Decorating Tips. Second-hand furniture can be painted and then sanded lightly to give it a distressed look. Slipcovers for sofas and chairs are an easy way to bring English country style patterns and color into the room without buying new furniture.
Black as an Accent. It's important that every room have just a little bit of black. It has a grounding effect that gives the eye a place to rest. When you have too many light and airy colors with nothing to ground them they can almost appear to be floating. It can be confusing to the eye.
Fabrics on furniture and pillows are usually textured, rather than shiny. Interesting weaves of natural fibers like cotton, linen, wool are typical. New synthetic weaves give a natural look and add durability.
These people like what they like, decor wise, and they aren't afraid to put it all out there--even if it goes against more popular styles of decorating, such as contemporary or farmhouse. Because of this premise, many mistake the eclectic style as an anything-can-go way of decorating, but the true eclectic style is a very purposeful and well thought-out way of decorating. Think of eclectic style as a borrowing of various styles while creating a cohesive look through color, texture and/or shape. A good definition of eclectic style decorating is “a careful gathering of interesting elements that all work together.” Really, it's not just throwing things together, though the look may feature things that may not go together. The eclectic decorator knows exactly how to smooth out the bumps with oddball textures and furnishings so it looks awesome...kind of like a Pier One Imports store.
