It is not necessarily that this everything should be appealing, great or liked by everyone around. People have their own tastes in doing or creating things, which may be attracted by one group of people while refused by the other. Style or design is one of those life spheres, where thoughts and tastes of the people may differ.
There is a movement in the field of art called Eclecticism. In spite of the fact that this art movement might not be recognized as a separate style in the world of design, for many people eclecticism is still perceived as a separate and distinct movement.
Eclectic style interior design is the way to go if you just can’t choose one style.Eclectic is a mix of styles and eras. This fabulous house is a great example eclectic style that encompasses a variety of periods and styles and is brought together through the use of color, texture, shape and finish.
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.
The palette can vary, but it’s best to stick with a few neutrals to help tie all the elements together. In the red and gold room pictured, creams and browns are used to ground the palette so the great design isn’t lost among the many hues.
Lines, finishes and materials of the pieces in a room are tied together with paint, fabric or a more refined or roughed-up finish.
An eclectic look is partly defined by the multitude of fabrics, whether they be patterned, textured or both. Choose a color scheme and stick with a neutral as your grounding force, and add to it with colored and textured solids and patterns and trims, tassels or fringe.
A combination of finishes and textures sets an eclectic look apart from the rest. The burnished bronze lamp bases contrast with a black-and-white box but tie in with the golden tones in the ceiling and wall behind.
