5. Walls and Floors - for starters, keep the walls and floors neutral. This gives you the freedm to create clashing color and patterns. For those who are bolder, experiment with patterned wallpaper or bold wall color.
7. Fabrics – Keep a medley of prints from geometric to floral to graphic throughout the interior. You can strike a cohesive note with similar color, fabrics or designs for the rest of the interior so there’s gentle coordination.
8. Quirky pieces – Collect and display your favorite quirky pieces to make a bold statement. Put them in a prominent position or put spotlights on them so they blend well as part of eclectic decorating tips.
9. Instinct – Follow your instinct when deciding on the pieces to add to the interior. Creating an eclectic vibe is all about curating your belongings as though they are artifacts in a museum. Look and play with different configurations.
10. Humor – Wit and fun should always be present in an eclectic interior. Go with your instinct when choosing the quirky pieces and putting them together. If it makes you smile, buy it.
