We love a good clean, crisp, white room as much as the next design obsessive, but there's something impressive about a room that wears color well. Legendary British designer Max Clendinning has long known this and, at age 90, shows no signs of straying from his trademark look. Younger designers and design enthusiasts whose Instagram accounts we love have also taken to adopting a maximalist, colorful aesthetic. Below, 7 of our faves.
I've never lived anywhere with such gorgeous change of seasons than Portland, Oregon // when we arrived in April it was awash in pink blossoms & now it's literally covered in yellow, orange & red leaves // I know many of you live in places like this, but for me it's really new (I moved to beautiful but mostly season-less California when I was eight years old) // I feel so lucky to get to experience the beauty of this amazing city right now // I even enjoy raking my yard
I spent the bulk of my weekend in the room, so I guess it makes sense that most of my 'grams are from in here, too--but I'm just so excited about my bedroom now that I got rid of our box spring and moved the bed under the window. Also, seeing my wallpaper up makes me unreasonably happy and I can't wait to cover the whole house in all the different patterns and colors. @TheJungalow #jungalowbytheriver #wallpaperbyjustina #jungalowstyle #cosmicdesertwallpaper
