out to go to the site and check it out. Meanwhile, here’s a peek to show you what I mean:
Some thoughts on this:
- There is a ton of objects in this photo, but they are orderly. There is a place for everything; things aren’t just thrown about.
- The objects are all attractive: nothing is just stuck somewhere.
- It helps to be in a nice room, but the good thing about maximalism is that you can turn even a boring box in to something attractive. (Much harder to do with minimalism
- The colour scheme is consistent here. That helps rest the eye as it moves around the room.
I highly recommend you go to Cup of Jo linked to above and see the rest of it. It’s inspiring for maximalists like myself. 🙂
Meanwhile a bold maximalism is achieved here, not so much by the amount of items as by the amount of bold colours and prints used throughout the place. It’s still not a big place, but it feels right. I guess that is all relative, but I love this.

And yet it looks like a beautiful space. Take a look.
