2. Stay on Solid GroundNoz Design does a masterful job at maximalism decor in this living space. You’ll note the walls and the sofas are solid colors. Then the designer brings in patterns for the rug, pillows, accent chair and the drapery. The furniture has a light, French flair with leggy frames that are not visually dense. With a main complementary color palette of blue and orange, she then works in other accents of olive and black. Combined, this room packs a punch without being completely overwhelming.
