Are you a minimalist or a maximalist?

Minimalism has been at the forefront of the lifestyle space for years. Neutral color palettes, clean surfaces, and functional storage is the stuff of mommy dreams. For good reason too, eliminating excess in your life and home can help make room for things that are more positive like meaningful relationships and can even decrease anxiety. However, despite our best efforts, this lifestyle sometimes just doesn’t fit. If you have started practicing minimalism and feel like your self-expression is being hindered, look into maximalism. It just might be what you are looking for. Rather than the opposite, maximalism is the response to minimalism. It does not encourage clutter and disorder, it promotes incorporating things that you love into your home and life. Both of these lifestyles can be extremely positive and can improve your quality of life.
