Say yes to eclecticism!
Eclecticism is a style most of us have at home, perhaps without even knowing it. Too often it's adopted by default because we can't pin down our favorite type of decor: we tell ourselves that it's not totally country, or totally modern, and we don't know if our style is more contemporary or more rustic! It's not always easy!
But don't worry: I've studied decorating, I work in decorating, and I still haven't pinned down my own style (it's probably unique on the planet!). I like to be able to change the look of my decor whenever I want! I find this gives my house personality, and makes me feel at home. You have the right not to have a specific style - that's exactly what eclecticism means!
But what is eclecticism?
Eclecticism basically is a mix of styles: it mixes modern and traditional, or contemporary and a touch of rustic! Give yourself the right not to have a very specific style and make eclecticism more than a style by default, but a style of your own!
But eclecticism can also mean
You're not trying to make a pizza. On the other hand, you don't want to settle for just one accent color per room. Multicolored rooms aren't necessarily made for children!
Often, people don't dare to mix raw materials with high-gloss materials. But in the eclectic style, you can get away with this. With eclecticism, you can dare to experiment with high contrasts!
You can have a bit of fun with patterns! Once again, the goal isn't to knock yourself dizzy with too many colors, patterns or styles. Bear in mind that you must maintain a certain guideline (style, colors or patterns). Choose just one, and let your creativity loose!
For me, eclecticism means daring
We often forget about our floor, but this is also a surface that can be decorated in its own way!
Ultimately, eclecticism is available to everyone, and this may already be the style you have at home!
Say yes to eclecticism! ;)
