10. Christine McConnell’s home is Maximalist, Cottagecore, and Dark Academia all at The Same Time
Some of you may recognize Christine McConnell from her Netflix show called “The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell.” If you love the series, you’ll be happy to know that he real life house is very much the same vibe. She has antique and vintage pieces all throughout the house, and all of them feel sort of spooky. Christine also recently purchased a house in New York. Check out that video here.
9. Danny Elfman Has Priceless Antiques and Artwork
For those of you who don’t know him, Danny Elfman is a celebrity composer for some of Hollywood’s biggest movies. I feel like this is a great example of how you can have a lot of eccentric and over-the-top things in your house, and still find a way to display them in an elegant fashion.
8. Dita Von Teese Shows Off Her Pinup Dream Home
Some of you may recognize model and performer Dita Von Teese. Her home is completely glamorous and vintage inspired. She has amazing antiques throughout the house, but she also has an entire room filled with shoes that she’s worn on stage during her shows. I’ve seen this tour multiple times, because it’s that good.
7. Chatham Hellmers
This house gives me a lot of dark academia vibes. It’s very maximalist, but also has a lot of sharp edges and dark colors. Definitely something you would never expect to see in Birmingham, Alabama.
6. Pixie Windsor
If you live in Washington, DC, be sure to visit Miss Pixie’s shop. She gets amazing pieces for sale, and a lot of them end up in her house!
5. Amy Sedaris
Years ago, the Amy Sedaris house tour was my introduction to maximalist style. She is a comedian living in New York City, and the entire apartment is 100% her personality from top to bottom.
4. Kate Pearce
This farmhouse chic home in Long Island New York is on the borderline of maximalism. There is a ton of stuff in this house, but it all looks so elegant, it’s still very magazine-worthy.

This charming home tour is filled with some cute and over-the-top items you don’t want to miss.

1. Ali Arakawa
I absolutely love this house tour. One of my favorite features is Ali Arakawa’s entire wall of pictures of bearded men. Honestly, I thought I was the only one who did that.
