Detecting Your Interior Design Style: Ecstatic for Eclectic

Identifying What Your Design Style Is Sorry for the delay in posting, but we had blogs that needed to post last week to be relevant, like our Mother's Day blog, so we pushed the last "Detecting Your Interior Design Style" blog post to this week. I know, I know, you all have been salivating in the meantime, so here you go. :)

If you haven't been keeping up with our blogs, it's not too late to play catch up! Spanning over the last few weeks - with the exception of last week - I unveiled an interior design style in an effort to educate myself and others on what furniture and decor makes said design style. As mentioned many times, I am new to the interior design industry and want to continue sharing the learnings I come across. So, if you haven’t had a chance to take the quick and easy test yet, visit this blog post - it only takes a few minutes. Once you've taken the test and idenitfied what interior style you relate to most, you can read up on interior design styles by reading more about moderntraditional and contemporary interior design.

If you have taken the test and answered mostly “c,” congratulations, you're most drawn to eclectic interiors and decor. Read on to get a better understanding of what eclectic interiors look like.

What Is The Definition Of Eclectic Interior Design?

Eclectic interior design can be defined by being a mash up of all different decor styles, colors, textures and fabrics. Essentially, it doesn't have to have rimer reason and or symmetry, but should have some sort of connective element.

A few things that I’ve picked up on while researching and seeing eclectic interior designs:

  • Your color palette can vary, but a good rule of thumb is to tie your space together with some neutrals
  • You can normally identify an eclectic space by the mix of fabrics, textures and patterns
  • Keep a theme throughout, whether it be a general color or element, like travel - seen below
  • Have fun and there aren't many rules to an eclectic interior design style

I'll be unveiling our next design blog series soon! Here's a hint, it's partially what inspired my Olioboard that I created for eclectic interiors...can you guess it?
