Eclectic Style

Eclectic style is defined as self-confidence.  The eclectic decorator knows what works together by seeing relationships.  An eclectic room may be defined by a play with color, shape or functions.  It is a light hearted style that is never boring.

An eclectic decorating style is easiest to define by what it "is not".  Eclectic style doesn't rigidly adhere to any one major style.  It is characterized by a freedom of expression and a vibrant individuality.

Eclectic style is also great for those individuals who love too much.  If you love the richness of Asian and the serenity of contemporary, you may find these two styles combine in a unique way in your personal eclectic decorating style.

Eclectic decorating is not a jumble of whatever catches your eye.  An eclectic style is full of the unexpected, with hints of at last two of the other main styles included.

Eclectic works works when the basic principles of design are understood and work together to create a unified design.  These 5 principles are:
            1.  Line
            2.  Color
            3. Texture
            4.  Mass
            5.  Form


Think of your eclectic room as a work of art.....

I am working on a new piece for my patio where I can really be eclectic.....  I found a childs' wood
toilet seat at a garage sale and will be transforming it into a plant holder which will hang on the wall.  I have it base coated and so I am ready for the painting design....
