Once You See This Bookcase, You'll Be Ready to Embrace Maximalism Too

It seems like more people are departing from the ever-popular minimalist aesthetic and adopting maximalist-infused designs — in fact, it's one of the biggest trends for fall. The change is completely refreshing, especially in this instance from Laurel & Wolf. It all starts with a bold black and white rug, which makes a graphic statement that balances the colorful crowd of ceramic vessels on the top shelf overhead. Meanwhile, the bookcase hides the colorful spines of the hardcovers and magazines in favor of a more cohesive, page-front look, selecting just a small handful of compelling covers for quick dashes of color. And to balance out all of that bold beauty, a simple dining set and matching pendant light ground the aesthetic with subtle, natural style. This look is all about a "more is more" approach. The stacks of books, rows of vases, and smatterings of art all make for a kaleidoscope of curated design, giving you the chance to show off your personality with confidence.
