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.

This common quality could come in the shape of a neutral backdrop, a few bold colors that are repeated throughout the room or geometric symmetry created by the placement of the decor. In small living rooms, make sure you pick a few fundamental elements and repeat them to give the room a more pleasing ambiance.

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.

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.

Table or pendant lamps are a great place to start. Match lampshades with surrounding decorative colors and then mimic these colors in window treatments, bedding, and area rugs. Area rugs are a creative way to bring a burst of color and can change seasonally or whenever your little one gets them dirty! Another great idea is to take colors found in the decor and frame pictures of the same materials or colors. This bedroom has used the orange, purple, and green as the theme and utilized color blocking in the textiles as well as the wall decorations. This is a simple way to infuse colors in a multitude of ways.

Secondly, do not be afraid to choose chairs that boast bright colors or bold patterns – especially if your table and place settings are somewhat subdued. If you’re not prepared to invest in brand new chairs, consider reupholstering older chairs with a durable and trendy new fabric. You can further personalize your dining room by choosing chairs with interesting shapes. For small dining rooms, consider seating made from acrylic – this helps give the illusion of additional space.

There used to be a time when girl bedding came in hundreds of choices and boys bedding were limited to a select few. Today gender neutral bedding is quite the trend and thank goodness for all the parents who love non–traditional nurseries! Neutral grays, black and white, orange, chocolate brown, and turquoise are some of the latest color palettes that are popping up in modern nursery bedding. Go ahead and choose the colors you love and be don’t let the gender of your baby hinder your choices.

Vivacious reds paired with brilliant turquoise, emerald greens coupled with dazzling gold and pops of bright yellow laced into a backdrop that is distinctly orange; color is an integral part of most eclectic living rooms. Even though most homeowners prefer a more contemporary–eclectic style with grays and whites shaping the backdrop, a more boisterous approach does seem way more fun. Remember that eclectic is a style defined by ‘you’ and not any particular designer or trend. Pick colors that you truly love and paint a picture that is truly spellbinding. A good way to bring together these contrasting hues is by picking furniture with similar shape and outline. This approach works well in most modern–eclectic living spaces and if you want to throw in a curve ball, a tone–on–tone approach to decorating is another great alternative.
