When I first moved into my apartment, my mantra was definitely 'less is more'. I guess it was a convenient rule to live by since I had brought very little stuff to Melbourne when I moved here 4 years ago. However, since then, I have started to acquire more and more stuff (including a bf and some of his stuff). So, in the end, my once minimilist aesthetic is being thrown out the window and I am finding myself embracing maximalism.
I think my biggest problem is that I'm a collector. And my current vice is art. Unfortunately my apartment is small and two walls are glass so there isn't much available wall space for hanging my rapidly growing collection. For a while, I decided I should stop buying paintings and started to amass sculpture instead (given how much more floor space there is compared to wall space). This is not really a long term solution though since I still want to be able to walk around, and actually live in, my apartment.

Another said I could rotate what I actually hang on the walls (and lean all the rests against each other on the floor somewhere in the apartment). I also have been considering this as a last resort:
