Use charming or cute sheets, bought from a discount store, to sew window treatments, a crib skirt, chair cover, or a baby blanket. Use pieces of board, sanded and painted, for wall shelves. Look at pictures and see what you can do for yourself. You'll be amazed!
For starters, casual rooms have simple details, textured elements in fabrics and accessories, restful horizontal lines, soft upholstery, low-luster surfaces, and arrangements that avoid perfect symmetry. Details are simple, and elements are rectangular or softly curved. A room decorated in a casual style is the perfect place to have a touch of whimsey. Use an old or reconstructed birdhouse or wooden candlestick for a lamp base, stack pieces of old luggage for a side table, use a low vintage ironing board for a coffee table.
Use on pillows, tablecloths, curtains, or upholstery for small occasional chairs. Victorian homes tended to be overly decorated, and this included placing doilies and lace over nearly every surface. This helped reflect the rich status of the homeowner and showed off their style and taste.
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.
