Most of us live in rooms that are to some degree, at least, eclectically designed.
This means that our home is not cookie cutter (buying an entire room from a showroom floor for example). It’s not impersonal. We mix old and new, heritage and modern, collected and casual.
The goal with an eclectic design style is to tell the story of our journey which is the best interior design. It shows our personality and gives a visual history of our life and family.
But pulling it all together so it doesn’t look like a hodge-podge can be a challenge.
For this week’s article, I’m sharing the words of LISA FREDERICK, a Houzz Contributor. She gives some excellent advice on how to make the eclectic style of interior design work successfully. You most likely won’t love every photo and that’s O.K. The design principles are sound and will help make sure that you won’t trip over the line between contrast and chaos.
What’s your take on eclectic style? Let me know in the comments.
Until next time…
Blessings from my home to yours,
Dedicated to helping you live your rooms—not the other way around
