You've heard the design creed 'less is more' countless times over–too many times over. Even Coco Chanel's creed of dressing advised women to remove one item before leaving the house in fear of looking overdone. For your living space, the suggestion that one should play it safe becomes ever more prevalent–until recently, where it feels as though the reverence of individual style on the street has encouraged a more dynamic, bold and personal style of home design and decor. Sasha Bikoff, a fresh face in the interior design world, is not afraid of color–or prints, bold wallpapers, antiques, statement home accessories and the eclectic mix of them all together. Here, the designer's take on how to master the art of maximalist decorating–and how to have fun while doing it.
"When working in a softer palette, I always look towards Impressionist paintings. Those paintings almost always are soft interpretations of natural elements, and I think that with pastels you should think of mixing colors together like you would in a bouquet of flowers, or in a garden. A lot of these softer tones can also read as neutrals in a space; light pinks can read like nudes and creams, while lilacs come off like misty grays. If you revert back to nature and see how all those colors work together organically, you can easily apply them to a space as well."
