Eclectic interior designs may seem difficult to achieve - how to create a diversified space that is not too crazy? Here are our tips that will help shape the modern, eclectic space of your dreams.
Well-arranged, eclectic spaces combine the harmony of seemingly different styles, textures and colors - using several treatments, for consistency. Below you will find a basic guide on how to create sophisticated and not accidental eclecticism in the interior.
The first step is to resist the temptation to buy ready-made home furnishings. Buying a set of furniture can make shopping simple, but it is the easiest way to create the effect of a "showroom". You should therefore avoid buying items from the same collection, while changing styles and suppliers.
In case of doubt, as we usually adhere to the principle of main design as pairing, it will still be possible to organize things in line with some basic guidelines. You can combine different styles of chairs with a similar accent, with a common thread - similar to similar textures or close color palettes. Interesting effects are also due to the use of more furniture, which can combine the remaining elements in an even better way. A good example is the dining room - combining two different styles - like a modern table with classic chairs or a set of chairs, in which each piece of furniture looks different, but all are connected by the same shade of color.
For some of us, the expression of an eclectic interior deletes the use of a suitably chosen palette of colors. However, this is very wrong thinking, because the deliberate use of a gamut of colors is able to combine almost every mix of styles and genres.
The easiest way is to stick to a single, very limited palette, but sufficiently diversified enough that the effect is not monochromatic. You can also choose the method of creating tonal space - inspired by different shades within one main color or derivatives. However, for people who would like to introduce a bit of madness, it is advisable to choose one main element, a characteristic color, which could be used as accents of other equipment - it would result in designing in a certain range of colors. In each of these situations, creating a color palette will help to create space consistency when dealing with many different styles of furniture, designs and accessories.
The selected elements of equipment should be diverse in terms of the type of design to which they refer. We can not be afraid of combining modern chairs with an Art Deco table from the 1920s. If our effect is a less elegant interior, the combination of rustic elements with classic, even French, may be a good choice. It is these blends of interpenetrating design from different eras that makes the eclectic interior come alive.
In eclectic spaces, the premise is to create controlled chaos. One of the ways to add an interesting effect without too much interference in the form is the texture. Visually, it creates a certain level of complexity, without changing the color range or stylistics of the elements used. Mixing multiple textures - smooth surfaces, velvet cushions, natural leathers, patterned fabrics, and wallpaper - ensures appropriate diversity while maintaining the relative restraint of the palette. For people who like a romantic, masculine climate, the brick with dark metal additives can be checked. For those who like glamor in style, it is worth looking at varnished surfaces with plush fabrics like velvet.
The whole sense of creating an eclectic space lies in the fact that the interior is not a copy of catalog interiors or previously designed rooms. Therefore, freedom in combining colors and textures is just as desirable as adding personal elements that reflect who we are and what we like to do. All this helps in creating an individual and unique space.
Identifying elements sneak in small accents and accessories in all spaces - not only on the shelf with books or in the bedroom; giving a chance to shine our personality. Our interiors should be a living testimony of our lives, so let's present knick-knacks, stylish souvenirs and works of loved ones with pride.
