An Eclectic style can be a mélange of any design style or a mix of objects from different eras. Eclecticism differentiates itself from chaos by unifying diverse collections through color, scale, texture, and groupings to make a cohesive room or home. While this style is not minimalist, it requires meticulous thought in its display, so as not to cross the line from “style” to “stuff”.
Elements of design:
- The combination of two or more design styles or eras of design
- Antique and modern furniture, artifacts from different countries, and art collections are grouped together to create interest
- To avoid chaos, a unifying theme such as color, texture, furniture scale, and groupings of similar objects is recommended
