An eclectic interior is one that derives its generating ideas, style and taste from a diverse range of sources and creates a harmonious dialogue between all the parts.
Having experienced the freedom presented to them by post modernity, designers are finding it increasingly difficult to return to a ‘single style‘ solution for interiors.
The mixing of styles, periods, materials and finishes is being acknowledged as the way forward. The key to achieving this look successfully is to use pieces of equivalent integrity.
There are so many styles, materials and finishes that now influence modern interiors, it is often the case that they are mixed together to create an eclectic blend. What makes an eclectic interior work well, however, is not simply mixing anything with anything , but mixing things are different but that complement each other in some way.
Eclectic style is rather harmony-like style, where different pieces of furniture, for example, have their unique places. Also, all the elements are in a thoughtful connection with the other parts of the style in the room. It takes effort, thought, and creativity in order to make a project in an eclectic style look great and at the same time logically interconnected.
