Home Decor Inspiration from Franchesca Ramsey: Maximalist Style on a Budget

Deeply Madly Modern's Kellie Brown visited the home of Franchesca Ramsey to discuss her design philosophy and how she brings her space to life. 

Maximalist, Budget Bougie, and Accessible Elegance

Franchesca describes her home style as maximalist, which means she embraces a plethora of textures, colors, and patterns to create a rich, layered look. But what makes her style stand out is how she blends this maximalism with budget-friendly choices, creating a 'Budget Bougie' aesthetic. Her home is a testament to the fact that one doesn’t need to spend a fortune to have a beautiful and stylish living space. It’s all about being resourceful and imaginative.

The Golden Touch

One of the most striking features of Franchesca’s home is her use of gold accents. From gorgeous gold animals to various knick-knacks, these elements add a touch of luxury and elegance, proving that thoughtful details can elevate the overall look of a home without breaking the bank.

Crafting the Perfect Color Palette

To achieve her distinctive style, Franchesca utilized, a website known for helping designers and decorators find the perfect color palette. This tool allowed her to select and harmonize colors that reflect her personality and taste, ensuring that every room feels cohesive yet distinct.

Artistic Walls: Murals, Wallpaper, and Decals

In her quest to personalize her space further, Franchesca painted murals on her walls, incorporating shapes and bold colors, complemented by light sculptures. For those who might shy away from picking up a paintbrush, consider wallpaper murals or decals as an alternative to create a similar impactful and personalized look.

The Art of the Gallery Wall

One of Franchesca’s proudest décor achievements is her gallery wall, which she curated meticulously over several months. She emphasizes that creating a gallery wall is a journey, not a sprint. It involves selecting pieces that not only complement each other but also resonate with the curator’s aesthetics and memories. Franchesca shares a practical tip for arranging the gallery wall: trace the items on brown paper bags and place them on the wall to visualize the layout before committing to nails or hooks. Her favorite hunting grounds for unique pieces are Etsy, flea markets, and thrift stores, highlighting her knack for mixing and matching while keeping an eye on affordability.

Patience is Key

Franchesca’s experience with her gallery wall serves as a reminder that decorating one’s home is a personal and evolving process. She candidly shares her 'gallery debacle,' particularly the challenge of finding the right pieces for her bathroom wall. This dilemma underscores the importance of patience in the decorating process, resisting the urge to rush just for the sake of completion.
