Regal Revival: Homeowners Newfound Love for Maximalism

For the majority of the last decade, a clean and simple room has been the ultimate ‘interior goals’ when it comes to decorating, allowing 21st century minimalism to outshine all other design trends. However, tastes are quickly changing to favour a more traditional and busier look. Maximalism encourages the idea that more is most definitely more and is often referred to as ‘cluttercore’. Characterised by bold patterns that call to the eccentricity of Impressionist design and harmonious use of colour, this eclectic approach gives any room a deeper sense of personality that can be both modern and traditional. Following months of being stuck indoors, this particular design aesthetic has risen in popularity as people seek to make their houses feel more like homes. In turn, the art of self-expression and reinvention throughout the home has become a more favourable option than some simplistic looks with little ‘personality’. At Richard Burbidge, we are celebrating maximalism through the trend Regal Revival, which combines the iconic décor of the 19th century and a nostalgic ode to Gatsby-esque glamour, with modern and sophisticated touches. Encapsulating the grandeur of maximalism with gold accents, smooth finishes, and deep tones to complement our stairparts and decorative mouldings. To achieve this traditional charm, Richard Burbidge recommends wall panelling painted with rich tones, surrounded by deep woods and abstract paintings. These decorative mouldings can help to totally transform the character of a whole room and embrace a more retro style. You can check out our full collection of decorative mouldings here.

Environmental Action Group appointed to drive sustainability

We have recently appointed an internal Environmental Action Group to drive our sustainability goals and pledge for a greener future. Amid a turbulent year for the timber trade, Richard Burbidge has appointed an Environmental Action Group to drive our sustainability agenda with the aim to reduce carbon emissions. The impact of climate change combined with the pandemic and Brexit has had a huge impact on the timber industry, with shortages widely publicised and both builders and consumers struggling to get their hands on supplies. Thanks to our long-standing partnerships with domestic and international timber suppliers, we are proud to have been able to maintain a constant supply of certified material into the UK market during these challenging times. Our appointment of the Environment Action Group demonstrates our ongoing commitment to environmental best practice and environmental responsibility. The group is ISO 14001:2015 accredited which confirms its environmental management systems are complaint with the standard’s rigorous requirements. The Environmental Action Group is working towards the ultimate goal of reducing carbon emissions and is currently reviewing its environmental impact. From this, the group will ascertain a baseline and develop a carbon footprint management plan which sets clear measurable objectives, targets, and timescales to becoming net zero. We believe that all of the small changes we make at Richard Burbidge can have a big impact globally. We pledge to make our contribution to a more sustainable future.  The appointment comes as we launch our ‘Sustainability Month’ this September with a range of meaningful eco initiatives, including the launch of a partnership with COAT Paints. Designed using a water-based, low-toxin and solvent free formula, COAT Paints are also animal cruelty free and vegan, as well as being carbon neutral. Sustainability Month is an important initiative for us to help drive awareness of our brand as well as the importance of a sustainable timber trade to preserve the environment. Keep an eye on our website and social channels for more updates.
