How to Recognize Eclectic Interior Design

An eclectic interior typically includes a wide variety of items that if viewed separately, don’t seem to go together at all. The style is recognized for bright colors, visual vibration, and often is a mixture of other styles. 

Fun Facts:

Eclectic style first appeared in the 19th and 20th centuries. It’s incredibly popular today because it’s the combination of multiple styles together in a space. Many eclectic styles include bold colors, funky patterns, and juxtaposition of styles in a space. The eclectic style is also injected with traditional motifs, styles and ornaments from different cultures. These elements add further vibrancy and more layers to the mixed-design space.

Style Clues

This style often includes:

  • Combination of different bold colors
  • A mix of statement prints or patterns  
  • Traditional or simple furniture
  • Aged brass accessories to enhance the appearance of bold colors
