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.
What's really great about using black as an accent is that it can tie a whole lot of pieces together that otherwise don't mesh. For example, you can put a series of photos or pieces of art together that are different styles and colors, and make them work by putting them all in black frames. Even though they're different they instantly become a unit.
Choose Colors and Flair. Depending on the basic style and influence you're going for, colors will range from black and white to red, white, and blue. Consider colors and patterns that go with your theme along with accent colors, whether that includes chocolate browns, floral designs, denim blues, and more.
Size and Scale. When using patterns it's important to think about size and scale. The best looking rooms have a mix. For example, try using a large pattern on a large area such as window curtains or on the walls; medium scale patterns on furniture; and small patterns on small items such as throw pillows. (These rules aren't set in stone, use your judgment based on the room, the pattern, and the place you want to use it).
