Eclectic style interiors are all about combining design trends and time periods together with color, texture, and accessories. They’re artsy, unique and full of personality!
With all that freedom you’d think an eclectic interior would be pretty easy to pull off, but it’s harder than you might think!
My good friends Mae-dee & Sport have a home that is the perfect example of an eclectic interior done right! They combine their love of antiques, reclaimed furniture, accessories & vintage signs into their home decor.
Bringing in elements from different time periods is key for eclectic design. Mid Century Modern and Industrial are the design styles used for this eclectic mix.
The open floor plan has natural boundaries created with furniture. Notice the mix of urban style chairs at the dining table and the modern barstools in the kitchen.
They found the most creative way to re-purpose their collection of furniture. Even the doors have been salvaged, repainted and installed to maintain an authentic look!
Recycled gym lockers are used in the bedrooms and living areas to add visual height and storage to each eclectic space.
Wood & metal pieces combine to create an urban vibe. This heavy industrial credenza anchors the living area and provides plenty of storage.
Mid century modern is experiencing a revival in interior design and doesn’t appear to be slowing down!
This hot pink vinyl chair is to die for! And the DIY lamp adds another texture & trend to this eclectic style interior.
Isn’t the terrazzo in this bathroom fun? Terrazzo is popular now and it was a big trend in the 50’s. For more info on terrazzo read Why We’re Obsessed with Terrazzo Tile Right Now!
Eclectic style interiors need a color scheme to tie everything together. Mae-dee chose a neutral background with modern accents of pink, blue and yellow in each room. The colors are repeated throughout her home for a cohesive look.
Yellow shows up on the backsplash in the kitchen, in the bedrooms, in art & accessories.
Pink runs through the living areas, bedrooms and linens.
These vivid colors pop against the neutral walls and they add a bright, modern element to all the wood and metal.
