Eclectic Style

A Style For Those Who Want It All

Eclectic style is about mixing rather than matching, though all design elements should coordinate to achieve a look that is fresh and avant-garde. Eclectic style is the fingerprint of innovation and creativity. Borrowing from different sources and periods, eclectic style is a highly individualized style and is easily changed on a whim. A person with an eclectic style is a person with a lot of favorites who finds a way to indulge in them all. Purple and pink together? Why not? Modern and traditional furniture? Absolutely. The eclectic minded person finds a way to have it all and make it make it visually cohesive. Eclectic style is casual and approachable, making it a natural choice for home or business decor. The unexpected is always the focal point; here, the modern red pendant lamp gives the room a super hip and modern look, while the bubblegum pink walls vie for your attention. The cruel, hard edge of the desk is offset by the chair’s welcoming curves and plush fabric. Far from generic, eclectic style is the harmony in contrast. Experiment with eclectic style in your home; assess what you consider your “favorites” and unleash your inner artiste.
