Country Maximalism: How to Get the Look

Say hello to Country Maximalism, where big and country collide. The accents are bigger and bolder with loads of florals, painted wood, quilts, textures and more. Read on to learn how to get this look.

Pattern and Print

Too much is never enough with this trend of florals on plaids and stripes on neutrals. Rugs on top of rugs. Textiles or curtains overlaying wallpaper and abundant cozy pieces like doilies, slipcovers and crochet.

Naturally Eclectic

If you’re not keen on all of the patterns and prints, try mixing up wood and natural items. Dried flowers, plants, antiques and other collectibles can tell a beautiful story about your history and style in a more natural way.

Layer Up

Layer furniture with knitted and crocheted pillows and throws. Lay a vintage quilt over the back of a wingback chair or the seat of a cozy sofa. Country Maximalism means you go full blown on items that make you want to spend an extra day lounging in the country.

Bold Colors

Country design relies heavily on muted color tones but don’t be afraid to go bold with deep red, navy blue or even emerald green. Mix and match patterns or anchor the room with a few key pieces that are daring and mingle accents in muted tones around them.
