Welcome to the 'more is more' world of decorating, or as it's more commonly know in the business, Maximalism. A style that embraces the all-out: beautiful colour palettes, luxurious textiles, patterns and embellishment. Maximalism is the epitome of passion, one in which Scandi-style, stripped bare and pared-back interiors have no place. Abigail Ahern guides us through the sea change in the world of interiors as the pendulum swings away from minimalism, over to our increasing desire for self-expression and optimism.

Learn how to break the 'rules' of interior design, play fast and loose with different periods in a single room and have fun. Maximalism allows you to dip into colour palettes and any decade or style, with the effect of stirring up emotions and creating a bedazzling space you'd never want to leave.

Chapters include:

Developing a Sense of Style: Research tips and how to begin, from trawling Instagram and tearing sheets from magazine.

Expressing Yourself: Learning which rules to forget and which guidelines you would do best to remember to make your decorating foolproof.

All-Important Accessories: Learn to create a story whereby every object in the room supports the same vision.

Identifying Your Palette: Experiment with thinking outside the box and be curious with colour - what matters most is not the colour but the tone.

Creating a Sense of Home: All homes should have a soul and you should be the mixologist, taking risks and mixing up furniture styles with aplomb.

Creating Ambience with Lighting: Lighting is key and enables you to set a mood that is instantly tangible and has a direct impact on mood and energy.

Styling Your Space: The secret ingredient to making a maximalist home work, and not feeling like a cluttered mess.

Challenge the Norm: Harness beauty and oddity, sensuous and the macabre, to create a decorative melting pot where elements vibrate with energy.

Little Black Book: Take a peek inside Abigail's little black book where we find the best global decor stores not to be missed.
