When Too Much Is Not Enough

18 January 2017

Who ever came up with the phrase “over the top” just wasn’t thinking clearly or maybe just didn’t have access to contemporary designer wallpaper, stylish designer cushions and funky fabrics.

Sure there’ll always be a place for cool as a cucumber Scandinavian paired back aesthetics but sometimes it’s fun to add the glamour of O.T.T to your lounge, diningroom, bedroom or kitchen with some brightly printed luxury fabrics, cushions or wallpapers.

Whether it’s geometrics, animal prints, striped or retro. Linen, velvet lush cotton or something more simple. Whether it’s upholstery, wall coverings or just a couch jam packed with pink, yellow, teal or blue – sometimes too much is not quite enough.

Here are our top three awesome OTT pioneers clashing their way to our hearts with their drapes and furnishings and making our eyes pop out of your heads while they do their unusual decorative dance.

 

Gianni Versace (R.I.P)

Silver & Red Cherry Blossom Wall Mural hero image

 

From luxurious wallpaper on the ceilings of his bedroom to 24 carat gold inlays in his pool Gianni Versace was flamboyant and big and his house was an extension of his designer lifestyle. You might not have his millions but you can have his look. Mix and match bold patterns and think about using designer wallpaper and upholstery in fresh and original ways. Play with the textures of linen next to metallics. Be a little more Miami than you’re used to.

Pierre Cardin Bubble Home

 

Perfect if you’re a space hobbit or someone for who modernism doesn’t always mean a glass on a brick in the corner of a white room that smells like a shop. If you are unfamiliar with it, the Pierre Cardin Bubble Home is just that. A home made from a series of bubbles sitting at at odds with the craggy French landscape where it looks to have landed from planet WTF. Funky, abstract and colourful It’s not what you might call subtle but then – do we need more subtle?
