Maxi Malist’s New Year’s Resolutions

Text

Dear Maximalists,

I’ve personally always been more of a ‘new season’ than a ‘new year’ kind of person. If a woman can produce a child in nine months I see no reason to wait a year before changing your interior. However, I’m aware most of us like to go out with the old and in with the new at this time of year. So, before you go chucking out your 30-year marriage for the young man next door I’ve provided some ideas for some slightly less dramatic new year’s resolutions for the home.

Cleanse

After packing away the glitz and the glamour of Christmas, our interiors can feel a little lacklustre so why not use this opportunity to give your home a good deep clean and clear out? A cleanse can be as small or large as you feel fit. Get rid of things that no longer serve a purpose or bring you happiness before beginning to think about a new colourway for the sofa cushions or reupholstering the whole thing.

Cool it

Rome wasn’t built in a day and ‘Changing Rooms’ ended for a reason. Sometimes we can feel rushed to get the whole house done. But try setting the resolution of working on just one room at a time. Giving a room time and space to organically grow and develop will give you a much more personal and unique outcome. A home should be filled with collected treasures from around the world rather than a collection of Swedish flat-packed furniture.

Collect

With a new year and the chance for a new start, it can be daunting figuring out where to begin. So, my advice would be to enjoy it. Choose a new interiors-themed obsession and spend the year learning about it, being inspired by it and collecting it. By obsession, I mean decorative plates or embroidered fabrics not sneaky photos of the neighbour in the garden next door. This new hobby will not only give you joy but will help you to piece together and cultivate a stylish interior. The collection can be your very own living mood board.

I wish you all a very happy New Year and I hope you enjoy it in true maximalist style.

All my love, Maxi. X
