How To Go Eclectic Without Going Too Far

Many people are starting to go with more eclectic home décor designs. Some people do it very poorly and end up being disappointed or bored within a couple of months. Others don’t go for it because they worry that they’re going to do it wrong. There are a lot of ways that you can give your home an eclectic feel without worrying about “doing it wrong.”

One of the best ways for you to bring together a room is to create a focus. When you think of eclectic, you likely are not thinking of focus, but trust me on this one. There are a lot of things that you can focus on in order to bring an eclectic design together. One thing that some interior designers use to bring a room together is color.

If you focus on a certain color or range of colors, then the odd designs you are bringing together won’t seem as out of place. Another way to do this is to have a certain part of the design that is the same – a certain type of print, a certain material, a similar place of origin, or even a certain logo or animal across everything that can help to create uniformity in eccentricity.

Another way for you to make sure that an eclectic room does not look odd is to make sure that it is not overflowing with different items. The issue that many amateur designers have with creating an eclectic look is that they assume it means “thrown together,” when it really doesn’t. If you have too many items or too many different ideas in a particular area, it will create a sense of clutter or haphazardness instead of feeling like the room was actually focused on and thought about.

Lastly, you need to make sure that you keep everything simple. Some people will use loud colors and odd designs and call it eclectic, whereas it’s actually more obnoxious than it is eclectic. Let the randomness come from what you decide to put in the room, but keep the colors and such muted so that it has a more comfortable feel.

Overall, creating an eclectic look for your home can be really fun and exciting. If you’re an amateur at home décor, it can really push what you know and allow you to be creative and explore your design boundaries. Plan it out, think it through, and you can get a really neat and unique feel by going eclectic.
