An eclectic look is more than mixing and matching random design elements. It's a well though out array of textures, colors, style & vintages.
People often use the word "eclectic" to mean a bunch of random pieces thrown together with no though as to harmony and design. And that is not true!
(The furniture shown in this picture is a traditional but the twist is the bold contemporary fabric they used on the settee)
An eclectic style is a careful mix of old and new, casual and formal, rustic and elegant, put together in a way to create a beautiful style and mood. It's perfect for people who have collected unusual items on their travels or who have sentimental family treasures, or who have received unique and beautiful gifts from friends or family.
(This shows you the balance between traditional & contemporary furniture, fabric & color)
It's also ideal if you're just starting out in your first apartment.
(Here we have a mix of vintage, contemporary and rustic design all in one room)
The key is to design a balanced look is with a few strong focal points, not a hodgepodge that just seems cluttered.
Would love to add these eclectic pieces to my home...
