Because at this point we have almost all had enough of the masculinity and strict coldness of minimalism, our team of interior designers is drawn to the freedom of a more versatile interior design, or at least a warmer minimalism.
We reached out to Décor Aid interior designers to help tackle common mistakes when tackling often overwhelming eclectic interior decorating challenges and to avoid common costly mistakes in how a 90s apartment looks Friends.
Layout is the key
To bring together an eclectic mix, our interior designers recommend starting with the foundation of a room, just like you would with any decorating style. More difficult to achieve is all too often getting caught up in a confusing inflammatory mix of elements when trying to find an eclectic style modern hand.
Before you start, check out all of the major furniture you want to see in the room and carefully consider where to place it. This allows you to accurately assess the extra space for new finds, while ensuring that the space remains comfortable and welcoming.
Test your limits
Since eclectic style is about combining elements with wild variations, challenge your aesthetic limits by bringing in unexpected finds that will even surprise you as this is a direction for interior design that is all about refined fun and creates a really unique space that looks like no other.
Since versatile interiors are all about experimenting with a mix and match philosophy that brings together different contrasting elements, you should be open to the possibilities and not make quick decisions. Once a room is filled with furniture, you can really see the mix and see what works and what doesn’t.
Limiting more radical statements to accessories such as throws, objets d’art, carpets, and decorative pieces makes it much easier to swap out the pieces to find a balance to your liking.
Keep your balance
Although the spirit of versatile interior design is unique in itself, it is easy to be overwhelmed by the freedom of aesthetics and unlimited possibilities.
To avoid a random feeling, balance, symmetry and cohesion should be a common thread between every single decor and statement you choose, even if the finds come from different eras and design movements. We recommend setting a set limit on exactly how many different elements will feel in your home to keep the editing well layered yet tight.
Choose a core shade
Choosing a concise main color as a starting point will make it much easier to combine the various elements you come across while using them as a focal point when considering adding new elements to your home.
To avoid confusing color options, trust your instincts in your room as you should already have a quick view of how natural and artificial light emanate from them and what shades of color will make your space bigger and airier.
Keep everything practical
No matter the size of the space you need to work on, remember that you are working on improving your home, not a museum.
Skip the top extras and bring items that you actually use as a space with carefully thought out but beautiful decorative items. They remain easier to live in space than with enigmatic insubstantialities.
If you are determined to take full advantage of eclectic interior design, remember that you should carry elements of aesthetics throughout your home, albeit in tiny doses, to evoke a sense of visual harmony and a random feel at the same time to avoid.
Build around focal points
While eclectic interior design should be the perfect marriage of various elements brought together in a carefully crafted blend, it is important to use accent walls, essential artwork, and architectural elements as focal points to keep the design direction tightly focused.
