Mxm. Maximalist interiors.

Among the twenty-three “maximalist” interiors featured in this striking volume, mostly designed for the super-rich and awash with opulent furnishings of every kind, a very different note is struck by the functionalist but quirky interior of Brian Housden’s own house in Hampstead, well photographed here (pp 116-123).
