The New Ecclectic

Tuesday, December 3, 2013

You've seen the gorgeous rooms in traditional soft neutrals or dialed down in minimalist chic.  They are all gorgeous and high end, and they feel somewhat unattainable.  Well welcome to the age of the eclectic!  Expression and style at its finest!  These are truly livable spaces with incredible balances between eras, cultures and colors.  


In this full flavor design style you'll see designer furnishings next to flea market finds.  You surround yourself with things you love and mix and match until you find what works for you.  It's a showcase of personality, visual appetite and life.


The new eclectic can be refined and sophisticated with smooth combinations of color and finishes as well as subtle variations in style.


Above is a great example of mixing color, patterns, eras, cultures and creating a beautifully livable space.


Often we are afraid to express ourselves in our decor.  Now is the best time to drop that fear.  If you decide to take your decor eclectic just remember that this style is about trying new things and if something doesn't work, that's o.k!  You simply nix it and try the next idea until you find your bliss.


"Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful."
                                                    - William Morris


Feed your need for a touch of whimsy with through fantastic furnishings, art and color play.


This design style is about fun and pushing limits.  It's the Carrie Bradshaw of interiors.  Be brave and surround yourself with the things you love.
