What Houzz contributors are saying:
Layer on the throws…If your sofa or armchair has seen better days, disguise its tired upholstery with throws and blankets. Go for ones made from weighty, thick fabrics that will pad out the sofa and add to its comfort rather than mould to it. Be sure to layer up throws in various textures, too, to create a deep, sumptuous feel. Look out for patterned quilts, animal skins, knitted blankets and patchwork throws, then have fun combining them.
Pick a themeGot a collection of similar, beautiful pieces you’ve amassed over the years? Cluster them together and fill your mantelpiece with them alone. By choosing a theme and sticking to it, you’ll create a strong look that’s also a reflection of your personality. This is an ideal way to show off smaller objects that look lost on their own but create a statement display as a group. Try to pick a style that works with the rest of the space. These colourful glass vessels complement the bright artwork in the room perfectly.

Mix styles and erasEclectic and bohemian are the words that most often sum up a maximalist home, and sticking to one era or style is rarely an option for the magpie homeowner who loves this look. So mix it up to the max. If you love tribal artwork, animal prints, Victoriana, botanical details and rustic furniture – as well as the industrial look – there’s no need to pare it down. Being a maximalist can be pretty liberating! Get an expert’s view on mixing styles and eras
