Designers Revive the ’80s

Goodbye whites and grays, maximalism is making a comeback in 2018.

Renowned interior designers are bringing back the ’80s over-the-top trend by mixing colors, patterns, wallpapers and accessories to achieve a whimsical aesthetic.

Bold-on-Bold Accents 

Tasteful maximalism is the theme throughout TriBeCa’s newest Whitehall Interiors-designed luxury condo, 91 Leonard. Taking inspiration from the neighborhood’s industrial past with design elements such as exposed door hinges and whitewashed flooring, the building’s design is brought into the present with kitchens that include a combination of blackened steel backsplashes and mixed metal hardware, as well as powder rooms that include a vibrant onyx feature wall.

Mixed Coloring

90 Morton, a 12-story condominium in Manhattan’s West Village neighborhood boasts bold, warm colors of green and gold within its lobby to maximize a welcoming vibe to all who enters the building. With interiors by Leroy Street Studio, the team stayed true to the historic roots of the building, which was once a printing warehouse, while maximizing a sense of authenticity and refinement in the loft-like spaces.

Striking Patterns

With interiors by The Design High, model units at Level, a new community located in the waterfront enclave of Williamsburg, boast bold patterns and bright couches. “There’s nothing more impactful than a beautiful couch,” says The Design High’s founder Highlyann Krasnow. “Invest in a well-made sofa, accessorize with statement pillows, and build the room around it.”

Vibrant Colors

Step inside RISE, one of the luxury condominium towers located atop Brickell City Centre, and you will be greeted by vibrant colors. In fact, Swire Properties Inc. recently launched a prestigious international design exhibition at RISE, which displays the maximalist design trend. During the 18-day experiential exhibition, renowned designers curated three penthouses with innovate landscape installations featuring bright colors, bold patterns, vibrant wallpapers and exotic rugs.
