Eclectic Apartment Décor Pieces
Browsing for intriguing eclectic apartment décor while sipping your morning coffee can be an exciting and inspiring journey. In fact, it can feel a lot like taking a fantastic leap down a rabbit hole, especially with so many helpful Pinterest boards to explore to help you hone in on objects you didn’t even know you needed that are worthy of your affection.
Not sure what eclectic apartment décor or style is? It’s a thing, we promise. The best definition we have found for eclectic style is “a careful gathering of interesting elements that work together.” You could have eclectic apartment décor and not even know it!
Typical characteristics of an eclectic style space include:
• A variety of décor items from different periods and styles
• Neutral colors in the background (for the walls, some furniture, etc.)
• Use of materials and/or items that might be unexpected
• Uniqueness items
• A “pulled together,” cohesive look through materials like pattern, shape, texture, finish or color
• No clutter – everything is easily stored in its own place
• Modern, new items mixed in with the vintage, old
• Items with sentimental value
• Contrasts (a bright couch set against neutral walls, neutral pillows on a colored couch, etc.)
