As I’ve been getting older, my tastes have started to change. I may only be turning 28 this year, but it is amazing how someone can become much less influenced by the photos they see in social media. Instead loving the newest trends, I started finding things I do and don’t like from multiple styles. I think this is how the eclectic design style starts. While I care a bit more about things still “going together”, true eclectic fans like what they like it doesn’t matter if they clash.
One of the most iconic ways to show off that eclectic style is multiple colors! In a kitchen, that could be two toned cabinets, where maybe the island is a crazy bold color! Pair with a high pattern back splash or even use a fun wallpaper!
Multiple types of hardware
Another common part of an eclectic style is different types of cabinet hardware on each door. This is a really fun way to get unique pieces and show off your style! Some people pick themes, or a color pallet, but the options are endless!
When I say contrast, I don’t just mean in the form of color. I also mean in styles! (for example, this is why the current trend “modern farmhouse” works so well). Other common tastes are “elegant and masculine”, “Pieces from around the world”, and “modern and traditional”.
