What does eclectic decor mean? It means a space without rules, where old meets new, stripes meet animal prints, neutrals meet brights and anything you want to include in the decor is possible and welcome! Of course, you can’t just mess everything up, and it takes some common themes to create a cool design. Today’s summary will help you make your bedroom stylish and versatile.
Eclectic shouldn’t be extremely light as it’s tasteless. Also, a bedroom should be a little quieter so you can sleep comfortably. If you love brights, keep the walls and floors neutral to avoid sensory overload—a no-no in the bedroom. Mix and match your palette to your heart’s content, but spread your base colors throughout the room. For example, in the bedroom shown here, pink is used on the bed and in each piece of artwork, while the bench, lamp, and artwork appear golden and yellow.
A versatile bedroom has many patterns. The key to successfully mixing designs is matching at least one color throughout and choosing patterns that work well together. In general, you will find that geometric shapes, stripes or dots work very well with nature motifs such as animal motifs, flowers, fern or leaf patterns, and bird or animal motifs. If you want to go crazy with color and pattern, keep the walls white or stick them firmly to the bed and window treatments.
Mix furniture styles
What defines the eclectic look the most is a mix of different styles combined to complement each other. Fill your bedroom with pieces you love, even if they’re not traditional matches. Be aware – balance and size are key in this style of decorating. Your furniture may not be from the same decade – or even the same century – but it needs to be in harmony with the space and each other.
