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.

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.

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.

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.
