如何装饰自己的家是一件非常个人的事情。你喜欢简单素净还是大胆精致的装潢?
 
Some say you can tell a lot about a person by the way they decorate their home. We often find pleasure in the things we stick in our houses, be it trinkets we bought on holiday, film memorabilia or paintings to liven up walls. And when we head to others’ houses, we often see things we appreciate, but wouldn’t have in our own homes, because maybe they’re not quite to our taste. The point is, the way we decorate our homes is very personal. And while many of us have plenty of stuff, there are always people who go that little bit further. So, when it comes to minimalism and maximalism, which one appeals to you more?
 
Minimalism was an art movement that started in the 1950s. Its basic principles are derivedfunctionaloptingsparsebland6 to live without many things – even boring or depressing. However, living in this way is seen by many as more practical.
 
Maximalism is the opposite of minimalism and started in the 1970s. It embraces the core ideals that ‘more is more’. While minimalism centres around the principle of decluttering, it’s easy to imagine that a maximalist home is overflowing7 with items – but that’s not the base idea. It’s more about filling the space – making the most of the area. Structured excess and bold colours combined with mixed patterns is what you will see in a home like this. For a minimalist, used to more simplistic designs, it could be overwhelming. But for those who embrace it, those things give a space personality.
 
The way you have your home is up to you! But, if you opt3 for maximalism, you may need to prepare for a bit more dusting.
