The Eclectic Room

A beautifully successful eclectic room takes more effort than one might think.  Though it looks as if it were thrown together in a hodgepodge, willy-nilly way, it has not been.  It’s actually been carefully thought out and created around one particular style.  The hodgepodge comes from the other styles that are mixed in to support the main look.  

Since the eclectic design blends elements from many styles, start with neutral palettes that let you accessorize the room with pops of color.  Carry that through with diverse textures to tie the different decorating styles together.  You can easily swap out the accessories with different colors as seasons or moods change.
