Minimal maximalism is a total oxymoron, but once you know what it is, you’re going to start noticing it in homes everywhere. And probably seek it out for your own living room or kitchen or hell, cloffice revamp. Because honestly, it’s the middle ground we’ve been seeking for the better part of the last decade, which is why we’re deeming it the top emerging design trend of 2023.
Minimal maximalism was one of the major aesthetics the team at Moen uncovered as they looked at current design movements in the US, France and Italy. But what does that even mean? Essentially, it’s working with clean, neutral or tonal palettes (borrowing from minimalism), then keeping things visually interesting by incorporating ornamental furniture or a variety of textures (hello, maximalism). Your statement pieces are intricate and eye-catching, but you don’t have a lot of clutter, creating that spacious, airy feeling minimalist rooms tend to have.
