The misconception among many homeowners is that by not committing to any particular style and by randomly putting together your favorite pieces of decor one can create an eclectic living space. This could not be more far off from the truth, as eclectic style demands as much, if not a lot more, discipline than any other decorating style around. Sure, it throws convention out the window, mixes contrasting hues, styles, textures and even eras together in a charming and cheerful setting, but it still needs to be carefully curated. That is the mantra; with an eclectic living room, you are showcasing your effervescent and unique personality in a ‘curated’ fashion. We do not kid when we say that this is a style that is far harder to master than many others simply because there are no set rules and rigidly defined boundaries. It is all about achieving that perfect balance between order and chaos, contrast and cohesion, method and madness.

It has been a season of warm metallic hues with gold, copper and bronze replacing the usual suspects such as silver and chrome. This trend has made a significant impact in both the world of fashion and the world of interior design, and expect it to continue on this merry path all through 2015 as well. For the kitchen, think of faucets and fixtures in bright golden hues to bring a dash of luxury without going over the top. Lighting fixtures such as the Tom Dixon pendants in shiny copper are also a great choice.

Even though the room is a carefully constructed blend of three or four styles, let one of them shine out and dominate the setting. It is often the backdrop, the style of decor and their silhouette that define the design style that is the loudest among the lot. A refined, neutral backdrop with furniture that has clean, straight lines shouts out modern or contemporary, while flowing curves, bold colors and intricate patterns take you to vintage and classic themes.

Some nights you may prefer a romantic candlelight dinner while other occasions may call for heavier lighting. Consider a chandelier with a dimmer as well as smaller side lamps or wall sconces. Also, remember that your choice of lighting fixture is yet another way to show off your personal decor tastes.

It is an understandable phenomenon with contemporary style influencing many of the designs. White also lets the accent hues that you add to the space shine that much brighter! But over the past few years, the color spectrum has slowly started moving towards the other end, and this year gray began taking over. In 2015, we go a step further with black becoming the sought–after shade in the kitchen. Black brings an air of sophistication to the kitchen and gives it a sleek, bold aura. If you are not too happy about using black extensively and feel it turns the kitchen into a sterile space, then use it to highlight details and anchor a kitchen that is draped in cool neutrals. Black cuts across different styles ranging from farmhouse and industrial to contemporary and minimal. And for those who prefer a more timeless look, there is always the option of a classy black and white kitchen.

Yet there are many different ways to go eclectic while allowing the style to blend in nicely with the rest of your more modern home. An eclectic living room, especially a small one, need not be filled with furniture and accessories beyond necessity. In small living rooms, try and choose a bold couch, a coffee table with a metallic glint and a plush rug with a splash of color to create the same visual impact while keeping the space visually uncluttered.
