Implications - Maximalism in the home is on the rise as a direct response to the sometimes-restrictive and pretentious nature of minimalism and its advocates. The shift from prioritizing minimalism to the reemergence of maximalism in the home also coincides with consumers' growing interest in self-expression through aesthetics that are unique, "Instagrammable", and/or heavily branded.
