Dani Dazey, the Los Angeles-based designer behind Palm Springs’ famed Trixie Motel, has partnered with Joybird to bring her vision to a line of furnishings currently on view at the company’s Melrose and DTLA showrooms. Luxe finds out more about Dazey’s passion for maximalism.

Describe your style. My work is heavily influenced by vintage design. Two of my favorite eras to tap are Art Deco and the 1970s. 

Your advice for someone afraid of color and pattern? Bold design elements impact your everyday life, whether it’s a daring choice that empowers you or a happy color that lifts your mood. Just start small! 

How do you define maximalism? It’s about adorning your interiors with things that bring you joy, not about doing what others do. Trust your gut and you’ll know what to get and when to stop. And your home will be a space that celebrates you.
