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 is an addition that works with any style you have going, and by simply altering the frames and photographs on the wall, you can usher in an entirely new look. This obviously makes the gallery wall a perfect addition to the eclectic living room that brings together a fusion of decorating styles. Do not underestimate the value of a wall mural, a picture ledge or even a 3D wall art installation in an eclectic space. It could easily end up becoming the showstopper of your new, vivacious living room.

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.

Whether you choose a round or rectangular dining room table, keep in mind that this is a place around which friends and family will gather for food, drink and conversation for hours at a time. As such, it does not need to be over dressed. Dining tables with too many settings and centerpieces can look cheap and cluttered.

Due to its function, homeowners are presented with the unique opportunity to really go above and beyond with their design. However, it can also be easy to err on the side of traditional. In order to break out of your hum drum décor habits, consider a few tips for a dining room that is sure to impress.

Turning the traditional kitchen into a family–friendly hub that promotes interaction and creates a fun hangout, the concept blurs the boundaries between the kitchen and the areas around it. Adding an extended breakfast nook in the kitchen, a small banquet in that lonely forgotten kitchen corner or even a cozy tufted bench next to the window is a great start in getting this accomplished. The idea is to ensure that every member of your family feels comfortable hanging out in the kitchen. One can even add a small workstation or kids’ play area next to the kitchen so that no one is left out. The shape and the ultimate design of a true social kitchen depend on the specific needs of your family. So get creative and make the best use of available space to turn the kitchen into a hip and happening spot in 2015!

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.
