Hey friends and happy Friday! It’s Jordan here and we’re back sharing our Friday Favorites and this time we’re focusing on eclectic style. This is definitely a favorite around here at construction2style and you can see this style all over Morgan’s home.
Most people think eclectic means crazy patterns and colors and that anything goes, but it’s actually a lot more than that. “Eclectic” is a popular adjective in interior design, meaning a decor that combines mixed elements — a variety of textures, time periods, styles, trends, and colors. It’s a fine line between a beautifully eclectic room and a room that is chaotic, with no unifying themes or style.
The nature of eclectic style is varied, but each room in your home should still complement the others. “Carry eclecticism throughout your home to create flow,” suggests Joybird. “Your space will look disjointed if the style changes abruptly from one room to the next.” If you decide your home is ready for an eclectic upgrade, make it a commitment that’s reflected in each room throughout the house.
Patterns are a huge part of the eclectic style, but the be careful not to go overboard with them. Bring in a colorful Moroccan rug, mixed with a fun wallpaper and stripped blanket to create a collage of patterns.

Stick with Texture
Rather than going crazy with color and tons of patterns, bring in multiple textures like wicker, velvet, and wood for a varied look. Having different textures helps bring interest to the space without getting too crazy.

One Go to Color
Having one main color will help ground the space and allow you to make decisions based off that one color. Whether that’s a bold pink or pop of blue, the color you choose should tie into other elements in the space to ensure cohesiveness.

Many people think that eclectic style means you can use all the patterns, all the colors, and all the styles in one room. Rather, it’s having a balance and good amount of each aspect. Use a smaller pattern with more bold colors or bigger pattern with a more neutral palette.
