Eclectic Furnishing is the chance for all of us who have problems to decide for a trend in our living room. It does not mean chaos or kitschy furniture, like a lot of people, falsely think, more it is the art of mixing different furniture styles.
To walk on the balanced line of Eclectic in your furniture mixture is not a easy task at all, that is why we call it art. You need the exact mixture of furniture and decor elements in different styles to design your perfect living room. The good thing: to mix older elements with new ones is wanted, so you are able to use every piece of your past and now. The ideal composition gives the room an intensive personality.
Are you prepared for arranging all the pieces to a harmonious overall package? Let us start with some advice for this tricky trend:
1. Use a white base
Start with a neutral base, like here with the white wall color. With the adding of all the different elements, it will get their color itself. If you would choose a color for your wall you will directly restrict yourself in your coming room designing, and that’s absolutely not what we want, or?
2. The determiner
The determiner is really important in your style mixture. You should be very sure about your decision because it gives a certain style of direction for the rest of the interior design.
In the next step, it is very important to arrange a balanced between the main element, the sofa, and the rest of the furniture and decor in your interior desing. That means that the rest of the interior should have something similar to the determiner if it is the material, the shape or something else does not matter. A good example you see in the material of the sofa and the armchair, both of them have they’re materially quilted, which gives the same style character. As well, the fabric of the pillows on the sofa and the fabric of armchair is similar.
4. Add some little details
Add home accessories that allow the eye to see and experience a lot and avoid that even a rigid look can arise, the entire design of the piece plays a big role, whether it is a memorable or impressive one. Accessories are the perfect cut for your furniture mixture and make your living room your private, special one.
We hope you got a better understanding of eclectic furnishing and you like it just like us!
