If you’re ready for a room refresh, start thinking boldly because maximalism is here to stay.
Take it to the next level with moody colors and textures inspired by modern day maximalist muses such as Diana Vreeland and Iris Apfel. Remember, the first rule of maximalism is more is more, so have fun.
Inject personality into your space with a conversation starting sconce. Made from blown glass, this one from Hammerton can be hung vertically or horizontally to your room’s specifications. It comes in eight finishes such as gilded brass, burnished bronze and matte black, making it an easy lighting sculpture to incorporate into any design.
The Lighting Loft
When set on a dining table, these 13-inch chargers from storied Italian heritage brand Ginori 1735 make a statement. Fanciful creatures such as butterflies and dragonflies dot the plate, adding whimsy. Available in three additional colors, they’re a simple way to add interest alongside practicality. You can also hang a few plates on a wall for a visual statement that will keep your eyes hungry.

Described by The Drawing Room founders Seth Van den Bergh and Daniel Zimmerman as a “vertical timeline,” this side table is very much representative of the brand’s modern ethos and the firm’s dedication to the intentional and esoteric. Made to order and hand-blown in the Murano tradition, it’s as much a showpiece as it is a side table.
The Drawing Room ATL
Ground your room with something painterly in the form of this tile-inspired wallpaper from Catherine Martin by Mokum. A faux-linen embossing treatment makes it irregular enough to resemble actual tile, and a digital print keeps it modern. If emerald isn’t your color, the wallpaper comes in four additional jewel tones to satisfy any scheme. Bonus: it’s printed on vinyl for maximum durability.
