DESIGN DETAILS MAXIMALISM
Hassan Abdullah from Les Trois Garçons shares his design mantra
Be bold in a hallway. A strong pattern used here creates a lasting impression without being overpowering – people pass through this space rather than linger.
Strong wallpapers need strong accessories.
Think statement artworks, statues, mirrors and lighting.
If you love bold pattern, create rooms with symmetry.
It ensures order and calms things down a little. Use different wallpapers in different rooms. In this house a selection of patterns reflect the mood of a room and the purpose of that space. Don’t fear pattern in a bedroom. But do stick to muted colours to create calm.
Use accessories to add contrast.
A strong wallpaper such as a Victorian damask evokes that design period, so add contemporary pieces to mix it up. ➤
